I'm sure these questions have been answered somewhere within the 116 pages... I've read the past 10 and found stuff on WDW. I apologize if the answer was posted already and I missed it.
Hi there, sorry I just saw your post. Disneyland has several smoking areas in the parks (DL has one by the Matterhorn facing the autopia track, one by Thunder Mountain Railroad, and one on Rivers of America outside Haunted Mansion (which, incidentally, is also a great place to watch Fantasmic without waiting for a spot, if you don't mind the smoke.) As for Paradise Peir, the only one I used on our visit there last month is outside the main entrance, past the valet area. It has a couple benches and an ashcan. I much preferred the DSA's at the Disneyland Hotel (especially the one by the fire place!)

What are the best DSAs in the parks for watching the fireworks from?

This is my favorite DSA at the Poly...in front of the Tangaroa Terrace opposite the "parking lot" entrance to Tokelau:



There's another between Tokelau and Tahiti that I used but failed to take a picture of.

This one is directly out the Ceremonial House toward the pool. There is now a bench there also but no shade:



There's one to the right of the front entrance to the Great Ceremonial House close to the CM stairs to the monorail area on the 2nd floor.

Visited the Poly last week for breakfast at Kona and walked the grounds...discovered there's also a DSA between the patio area of Capt. Cook's and the pool. It's well shaded and has a bench. Haven't gone through all my photos yet, if I have a picture of this one I'll post it later.

I'm glad you love AKL; it's not my favorite resort and after our stay there a couple weeks ago is even further "down on the list"! First of all, this is where I spent my last night at DW:



Had been having some problems with the index finger of my right hand before our trip and the "problem" decided to rear it's ugly head the 2nd day of our visit. By Friday, I was in such pain, I checked in with the walk-in clinic close to DTD and ended up spending the next 8 hours waiting FOR my appointment or waiting AT my appointment! Bad infection, put on antibiotics and made a trip to our local ER the day we returned home. This is the garage area DSA:



Photos of pool area DSA:





Entrance to pool area from front of lodge:


View of main entrance area from that DSA:



Now, if you're in the areas between the lobby and the pool I would say the trip to a DSA wouldn't be TO bad; BUT, we were in the Simba area which meant a walk down the LONG hallway, down the elevator to parking area and then the walk to the DSA. Not to bad but a good 5 minute "trip". If you are unfortunate enough to be in the Zazu section, I'd say, "Pack some water and food, the trip down is going to take some time". My walk down this l-o-n-g hallway:



I even counted one day and I took over 200 steps from the lobby elevator to our door; the walk to the parking area elevator wasn't quite as long...maybe 150 steps! Let's just say, if I "lived" at AKV's, I wouldn't have much of a problem quitting!

Hello Everyone!

I have a silly question....my husband and I are going to WDW in December. Both of us smoke.

Neither one of us have flown in about 20+ years. I know that we cannot bring a lighter on an airplane.
What about matches?

And do you just purchase lighters once you get to your destination? Does Disney even sell lighters?

Thanks so much for your help!

Yes you can bring matches , I confess I have packed lighters in my carryon and even 1 in my pocket !!this was an accident and I did not realise I had it till I was thru security
It did not make the metal detector go off or the one in my carryon has gone thru fine !! The worse they will do is confiscate it You can pack them in your checked luggage as far as I know it is okay to do that!! Disney has lighters and cigarets but they are behind the counters and you have to ask !!At least they did last year !!

I thought you could take lighters now in your carryons. Seems like TSA lifted that regulation a year or so ago.

You certainly can take lighters on the plane. DH and I both took them 3 years ago on our honeymoon to Las Vegas. So, no problem to take them now.

You might want to ask on the Theme Parks Attractions & Strategies board.

Oh I did that in 2010 But I was worse! We were there for just over 2 weeks and I wanted to take a new (full) lighter with me so I bought a pack of 4 or 5. At the airport hotel before our early departure I had the pack on the bed to take one out and leave the others in the car. In the rush to get out of the room the whole pack was tossed into my carry on. I only found them when I unpacked at POFQ

But there was nothing to alert me or anyone else to the fact that they were there!
