i´ve read a lot of tips that recommend to take to WDW IOA and Universal some snacks, bottled water, so you can save some money.
i was thinking in a small soft side cooler that i have to place tha watter bottles ( fits only 4 water bottles). i was considering to take some sandwiches too.
i am allowed to take sandwiches and that small cooler inside he parks?
the other question is if i am allowed to bring this cooler where can i store it if i am getting in a ride with my wife ..
Sorry for this newb questions.. and thanks for your help

From the list of Items NOT Allowed...
Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high. (Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.)
Universal's What to bring:
From Anthony MurphyI would just bring a backpack and putting water bottles in there/

One way to keep them cool I found was to wrap them in foil or freeze them the night before!
They really do not want you to bring snacks inside the park unless they are for fussy children or medically needed (diabetes, for example)
They will check your backpack, but mostly for weapons and stuff. It should be fine, but I guess it depends on who checks your bag!
From Pyra Dongto continue from Anthony- ... and bagpacks are easier to lug around the hot Florida sun. Of course, don't bring a buffet in your bag. The bag checkers are more concerned with what could be a weapon than food. (YAHHHH!!! Killer water bottle!!!) BUT they do kinda frown on food-- but most likely they won't make ya toss it.

To ease the tension, I would personally spread the snacks out throughout all the members of your party.
