Smoking Ban, New Stroller Policy Begins Wednesday May 1st at Walt Disney World

As we previously reported, there were some big changes coming to Walt Disney World, and the time is already here.

In March, Disney announced that starting May 1st, smoking inside all of their theme parks will be banned. Smoking areas will no longer exist inside the parks. This applies to not just Walt Disney World in Orlando, but also the Disneyland theme parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Downtown Disney in California, and all Disney water parks. This policy is basically for all Disney properties across the board.

There will still be two designated smoking areas outside the entrances of the parks and at Disney Springs in Orlando. Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels will also have designated smoking areas to use. So the accommodations are still there for smokers, but in new locations.

The smoking ban is not the only new policy coming to Walt Disney World on May 1st. Any strollers over 31-inches will also not be allowed. The current limit is 36-inches. Over-sized strollers and wagons will not be permitted in the parks. Again, this policy takes effect on Wednesday, so plan accordingly! Stay tuned to The Main Street Mouse for all your Disney Park news and information!
