    Safety Considerations

    .
    We work hard to offer a comfortable, safe and enjoyable experience for all our Guests. Please assist us by showing common courtesy to fellow Park Guests. Please be respectful of others. Do not use profanity or engage in unsafe, illegal or offensive behavior. Please abide by all safety warnings and notices. Proper attire — including shoes and shirts — must be worn at all times.

    For your safety while on attractions, please keep your hands, arms, feet and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Supervise children at all times.
    Please honor designated viewing areas and crosswalks. Also, for the comfort of those around you, we request that there be no flash photography, eating or drinking in any attractions.

    Service Animals


    Trained service animals are welcome in most locations throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort. All service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times. Guests should follow the same attraction entrance procedures as described for Guests using wheelchairs. Due to the nature of some attractions, service animals may not be permitted to ride. In those instances, a member of the Guest's party must remain with the animal. Walt Disney World® Resort hosts and hostesses are not permitted to take control of service animals.

    Designated "Break" Areas

    Each Theme Park allows Guests to use backstage locations for service animal relief areas. Please consult the Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities for specific information.

    Restrictions

    Due to the nature of the experience, service animals are not permitted on the following attractions:


    Magic Kingdom® Park

    Dining and Shopping


    Most dining and shopping locations in the Theme Parks are accessible to Guests with disabilities. Cast Members are available to assist Guests when necessary. Some counter-service locations have narrow queues formed by railings which may be difficult for Guests using wheelchairs. At these locations, we suggest that a member of the Guest's party order and transport the food, or contact a host or hostess for assistance.

    Smoking

    For the comfort of all Guests, smoking is permitted in designated areas only. Please refer to Park signage for designated smoking locations.

    Stamina or Endurance Concerns

    Some Guests may be concerned that they do not have the stamina to wait in our queues. We strongly suggest these Guests consider using a wheelchair, personal scooter or Electric Convenience Vehicle (ECV), as the distance between our attractions is much greater than the length of our queues.
