Smoking bans have been put in place all over the world to limit exposure to second-hand smoke for non-smokers and children alike. While you can usually smoke while outdoors in designated areas, Disney has made the decision to ban smoking in their U.S. theme parks altogether and people are livid.
In a post made by CBS news today on Facebook, many people took to the comments section to voice their outrage. Both smokers and non-smoker's aren't all that happy about the change, saying that it is discriminatory and wrong to not allow a guest to smoke - especially since they are generally outdoors at Disney. Some people are even saying they don't want to go or support Disney any further due to the changes.
You can see a few comments regarding the upset below:
Of course for every angry person though there is someone who strongly supports this change - arguing that non-smokers and children who don't want to be around smoke shouldn't have to be. They're also happy to hear that they'll get through the lines for their favorite rides much more quickly too. Some smokers are even okay with the change.
The smoking ban extends to all of Disney's U.S. parks and includes those who smoke vapes or e-cigarettes too, so no one will be blowing clouds in the happiest place on earth. Although you won't be able to smoke within the park, Disney does still plan to allow smoking outside of the park's entrance in designated areas.
Whether you support the change or not, Disney made the decision and is moving forward - saying that they want to provide a more enjoyable experience for everyone and reduce congestion - according to a comment they provided to CBS.
