    Re: Disneyland Should Learn from Six Flags

    The weird thing is, I never really see people smoking. The park has designated areas, but I just don't see many of them? Frankly as long as they are not blowing it in people's faces, it is there choice.

    The only smoking spot I think that should be moved is the Condor Flats one in DCA, or maybe it was the day I went. It was fairly crowded and windy, and a cloud of smoke just sorta blew around.

    And guest under the age of 18 will not be allowed to smoke in the parks as well. I am not sure how to help enforce this one though?
    Thanks wrs28220. I knew the article was somewhere but didn't have time to look when I was posting.

    I think we can put to rest any idea of Disney taking advice from Six Flags.

    Re: Disneyland Should Learn from Six Flags

    Does Disneyland still not sell cigarettes under the counters?

    I thought that banning cigarettes from the shops was a heavy-handed decision from the Pressler-Harriss era. There was absolutely no logic in that move.

    Cigarettes are available for sale in the Resort Hotels, but not in the parks.

    Re: Disneyland Should Learn from Six Flags

    Personally, I don't smoke, and I don't delieve I ever will. But, there are some people that do. In my opinion, Disneyland should keep special designed areas for smoking, but they should find a way to make it so that the smoke does not travel. In that way, the people that smoke can smoke, and people that don't smoke don't have to smell smoke.

    If SFMM wants to be more family friendly, they should worry about the smell and condition of their restrooms...YUCK!!! But that is another subject. Sorry.

    Does that make any sense?

    If I was a smoker, I would be upset.

    Re: Disneyland Should Learn from Six Flags

    I don't think it would occur to most people to ask for something that isn't available on the shelf. Most are not aware that most shops have many kinds of OTC medicine available for purchase. I guess if I were a smoker, I wouldn't expect an amusement park to carry them. My in-laws all smoke and they always bring plenty of cigarettes with them, since they smoke a cerain brand. I assume that most smokers would not leave the house without making sure they had enough to get them through the day.

    Who cares if tourists don't know the laws governing California on smoking. I'm sure they learned real fast the first time they went to a restaurant. Stop the smoking for the whole park. I don't care if anyone has a nicotine fit. You don't have a right to poison the air that I and every kid in the park breathes. Make DCA a smokers park. Maybe that will spur attendance there!

    I assume therefore that you want the Autopia and parking trams removed as well. The exhaust from these vehicles are poisoning the same air. We should probably get rid of the fireworks too. I've smelled the smoke from them many times at the park. That can't be healthy, can it?
