Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. introduced new policies related to smoking, strollers, stroller wagons and loose ice. These updates are intended to provide a more enjoyable experience for everyone who visits Disney World and Disneyland. The stroller changes will help guest flow and reducing congestion. The new smoking, stroller and stroller wagon policies go into effect on May 1
Here are a few tips to help ensure a smooth arrival during next visit to Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
STROLLERS AT DISNEYLAND AND DISNEY WORLD
Beginning May 1, 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 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 you arrive, and can be rented each day. Or, you 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.
SMOKING AT DISNEYLAND AND DISNEY WORLD
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.
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.
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.
Be sure to take a moment to look at the latest rules for each destination, which are available at DisneyWorld.com/Rules and Disneyland.com/Rules.
