Disneyland Paris to ban selfie sticks on rides.


@InsideDLParis are reporting that from July 2015, Disneyland Paris will no longer allow the use of selfie sticks inside attractions and on rides at Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios.

If this ban goes ahead and is enforced, Disneyland Paris will be joining a range of other venues who have banned the use of selfie sticks which can be used to extend cameras for up to 3 feet  away from the user.

In the United Kingdom selfie sticks are banned  from the London O2 arena and the National Gallery.  Elsewhere in Europe The Palace of Versailles and Rome’s Colosseum have also banned the use of selfie sticks on safety considerations.

At Chessington World of Adventures, Alton Towers and the nearby Drayton Manor theme parks in the United Kingdom, selfie sticks are also banned on rides.

In the USA Disney policy forbids visitors from using the sticks on its rides at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  A “No Selfie Sticks” sign has appeared at the Magic Kingdom’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and similar signs have been posted at Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland in California.
