Starting this Wednesday, May 1, smoking areas at Disney parks in California and Florida will be eliminated and new stroller regulations will go into effect.

Smoking also won’t be allowed at Disney water parks, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, or Downtown Disney in California. However, smoking areas will be available outside the parks and those entertainment areas. Disney Springs in Florida and the company’s hotels will have smoking areas.

Disney is also limiting stroller sizes to 31 inches wide and 52 inches long, and stroller wagons will no longer be allowed.

Disney says the new stroller regulations were put in place to help ease congestion.

In March, Disney also banned loose and dry ice.

Disney visitors are encouraged to review the park rules online at and before visiting.
