Guests Asked to Refrain from Using Charcoal Grills at Walt Disney World Until Further Notice

Due to the drought-like 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.

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 most 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.
