The Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resorts introduced new policies related to smoking, strollers, stroller wagons and loose ice. These policy changes are intended to provide a more enjoyable experience for everyone who visits Walt Disney World and Disneyland and will go into effect on May 1, 2019.
STROLLERS AT DISNEYLAND AND DISNEY WORLD
Beginning May 1st, Disney is adjusting the guidelines on stroller sizes, which will require them to be no larger than 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long or smaller. The good news – many of the strollers on the market, including many double jogging strollers, fit within these size guidelines. Also, just a reminder that wagons are not permitted in our parks. Beginning May 1st, stroller wagons, including the popular Keenz 7, will also no longer be permitted. These updates are designed to help guest flow and ease congestion throughout the parks.
SMOKING AT DISNEYLAND AND DISNEY WORLD
Also beginning May 1st, smoking areas will no longer be present inside Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or Downtown Disney in California. Designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances to these areas, and at Disney Springs in Florida. For guests who have room or dining reservations, smoking areas are also available at Disney Resort hotels. Please note that this policy also includes vaping.
LOOSE ICE IN THE PARKS
Beginning today, if you plan to bring a cooler or cooler bag to store snacks and drinks for theme park or water park adventures, it’s important to know that loose or dry ice are no longer permitted. Re-useable ice packs are recommended. Complimentary cups of ice are available at Food & Beverage locations inside the parks if needed.
