Medical Marijuana & CBD at Disney and Other Theme Parks

Updated: Jul 11, 2023

Due to the pandemic, Disney and other popular theme parks have been shut down temporarily to avoid the spread of the virus. After a four-month shutdown, Disney World in Orlando, Florida recently reopened its doors to visitors. Disney theme parks and resorts are popular attractions to millions of people worldwide, but medical marijuana patients may not be aware of Disney’s policies on medical marijuana and CBD use on its properties.

Forty years ago, Disney set a rule that any cannabis or CBD use is prohibited at any of its theme parks, resorts/hotels, or other properties. If you are found with any type of product containing cannabis or CBD, even if it is for medical use, it is prohibited. Though medical cannabis use is prohibited at Disney properties, visitors are still allowed to bring any other time of prescription medication onto the grounds.

There are some theme parks such as Seaworld, which allow visitors to bring CBD for medical use. If you are found with legal medical cannabis or CBD products at Disney, you are not only refused admission, but you could even face legal prosecution.

If you are a patient who suffers from localized pain such as joint or muscle pain, you may consider applying topicals such as pain patches or THC infused lotions or salves, which will provide you with relief throughout the entire day! These methods are popular because they are discrete and can be applied underneath clothing, similar to other non-THC infused pain patches purchased from commercial drug stores.

Another option is medicating prior to visiting the park to ensure you are pain-free during your visit. Whether you are a medical marijuana patient or a frequent CBD user, we suggest reviewing the policies and rules regarding medical cannabis use and what is allowed inside the parks before your next visit to avoid any legal discrepancies.


If you are a qualifying patient who is suffering from one of the qualifying conditions and is seeking medical marijuana treatment, schedule a telemedicine evaluation, and gain access to Ohio dispensaries. You can schedule your appointment by calling us at 866-457-5559 or book your appointment online.
