Walt Disney World Removes Smoking Section at United Kingdom Pavilion

We have bad news for all of you smokers out there. Another smoking section at Walt Disney World has been closed.  The smoking section that was located at the United Kingdom pavilion within Epcot’s World Showcase officially closed on February 16th, 2018.  The only smoking locations left in the World Showcase area is the area located between the Norway pavilion and the China pavilion, the Italy pavilion and between the Morocco pavilion and the Japan pavilion.  There are also locations in the Future World area found between Innoventions East and the Mission: SPACE attraction as well as between Innoventions West and The Land pavilion.


Disney has been doing away with some of the smoking locations around all of the theme parks over the last couple years, causing a decrease in the overall number of smoking locations.  Disney also requires that guests who are using the vapor cigarette alternatives also use the smoking location.  Vaping isn’t allowed openly throughout the theme parks or other areas around Walt Disney World, and it is treated the exact same as smoking actual cigarettes.

As a non-smoker this change doesn’t bother me, but what do you think of the change to the smoking locations at Walt Disney World?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
