Disney banned ice cubes last March 2019 as part of their project to manage crowds better and streamline bag checks at security areas. Ice cubes being banned from the park is likely thanks to a 2013 dry-ice bomb. Dry-ice bombs can explode and shoot shards of dry ice or pieces of the container, which can cause harm and injury. Even though ice cubes and dry ice are banned from the theme park, visitors can still bring ice packs for coolers, and cups of ice are free of charge at quick-service restaurants. It’s better to be safe than sorry after all!
