Disney Has Banned Smoking In Its Theme And Water Parks
Smokers be warned: Disney has officially banned smoking inside its theme and water parks.
The ban, which will take effect from 1st May, was announced in a Disney Parks blog post.
The post read: "Beginning May 1, smoking areas will no longer be present inside Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or Downtown Disney District in California.
"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."
It's not just smoking that has been banned at the happiest place on earth - there are now rules about which pram sizes you can bring into the parks, and there's also been a ban on loose or dry ice.
Dennis Speigel, president of International Theme Park Services and expert on the theme park industry, told the Orlando Sentinel: "It's about time. It's the happiest place on Earth. Why should people be subjected to smoke at Disney?"
Strict bans aside, Disney fans have been treated to plenty of exciting news recently.
