Ahead of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” Area Openings, Disneyland & WDW to Restrict Smoking, Big Strollers

Pretty soon there will be only two months left before Disneyland Park can take its guests to a Galaxy Far, Far Away. The promise of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is so overwhelming to Disney theme park-goers that they’ll certainly crowd Disneyland on the Opening Day for Galaxy’s Edge, May 31.

That’s probably why, according to CNN, California’s Disneyland as well as Florida’s Walt Disney World will be issuing a ban on smoking and large strollers within theme park premises. This prohibition also extends to WDW’s waterparks or Anaheim’s Downtown Disney.

A Disney spokesperson notes that with the expansion of their resort offerings – Galaxy’s Edge for one – they must take measures to make the guest experience universally enjoyable. Banning smoking will cut down on pollution while keeping strollers under mandated sizes would reduce guest foot traffic.

Of course, smokers will still be given some consideration, as they’re still free to light up in Florida’s Disney Springs. Designated smoking areas within Disney resort hotels will remain, and similar areas will be set up near theme park entryways. And strollers to be allowed in the theme parks must now no longer exceed 39 inches/79 cm in width, and 52 inches/132 cm in length.

These are but the latest new changes that Disney is implementing in both Disneyland and Disney World with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming. Way back in January they have already introduced a wide variation of ticket price hikes for guests.
