Walt Disney World Bans Selfie Sticks From Parks

Walt Disney World confirmed this morning that they are completely banning selfie sticks from its parks, effective Tuesday, June 30.

Previously Disney had banned selfie sticks from certain rides, but under the new policy, the sticks won’t be allowed in the parks at all. They will also be banned from the Walt Disney World water parks, and at DisneyQuest at Downtown Disney.

The park will be keeping an eye out for the selfie sticks during bag checks prior to entering, and if a guest is found with one, they have the option of turning in their sticks at guest services to pick up later, or returning them to their car or hotel room.

The ban also goes into effect on Tuesday at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in California, where this weekend the California Screamin’ roller coaster was shut down for over an hour after a guest used a selfie stick while the ride was in motion.

Disney’s parks in Hong Kong and Paris will enact the ban on July 1.
