Walt Disney World and Disneyland extend ban on selfie sticks park-wide

Walt Disney World has officially decided to ban selfie sticks in their parks, due to safety concerns. Guests attach their phone or camera to the end of a telescoping pole in order to extend their reach to take photos. Park guests have complained of being hit by these or having their view obstructed by someone else’s camera.

In April, the sticks were banned from attractions and in May, signs were posted at certain attractions stating this. The new policy is effective June 30 and includes the four theme parks, the two water parks and DisneyQuest at Downtown Disney.

The sticks will be confiscated during bag check at the park gate; guests can leave them and pick them up on their way out or return them to their cars or hotel rooms. The policy will be posted on the website and guests will be informed of the rules in several places before they reach the parks, such as the resorts and the parking lots.

Spokeswoman Kim Prunty said, “We strive to provide a great experience for the entire family, and unfortunately selfie-sticks have become a growing safety concern for both our guests and cast. ماكينات القمار على الانترنت

On June 25, the California Screamin’ roller coaster at Disney’s California Adventure came to a stop at the top of the ride when one of the riders pulled out a selfie-stick. The sticks were previously banned on attractions at Disneyland as well and cast members were instructed to stop rides if they saw a guest using one of the devices. قواعد لعبة بوكر
