Disneyland is not just a theme park; it is a magical realm where dreams come true, where the young and young at heart can escape the ordinary and enter a world of enchantment.

Walt Disney, the visionary behind Disneyland, envisioned a place where families could spend quality time together, where adults could relive their childhood memories, and where children could let their imaginations run wild. He wanted to create a place that was different from traditional amusement parks, one that told stories and transported Disneyland Resort guests to different worlds.

Disneyland Resort is known as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” and many guests would agree Disneyland is a magical place. Disneyland is home to two theme parks: Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Each Disney park includes different attractions, shows, dining options, and more.

Disneyland Park is home to the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle. Disney guests can spot Sleeping Beauty Castle after strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. Disneyland Park is also home to “it’s a small world,” Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and many more attractions.

Next door at Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland guests can visit different lands such as Cars Land, Avengers Campus, Grizzly Peak, and Pixar Pier. Disney California Adventure Park includes thrilling attractions such as Radiator Springs Racers, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, The Incredicoaster, Soarin’ Around the World, Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, Jesse’s Critter Carousel, Grizzly River Run, and many more attractions.

In a social media post, guests have noticed a new sign beside a popular thrill attraction. The Incredicoaster is a high-speed roller coaster is part of the Pixar Pier section of the park, and it’s a must-visit attraction for thrill-seekers and fans of The Incredibles film franchise. This attraction goes from 0 to 55 mph in a matter of seconds. The new rules that Disney has in place are about guests putting away items or placing them in the proper spot.

This new ban is for guests’ safety, as many have been seen attempting to film themselves on the ride and much more. Other Disney guests talk about how other Disney attractions should use this rule. Depending on the circumstance, a Disney attraction may have to close when loose items fall onto the track, and newer attractions use the floor as its track, causing the attractions to stop for extended periods of time.

Over at Disney’s biggest competitor, Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, the rules differ from Disney World and Disneyland. Universal tends to enforce the rules harder than Disney. This means that Disney guests can wear hats, ears, and other items at attractions when Universal Studios tells guests to remove loose items.

“They should have them on all the roller coasters and thrill rides. Especially Indy, Rise, Radiator Springs, and Runaway Railway, since those four rides are especially prone to loose item delays since the entire floor is “track” and if anything falls anywhere the whole ride stops.

Universal is especially good (even on the rides where bags are permitted) about making sure all hats come off, and I think Disney should also strictly enforce this. It keeps riders safe and keeps the rides open. I know filming is a little harder to enforce (especially since Disney still likely wants to allow people to film with secured cameras), but definitely at least the hats and ears,” one guest shared.

Do you think Disney is moving towards Universal rules?
