If you’re looking for the best in dining, entertainment and shopping at the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disney Springs district is your go-to spot.
Disney Springs has a huge selection of restaurants with a wide array of culinary tastes sure to please any palate. It’s also the place to be for the best in live entertainment and nightlife, and if you’re looking for that specific Disney World souvenir, the newly-reimagined giant World of Disney Store has the hook-up.
But while Disney Springs is continually adding new restaurants, new venues and new nightlife hotspots, it is not adding new smoking areas–not now anyway. In fact, one smoking area at Disney Springs that was located where the Marketplace area transitions to Town Center has been removed. This smoking area was located between T-REX Restaurant and the UNIQLO store.
There are still several designated smoking areas at Disney Springs, including the following spots:
- West Side — Between Jaleo and Bongos and behind Cirque du Soleil (Number 1 on the map below)
- Marketplace — Adjacent to Disney’s Wonderful World of Memories and near Goofy’s Candy Co. (Number 4 on the map below)
- Town Center — Adjacent to Morimoto Asia and near the bus stops (Number 7 on the map below)
Here’s a map from the Disney website that shows the current smoking areas. Note that number 2 has been removed, although the other areas remain.
In May of this year, Walt Disney World and Disneyland began enforcing a new ban on smoking in multiple park and resort areas. The ban includes all theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon water parks at Disney World, Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World.
There are still designated areas for smoking outside the entrances to these areas and smoking areas are still located at resort hotels at Disney World and Disneyland. However, smoking areas are subject to change. For the most up-to-date information on designated smoking areas at Disney World, download and access the My Disney Experience app.
