Starting this Tuesday, WDW will ban all selfie-sticks in WDW theme parks and water parks.
Spokeswoman Kim Prunty told the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1LtRuBz ) selfie-sticks have become a "growing safety concern for both our guests and cast."
Selfie sticks will also be banned at Disneyland Resort in California on Tuesday and at Disney's parks in Paris and Hong Kong starting July 1.
I find the selfie-sticks to be not only annoying, but also a safety hazard. It sticks far out, and can easily hit another guest, especially when the park is busy. And having it on rides is CRAZY! It reaches out farther than your arms and one can easily hit the attraction during the ride.
