ORLANDO, Fla. – There are a few rule changes coming to Walt Disney World theme parks.

According to Walt Disney World’s website, effective May 1:

  •  Walt Disney World theme parks, water parks and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will be smoke-free.
  •  Strollers that are greater than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132 cm) in length will be prohibited.
  •  Stroller wagons will also be prohibited.

But the entire resort property isn’t going smoke free.

According to Disney Parks Blog: “Designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances of the areas listed above and at Disney Springs in Florida. For guests who have room or dining reservations, smoking areas are also available at Disney Resort hotels.”

A new rule posted on Disney’s official blog that went into effect Thursday is in regard to loose ice: “If you plan to bring a cooler or cooler bag to store snacks and drinks for theme park or water park adventures, it’s important to know that loose or dry ice are no longer permitted in our parks.”
