Planning a trip to Disney?
Starting May 1st, 2019, oversized strollers and stroller wagons will no longer be allowed in any Disney theme park. While Disney World already rents double strollers, rumor has it that Disneyland will soon have them available, too.
Strollers that are greater than 31″ in width (currently the limitation is 36″ wide) and 52″ (132cm) in length will be prohibited. Stroller wagons will also be prohibited.
Disney officials hope that these new restrictions will help clear the often-crowded pathways inside the parks, which were not designed to accommodate extra-wide strollers, making the parks more enjoyable for everyone.
Another change is that smoking will be prohibited effective May 1st, 2019.
While Disney is already a mostly smoke-free environment, there have been designated smoking areas in Disney World and Disneyland available. The elimination of these last remaining designated smoking areas should help free up space within the parks, too.
The Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks, and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will be smoke free. The Disneyland Theme Parks, Esplanade, and the Downtown Disney District will be smoke free.
Also, if you’re used to bringing your own ice into the park, you’ll no longer be able to do that. Effective today, March 28th, 2019, Disney is no longer allowing customers to bring loose ice or dry ice into the park in coolers, suitcases, backpacks, bags, or other containers. Reusable ice packs are recommended.
