Re: Disney Bans Smoking in ALL Parks

Seems like a great idea. As a non smoker there's literally nothing I hate more than being in a queue where people are smoking. Oh I totally agree smoking in the queue is totally disrespectful It isn't like that in Disney world. There are prob 2 smoking areas in each park and they are well out of th...

Disney Bans Smoking in ALL Parks

It was announced yesterday by the Disney parks that smoking will be banned from the 1st May 2019 in all Parks/Water parks. Guests wanting to smoke or vape will have to leave the park to an outside designated area.  I understand that there are a lot of people who don't smoke and will be happy with th...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I personally think Nick Varney is a muppet but listening to his press chat with the BBC I am changing my mind.

"they will want for nothing" .....

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Not really sure why the disabled are allowed to get straight on. No one forces them to go to a theme park it's a choice. Why should an able bodied person wait in a queue for 2 hours and a disabled person not have to wait ? Shoot me down if you wish, but that's my opinion. I'm aware of the logistics...

Re: Has Alton Towers lost its touch?

Tbh

I think that it could be that I have the disney bug and have been a few times since 2008

I always try to have a good time there but think that due to issues with the annual pass team it is a let down for me but thanks for putting me back on the right track

Re: Gate price for pregnant women

Congratulations  :D

I do not think that you will be able to get a disabled ticket: you have to show proof of disability i.e. blue badge/dwp paperwork.

Call customer services before you visit, or if you know someone with an annual pass they maybe able to get friends and family disc for you

Re: how strict are the height restrictions

very strict on Nemesis, Air and Rita

Large soled shoes are a good idea but the ride ops will ask them to remove the shoes to check the height.
