Disney bans smoking, large strollers from US parks

US and World

(CNN/WIAT) — Getting ready for that summer vacation to Disney?

Whether you travel to Florida or California, you better plan ahead if you’re a smoker or a stroller user.

The full-park smoking ban went into effect May 1, 2019. Smoking and certain large strollers will no longer be allowed inside Florida and California Disney parks, including Walt Disney World, Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Downtown Disney.

There are still designated smoking areas outside of the park though. 

The size limit for strollers inside its park is limited to 31 inches wide and 52 inches long. The idea is to reduce congestion and improve crowd flow.

If you prefer, Disney will rent you a stroller for $15 for the day or $13 daily for a multiday stay. Walt Disney World in Orlando offers a double stroller rental, and Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will soon offer one, too.

One last new rule: If you’re bringing a cooler to the parks, loose or dry ice isn’t allowed anymore. Use reusable ice packs or visit a park’s Quick-Service location for free cups of ice.
