The one near Aloha is great - it is one of the few shaded spots.

I know that I spent last trip ASKING CMs where the DSAs were as they didn't correspond with the maps a lot of the time. Most of them were there, but not where indicated on the map which led to people smoking where the map said you could, but actually not being in a designated smoking area. I don't know why they mess with them. The DSAs are generally set back from the main walkways so I don't see how this could upset non smokers except in principle.

Well I was in MK last night and the DSA by the Castle is now next to Sir Mickey's but is behind the castle. I think this one might be different from the one that I liked that was closer to the funnel cake place in Liberty Square. Maybe that one's always been there and I just didn't see it before?

The DSA that was in Liberty Square behind the shops is down next to the water across from Frontierland shops/attractions. The DSA by Splash Mtn is still there, and so are the ones by Tonys and Aloha Isle.

Tomorrow will either be EPCOT t is AK so I'll see which DSA's I can locate.

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.
katie, you crack me up! Is Vegas where all the smokers and drinkers (and gamblers) go? We smokers need SOMEWHERE we're still acceptable! Of course, with all the recent smoking law changes, I'd probably FORGET I could smoke in Vegas! You are funny tho!

I've never been either, that's why I asked! I can gamble really well - virtually/online - but when actual $$$ is involved, then I'd say I'm OCD. Vegas scares me because of the ACTUAL $$$ I might lose!

On the park maps, are the DSA areas as indicated today or have some moved and maps are old. Will be their in 23 days. Don't really smoke in parks except Epcot but will be at Sosa's many night on our trip. Have become a regular their when home at OKW and have gotten to know the manager and friends from Florida drop in to enjoy and few smokes with me.

Gamblers? Oh, right - gambling's legal in Las Vegas, too. I forgot - I'm so excited at not being ostracized for smoking!!!

You should have heard me when I first found out they banned smoking inside the airport!! They had these little Plexiglas rooms with ventilation... and, oh yeah - those video game thingies where you put in money and sometimes got back money (instead of points like with most video games?). No problem. Well, when I checked in and found out my flight was delayed what turned out to be almost FOUR hours, and said, "No problem, I'll just hang out in the smoking area" and the counter agent told me I couldn't smoke?????? I almost WALKED home

Planning. You're a DISer - certainly you know how to plan? You determine IN ADVANCE how much you can afford to lose - aka entertainment funds - over the entire trip. Say it's $1,000. You divide this by the number of days you'll be there - say five. That's $200 per day.

Then you divide this into gambling 'sessions' - how many times each day do you intend/expect to gamble, realistically? Four? Okay, great. You split your gambling funds into four $50 packets for the day. Once you've gone through the $50, you STOP.

There's more to it than that - grab the Unofficial Guide to Las Vegas (or Casino Gambling for Dummies, and there's NOTHING wrong with the "for Dummies" series, if my brother happens to be reading this ).

You are hysterical, and yet, so real! Thanks!

What do I do after each of my $50 packets are gone each day? I'm border OCD, self-diagnosed, and STOPPING is just NOT part of that.

You are a riot!

Sightsee. Walk up and down the Strip. Have a drink at the Fontana Bar at the Bellagio (drink slowly) out on the patio and watch the fountains. See the free shows in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Later in the day, head a little further up the Strip for the Mirage Volcano.

Head up the Eiffel Tower - AAA discount. See the lions in MGM. Line up around 10 AM one or more days, at/near the Coke bottle, and buy half-price show (and dinner!) tickets from Tix4Tonite. Pick up the "What's On" and (I think) Showtime magazines - may even be one in your hotel room - and use the coupons. There should be one to see Mac King's comedy show at Harrah's 'free' with the purchase of a drink.

People-watch. Stand behind a table and just watch people play. See what casinos offer free lessons in what games and try them. Go to the California downtown and play craps, except Tuesday or Wednesday. Tip well (there's only one craps table) Ask the dealers which one is my brother. Tell him I'm still upset with him, and I'm TAKING the comedy class anyway, but thanks for the advice While you're there, enjoy the Fremont Street Experience.

Yes. There's a different sticky thread here, within a few threads of this one, with .pdf maps of all the resorts WITH the designated smoking areas. While some have changed, Pop's is accurate.
