Disney has announced several new policies that you will want to know for your next trip to a Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort park.
While we’ve already discussed the new Smoking Policy, we’ll take another quick look at it here. But we’ll begin by discussing new limitations on Strollers (including a new Policy banning Stroller Wagons). We’ll also look at new rules surrounding the bringing of loose and dry ice in the parks, as well as when each policy goes into effect.
Stroller Size and Stroller Wagons
Beginning May 1, Disney is adjusting the guidelines on stroller sizes. It will be required that strollers be no larger than 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long. In Walt Disney World, guests can already rent a single or double stroller upon arrival, and Disneyland Resort will soon offer a double stroller for rental in addition to the single strollers.
Note that wagons are not allowed in the parks, and also starting May 1, stroller wagons will not be permitted.
As we shared previously, effective May 1st, smoking areas will no longer be present in Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort theme parks. This policy will also apply to water parks, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and the Downtown Disney District in California.
Designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances of the aforementioned areas and at Disney Springs in Florida. Guests who have room or dining reservations at a Disney Resort will also have access to smoking areas at the hotels.
Note that, according to the Walt Disney World website, vaping will also be limited to the designated smoking areas.
Loose and Dry Ice
Effective immediately (our publishing date is March 28, 2019) loose and dry ice are no longer permitted in the parks.
If you bring a cooler or cooler bag with you, reusable ice packs are recommended instead.
