In what can only be my favorite thing that Disney has ever done, they have completely banned smoking from all their parks. But Disney also went ahead and banned big strollers and ice, too.
If you’ve ever walked past the smoking area in one of the Disney parks you are beyond happy about this. It just doesn’t make sense for people to be smoking next to Cinderella’s castle, and I’m super happy about this.
Vapes, too. Which makes this mama happy. Just because your nicotine smells like cotton candy doesn’t mean I want to inhale it.
What is blowing my mind is the banning of all ice. They did say that ice packs are still allowed, and that you can get a cup of ice for free at any restaurant you need one at, but ice? Disney, why are you banning ice?
We’re people heckling the parade participants by throwing ice at them? Was the crunching ruining the ambiance on the small world ride?
Tell me, Disney— what do you have against frozen water?
Is this an Elsa thing?
And strollers are gone at Disney now, too. They said two kid jogging strollers will still be allowed, but they’re talking about those deluxe rider models that hold 14 kids and might as well be a smart car.
I have zero problem with this.
If you really need a stroller within size, they do have them for rent at the park entrances, but it will be nice to not have to worry about getting off the walkway because somebody has a stroller that takes up both sides of the street. (How do you even drive that thing anyway?)
So, keep your ice at home. And your giant strollers, and your vape. In other words, just like… go to Disney and don’t bring a bunch of crap.
Actually, your life will be easier if you do it that way anyway. You can read more about Disney’s new park rules here.
