    As for freezing water the night before I remember hearing that it isn't good to do this. Something about how the plastic in the bottle leaches into the water as it melts.

    Anyway bringing outside food into the parks isn't a new phenomenon. It's been happening since at least the early 70s. I remember my mom and my brothers eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches outside iasw from as far back as then.

    Ok so I digress. Theres my contribution -- peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Take two pieces of slice bread, white or wheat. Spread one slice with peanut butter. Spread the other with any jam or jelly you prefer. Combine the two slices. Put in a sandwich bag (or if you want to experience the early 70s again wrap in wax paper). Enjoy.

    Not a recipe...but a tip.

    Our kid is MEGA picky. So, finding stuff for her to eat in the park is a pain in the butt 90% of the time...but I found some snacks that REALLY help.

    Peanut butter crackers
    Beef Jerky
    granola bars(ones without chocolate on hot days cause the chips tend to melt)
    juice boxes or capri suns
    Mio water additives are GREAT
    cereal bars
    dried fruit
    all of these are usually found in individual serving packets which make it super easy to reach into the bag and pull one or two out and eat while walking to rides.

    Fiber One makes great little brownies and cookies that are healthy AND yummy

    and I think it's Little Debbie that makes these cool teeny blueberry muffins that come in little pouches. It's SUPER easy to grab a pack of those and a juice box and they can have a nice little breakfast while they are walking through the parks (and are FINALLY fully awake)

    Oh and another tip...PLEASE remember..that outdoor tables at restaurants are for people paying to eat THAT restaurant's food. Picnic tables are located right outside the gates. There is nothing more annoying than shelling out $$ for Disney food and then not being able to find a place to sit and eat because picnickers have taken up all the tables. Please be courteous to those around you!

    It's not so much a food recipe but my mom builds snack backpacks. She buys cheap 5 dollar backpacks for everyone going and fills it with granola bars, a sandwich container with a disney character on it (we make our own sandwhichs) assorted candy items, water bottles, drink mixes, gum, mints, etc. She also brings a giant tub filled with all the snacks so we can refill our backpacks each morning in the hotel room.

    You're not. It clearly states in the park guide that food is not allowed in the parks. Some feel the rules don't pertain to them and do it anyways.

    Hm. Well, I don't eat full meals of packed food in the park. We go out and use the picnic area. The only items I will eat within the park are small fruit and nut bars, my kale chips and some water from our refillable filtered water bottle.

    More often than not, we store lunch in a cooler in the car and have dinner at one of the more reasonable restaurants.

    I know everybody likes to feed the ducks (and I have been guilty of it) but human food is not good for the ducks, especially
    the greasy fries even though they are sweet potato there at Hungry Bear.

    They check your bags and packs on the way in.

    If that rule was hard and fast,
    they would not allow any of your drinks and snacks in,
    and word would quickly spread.

    As it stands, it is obvious that they are okay with people bringing in their own food and drink,
    but reserve the right to deny it in the case of some nitwit trying to smuggle in half his refrigerator.

    To OP concerning staying "on topic":
    Calm down. None of this is that important.

    From the Disneyland website:
    Can I bring food into Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park?
    If you wish to bring your own food and enjoy an outdoor meal in an ideal setting, there is a complimentary Picnic Area conveniently located outside the Main Entrance to Disneyland Park.
    With the exception of food items for Guests with specific dietary restrictions, food or beverage items are not permitted into either of the Disneyland Resort theme parks.

    They're not checking for food...they're checking for security purposes.

    Thanks for the ideas! We usually eat breakfast at our hotel, pack a lunch and then eat dinner in the parks. A quick tip...making sandwiches on frozen bread keeps them a bit cooler until lunch! ...And no, they won't get soggy.

    When DIP Jr was a toddler there was a nature store in Tustin that sold duck food, made specifically for feeding ducks. I don't know if it is still there. IIRC it was called Acorn Naturalists or something to that effect. I used to get emails from them but I don't anymore so maybe they went out of business. I don't know because I don't go that way that often anymore.
