Disney Parks Removing Theme Park Smoking Areas and Limiting Stroller Sizes

New Theme Park Changes

If you are headed to the Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resorts later this year, you’ll want to take note of some new policies and procedures!

Smoking – Effective May 1, 2019

Smoking areas will no longer be present inside any of the Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sport Complex or Downtown Disney in California. You can find designated smoking sections outside each park entrance and also at Disney Springs in Florida. Smoking areas will also be designated at all Disney Resorts.

Strollers – Effective May 1, 2019

Strollers can no be no larger than 31” (79 cm) wide and 52” (132 cm) long. Most strollers, including jogging strollers, fit within these size restrictions.

Stroller Wagons – Effective May 1, 2019

Stroller wagons will no longer be permitted. If you don’t have a stroller at home, you can rent one on-site at the entrance of each theme park.

Loose Ice – Effective Today!

Guests can no longer have loose or dry ice in their coolers and cooler bags. Re-usable ice packs are allowed. You can also ask for complimentary cups of ice or water at Quick Service locations throughout the park.

Disney is making these changes in preparation for a BIG year at the parks. They want all guests to remain safe and healthy while enjoying their vacation. Make sure to stay up to date on any future news and changes by following our site!

  1. Responsible commenting is a must as well. Call the Park. Your entitled ass will be stuck behind the turnstile as of May 1st.

  2. Your graphic of a stroller wagon is misleading as the pictured item is obviously meant to imply that Keenz stroller wagon is no longer permitted which is 100% incorrect. Because it is pushed instead of pulled and fits far within the width/length guidelines, the Keenz wagon is the only wagon permitted in Disney Parks.
    In fact, the pictured graphic of posted backstage to show cast members specifically that it IS permitted.

    Responsible reporting should know better. The policy specifically states that PULLED wagons are not permitted, meaning items like radio flyer red wagons. The Keenz stroller wagon is pushed and thereby not restricted under this policy.
