Disney Bans Selfie Sticks on Rides – for the Obvious Reasons

New signs are being put into place at certain rides in both Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim that ban the popular “selfie stick.”

People have been complaining and the company is listening. It has become an issue in recent years and social media is filled with images of people using the devices on rides, including high speed roller-coasters.

Use of selfie-sticks on a ride is dangerous, and it is rude to those around you trying to enjoy it.

Universal Studios Orlando has gone a step further, installing metal detectors at three of the most thrilling rides to ensure there are no loose objects at all, including selfie sticks. Thunder Mountain has had an especially high number of incidents in which the ride had to be stopped because of selfie-stick use.

This sign was posted at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in the Magic Kingdom.


Recently, the hashtag #BanSelfieSticks has grown in popularity.
