Last March, Disney Parks announced that all in-park smoking areas at Walt Disney World and Disneyland were to be phased out, to be replaced by designated smoking areas outside of park entrances. Now, Disneyland Resort has announced in a memo to its Cast Members that all backstage areas are to become fully smoke-free, in order to allow for further physical distancing throughout the property. This new policy also includes off-site locations. You can read the full announcement below:
Cast Members in search of health coaches or resources to go smoke-free can access the “Be Well… Be Smoke Free” program and other smoking cessation resources via the Cast Member Hub.
At this time, Disneyland Resort remains closed, with just select restaurants and retailers open at Downtown Disney District. No new reopening date has been announced.
