RELATEDGuests’ Experiences Suggest Behavior Is Out of Control At Walt Disney World

In Hollywood Studios, whether you’re taking a fall on the Tower of Terror, rocking out on the Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, or springing around on Slinky Dog Dash, personal belongings don’t have to be stored in lockers.

In Animal Kingdom, Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain also allows Guests to bring loose articles onto the attraction. While Flight of Passage requires loose articles to be stowed away, the compartments are in the same room as the ride vehicles.

However, in Magic Kingdom, some changes have been made to the loose article policy.

In early December, Guests spotted something new while waiting for Tomorrowland’s Space Mountain: a sign alerting Guests that phones and cameras must be secured while riding. A few weeks later, the same policy was implemented in Frontierland’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

At the time, Guests thought it was because more smartphones were getting lost recently, but now it may be because of overall policy changes.

As Magic Kingdom prepares to debut TRON Lightcycle Run, a report has revealed that the thrill ride will require Guests to stow belongings in a locker. Although nearby theme parks have been requiring lockers for their thrill rides for years, this is entirely new territory for Walt Disney World.

Right now, we don’t know whether these lockers will be complementary or available at an extra charge (despite being mandatory). We also don’t know if Disney will implement a virtual queue system for these lockers or if they’ll be first come, first served.
