Hi, babygirlamg!
According to the new maps on the My Disney Experience App, there are 2.
DSA East is in the courtyard in front of community hall, or the most westernly end of courtyard.
DSA West appears to be on the roof at The Top of the World in the southwestern corner.

PS--Love this App!

Front entrance:



Back of resort...right outside of building looking toward the pool:

we are staying at POR riverside May 8-13 and we are in the preferred section. I have looked at several maps but can't seem to find one with DSA on it, I just was trying to figure out the closest one to the preferred buildings.

when I was there, I was in building 14 alligator Bayou. If I remember correctly, when I walked down the path (really wasn't too far) a little past bldg 18 there was a bench where you could smoke. Also behind bldg 18 near the quiet pool there was an area also. hope this helps and that they haven't changed them since i was there in 2009. Have fun.

Weird WL Question

I was just looking at a map of the Wilderness Lodge and noticed something I found very peculiar - is there really a smoking area outside of the entrance to the Sturdy Branches fitness club? I know resorts need designated smoking areas, but to have one outside of the fitness club seems kind of odd.

Yes, there is. It's a bench with an ashtray.

Yep...it's true! A friend and I commented on that while we enjoying our morning coffee and smokes. Seemed like a funny place to put a DSA!

I recently went to Busch Gardens Tampa, and Universal Orlando. There is no problem finding smoking areas at either park as all have signs before them. And they are comfy with benches and in the shade.

Why does Disney make it so hard for the smokers, always changing areas, no designated signs. It seems the only way to find a place is to smell the smoke!

It is easy to find the DSA's now.
On the DisneyWorld.com website click on theme parks at top of page,
scroll down to maps.
Bring up the map for park or resort your checking on.
In the option box at top, choose guest services.
In the search box, to the right of the guest services, type designated smoking areas.
They will all pop up with the blue teardrop and you can zoom in for clarity!
Super easy....I added them to my park maps, so we know where to look.

I just checked the WDW Dolphin using this method, and while I can get the resort map, I'm not seeing where the smoking area is. Does anyone who has been recently know where it's currently located, or even better have a picture?

We are staying at Art of Animation in the cars suites. We have one smoker with us, my son inlaw. I was thinking of making a request for a room that would be convenient for him. Any smokers been there and can tell me a good request. Can you smoke at your car in the parking areas of resorts or parks?

Thanks!
