Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are renowned for their magical experiences and unforgettable moments. However, one aspect that often dampens the Disney experience is the long lines that accompany many of the Park’s popular attractions. Whether you’re visiting the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disneyland Park, or Disney California Adventure Park, waiting in line is an inevitable part of the theme park experience.

While some strategies and add-ons can be used to help expedite the line-waiting process, the truth of the matter is that most fans will end up waiting for the full extent of the ride’s line. To help alleviate some of the physical pains that come along with this, Guests have discovered a very clever line “hack.”

Wait Without the Pain With This New Hack!

Some clever fans on social media have begun sharing with fellow fans the concept of bringing a portable stool with them to sit on while waiting in line for rides. These stools are usually very lightweight and compact, making them an easy addition to your Park bag. For those of us who suffer from bad backs, knees, and hips, a portable seating option like this could be a game-changer for those long attraction lines.

However, it seems that this hack may be too good to be true.

Some Guests in the comment section of this video have concluded possible reasons as to why these stools are banned. Reasons cited could be fire codes or possibly Disney trying to increase the sale of their Genie+ and Lightning Lane services.

Whatever the reason may be, you may want to reconsider investing in one of these stools before your next trip.

  1. Oh come on people, it’s most definitely and certainly NOT about selling more G+ and/LL passes!! Good grief!!! This rule existed a long, long time, as in many years, before either of those things did.
    I strongly suspect it has to due with fire control, crowd control, access to areas, etc. Common sense would tell us that having numbers if people park themselves in random areas would be a VERY bad and dangerous idea! Think about it!!! I mean really?! Geez.
