That ship has sailed. So, if you are a smoker, or someone who used oversized strollers or wagons, please discuss it here. If you are a guest who who has experienced the changes, please discuss it here.

Yes, good tip. My son would hate that because of the echoing of enclosed spaces.

Noise is an issue for us too - not necessarily all noise, just noises of a certain quality - so we avoid shows that are indoors or under a roof.

Thank you. This really helps. About the noise, I didn't think about bringing his noise-cancelling headphones, but I will. And I LOVE the pool idea.

i agree although the health risks are very real the level of damage simply smelling cigarette smoke should have ended humanity 40 years ago if you go by the this board.

I thought they might be a little lenient the first day - they were passing out info sheets everywhere we went, and popping up reminder messages on our phones. More to the point, I overheard a CM talking with a woman who was concerned about her own stroller (not with her that day) and he said, β€œIf you see it in the park today, it’s good” - implying, to me, that they were going to be very strict the first day. πŸ‘πŸ»

Disney ran into a huge issue when they demolished the smoking area between Tomorrowland and the Circus. They pushed the smokers out next to the bathrooms in Tomorrowland and, if you believe reports on this board, every single person is 100% allergic to smoke and are forced to walk into that area with people blowing smoke into their face.

uhhhh yeah thats a cash cow for disney. maybe i bring my rum in my coffee cup so that i can deal with you and your family. ;)

lol the goal was never to avoid them....you guys act like they care about your health and or exposure? its a good PR move makes them look holy and such. you want them to spend money on something they wish didn't have to exsist? for a park that gets so many euro guests removing sections period would have been a big bite to chew.

Ouch. Carful throwing are that 'S' word. It is 2019, and we don't stand for that anymore.

From reading through several of these threads I can tell you that most non smokers are alcoholics who already won their battle. They somehow convinced the world that they need booze in the Magic Kingdom or daddy wont go; momma is a mess without her wine, you know... Would love to see Disney remove alchol from the parks just so I can read the reactions here from the boozies.

I am surprised they haven't made a smoking area outside of the international gateway. That one heck of a hike from the UK pavillion ...

I'm not a smoker and nobody in my family is...and I actually feel bad for smokers now. It's not like they can say, "Ok, I'm on vacation and it's not allowed, I just won't smoke today." It's a habit...an addiction...and it can really mess people up if they just cold-turkey it. The locations weren't bad at all and I can't ever remember an "in-park" smoking area that ever bothered me or was in my face. The MK one is pretty far away from some areas of the park...heck, it's pretty far away if you're at the hub.
