Open Flame Ban to Be In Effect Throughout Walt Disney World Until Further Notice

Due to the drought conditions currently affecting the Central Florida area, Walt Disney World is asking Guests staying at any of the on-site resorts to refrain from using open flames in most outdoor settings. Here you are additional information:

Any outdoor cooking with charcoal/wood, or other solid fuel is prohibited. These restrictions include the use of Walt Disney World-provided charcoal grills at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and DVC sites, personal fire pits, consumer-grade fireworks (i.e. sparklers), or Guest-owned hibachi-style grills that utilize charcoal, wood, etc.

As a result of these temporary restrictions, the following grills are not available to Guests:
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas, near Kidani sports court – 3 under Pavilion
  • Disney's Bay Lake Tower – 4 at Pavilion by pool
  • Disney's Beach Club Villas – 2 behind the Villas near pool
  • Disney's Boardwalk Villas – 1 outside Community Hall
  • Disney's Old Key West – 2 at Miller’s Road Pool, 4 at Turtle Pond Pool, 3 at Southpoint Pool
  • Disney's Saratoga Springs Treehouses – Each unit has their own grill (60 total)
  • Disney's Saratoga Springs – 2 at Playground at Congress Park Pool, 2 at Fountain at Carousel, 2 Outside Grandstand Pool

  • Gas cooking grills in proper working order that contain fire, heat, and flames are allowed to be used where constantly attended;
  • Campfires that have been permitted through the Fire Prevention Division; this covers all Walt Disney World Recreation Campfire Activities, as well as gas fire pits in common areas such as Coronado Springs, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House, and Bay Lake Tower;
  • Fire torches that are a part of Disney-owned facilities (i.e. Polynesian walkways);
  • Interior fireplaces and commercial kitchens in approved open buildings.
