    Fantasia Gardens smoking area?

    The smoking area on the old Motorboat Cruise dock has been moved to the east side of the Matterhorn, just beside Autopia along the submarine lagoon. Anyone heard why, and is this (hopefully) just temporary? The new spot is a little small and too close to busy walkways where guests probably don't want to deal with second-hand smoke.
    The awning over the dock looks tattered and worn, perhaps they're going to refurb it?

    Actually, the old location was to the left of where it is currently. They might have moved it back because of Edelweiss Snacks being so close to the dock.

    maybe true
    Disney always had a eat and Drink cart there.
    Next year I'm hear there will be a new law that Outdoor eating will become NON- smoking area.

    The whole park should be non-smoking. Smoke knows nothing of areas. If other people can smell it, they're at risk.

    Re: Fantasia Gardens smoking area?

    I am sure Disney would love to make it a smoke free park, but until a law goes into affect for such things, they won't do it as it would cause many people to not want to visit the parks. Those smokers would get angry and possibly not go in. And if they did you may have crowds of guests outside the gates all smoking away taking up a big area either in the esplanade or on a sidewalk area somewhere.

    Smokers will hate me,
    but I'm cool w/ that.
    I think Disneyland just needs one smoking area. I don't think we need three.

    Re: Fantasia Gardens smoking area?

    There should never be only one smoking area because of too much smoke coming out of one area... In fact there should be more just so there is no big collection of smokers, less smokers in one place=less smoke, less whining by non-smokers.

    amen to that!!

    i always thought either the park should be completely non smoking or there should be like a very vast place on both sides of the park that's like specially made for only smoking places, but that costs money and i don't think money should be spent on smokers

    You got nothing to worry about, smokers' bodies hate them. So it's a circle of hate .

    I agree 100%.
    I think Disneyland should be completely smoke-free.
    Unfortunately I'm sure that would cut down on park attendance a bit... and while I don't really care if that happens, I'm sure Disney does.

    I hate smoking with a passion.
    Nothing bothers me more than people smoking outside of designated smoking areas. It bothers EVERYONE.
    Luckily I have no shame, and I call people out on it.
    Unfortunately 80% of people who are smoking in non-smoking areas know that they're doing something wrong and are usually *******s about moving.

    Another thing I can't stand seeing- when small children are forced to hang out in smoking areas and endure second-hand smoke because their parents smoke.

    In my personal experience, I've never been bothered by cigarette smoke at Disneyland.

    Re: Fantasia Gardens smoking area?

    Some people just don't know about the smoking rules in DL. A lot of smokers not from Ca think they're okay if they're outside. I was hanging out in the stonewalled observation area aside the Teacups enjoying a frozen lemonade on a hot day when a guy parked himself close by and lit up. I befriended him and was just about to lay the "look out or you'll get in trouble for smoking, there's a smokers' area just across there" speech when a Photopass CM pounced on him. He was fine about it and he joked about how I almost saved him and he wandered off to the smokers' area.

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.
