I left a message with Patrick but he still hasn't returned my call.

I have caller display so I know he never tried to call!

Very annoyed. I love Disney and I really want to go back to WDW, but I'm not willing to risk my health/life.

I'm going to try out the DCL and DL/DCA this next year. Hopefully, I will not have the problems with asthma that I do at WDW.

jsut like the old DSA behind the Christmas shop in Lberty square, it was out of the way, no real reason for any non-smokers to walk by it. so.. they elimintatd it and made it a meet a greet for Princess Tianana.

but! they relocated it. to the "bridge", wooden walkway that everyone uses as a shortcut to BTMR.. many nonsmokers walk by it. go figure. now non smokers are bothered, smokers get dirty looks.
I really miss those two DSA's. Especially the one in Liberty Square.

BTW - Congrats on staying a non smoker! I'm very VERY proud of you for sticking with it!

thanks! hubby and I quit together. and now we both weigh more!

anyone who knows Nebo from his trip reports knows about his vision problems. smoking is not good at all for the retinas. that was the main reason we finally quit.

but I still beleive in smokers' rights, and I think it stinks that they keep taking away DSAs.

Has anyone stayed at BLT? It seems there are only 2 DSA's & kind of a hike to get to either one from the rooms.

Yes, and yes it is a hike to get to a DSA from BLT. If I was a non smoker I would have liked BLT a lot better. OKW and SSR are a lot more smoker-friendly IMO. Sorry!

I really do not want to stay there but the kids do. I may just do a couple of nights with the rest of the stay at OKW. AKV only has 2 but if you stay in the value/standard rooms there close enough.

Thanks for the info! I thought I read somewhere that it was allowed. Oh well that is probably closer than another resort's DSA.

True! I like the value or standard rooms there - the pool view rooms at Jambo are as good for DSA access.

You can smoke on the deck at the Cabins at FW.

Also we paid for lagoon view if this helps to find us a location. Lastly my mom was thinking if we stay ground level she can just go out of the room via the patio and smoke. I told her no.

I personally didn't think it was to bad; yes, it is a "hike" but I sorta enjoyed the time AWAY from DH, 2 DD's; son-in-law and 2 DGD's!

At front entrance (which I think is a stupid place to put one ) guests walking back from MK cross right in front of this DSA:



DSA is on other side of fountain in the back. I really liked this one...nice spot to watch the sunrise!:

My very favorite was Tokelau, ground floor . We had pool view of quiet pool...not classified as lagoon view...I think it was garden view. Our room was on the "front"~close to parking lot~but we had the 2nd room on the left after we entered. Literally the shortest walk I've ever had to a DSA since they changed the smoking policy. You are correct...no smoking on patios...must use DSA's.



Room patio view:

Unless they have changed it within the last few months, Tuvalu does have a DSA at the end of the building on the marina side--third floor. There is also one (covered) at Figi on the 2nd floor. Another is located on the 2nd floor of Samoa--south side (covered) as well.
