Tried that. They acted clueless. Kept repeating the mantra, "It's ALL nonsmoking NOW...." I don't think they got it.

That is very helpful and I'm sorry to pester, but what do those building numbers correlate to? My POP map only lists them by decade and gives room numbers, such as the "Lady" building being a '50s building with rooms 1101-1472. If you could help me identify them, I'd really appreciate it.

Ahhhh np... happy to help if I can. The room numbers correlate to this: First # is the building, second is floor and third and fourth #'s are the actual room number.

Besides the obvious answer of quitting altogether , what can I do?
Ok I really never thought of this before. I have tried to quit before our upcoming trip in a week!!! I am travelling with another single parent, but we are separate rooms. I don't know what I will do in the evening if I want to leave the room to have a smoke. I guess I will just have one on the way back to the room after we get off the buses and not have another one we leave in the morning SD would not be ok with me leaving him in the room, not sure I would be either... don't know what i will do

Ah, gee, I thought I posted this the other day, but... go to the "Groovy New Pop Century FAQ" thread. Go to page 79. There's a post there that tells which buildings had (at the time, i.e. prior to the new policy) smoking-optional rooms. If it's not page 79, go backwards - it won't be any earlier than page 76.

That is a huge help. I'm not a slacker, but I admit I had not slogged through 79 pages of POP FAQs. Thanks for the hint.

Hello to all and many thanks for this great thread with all the helpful info. I stumbled on this site while researching my smoking options during our upcoming trip in Nov. and I had to join. This is a terrific place.
Have been to WDW many times and have to say I was not happy to hear of the resorts new smoking policy. But that's not gonna stop me from going!
The updated resort maps are a big help. Thought I would pass along some info I found on a WDW resorts review site. They state that smoking is permitted on the porches of the Fort Wilderness cabins and at the campsites, along with the usual DSAs. I have stayed there before and the cabins are a pretty good distance from each other and I can see how that could be possible. Does anyone out there know if this is true? If so, then FW here I come!

Yes, that is correct. I got an email from WDW guest relations stating the same thing and spoke with the Ft. Wilderness manager and was quoted the same thing. :-)

Just got back from WL and while I was disappointed in the DSA's, they weren't that bad. We stayed in the main building, so the DSA just outside or the arcade worked nice. If DH was napping and didn't want to watch the kids while I smoked, I bribed the kids with the arcade and I went to smoke, that was a good 15 minutes alone.

In the mornings, I would go to RF, get my coffee and head out to behind the pool bar, by the beach and smoke over there, at least there are tables with umbrella there.

Funny story about smoking one night.....we were all getting off the bus from MK's EMH, it was about 2a. So all the non smokers took the children and the smokers settled into the smoking area....well one man decides to join his wife (she smokes, he doesn't), he gets into the tight little area and starts doing coughs and waving his hand in front of his face to shoo the smoke away.

There was a big burly kinda guy who was smoking and not having a magical day, who started screaming at this guy to get the heck out of the smoking area if you are going to act like that. All the smokers started laughing and said no non-smokers are allowed here, just like we can't smoke in your section, you have to smoke in ours. So either smoke and get out was the message.

Yup I just got back from the POP last night! All they tell you at chEck in is that ALL rooms are non smoking! No mention of DSA's, nothing on the maps about DSA! I found 2 DSA's on my own...Out side the food court, and near the 80/90's pool! If i didnt read these boards, I would'nt know anything about it.

But people were smoking all over! And people were reacting to it...I thought one lady got stung by a bee, her body was doing confulsions. I asked if she was ok...she just passed someone smoking a cigarette.

I also noticed one day they were cleaning out a room in the 70's section...with this huge powerful fan! NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE.

Also none of the DSA's I saw were covered by anything. Both in blazing sunlight & rain. And of course after it rains the seats are wet.

Really? Maybe you got an old map...the one I got 2 weeks ago (below) had the DSA's marked on it plain as day. It didn't have bold letters across the top saying "only smoke in certain areas," but the locations where it is permitted were on there.

Pop still allows smoking by the Foodcourt .that;'s great. That was one of my favorite soking areas. How about anywhere near the pool or on balconies . They were my favs . I know they say no to balconies but I was just wondering? I never smoked in the rooms anyway I don't at home either

Looks like they have them at the edge of every pool. Not right by the pool, but near by.
