The Mean Squinty Eye Works
- Jul 6, 2004
I know Disney Park's mom's panel is not always an accurate source with respect to Disney policy but here is something I found:
Has anyone been kicked out of eating areas or seen people kicked out when using their personal food instead of the quick service restaurant's food? I have not noticed any signs restricting the areas to Disney food only.
I've never noticed anyone attempting to eat in an area with their own food when it is being monitored by CM's and they are only allowing guests with food to occupy a table. I'm wondering if someone with their own food would be allowed to sit since they "have their food and are ready to eat".
Is there an official Disney policy on this that someone can reference?
On some occasions they won't even let you into the seating area until you purchase food. They will have CMs who don't let you sit.
As to an official policy, I'm not sure if there is one. However I wouldn't take food from home and go eat it at McDonalds. Very tacky. And there shouldn't need to be a written rule for people to get that. Not every eatery at WDW is run and owned by WDW.
And yeah, the Mom's panel is outright wrong with lots of things. They used to let you comment on their posts, but so many were being told they were wrong or inaccurate they stopped allowing it. Disney doesn't even verify the things they post, which is ridiculous.
