Disney Parks Updates Park Rules and Prohibited Items List

The Disney Parks have updated their online posting of  park rules and prohibited items listing. This update seems to be designed to clarify and address some topics (like smoking restrictions, dress code, service animals, and items allowed in the park) but makes other approved item’s definition even more vague (like acceptable tripod size). Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland have updated their websites and will be updating posted park signage. These new rules went into effect today (9/24/14) with no prior notice that changes were coming.

Interestingly the majority of these rules (except prohibited items) were removed from Walt Disney World’s website when the parks started their My Disney Experience site upgrade and did not return until today.  Also noticeable is the DOWNGRADE of rule clarification from the old Disneyland rules and that the newly posted version is nowuniversal for both parks.

Here are PDFs of the original  park rules still available in select parts of the Disney Parks website:

Permitted Items _ FAQ _ Disneyland Resort-old


Old Dress Code WDW
Restricted Personal Items _ Walt Disney World Resort-old

Here are PDFs of the NEW park rules available on each parks site:

Park Rules and Regulations _ Disneyland Resort


Park Rules and Regulations _ Walt Disney World Resort

What do you think about these changes? Do you find it nice that the same rules will apply in both U.S. parks, or do you find some of the changes actually make it more difficult to understand what is and isn’t allowed in the parks?
