A Humorous Look At Disney Parks’ New Rules On Smoking, Ice and Strollers

You may have read in the past day or two that the Walt Disney Company released some new rules that will be going into effect in regards to where smoking will be allowed, bringing ice into the parks to keep items cold, and limits on the size and style of strollers (although they don’t specify anything by name in the post, Keenz stroller wagons will no longer be allowed) that can be brought into the parks at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

The full list of new rules can be found if you click here to get to Disney’s website.

Why do I remember this crap???) flights allowed smoking, but by my NEXT flight (again WDW, Sept. 1992…Delta, because THAT was then The Official Airline Blah Blah Blah) and all those thereafter definitely did not. And yet, even today, almost 20 years since the last cigarette was allowed to be smoked on ANY plane (domestic, international, anywhere in the world; doesn’t matter), you can still find ashtrays in every single one of them.


Welp, I found out 😉
