Selfie Sticks banned at Disneyland Paris.

From today (1 July 2015) Selfie Sticks are now banned in Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris.

Disneyland Paris now joins Disneyland and Walt Disney World where the ban on selfie sticks commenced on Tuesday and Hong Kong Disneyland which joined Paris in banning them today.

A spokeswoman from TWDC told the BBC “Handheld extension poles have been a growing safety concern for both our Guests and Cast Members”.

The ban by The Walt Disney Company comes after the roller coaster California Screamin at the Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim was brought to an emergency stop last week after a Guest attempted to use a selfie stick while the ride was in operation.
