Are you allowed to bring monopods into the parks? I have a small one it folds down to about 9".

Thanks

that's a darn interesting question. but first, i'm curious, how far does it extend?

there's a lengthy (and fairly recent) discussion on here regarding the tripod policy and the bottom line is that even though they're supposedly okay as long as the tripod is under 12" collapsed, there's still confusion at the gate, so it's probably advocated that you email disney directly about their policy and print out their response to bring with you. of course the worst case is they say no at the gates, but i think once you get it in the park, you'll be fine.

Thanks for the answer. My monopod opens to about 5'5" but it folds pretty small

I have taken my monopod into the park many times. When it is as small as it can be it is about 13-14 inches. FOr the most part I place it on the table while they look thru my stuff - so they see it everytime and there has never been a problem.
