    Hi, we have just found out that Disney are going to have a non smoking policy, and that there will be a place to smoke at the entrance to the parks. Does this mean that you have to go in and out passed security every time?

    Hey, Mary and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Just a few more months and you will travel across the pond to the place "where dreams come true." Your August trip will be filled with magic, mystery, and maybe an adventure to the planet Batuu on the Outer Rim of Wild Space at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    You are correct. On May 1, 2019, a new smoking policy will be in effect and all smoking and vaping will need to be in designated areas outside the theme parks. Should the smoking/vaping area be beyond the security area you will need to pass through it again. On this Designated Smoking Area Map, you will still see areas inside the theme park but that will change, so look for the areas before the entrances. If you need help use a paper Guide Map or ask a Cast Member.

    Disney Dad Tip: The My Disney Experience mobile app is the best planning tool that allows you to make FastPass+ selections and dining reservations, view turn-by-turn directions between destinations at Walt Disney World Resort, review and purchase Disney PhotoPass photos, and use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. To see the smoking areas, open the app and tap on the map at the top of the main screen. Filter on the upper right to the theme park of your choice and then stretch the map out to find the smoking signs. Tap on the smoking sign to get step-by-step directions from any location.

    Mary, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
