Updated: Feb 8, 2022

Here is the breakdown for rules regarding smoking, and use of marijuana, for theme park resorts. Jump to theme parks based in: California, Florida, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Virginia.


California Based Theme Parks


Disneyland Resort

As of May 1, 2019, smoking and vaping are not permitted in Disneyland Resort property. This includes Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure, the Esplanade between the two parks, Downtown Disney District, and the Disneyland Resort hotels. For those in your party who smoke, this can be challenging since they have to go all the way to Harbor Blvd or the parking lots to smoke. Additionally, marijuana is not permitted within the resort.





Universal Studios Hollywood Resort

At this time, the park's designated smoking area is closed and all tobacco smoking, electronic cigarettes, and vaporizers are not permitted in the park. No date for when the smoking areas will reopen has been given. Additionally, marijuana is not permitted with the park.
