    Loved this post with its great tips. However, I was curious as to why the statement that you can’t bring your own food into places like a state fair or DisneyLand. I’ve never encountered a place yet that didn’t allow a small backpack and we carry one everywhere we go. In it is water and all the food we could possibly want or need for two people. A couple of ice packs keeps everything cold all day especially if one of the water bottles is frozen at the start. We’ve NEVER had a problem or been told we couldn’t bring in the pack. It’s treated no differently than a purse.

    For us, it’s a combination of wanting to eat healthy and refusing to pay the exorbitant prices for food that is mediocre at best!!

      Good point, I didn’t even mention the extreme COSTS of buying food there.

      I’ve seen signs at different things that said “no outside food” so I wasn’t sure. Of course, if that’s not an issue I totally recommend bringing a backpack with snacks and water like you do.

    We went to Disneyland in May and I was happy to see lots of fruit stands, with fresh fruit, pickles, etc.

    Disney does not stop you from bringing food into the park! When we were there I brought Greek yogurt and turkey slices into the park. Six Flags has a policy but I’ve never been stopped. Another thing we do is bring in empty water bottles so then we can continue refilling them all day.

      That’s great to hear about Disney. And yes, water bottles are an excellent idea too. I keep forgetting to do that when I fly and end up spending $4 on a bottle of water in the airport…

    Great tips! I always wish places like this would offer more healthy options!

      When I went to the Texas State Fair last year EVERYTHING was fried. If you wanted a banana it was deep fried. 🙂

    I spend much of my days in the Disney theme parks. I have never been stopped from bringing in my food. No glass containers. That is the only rule on food and beverages. Oh, and you cannot bring in your own alcohol. I am very careful to have something with me each time. The ice cream stands and chocolate shops call to me much louder than the few measly fruit stands.

      That’s great to know! I would totally bring all my own food, then. And yes, the ice cream and chocolate options would be hard for me to resist. I think only the PRICE of them would deter me. LOL
