Ohhhhhh no! Hahahaaa bless her, young children are always one step away from giving us a near heart attack! I'm always running around after my young cousins.. they sure do have a mind of their own!
She's 4 and has already given us all numerous near heart attacks! Her favorite ride last August was Test Track...with arms held high above her head and yelling "wheeeeeee" the entire time! Please let us know how your trip goes and if your Mum "survived"/maybe enjoyed the DSA's!

Perhaps you could photograph some of the DSA's around the parks so we see where the newer ones are located?

Just a reminder from your friendly neighborhood moderator...

This FAQ thread is only for the discussion of DSA's. Any off-topic posts will be deleted. These threads get pretty long as it is, without discussion of resorts or theme parks or general Disney trip-planning stuff.

Thanks!

Lynne

Oh dear! bless her heart.

& i sure will! I'm sure she'll be fine.. she'll get over it, but i'm hoping she won't have to have a cigarette as much as we'll be so busy.

My Dad will more than likely take photo's of the DSA's, i'm sure he did when i went last time just because he thought it was 'hilarious'.

I remember my parents saying just clean the DSA's are in the parks aswell! Do the cigarette bins (whatever they're called) get cleaned out alot at the Hotels too?

Does anyone know the official policy for using electronic cigarettes at Disney resorts? I asked at HH last week and was told I couldn't use e-cigarettes anywhere except designated smoking areas. Several other guests told me they were using them on their balconies with no problem.

I'm not sure what HH is? There is no issue with using them in your resort room. Even if they had a policy against using them in your room, it would be unenforcable as there is no way to tell it's being used. I've read some posts on other boards of people using them openly around the parks without issue too. If you're concerned about it, just be discrete. Don't blow out plumes of vapor and you'll be fine.

I've been using mine for 7 months and personally can't wait to kickback in my AKL room relaxing with it rather than having to trot off to a remote DSA at the resort.

Sorry....HH is the DVC resort at Hilton Head. When I asked, the lady at the front desk said "Uncle Walt" was always watching and not to try using e-cigarettes in the villa or on the balcony. She apologized, said she also was a smoker, and added that she didn't agree with the policy.

I plan to shoot off an email asking about Disney's policy on E-cigs. I will be super PO'd if they were to say that they are banned except in DSAs. If that is the policy than I would say that the entire ban is based on the smoking act itself and not just the 2nd hand smoke which would be an infringement on one's rights. E-cigs do not emit 2nd hand smoke; only a clear vapor.

That being said, I would not myself or would I recommend anyone else walk around a park "smoking" an e-cig just because it would be difficult for a CM or a guest from afar to be able to tell it was an e-cig and that could cause problems. But...."smoking" an e-cig in your resort room or on your balcony or away from others should be permitted. I believe commonsense should be used.

Just my opinion but I will post my reply from Disney.

Unless "Uncle Walt" has a concealed camera in your room, once again it's unenforcable.

I'm not big into public displays of mine either, so I will be stealth vaping around the park for sure. I'll save the big plumes for bathroom breaks and my resort room. Please do post back after you get a reply from Disney. I'm curious on their stance.

I couldn't agree with you more!!

even tho we quit smoking, and have never used an E-cig, there is no reason why it should bother anyone!
