As the Happiest Place On Earth prepares for the opening Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, there are some pretty big changes happening in the park to make room for the large crowds that are expected, including Disneyland’s new stroller policy.

Disney Parks has just announced that it will begin restricting the size of strollers that are allowed in the theme park. Starting May 1, strollers entering the park will not allowed to be more than 31 inches wide and 52 inches long. The park currently allows strollers as wide as 36 inches. Essentially, the size requirements are most likely to affect double strollers allowed in the park.

In addition to the stroller size cap, the park will also ban stroller wagons that have become a popular way to cart kids and belongings around the park. Strollers will be measured outside of the security lines to ensure that they meet the new standard. If they’re too big, they won’t be allowed in, but guests can rent size-compliant strollers from the park for $15 a day.

Get ready to breathe easy with another major change, as announced by Disney Parks: Disneyland will officially become smoke-free as the park will remove all designated smoking areas that it currently has in four locations across the resort, including California Adventure and Downtown Disney.

Disney Park also announced that the parking expansion that will increase the capacity by 50 percent, adding 6,500 spaces in a new structure is set to be completed between June and July.
