Tokyo Disneyland has a bit of a reputation for being strict when it comes to photography (among being strict with rules for just about everything), but they are also known for having the most well-behaved guests in the world. While this may come as a culture shock to some who live and die behind the screen of their smartphone or camera, it is common to see cast members kindly ask guests to put down their devices.

They continue to crack down on this, with evidence from the latest restriction popping up. There is a photo spot consisting of a group of boxes in Mickey’s Toontown. This has become a very popular spot to take photos for social media (are you having purple wall at Walt Disney World flashbacks right now?). However, due to the fact that many guests were climbing on top of the unstable boxes, this area has now been fenced off.

As My Game News Flash reports, photos such as the ones above which have been circulating Instagram, lead to the area being closed.

As Twitter User @feali_safuli points out, it was very clear from the beginning that the boxes were not meant to support adults climbing on top of them. They rather are meant to be opened by guests, after which they emit some comical noise. These boxes can also be found at Disneyland in Anaheim, but they have not become a social media craze there.

I know that many of us who frequent the parks in America would enjoy seeing this kind of enforcement of rules over in the States. What are your thoughts? Is it all fun and games or is it time to lay down the rules on this kind of behavior?
