"No Selfie Sticks" Signs Begin To Show Up At WDW

You KNOW that this was bound to happen sooner or later.

Our last trip to WDW this past December was an eye-opener because I had never seen so many selfie sticks being used all through the parks. People were either filming themselves while walking around the parks, or on rides. Holy cow, this thing could be dangerous especially in a crowded area!

Sure enough, Disney is beginning to crack down on selfie sticks. It starts with Thunder Mountain Railroad.

So on Friday, Walt Disney World went a step further to make that point. It posted a "No Selfie Sticks" sign at the Magic Kingdom's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

A few weeks ago, Disney told workers to remind guests of that policy.

Still, Thunder Mountain has had an especially high number of incidents in which the ride had to be stopped because of selfie-stick use.

Similar signs have been posted at Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland in California.

It'll require just a few guests being poked by this darn thing in a crowded area before I see a ban on this nuisance.
