ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – If you have plans to visit any of the Disney theme parks in the near future, you should know about some big changes to park policies concerning smoking and strollers.

Beginning May 1, 2019 the following changes will go into effect:

  • Smoking will not be allowed inside any Disney park. This includes the Disney theme parks, water parks and the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.

Smoking and vaping are only allowed in these designated areas.
  • Strollers must be 31” wide and 52” long or smaller. Stroller wagons will not be permitted. Strollers are available for rent at Disney parks. The changes were made to improve guest flow at the parks and reduce congestion.
