You'd think the happiest place on earth would imply that there are no rules, but this theme park is putting its magical foot down and setting some restrictions that might upset some of its fans.
Although strollers are the easiest way for parents to move their little ones around, it can cause some serious congestion and traffic at the park. Have you ever waited for the Disney parade at the end of the day and had to compete with a million strollers and fear that your ankle might get ran over? It's easy to see the love-hate relationship that people have for strollers.
Disneyland and Disney World have updated their stroller policies, making some parents pretty upset while others are rejoicing at the news. Hopefully, this doesn't affect too many people's attendance, but I think a lot of crushed toes will be avoided and there won't be any irritated heels from the road rage of an angry Disney mom.
It's hard not to love this place.It's a theme park unlike any other theme park, and it truly is the happiest place on earth.
But there are two types of people in this world.Some people could care less about Disneyland and some people have an absolute meltdown at the thought of stepping foot in the Magical Kingdom.
Thank god we have this GIF.This little girl's reaction to her Disneyland trip gave us one of the greatest GIFs of all time. It's just way too relatable.
But we all know what we're getting ourselves into.Kids running around screaming, incredibly long lines, overpriced but almost totally worth it food. It's just what comes along with all the magic.
But some things are going to change at the park.
Some stroller adjustments.

There are some restrictions.Strollers will still be allowed, but it's the size that the theme park is really cracking down on.
Say goodbye to those stroller wagons.
Did you hear about Disney's new stroller restrictions? No wagons or larger strollers! What do you think about this?… https://t.co/VRB2xaduOa— Jennifer Ketchmark (@Jennifer Ketchmark)1553860355.0

Get out your measuring tape.
It's all about guest flow.website.
Disney is recommending using their strollers.Renting a Disney stroller is potentially your best option, but that also is upsetting to some parents. The rental rates aren't terrible, but it just adds to your already extensive and expensive list of Disney purchases. Basically, it's $15 to rent a single stroller for the day and $30 to rent a double.
And they aren't the most comfortable strollers ever.
Hey, @DisneyParks I can agree with the new stroller guidelines.. but my 2 year old brother bang his head pretty bad… https://t.co/fKIfpXU9gt— Ferii Celis (@Ferii Celis)1553795525.0
The new rules will be applied soon.
Same with the no-smoking rules.
BANNED! Beginning May 1, designated smoking areas will no longer be found inside Disney parks. 🚭🚭🚭🚭🚭 https://t.co/3zxxdiS8R6— KDKA (@KDKA)1553793300.0
This goes for vapes, too."Smoking and vaping are only permitted in designated smoking areas," Disney announced. Save your E-cigarettes and Juuls for your frat parties because Mickey and all his friends won't allow you in with them.
I mean, there are a lot of strollers at Disneyland.
I was attacked by a sea of strollers this week in Disney and now they are restricting the stroller size. Oh, okay. https://t.co/4TU4GZHQu6— R. Phillips (@R. Phillips)1553864513.0

Disney going smoke free and banning stroller wagons is just proving that 2019 really is that bitch— Kasey but spooky 🎃 (@Kasey but spooky 🎃)1553780986.0
Thank you, next!
Bye smoke, bye giant strollers!!! I’ve never been so excited about the Disney rules!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 https://t.co/deuBNMeYSC— Patrick Dougall (@Patrick Dougall)1553786358.0
Lots of heart eyes.Apparently, the news is making some people's dreams come true.
Other people are shook.Considering this is a great place for kids, some were shocked by the new restrictions and concerned for families with little children.
I hear this loud and clear.This is most likely going to make life quite difficult for some parents, especially those with twins who are used to having larger strollers to accommodate their children.
Oh, and no more dry ice.I have no idea who was bringing in dry ice to Disneyland, but this rule is for you! No more dry ice or loose ice in your ice chests.
Petition for a few new rules?
Disney is adding more rules in addition to the no smoking and no big strollers.... https://t.co/xeK0CBa5f8— Papa Woof und Krampus und Bleaken (@Papa Woof und Krampus und Bleaken)1553911999.0
Will other parks follow in their footsteps?
With Disney Parks banning smoking and oversized strollers; would you want Universal Parks to follow suit and do the same?— Inside Universal (@Inside Universal)1553799005.0
