Disneyland and Disney World have banned selfie sticks from their parks, citing safety concerns as the reason for the new rule.

"We strive to provide a great experience for the entire family, and unfortunately selfie sticks have become a growing safety concern for both our guests and cast," Disney World spokeswoman Kim Prunty told the Orlando Sentinel.

The Disney theme parks had already banned the long sticks, used to hold a cell phone away from the person to take a photo, from rides earlier this year, although park visitors didn’t always follow those rules.

The Orange County Register reported that a ride at Disney California Adventures Park was shut down just last week when a passenger attempted to take a photo using a selfie stick during the ride. Several rides in the past few months have been shut down for the same reason.

"We just got emergency evacuated from California Screamin this is so scary," the Sentinel quoted one person who tweeted about the stopped ride.

USA Today pointed out that Disney was joining a long list of attractions and organizations banning selfie sticks, including New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, all the Smithsonian museums and galleries, and the Kentucky Derby.

Many on social media sites welcomed the ban, which extends to all Disney parks worldwide:
