Smoking: Beginning May 1, 2019, there will no longer be smoking areas inside of Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or Downtown Disney in California. They will have designated smoking areas outside the main entrances of the theme parks and other areas effected. Disney Springs will also have designated smoking areas out side the shopping and eating areas. Hotels are also effected by this with their own smoking areas.
We see strollers ALL OVER the Disney Parks, but some of the larger ones are starting to become a problem for crow flow and management. Starting May 1, 2019, the guidelines for stroller sizes are changing and strollers can’t be any bigger than 31 inches wide and 52 inches long. Many strollers sold today, even the double jogging strollers, fit within these guidelines.
Wagons are not permitted in the parks, but as of May 1, 2019, stroller wagons will also no longer be allowed. Disney Parks Blog says this will help ease congestion to make the parks more enjoyable for everyone.
Beginning March 28, 2019, if you bring a cooler to store snacks and drinks for your day at the parks, loose or dry ice are no longer permitted. Disney Parks Blog suggests keeping your snacks and drinks cool with re-useable ice packs instead. You can also visit any Quick-Service location for complimentary cups ice for your cooler. Even better, you can always request complimentary cups of ice water to stay hydrated while moving through the parks.
