Disney World has four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and is also home to two water parks and the Disney Springs shopping and dining district.

Disney World is now under a major policy change, which is an open flame ban. Disney is asking Guests not to use any open flames in outdoor settings like sparklers, firepits, and solid-fuel grills are prohibited. The grill ban includes Disney-provided facilities at its resort hotels and campground. This ban should not affect Disney Parks. If this drought worsens, however, Disney Parks may see changes such as suspending fireworks at its nighttime spectaculars during periods.

Walt Disney World Resort does its best at trying to keep our planet clean. Disney World does not sell balloons inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom in an effort to keep wildlife safe from harmful items. In 2004, Disney developed a patented system with a smokeless launcher. This helps keep the air clean during the fireworks shows.

The Disney location that will see the most significant change due to this ban will be Dinsey’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Disney’ Fort Wilderness allows Guests to camp amid the magic of the great outdoors. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground evokes the timeless beauty of the American frontier, with deer, rabbits, ducks, and armadillos roaming the Resort’s 750 acres of pine and cypress forest. Discover charming woodland trails, spectacular pool areas, and rip-roarin’ entertainment at this picturesque backcountry retreat.
