Disney Parks Limiting the Size of Strollers, Among New Rules

The Walt Disney company has announced on its website some rule changes for its theme parks in Florida and California. All of the rule changes go into effect on May 1st, 2019. The rules affect the size and types of strollers allowed in the parks, where guests can smoke, and what can be used to pack cold foods and drinks.

Smaller Strollers

Strollers will not be allowed if they are wider than 31 inches (79 cm) wide or 52 inches (132 cm) long. Disney ensures that many strollers, even double-wide jogging strollers, will be able to meet these guidelines. Also, wagon strollers that are pulled, will no longer be allowed in the parks. Disney also mentions that strollers are available to rent at all the parks, if yours doesn’t meet the guidlines. These rules are intended to reduce congestion and improve the flow of traffic.

No Smoking Allowed

Also beginning May 1st, smoking will no longer be allowed at the parks. This rule also extends to vaping. Currently, there are a few designating smoking areas in the parks where smoking is allowed. After the rule change, the only areas designated for smoking will be found outside the park entry point and in certain areas at the Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs.

Forget the Ice

And the last new rule change will ban visitors from bringing their own wet or dry ice into the parks. Guests will still be allowed to bring reusable ice packs and will be available for free throughout the parks. Disney says is also to improve guest flow and help speed up the bag check through security.

All these rule changes will go into effect just about a month before the new land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opens at Disneyland. The new land will undoubtedly brings large amounts of people into the park, forcing Disney to really improve crowd flow.
