7 Things We’re Begging You to Stop Bringing to Disney World

If you’re like us, you’re already counting down the day until your feet hit Main Street, U.S.A. in Disney World once again.

Magic Kingdom

We know we talk a lot about what to bring to the parks. We have told you about what we have to take with us to the parks. We’ve shared the items you definitely need to pack in your carry-on if you are flying to Disney. Now, we’re begging you to NOT bring these things to Disney World.

Selfie Sticks and Tripods

If you still have a selfie stick lying around and you think the perfect time to bust it out is for Disney World, think again. Selfie sticks are prohibited in Disney World. When you go through security, they could be taken. Tripods that are over 6′ also cannot be used in the parks.

PhotoPass Cast Members in the Magic Kingdom

Make sure to leave yours at home. Instead, ask a PhotoPass Cast Member to snap your photo.

Vape Sticks

Vaping is not allowed except in designated smoking areas on Disney property. However, we’ve seen a handful of guests who vape while walking around the parks and even in line for attractions.

Pirates of the Caribbean

If you are going to vape, please check your My Disney Experience for the smoking locations throughout Disney property.

Large Stollers and Stroller Wagons

Did you know there are certain strollers that you cannot bring to Disney World? According to Disney, Strollers that are greater than 31″ (79 cm) in width and 52″ (132 cm) in length are prohibited. Stroller Wagons are also prohibited. Double-check before you leave for vacation that your stroller will be accepted.

You don’t want to have to find that out at the gates.

Snacks that Melt in Your Bag

Alright, we understand snacks at Disney can get pricey, so maybe you want to bring in a little snack with you. However, what you might not be thinking about is the heat and humidity that can get to your snack and cause it to melt all over your bag.

Snacks like chocolate, gummy candy, and more can leave you with a big mess to clean up.


If you have forgotten what it was like to visit Disney World in 2020, let’s just say we might not want to go back to that. If you aren’t feeling well, you should probably stay home. There are so many people at Disney World, and it can be easy to pick something up here after touching everything.

Remember these?

Plus, if you are sick, walking around in the heat will not help you feel better.

Bad Attitudes

Look, you don’t want to be a Disney villain, there are already plenty of those at Disney World. So leave those bad attitudes at home. No one wants to hear you complain about the weather (we all know it is hot), the prices (we know it’s expensive), and the crowds (yes, it is probably crowded and you’ll have to wait 45 minutes for it’s a small world).

Evil Step Sisters

So pack your patience, get a sugar rush with those Disney snacks, and enjoy the vacation you have before it’s over.

Bad Manners

In line with bad attitudes, don’t come with bad manners. Clean up after yourself, be aware of those around you, and be kind — especially to cast members. They are the magic and do so much for guests so give them a smile. A “thank you” goes a long way. If you run into something unpleasant, like Genie+ isn’t working, be patient and kind to the Cast Members who are helping you.

We love Cast Members!

Alright, now if we could just convince everyone to be on the same page as us, we would be set — it’s okay to laugh, it’s a joke. For more Disney tips and tricks, make sure you’re following us at AllEars.

  1. While anecdotal I visit 5-6 times a year and see more than a handful of people vaping outside of the dedicated areas. They think no one can see and are fairly discreet when they exhale, plus the vapor is way less noticeable than that of a cigarette. I do not care who smokes, but I dislike the sense of entitlement that they can do it wherever they want with the rules not applying to them.

    1. I wish people would not use their strollers to push their way through crowds by ramming them into people’s legs. One woman was headed for me one time and I said told not to hit me please. She ignored me and kept coming. So I had to put my foot against to front rail of the monstrosity and actually push away from me. She began to yell at me about how I could have hurt her child. Really? Talk about entitled.

    2. It’s so easy to get Nicorette lozenges or gum. I do everytime I go somewhere that doesn’t allow smoking. Includes shopping malls too. With nicorette, you can still feel that nicotine rush and it’s way cheaper than cigarettes. I’ve actually quit smoking with the lozenges, but like an idiot I would start smoking again, usually because I meet up with an old friend that smokes. Now we are puffing together. No one wants to be the only one smoking. But maybe being alienated is the solution. People do get lonely and if they say they don’t they are lying. Everyone gets lonely!!!! Ive been alone most of my life and I was an only child and I always was number one with my parents. But as I aged I became able to talk to people without getting so nervous and queasy. Hey I’m scared I admit it. I hate being judged and when we meet new people they are definitely judging us even if they don’t realize it themselves….
