An unofficial Walt Disney World news and trip planning guide!

Walt Disney World Smoking Areas

Disney operates a strict no-smoking policy at all parks and resorts, but provides a number of designated smoking areas. Each park has several smoking locations. They are generally slightly out of the way of main walkways to prevent non-smokers smelling cigarettes.

The smoking locations are moved from time to time, so its always best to check their location on the up to date park maps provided at the entrance of each theme park.
