Know Before You Go- New Policies Now Implemented At Disney Parks As They Go SMOKE FREE Plus New Stroller Policies
Know Before You Go! All Disney Parks are now smoke-free beginning May 1 along with changes to what strollers sizes will be allowed and no more loose or dry ice will be allowed!
With so many exciting new offerings coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in 2019 and beyond, there is so much to look forward and with these great new additions such as the much anticipated Galaxy’s Edge, the Parks, they are a changing. Starting May 1, guests visiting the Disney Parks will see these changes implemented including the removal of smoking areas within parks and the adjustment of park policies related to stroller size, wagons, and loose ice.
Here are a few tips to help ensure a smooth arrival during your next visit.
Also beginning May 1, 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.
TIP: Designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances to the areas listed above, and at Disney Springs in Florida. For guests who have room or dining reservations, smoking areas are also available at Disney Resort hotels.
Beginning May 1, we are adjusting our 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 1, stroller wagons will also no longer be permitted. These updates are designed to help guest flow and ease congestion, making the parks more enjoyable for everyone.
TIP: The smaller your stroller, the easier it is to navigate and maneuver the parks. At Walt Disney World Resort, you can rent a single or double stroller once they arrive, and they can be rented each day. Or, they can choose a Length of Stay Rental, which will save you time and money. While Walt Disney World already offers a double stroller rental, Disneyland Resort will soon offer one too.
Beginning today, if your clients 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.
TIP: We recommend you use re-useable ice packs instead. Complimentary cups of ice are available at Food & Beverage locations inside the parks if needed.
As with anything, we know that Disney Parks are committed to giving every guest the best possible experience when visiting the Disney Parks? What say you?
