2019 Disney World Policy Changes
Disney announced that starting May 1, smoking and certain large strollers will no longer be allowed inside Florida and California Disney parks, including Walt Disney World, Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Downtown Disney, but here is just a few of the new policys for 2019 along with the stroler size regulations.
2019 Disney Smoking Policy:
Guests who smoke will still be able to light up in designated areas outside park entry points and in smoking areas at Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.
Beginning March 28 2019, loose or dry ice is no longer permitted in the Walt Disney World theme parks. As an alternative, Disney suggests using re-useable ice packs. Complimentary cups of ice are also available at Food & Beverage locations inside the parks if needed.
Beginning May 1 2019, Walt Disney World will begin enforcing stroller size restrictions to keep them within a reasonable size for navigating through the parks.
New regulations will require them to be no larger than 31" (79cm) wide and 52" (132cm) long.
Popular strollers, such as the Bob Revolution (including the Duallie double wide version) fit within these size guidelines.
Wagons are already banned, but beginning May 1, stroller wagons (such as the Keenz) will also no longer be permitted.
ABC Commissary to begin accepting reservations for dinner:
Starting this summer, the ABC Commissary at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be changing its Fast Casual dinner experience to accept reservations. Each night starting at 4pm, guests with reservations will be able to place an order, take a pager and find a seat. Then, when the order is ready, the food will be brought to your table as before. Walk-ups will still be available, although wait times may be longer. Mobile Order will no longer be available for dinner, for guests with or without reservations. Lunch service is unaffected and remains walk-up only as a counter-service offering.
Reservations are available now for dinner beginning Sunday June 2 2019.
The quick service restaurant moved to the fast-casual model with food delivery to the table back in November 2016, but was available as a walk-up option only.
