Does anyone have an address/ phone # that we smokers can register our objections too !! I don't havr a problem with designated areas, but they need to be more of them and clearly marked !At Pop I can understand the one near the Main door being taken away , but the area by the bar is ridiculous , that needs to be reinstated !!

Well, when I was at Pop I complained... twice. the second time they brought over the manager.
but whoever I spoke to the first time gave me a card and says this:
Walt Disney World Guest Communication Services
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL
32830-0040

and wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com... card says to include name, phone number email and home address when contacting them.

yeah, is nice before heading to bus to have a smoking spot... really, Goofy's isn't THAT far.. but really, for me it WAS out of the way.
at the time, 2 benches, one with an umbrella over it. that was it. always crowded. one day someone grabbed a table from where there are tables right outside along the food court and put it over there.

DH and I had actually considered quitting before our trip to the world. But, we decided we'd hold off until after the vacation.
We both remembered we had a great time last year meeting people, in all the different DSA's.
At POP it was kind of neat to meet people in the morning and talk about the plans of the day, and then meet up later in the evening to talk about how things went.

Folks, the FAQ threads need to stay on topic. They get unwieldy enough as it is, without off-topic posts.

This thread is solely for questions about the locations of smoking areas at the resorts. Personal conversations and planning meet-ups needs to be done elsewhere.

Thanks!

Has anyone smoked on the balconies at AKL? I always do this in hotels and never seems to be a problem. We smoke in the open air, flick the ash in a cup then clean it up and throw the butts away in the trash after. Was planning on doing this again at AKL; does anyone have any experience?

Also I think it'd be pretty amazing to have a sundown smoke on the balcony looking over the savannah!

Smoking is not allowed on balconies at WDW resorts, especially at AKL. They have cameras set up to watch the balconies to be sure you don't smoke or throw things on the savanna. They do a great job of protecting the animals, and I think you would get into a lot of trouble smoking on your balcony. You can enjoy a sundown smoke at the DSA near the pool. It has a lot of trees, nice benches and ash trays, is beside the hot tub, and has a very tropical, jungle feel to it. You aren't supposed to smoke even on the balconies overlooking the smoking area.

Some questions are better left not asked or unanswered. AKL has 2 DSAs, neither with any cover.

Hi Everyone; We just returned yesterday. AKL still have only 2. BLT wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Most of the time we crossed the sky bridge to Contemporary (our room was 6th fl south side) & smoked outside the 4th floor. Lots of benches & perfect view of the castle.
