On Sunday, Walt Disney World Resort revealed that for Guest and Cast Member safety, filming is now prohibited on Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom. It quickly led fans to daydream that filming would be banned at Disney Parks altogether.

This decision comes amid months of escalating tensions between Disney Parks fans and Disney Vloggers. Petitions arose to ban vlogging at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort soon after Tokyo Disney Resort enacted strict rules on filming and live-streaming.

It comes as no surprise that Disney Park fanatics are thrilled with the new rules on Space Mountain. A Reddit post about the ban from u/austinalexn quickly amassed hundreds of votes of support and ecstatic comments. u/ugahairydawgs wrote:

Somebody had their flashlight out on Peter Pan last week, shooting it up toward the ceiling and the upper track guide. My son is still young enough that he thinks it’s magic that we just float away at the beginning of the ride, so we were having to distract him so he couldn’t see it.

Then we were in Haunted Mansion and there were two ladies who had their phones out the entire time there as well.

Just don’t get it. I would honestly be good if they banned phones on rides and in shows across the board.

“If I see one more person take a flash picture in the seance room on Haunted Mansion I might snap,” u/frostfall010 agreed. “Anyone’s who’s recording, particularly with a flash, is complete [sic] selfish.”

Overwhelmingly, fans met the news with a request to extend the ban to other Disney Parks rides. “Good. Now do Pirates and Mansion,” u/tomorrowschild said.

“SHOULD BE EVERY RIDE,” u/astorya wrote.

Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is one of many. Versions of the dark indoor coaster exist in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disneyland at Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. From Disney:

Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.

Zoom Through the Galaxy

Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!
