Disney live streamers have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many content creators choosing to broadcast their Disney experiences in real-time. These live streamers offer viewers a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the magic of Disney parks from the comfort of their own homes. By tuning into these live streams, fans can enjoy virtual tours of Disney World, Disneyland Resort, and other Disney park locations, allowing them to stay connected to the magic of Disney regardless of their physical location.

While thousands of viewers appreciate their live streams, they are not so adored by Disney Parks and cast members. While this practice has been banned for some time, Disney cast members are just now sending out clear warnings to guests participating in this practice.

The End of Disney Live Streams?

If you have visited the Disney theme parks recently, chances are you may have seen a Disney live streamer. Disney live streamers often provide insightful commentary and share tips and tricks for navigating the parks. These influencers interact with their audience in real-time, creating a sense of community among Disney enthusiasts worldwide. Watching these live streams can be a fun and informative way to learn about the latest attractions, entertainment offerings, and special events happening at Disney parks.

However, the presence of live streamers is not so magical for other guests in the parks. By holding up tri-pods on rides, taking nonconsensual videos of guests and children, and speaking loudly in lines, streamers can be the bane of many guests’ experiences. While Disney does not allow commercial streamers on the property, it can often be hard to catch these people in the act.

Disney previously banned selfie sticks inside the parks as well as large tripods, but many of the smaller handheld devices still make it through. The rules state:

Selfie sticks, hand-held extension poles for cameras or mobile devices, flags and banners are not allowed in any theme park or water park.
Tripods or monopod stands that cannot fit inside a standard backpack or that extend over 6’ (182 cm) are not allowed in theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

With these rules in effect, it now seems that certain cast members are working to end the practice.

Guest Receives Warning

One guest recently shared a harsh message that they received from one employee on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland Resort. The message was given to them after they were caught live streaming on the attraction. This guest shared a photo of the sign along with this message:

“I Was handed this as I got off the Jungle Cruise by one of the Skippers

Was Live Streaming the park and was handed this as I exited the Jungle Cruise, made my Day for sure”

It seems that the message was written on a plastic bag meant for guests to store their phones in on attractions. While the guest seemed to have a good attitude, many others were incredibly critical of the poster’s decision to stream in the first place.

As time goes on, it will be very interesting to see if Disney cast members continue to send out warnings to guests participating in this controversial practice.
