We're leaving in a few days for WDW so if anyone has a DSA they want me to check out in the parks let me know and I'll see if it's still there. Heck, I'll probably be at the DSA anyways so....

My DW convinced me to stay at the Poly for a couple of nights next month, so if anyone has any recent experience with the DSAs there, I would appreciate hearing them.

Thanks.

Yes please. My favorite MK spots are just outside the little shop that is joined to Main Street Confectionery and the other is the one behind the castle, kind of on the "bridge" where you can smoke and have a nice little peek across the water ..... love it!

If you mean the one outside the Chapeau and Tony's, yes that one is still there as of last week.

The one by the castle bridge is still there also.

We were at the Poly in Sept and found plenty of DSAs. There is one by the theme parks bus stop, one outside the back door of the Great House, a nice covered one on the 2nd floor walkway that connects Nuie and Rarotonga, one outside the laundromat. I'm sure there are others but those are the ones I used.

Hooray! Thank you. I just could not remember the name of the Chapeau as I was posting. I don't know how many times I have been dragged in there by DD. I always say yes because I know what awaits me outside when we are done

But it switched sides, as of last Oct. Used to be on the Tink store side, but it's the opposite side now.

I'll snoop around with my maps and see which ones are where. I do that anyway (you know - smoking ) so I can figure out if they've taken away any more of the good DSA's. My fav used to be behind Liberty Square - but now that area is a meet-n-great. I did not know that the one by the Castle was still there - have to look for that one!

sometimes there just is no rhyme or reason. our fav. spot is gone. you can see the fountain at epcot, but it is WAY in and "inlet", near mousesavers, but not near the entrance at all!! someone would have to go out of their way (really) to fo near it. (we use it anyway, have never been "called on it". if anyone ever said anything, we would claim ignorance and move.
now, the one by Aloha Isle? we avoid that one! how silly! families are there having ice cream. we HAVE used it, but as soon as anyone shows the slight annoyance, we put out our cigs. so we finally just decided to avoid it entirely.

And nobody EVER went there! Even people watching the fountain would sit out on the wall close to the fountain! I HATE that TPTB took away that DSA!!! Hate it hate it hate it! I heard they removed the one near Living Seas as well! Yet, probably, the one near the restrooms near Guest Services is still there (tell me THAT'S not silly - how many more Guests have to walk through there than the little UNUSED nook outside MouseGears????). Is there still one between The Land and Imagination? How about near Test Track? Norway? Just to the right when you enter World Showcase? Way back in France? ANYWHERE else in WS?

DHS - I remember one in a sunken area not too far from 50s Prime Time and Indiana Jones; one near Tower of Terror; one near the bakery behind/attached to Brown Derby... one near the Coke vendor and the entrance to the Backstage Tour...

AK - next to/behind the bar in Africa; on the bridge between Expedition Everest and DinoLand; behind the store and lattice fencing IN DinoLand, where the dinosaur is...

And I suppose they took away the DSA opposite BTMRR?

the one by coral reef was great too!. it was a TOTAL dead end!!! it went to no where.!
last time we were there, tho one between the land and imagination was still there.
the one by Big thunder?! still there! )at least in august. if you read hummy nebos' Trip reports, he takes a picture, every trip, sitting in the rocking chair. and other trip reporters (his fans!) have made a point of taking thier pictures in that chair, also! It's nebo's favorite smoking spot..
the one near test track is there. the one by norway is gone. the one to the left as you enter WS is gone (between the Odyssey entrance and the big store in world showcase plaza. the canada one is gone. the one in france is still there. the one in China, by the gardens, is still there, the one in the gardens (by the british invasion group) is gone.
the one behind touluca turky legs (between RRC and TOT has been moved to a dead end by TOT. the one by brown derby is still there. the one by Indiana jones .. by sci fi, is still there..
the one is africa by the dawa bar is there, but moved behind the bar, not by the wall by the water. the one you had to go down to (it was probably to hard for you to get to anyway) by andrapaur? tea co. is gone. the one by the dinosaur, behind the shop is still there.
this was as of last august, though.. who knows???

Forget it. I'm going to Las Vegas. Sure, you can't smoke in restaurants. Yeah, they banned smoking inside the airport (but just back in 2008). Some public restrooms ban smoking (while others have ashtrays in the stalls and on the counters). No smoking in the shows. Other than that, it's harder to find NONsmoking areas.

Want to smoke in a park? Go for it. Sitting at a slot machine? Sure; yes, it's polite to ask someone already seated at the next machine if they mind, but really, it's allowed. Ditto for the tables. Walk around the streets? Heck, you can DRINK on the public sidewalks. Nobody's going to ban smoking any time soon. By the pool? Sure. IN the pool? Don't see why not - some of the pools have swim-up bars, even swim-up blackjack. I don't know about you, but I like to smoke when I drink... and when I gamble.

I'm going to Las Vegas.

The ones I remember seeing from our March trip are:

Epcot: Between Journey into Imagination and the Land; the concrete pit near Test Track; the plaza at Italy; and on the walkway to International Gateway (the back exit to the Epcot Resorts). We didn't go around World Showcase to Norway and China so I don't know if those two DSA's are still there.

DHS: There was one outside the Tower of Terror shop, all the way in the back; one next to Starring Rolls Bakery at the beginning of Sunset Blvd.; and the one across from Sci-Fi Dine-In is still there. I didn't see any others.

AK: The one on the bridge near Expedition Everest is still there; the one behind the shop in Dinoland (with the lattice fence) is there. Those are all I saw, but I didn't get a chance to look for the one in Africa.

MK: There must have been one near Aloha Isle because DH went there to smoke (or maybe there wasn't and he smoked anyway, I don't know); there was one across from Big Thunder Mountain, down near the river; there is still the small one across from Tony's in Town Square. We didn't get to Tomorrowland so I don't know if there were any over there. That's all I saw in MK.

On this trip I did notice a lot more people smoking outside of the DSA's than I have on previous trips, probably because of the poor locations, maps, signage, and crowding at the actual DSA's.
