Hello everybody! I was planning on bringing a soft sided cooler on board to hold a few bottles of wine and a bottle of rum for DH and I. However, I got our packet from Disney in the mail yesterday and they say TWICE in the papers "no coolers allowed except for medicine or baby food" and "no coolers with personal items such as sodas or food". I thought I had read several times on the boards about people being able to take the soft coolers on board as long as they would fit through the secruity machines.

Does anybody have any recent experience with this? Thanks in advance!!!

They have always had that in the literature, but never turn away soft sided ones (no ice). They kind they do not allow is hard coolers *unless for medical reasons, as you stated.

Does anyone know the size limitations? Disney outlet has a softsided cooler with rollers on sale right now but I'm not sure I want to splurge if it will be too big.

Basically it has to fit through the scanner, like at an airport.

My DCL Birnbaum's guide says 9 in by 14 in by 22 in is the max size. The cooler on disneyoutlet says it's 14&1/2 by 14 by 13&1/2. I ordered one, though, before I checked the limitations. Not sure if I'm going to take the chances or not.

We brought on a soft sided rolling cooler with 72 cans in it. It almost didn't fit through the scanner :scared1: ! When you first enter the terminal you are going to see signs that say "no alcohol". I almost died! (knowing that we had a ton of it in our carry-ons.) But they put it through the scanner and sent us on our way. No problem!:)

Okay so I got my cooler from the disneyshopping in the mail today. It is kind of big but I have no idea what's allowed. The pp said their cooler had over 70 cans and it doesn't look like this one could fit that much in it!! Do you think I'll be okay?

I like that the bottom actually folds too. I think I'm going to have to put it in my suitcase for the flight down!!
