Default Can you take Food into Lagoon?

Does anyone know if you can still take a cooler of food and water into the Lagoon Park? Thanks

Yes you can! People bring big coolers and leave them in the picnic areas all the time.

Just beware--we were there a couple of weeks ago and took our nice wheeled Igloo cooler with some drinks and food in it. We had reserved a terrace and family members left coolers there all day while we were in and out. Our cooler was there when my SIL left at 9:15 and when we went to get it at 9:45 it was gone! Why do people think they're entitled to stuff that isn't theirs?? Makes me mad! Keep coolers in your car or my 8yo DS had the idea to use a bike lock to chain it to a post next time. Have fun!

We've always kept ours in the car and gone out to get it to eat. We do bring it inside to eat.

We've taken a cooler for years, and always leave it at one of the terraces with no problem. Maybe your food looks better than mine.

And/or maybe it's because we always drape a wet beach towel over the cooler to keep it cold (think evaporative cooler.) The eeww factor of someone else's wet towel may keep thieves away. We like having the cooler where we can come by and get a drink whenever we're thirsty. (Cooler full of FREE Dr Pepper....Thanks PYP!)

We've ALWAYS taken a cooler and left it in the terrace, too. I'm sad to hear that those times might be changing. I've always thought it was so nice that I didn't have to worry about anything!
