Default *So* tired of rule-breaking smokers

I can only assume that Disney does not in fact charge people $250 for smoking in their rooms/on patios, from all the smokers we have seen on this trip. We have called/notified the front desk at least once every single day for the past 16 days. One lady two days on a row!!

Nevermind all the "sneaky" smokers in the parks. I'm so over it, I'm about to start shouting FIRE every time I see one.

It's one thing if those people want to ruin their own health, but there are LOTS of people at the parks and the resorts who shouldn't have to be exposed to it, especially in non-smoking areas.. and especially all of the very young children!!! Kids are everywhere!! This is one thing Disney should absolutely enforce!!

You must just be unlucky. I honestly didn't see any rule breaking smokers last week. The only time I saw smoking at all was when I wandered into a smoking area.


Could you see all these from your room?

Occasionally we will experience a person sneaking a smoke out on their balcony while we are trying to enjoy our balcony. Honestly, just nicely asking them to stop has had good results with them immediately stopping, and going inside their room. I'm not a smoker, but I'm thinking they are just trying to grab a few puffs without having to trudge down to the smoking area.

The magic word is “super-soaker”.

Same here. Nothing from the balcony at all. mrs. brp was sitting on a curb in Epcot waiting for me. She indicated that she'd had to move from another area because of smokers. Sure enough - designated smoking area...the only place we saw people doing it all trip.

Cheers.

Well, we all will. But at least the non-smokers are less likely to be hacking and coughing as they go...

Cheers.

You should see Disneyland Paris. People smoking in walkways. People carrying a burning cigarette at child level with their kids right behind them. Cast members smoking. And we saw a woman, sitting in a child's stroller, you guessed it, smoking a cigarette. WDW and DLR are non-smoking paradises by comparison. Especially since Disneyland got rid of the smoking area right next to the Matterhorn line.

Same here, Although my best friend is a chain smoker, and while in HHI, there was a couple times she tried to sneak a smoke on the balcony instead of the smoking area. I hate the smell of smoke, so, I told her she had to go to smoking area or we would not vacation together again....
