    That's not the reason at all ...

    It's to avoid getting sandwiched in the narrow confines of the Nemo subs.

    Re: No Outside Food Allowed at DCA? Or not....

    I don't get why it should matter to anyone if that family, or any family, brings in outside food.



    Also, I think we've established that the bag checks are there solely for the illusion of safety.

    So do you think having Pizza Hut delivered to ToT would be completely out of line?
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Uh huh... So the people that they HAVE stopped from bringing dangerous stuff into the parks were not for real safety?


    Ok, the policy that I know for food at the bag check. If your family is bringing in just some pre-made sandwiches and snacks, you are ok. But if it is a full meal (fried chicken, potato salad and apple pie), you are getting escorted over to the picnic area where you will store your food and can also enjoy it later in the day. And that second policy is what should have been done for the family with the KFC. Now, granted, I have run out to the Rainforest Cafe and ordered to go at the bar and brought that back into the DCA Farmers Market area for a friend and really should not have been allowed, we were ok to do that.

    But then I also did see a woman walking around with a big pizza box on Main Street last night. Who knows...

    What people?
    If someone wants to bring in a gun, he/she can simply strap it to a leg under loose pants. The bag check is nothing more than the illusion of safety.

    I don't know what is crazier... that they got through bag check with it or that they felt it was fine to sit at one of the most visible tables in the park with it. I mean, we've gotten stopped at bag check before for carrying brownies. All I know is I'm keeping this picture on my camera in case I ever have trouble with bag check ever again

    mmm mmm. I don't blame them for bringing in food like kfc. kfc is making me hungry now.

Of course you can bring in outside food or drink as long as it's not in glass or metal containers. They paid to get into the park, so they have every right to sit at a table and eat food... of just to sit at a table. They're not taking a table away unjustly... the tables are for everyone whether you bought food or not.

    Not everyone is doing as well financially and can 'swallow' the cost of food at the parks as easily as some of us. Even a family of Four on a 2fer pass paid $264 or more just to walk in the gates (and I mean walk, since the $264 doesn't include parking), and that'd be a HUGE chunk out of my family's budget... adding another $60 for a meal above that???


    The comments of "it's 2fer time" are far more disgusting to me than a family bringing in outside food, and that someone felt they had to take a photograph of it and post it here so that we all can snicker at them behind their backs.

    Really.
    I hope for much better than that from the Disneyland online family.

    I do understand that Disneyland is a privelege, but I agree that the tone of this thread was really sad to me. Yes, they were breaking rules, yes they should have eaten this in the picnic area. Still, the tone of folks here was depressing. Priveledge should be accompanied by humility, one should remember, "there but the grace of God go I."

    They do sell whole pizzas at the Pizza Port, so that may be your answer.

    I personally do not have a problem with people bringing food into the park for whatever reason (health, taste, cost). BUT I do have a problem when these same people take up limited table space to eat their meal.

    For example if I am purchasing food at Bengal BBQ and someone else is just sitting there eating there brought in meal from elsewhere outside of the park. Shouldn't I get priority over being able to sit at a table to eat my meal while it is still hot?

    Not always, and not always in the area they were eating in.

    That area is notoriously bad for finding a table, as is Taste Pilots.

    If they wanted to go to a corner of the park (McD's, etc) where it wasn't so evident, I'd have no problem with that.

    I'd be willing to say that this family WAS stopped at bag check, WAS told they needed to go to the Picnic area and threw a fit at bag-check and were let in.

    Of course, I don't know that for sure, but I could see it happening.

    I've seen on more than one occasion when leaving or getting something from the car people having "picnics" in their car with food they brought, etc.

    THAT is what your supposed to do, or eat it in the Picnic area.

    On really busy days there are not always tables, and honestly Disney provides tables exactly for this type of stuff in the picnic area. There is a difference between bringing in a sandwich for your kid or some crackers for a snack and bringing in an entire meal, and plopping down at a table which should be used by Guests paying for a Disney meal inside the park, possibly meaning that family that paid for he Disney food has no where to sit. It really is disrespectful IMO.

    Blatently going against the rules is all of a sudden an accepted thing now because the economy is bad and people can't afford to eat Disney food? I realize its a small rule, but bringing in a bottle of water is not the same as bringing in an entire meal. I just don't agree its ok to openly breaks rules like this just because their food is expensive at the expense of Guests that are following the rules and either buying Disney food or leaving the park to eat their brought meal.

    A little piece of heaven

    Hey! Unless that is you and your family and you need to defend them, try to be a little nicer in people expressing their opinions. And to be honest, there is a lack of seating at DCA as a whole.

    I don't care if they're sitting there doing absolutely nothing. The tables are not expressly saved for people who purchased food. They're for anyone to sit down as they wish. There's no "minimum" at the tables like this. You may need to be seated at Blue Bayou and the like, but outside seating in open areas is, well... open. You won't find a sign anywhere that says 'tables reserved for paying customers of the Bengal Bar-B-Q'.

    Re: No Outside Food Allowed at DCA? Or not....

    Yes but out of courtesy, it's nice to give up your seat to those that are eating from that particular area, if you're just sitting there. Eating, that's different. But those that are just taking a load off....find a bench.

    But outside food...that's what the picnic area is for!!
