Before you plan your next Disney trip, you may want to take note of some new rules coming to its theme parks.

Beginning May 1, smoking areas will no longer be present inside Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or Downtown Disney in California.

"Designated smoking areas will be available outside the entrances of the areas listed above and at Disney Springs in Florida. For guests who have room or dining reservations, smoking areas are also available at Disney Resort hotels," Disney Parks said in a press release.

Disney Parks also announced a change to its stroller size guidelines.

Beginning May 1, the park will not allow strollers larger than 31'' wide and 52'' long. Stroller wagons will also no longer be permitted, the park says.

Lastly, starting today, dry ice is no longer permitted in Disney Parks. "We recommend you keep your items frosty with reusable ice packs instead."
