Make the kingdom a little more magical with cannabis edibles
As amusement parks are concerned, there are few more well-known and well-loved than Disneyland. And if you’re looking to make your grown-up experience of the park a little more memorable, edibles can enhance your fun.
Getting stoned in Disneyland isn’t a new phenomenon. In fact, celebrities have even gotten in on the fun, with reports of Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield having the time of their lives with weed at Disneyland, as well as Robert Downey, Jr.
However, there are a few things to know about consuming cannabis in Disneyland. You can get busted by the park’s authorities, along with other “problems” that can occur, like getting too high before climbing aboard a rollercoaster.
A Zero-Tolerance Policy for Getting Stoned in Disneyland
To put it simply, weed just isn’t allowed in Disneyland, in any form. After marijuana was legalized in the state of California, Disneyland updated its rules and regulations. They’ve stipulated that the park will not abide by marijuana use within its boundaries, no exceptions.
If you disregard the rules and park security catches you, expect to pay a hefty fine. You might even spend a stint in Disney jail. And if you’re under the legal age for consumption, possibly real jail. You could also be thrown out of the park and banned from re-entry. That being said, if you can’t resist the lure of getting stoned in Disneyland, edibles might be the perfect way to fly under the radar.
Edibles and Rides: What You Should Know
There isn’t much information to be found online about the effects of edibles while riding tea-cups and rollercoasters. But multiple forums detailing the personal experiences of Disneyland enthusiasts could provide a loose guide to follow.
According to some, security at Disneyland has been known to use trained dogs to sniff out your stash. So to be extra safe, it’s probably a good idea to eat your edibles before you enter park boundaries. However, you’ll want to be careful about dosing. Start with a small amount to find out how edibles and Disneyland’s rides affect your body. Take them with a meal to ensure you get the most out of your weed treats. Getting too high could cause a miserable experience, so it’s important to start out slow. Sure, upping your dose might require a quick trip outside the park. But that’s a whole lot better than getting busted by Disney officials.
If you typically get the munchies after consuming cannabis, you’ll also want to be sure to bring along extra cash for food. If you’re unsure of how much food costs in Disneyland (spoiler: its expensive), there are sites where you can peruse menus and budget your meals before you go.
What Can Happen if You Get Too Stoned in Disneyland
There aren’t many reports from folks getting too stoned in the magical kingdom. However, edibles have commonly caused problems when over-consumed. Add in a heart-pumping, exhilarating ride, and you could have a recipe for disaster.
As documented by one anonymous user on reddit, getting too high on edibles can be a nightmare of an experience. You might find it harder to blend in or act normal. There are various strategies published online, like starting out with Disneyland’s more mellow rides, including this guide on what to pack with you to make your experience safe and enjoyable.

A Recap: The Dos and Don’ts of Getting Stoned in Disneyland
If you want to have the best experience possible and avoid Disney jail, just remember to follow these simple tips:
- Consider taking your edibles outside park boundaries to avoid detection from Disneyland security.
- Start off slow to find out how your high will affect you while enjoying Disneyland’s rides. Everyone is different, and no one wants to see you vomit on Space Mountain.
- Plan for extra treats throughout the day in case you loose your buzz. Just be aware that you might want to leave park boundaries to pop that second (or third) edible.
- Take your edibles with a meal to ensure you get the most out of your cannabis. Ingesting them with foods that are high in fat will give you the most bang for your buck.
- Keep some extra cash in your wallet in case you get the munchies.
- If Disneyland’s more exhilarating rides prove to be too much for you while stoned, consider the park’s mellower options to relax.
