    Smoking Area is getting moved

    To all of those smoker haters i have some good news brought to you by courtesy of David Michael.

    Disneyland to move the Tomorrowland Smoking Section

    Last year, Disney had to move the Tomorrowland Smoking section due to the opening of the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction and the need for an extended queue. The only place they could figure out where to place it was the pathway between the Autopia Entrance and the Tomorrowland Train Station. Alas, this was a fairly narrow pathway and forced many park guests and Cast Members to walk through the area.




    Well, Disney is moving the area this week to the Fantasia Gardens area (also known as the former Motor Boat Dock area). This new area will keep Smokers away from other park guests and hopefully will work better than the current location.





    Thank You, maybe its one step closer to banning smoking it in the park and having a seperate area outside the park for smoking which is my dream. Hey i can dream can't I.

    They should have done this from the beginning. It's closer to the old closed area too.

    That's practically in fantasyland, so i dont see how they can call it a TL smoking area.

    I wont complain too loud though since i hated having to walk (walk my family) through the cloud to get on the train at TL station.

    Re: Smoking Area is getting moved

    Aww man. I'm actually kinda sad that they're putting it there. I always go over there to relax. I get enough smoke at home with some family that smokes, now my favorite relaxing area at Disneyland will be a smoking area. I don't like this move.


    And of course the poor ducks that hang out over there. So much smoke for the duckies.

    Not everyone will like a smoking area no matter where it is (even if it's banned, it will upset some people). I like this idea because that part of the park is never used anyways and is really secluded.

    Re: Smoking Area is getting moved

    Oh, by the way, as a disclaimer to the OP's top line...I am not a "smoker hater".

    I chose not to smoke, I prefer not to walk through second hand smoke, but I do not hate those that choose to smoke.

    thanks, now back to your regularly scheduled chat thread.

    It kind of sucks now because guests would have to be directed half way across the park for the nearest smoking section.

    And what about all those people that get cranky if they go a certain amount of time? They are not going to go outside the park every two hours to smoke. I've gone to the park with those people. They are not gonna like that at all. And people who come with them won't either.

    Re: Smoking Area is getting moved

    Is it safe to say this solution will appeal to the most people? Disney has to come up with something that is somewhere between "Smoke anywhere you want" and "no smoking anywhere, ever".

    Let's give Disney a thumbs up for trying to appease both sides.

    Re: Smoking Area is getting moved

    That seems awfully far away from Tomorrowland for the smoking area.

    Can anyone list ALL smoking areas?

    1) Near TSI rafts
    2) Motor Boat Cruise
    3) Big Thunder walkway

    What are the others?

    Re: Smoking Area is getting moved

    It sucks, they only have three smoking areas in DL. You can smoke OUTSIDE the park!!!

    DCA:

    1) PPP
    2) Amphitheater
    3) Condor Flat - across from Soarin
    4) Hollywood - Millionaire building.
