Walt Disney World Bans Use of Selfie Sticks on Attractions

Selfie Stick Ban at Walt Disney World

It was only a matter of time before Disney Parks banned the use selfie sticks on rides and attractions throughout parks.

For those not familiar, a selfie stick is a telescopic stick that you attach your phone or camera to giving you some distance between yourself and your camera giving you a wider shot.

Though these are great for pictures around the park, using them on rides may pose an issue.

First and foremost, Disney has always been concerned with guest safety. These telescopic sticks may lead to incidents on rides with low clearance or may lead to you losing your device and potentially causing injury to yourself and others.

Another common complaint is that it can be obstructive to other guests who are trying to enjoy the attractions as well.

This policy is exclusive to Walt Disney World at this time but one can only guess that this policy will reach to the California parks as well.
