    Can you bring a homemade "magic wand" into Disney parks

    Greetings Amy, it's great to have you here at planDisney!

    On behalf of spellcasters, witches, wizards and makers of magic everywhere I'm pleased to wish you the most enchanting welcome, to a place where you can seek our knowledge and advice. Bringing anything that you've crafted from home can be a great way to bring your own bit of magic to any theme park visit, especially with all of the photo opportunities abound wherever you go! (I know that I've personally brought along a wand to wave around on my theme park adventures, which was certainly nowhere nearly as large as the lightsabers that I see carried around everywhere.)

    Now there's currently no rule that specifically applies to magic wands specifically as far as Prohibited Items within the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, but it's also important to remember that these policies are subject to change without prior notice and may be at the discretion of the security Cast Members and their leadership if they really want to take an extra look at any items being brought in to ensure that they are safe. I have however, observed guests carrying around all kinds of wands that they've either purchased beforehand themselves, or even carefully crafted - like the beautiful creations over at Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers in Disney Springs. Without really knowing what your magic wand looks like or the materials used, there's no way to definitely say for sure what may or may not be permitted without showing it in person to the Cast Members at Guest Relations, but according to the one I spoke with, it should be acceptable in the majority of cases.

    Where you'll need to be very careful is when you're experiencing attractions, especially rides that involve thrilling movement where you wouldn't something like a wand loose for everyone's safety. Even those wielding special wishing wands from Cinderella's Royal Table should be careful of pointy parts! Speaking of magic wands, you might want to stop by EPCOT to Meet Asha near World Showcase Plaza; I recently bestowed a wand upon her from my journeys on the sea and she might have a few magical pointers or things to say about yours! I hope that this was helpful, Amy - be sure to come back to planDisney again for any other tips or tricks ahead of your next Disney adventures!

    Here's hoping your next visit will be extra magical!
