With all the exciting new additions coming to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, there are bound to be a few changes. Both domestic Disney Parks are making a few updates to their rules, which include removing smoking areas and banning stroller wagons.
Check out all the new changes below:
Starting May 1, the Disney Parks will adjust their guidelines on stroller sizes, which will require that they be no larger than 31 inches (79cm) wide and 52 inches (132cm) long. Luckily, many strollers on the market, including jogging strollers, fit within these guidelines.
However, the popular stroller wagons are a different story. Even though wagons themselves are not permitted in the parks, starting May 1, stroller wagons will no longer be allowed inside the parks. These updates are to help with guest flow and make congestion in the parks a little easier to handle.
Walt Disney World currently offers stroller rentals, including both single and double strollers. Disneyland will soon offer double strollers for rent as well.
Also starting May 1, smoking areas will no longer be found inside Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, or the Downtown Disney District in California. This also includes vaping, so no vaping will be allowed in the parks, either.
Designated smoking areas will instead be located outside the entrances to the areas listed above, and at Disney Springs in Florida. For guests who have room or dining reservations, smoking areas will also be available at Disney Resort hotels.
Starting today, if you’re bringing a cooler or cooler bag to carry snacks and drinks to the theme parks or water parks, loose or dry ice will no longer be permitted in the parks.
A way to keep your items cool is to use re-usable ice packs instead, or visit any Quick-Service location for complimentary cups of ice for your cooler.
