Disney stamps out smoking, parks over-sized strollers

Smoking, over-sized strollers and loose ice will no longer be permitted at Disney’s theme parks, according to new park rules coming into effect this spring.

As of May 1, smoking areas will no longer be present in Disney’s U.S. theme parks, water parks and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Guests may use designated smoking areas outside of the parks, at Disney Resort hotels and at Disney Springs; the rules also apply to electronic cigarettes and vaping.

In a bid to “ease guest flow and reduce congestion,” Disney will also enforce new stroller size requirements; as of May 1, strollers must be no more than 31” (79cm) wide and 52” (132cm) long or smaller. Stroller wagons will not be permitted, Disney said.

Similarly, loose and dry ice will be prohibited to “improve guest flow, ease congestion and streamline the bag-check and entry processes,” with Disney advising guests to instead use reusable ice packs or to ask for a free cup of ice at the park’s food and beverage stations.
