Ways to have thrifty theme park thrills - Pack your own snacks.
"Disney does allow you to bring food items, and you are permitted a backpack or small, soft-side cooler," Bobby says.
"If you don't want to carry it around all day, the parks all have lockers where you can store it till ready!"
Put together protein-rich trail mix, your favorite sliced-and-diced fruits and other great grub. Each theme park has different rules. Some water parks and theme parks do not allow any outside food or beverages or have restrictions about glass containers or the size of coolers. Check the park's Web page or call before you go.
