ORLANDO, Fla. (TheBlaze/AP) -- Disney World is looking to crack down on guests who use selfie sticks on rides at the park.

Disney policy forbids visitors from using the sticks, which can be used to extend cameras out up to 3 feet. One ride, Thunder Mountain Railroad, has had a number of incidents in which the ride had to be stopped because of selfie-stick use.

A Disney spokesman told the Orlando Sentinel that guests may bring the devices on rides, but must store them securely.

The park instructed employees a few weeks ago to remind guests not to take out their selfie sticks on rides but stopped short of making the rule official. On Friday, Disney World workers posted a "No Selfie Sticks" sign at Thunder Mountain Railroad.

A representative for Disney told the Sentinel that the new rule is "just a continuation of our communication efforts at a few key attractions."

The Sentinel reported that similar restrictions have gone into effect at some of the same attractions at Disneyland in California. A Disneyland spokeswoman told the Orange County Register that the park treats selfie sticks just as it does any other personal belongings on rides.

Guests are still welcome to use selfie sticks elsewhere in the park; the Register reported that the devices can even be purchased at the Happiest Place on Earth.
