Disney Makes Policy Changes Regarding Strollers, Smoking and Ice at Walt Disney World and Disneyland

Disney just rolled out some new policy changes coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, effective May 1st.

Make sure to check out their rules in order, which will help you with your planning. You can find the rules on DisneyWorld.com/Rules and Disneyland.com/Rules.

Thanks to Disney Parks Blog, here’s a few of the new changes coming that you should be aware of!

STROLLERS
Families with little ones know strollers are an important part of a vacation. It’s the napping zone, the storage place, and the spot for tired legs to rest while experiencing the magic.

Beginning May 1, we are adjusting our guidelines on stroller sizes, which will require them to be no larger than 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long. The good news – many 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 parksBeginning 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.

SMOKING
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.

LOOSE ICE 
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 in our parks.
