That is normal in these parts I pay $21.50 for two packs. We will be stopping by the Duty free on our way into the US and picking up a carton.

? about e-cigarettes and smoking areas

My MIL uses e-cigarettes and I was wondering if anyone knows how people respond to it within the resorts? We've had a mixed bag of luck with people -- some seem to misunderstand what it is and won't let her use it, others are totally okay and have no restrictions... just want to be prepared and prepare her.

Also, do the resort areas have any designated smoking areas - specifically BWI and the Boardwalk area? I know the actual hotels are smoke free, but are there spots for smokers? I've seen them in the parks but as a non-smoker, I've never looked for them elsewhere. Thanks!!!

Yes, all the resorts have designated smoking areas. They will be marked on the resort map. As far as e-cigarettes go, most say it's best that they be used in the designated smoking areas as they can be mistook for real cigarettes and she may be confronted.

TY Mods!

For some reason I dismissed 'Smoking DSA" as Disney lingo for something not related - I feel silly now

After perusing through, I realize there isn't a lot of info about ecigs, so I am going to call Disney and inquire about the e-cigarette policy. I'll make sure to post anything I find out!!!

Any word on the e-ciggs? Curious because i smoke them as well. I am assuming though, its probably easier just to stay within the smoking areas so your not explaining yourself everytime smoke comes out.

I e-mailed Guest Services a month or two ago to ask about e-cigs, and they told me the rules for e-cigs are the same as for smoking regular cigs. You can smoke them only in designated smoking areas. I was told the same thing at the Disney Hilton Head Resort when we were there in May. The rule doesn't make sense to me, and I hope they eventually decide to change it.

I think it makes sense from an enforcement perspective. It would take more time to figure out whether, for example, a person standing in line at check-in is smoking an e-cig or a regular cig. Plus non-smokers would panic at the sight, complain to CMs, and waste those CMs' time on the matter.

I agree that the rule might make it easier for CMs to enforce the no smoking policy, but I don't know how anyone could think my black e-cig with a blue tip was a regular cig. The part of the rule that really doesn't make sense to me is why e-cigs can't be used within the privacy of your hotel room. E-cigs don't produce an odor, except possibly a brief sweet smell, they aren't fire hazards, and there are no ashes.

We are on day 6 of an 8 day stay at the Poly. People have been smoking a lot o. Their patios & balconies all around us. I have spoken to manGement & they cleRly are not interested in bothering smoking guests. So may I say as a non-smoker that when you smoke on your balconies: please don't. It ruins the balcony for yor neighbors. Clearly many people care for no one but themselves. Really too bad. I am so glad my asthmatic daughter is not with us. She would not be able to tolerate the smoke & would be upset at being restricted from the balcony.

Sadly, some people just don't get it. However, that is one reason why this thread is here, so people who want to comply with DSA's have a resource. And most if not all of the folks who come to this thread are those who want to do the right thing.

I don't smoke but Dbf does and we were both annoyed as heck that our neighbor was smoking on his balcony, when there was a perfectly good DSA right around the corner that could have been used, and should have been used. All you can do is report it to managment, although in your case it didn't seem to do any good.

I follow the rules and don't smoke anywhere I am not supposed to. Allowing people to use e-cigs on their balcony or in their room would take care of much of the problem of people smoking on their balcony and annoying others. There is nothing from an e-cig that would bother anyone except for the few people who panic when they see someone with anything that vaguely resembles a cigarette. If it were permitted, I think more people would try e-cigs instead of regular cigs so that they could comply with the rules and still enjoy their cigs. I'm sure that wouldn't be true for everyone, but it would cut down on the amount of "smoking" in undesignated areas.

I so sympathize with your discomfort. Shame on management! You are only asking for THEIR non-smoking policy to be enforced. You are paying just as much to be their guest as those around you.

The neighbor I was referring too was definately not smoking an e-cig, I could smell it with the door closed. And I totally agree with you that e-cigs should be allowed. I know several friends who use them and I have never smelled them, except maybe a sweet smell depending on the cartridge. I tried using one when I was trying to quit but it just gave me a headache so I didn't try it again.

I am thankful that someone started this thread because it is a fantastic resource!!
