Disney announced Thursday that it will be removing all smoking areas from theme parks and banning oversized strollers.

On May 1, Disney is going smoke-free. Smoking will be prohibited in all parks, but designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances of the parks, and in designated areas at Disney Springs and at Disney resort hotels.

Also, starting on May 1, strollers will have to be no wider than 31 inches, which is a reduction from the current 36-inch limit.

Disney officials said in a blog post that many strollers on the market, including many double jogging strollers, fit within these size guidelines.

Disney World has double strollers available for rent.

Disney said the changes are designed to help guest flow and ease congestion, making the parks more enjoyable for everyone.

The park is preparing for an increase in crowds when Star Wars land opens in August. The attraction will officially open Aug. 29 at Disney World. The openings will be done in phases and you can read more about how that will work here.
