IAAPA's Tips to Plan for Meals and Souvenir Shopping

  • Ask about menu options. Many parks offer healthy, allergen-free, or gluten-free items.
  • Avoid traditional peak meal times.
  •  If it’s hot, eat several small meals throughout the day.
  • Check package deals. Some offers include a meal plan or buffet option.
  • Call ahead and ask about the park’s picnic policy. Some parks will let you bring food in.
  • Escape the heat with a shopping break.
  • Look for seasonal sales.
  • Ask about packaging/delivery options to avoid carrying bags throughout the park.
  • Season pass holder? Ask about discounts, parks often give discounts on merchandise and food to season pass holders.
