"No selfie sticks" signs appearing in Disney theme parks

Posted Wednesday, May 20, 2015 11:04 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Walt Disney World is just the latest venue taking a hard-line stance against the tourist tool: Signs are going up at various rides across the parks reinforcing the park-wide policy against selfie sticks, which pose a threat to rider safety as they extend beyond the safe borders of the ride's enclosures.

That sucks. I wanted to take a selfie with my cinder block at the park.

Selfie sticks are so 2015.

I'm bringing my selfie drone.

And yes, I know every single one of you reading this is considering how well it would do at following you around and filming on a coaster.

Can you imagine if the Lily became so popular that 50 of them followed a train full of coaster enthusiasts throughout their epic coaster rides during a coaster event? Would that even be possible?

Having it follow a family around the park throughout the day would make an awesome souvenir, although I don't think I would want to visit a park in which those things littered the sky all day.

So, I predict that Lili will be banned from amusement parks as well, if they become popular enough.

Oh, and selfie sticks are stupid.

Oh, God, please don't let it get to where I need to record every single thing I do.

I gotta say, that Lili camera does look pretty cool. But yeah, I don't need video of everything I do.

Too many people confuse ability with need.

And ability often leads to a need.

Less often than many people think.

If Gonch gets to bring his selfie drone, then I should be allowed to ride my Segway drone in the park.

Found this on The Daily What today, about a selfie stick sing-a-long going horribly wrong. Warning: Language near the end.

That by itself could be a PSA. Not necessarily an anti-selfie stick PSA, but an anti-stupidity one.

I believe drones are already banned from parks, at least Cedar Fair has a specific no drone policy I believe.

I remember reading somewhere that Animal Kingdom didn't like it when people flew drones over their new AvatarLand construction and over their old waterpark. It was probably here on CoasterBuzz.
