California has tough smoking restrictions and Disneyland is even tougher. Both smoking and vaping (using e-cigarettes) are prohibited even in outdoor areas except for designated smoking areas, which are getting scarcer every year.
Designated Smoking/Vaping Areas:
- Main Entry Plaza outside both theme parks
Disneyland Smoking Areas:
- Frontierland (near New Orleans Square), next to the Rivers of America Raft Dock
- Tomorrowland, near the Tomorrowland Train Station
Disney's California Adventure Smoking Area:
- Hollywood Land, near the water tower next to Monsters Inc.
Downtown Disney District:
Smoking is prohibited inside stores, dining areas and restrooms.
Smoke less.You might consider carrying some nicotine gum so you can spend more time with your group enjoying the rides and less time escaping to designated smoking areas.
Ashtrays are available in smoking areas and are built into the top of trash cans in Downtown Disney. Depositing cigarette butts anywhere else may invoke the wrath of cast members/park staff wandering around with brooms and dustpans.
Buying Cigarettes. Pack your smokes with you because you can't get them anywhere in the Disneyland parks and may pay more than you expect for a pack in a hotel vending machine.
Smoking at Disneyland Hotels
The three Disneyland Resort hotels, the Paradise Pier Hotel, the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian are smoke free hotels.
They do not offer any smoking rooms, but they have designated outdoor smoking areas.
The Disneyland Hotel has three, one each outside the Fantasy, Adventure and Frontier Towers.
Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has one at the outdoor fireplace and another in the Brisa Courtyard.
The Paradise Pier has only one at the hotel entrance.
Many other hotels in the area are also smoke free, meaning no smoking anywhere in the hotel rooms or common areas, so be sure to check when making reservations.
