I don't recall ever seeing anybody using them but I sure am glad they can't now

I think they are wrongly named, shouldn't they be called selfish sticks?

In the last few hours, I've read several news reports stating that WDW is officially banning selfie sticks from the park very soon. I must say that I think this is still in the rumor category although it does seem that this rumor will be confirmed soon, if it hasn't already, by Disney. I included a link from wdwnt.com that says Disney has confirmed that the sticks will be banned from the parks completely starting June 30.

Please oh please let this rumor be true! I got clotheslined by a selfie stick when we were there in May. I had a bruise on my neck for a few weeks. I will be thrilled if they get rid of these!!!

Yeah, I heard the same thing from Attractions Magazine, as well. I consider Attractions Magazine to be a more reputable source but that's just me.

Anyway, it was overdue in my book and I'm glad those selfish sticks are a thing of the past. I also read an article that over at California Adventure, a selfie stick stopped the California Screamin' ride. Fortunately, no one was hurt but that incident may have been the last straw. So far, Disneyland in California hasn't said anything regarding a possible permanent selfie stick ban but I wouldn't be surprised if they followed in Disney World's footsteps.
