Is LIVE streaming now Banned at Disney Parks?

Update: You do hear a Disney employee saying live streaming is banned & includes facebook live as an example, but she used the word “technically”, which suggests to us that it’s a rule that’s on the books but rarely enforced. Time will tell if this is a fluke situation or the new norm. We’ll be LIVE from Epcot tomorrow (8/2/16) at 7:pm eastern time to see for ourselves (Watch LIVE @ Facebook.com/StreamingDisney ) .

According to well known Disney Periscopers @meettheroyers, they were told during a live broadcast tonight (8/1/16) that they could no longer live stream at Disney.  We’re waiting for their live stream to end so we can view the replay.

We reached out to a full time Disney Park’s security guard that we know to see if he had heard anything about this & he said no.

Check back here for updates as details become available.

    Seems that this would be hard to enforce. How would Cast Members know if someone is live stream vs just recording for a vlog? They certainly aren’t going to run around checking people’s phones to see if it’s a live stream.

    It would be practically impossible for Disney to stop live streaming. I did hear a cast member suggesting that Disney might use a technology called Electromagnetic Pulse (a military technology) to disable all electronic devices. This is of course laughable given the damage it would do to devices, not to mention that it’s a Federal offense to block a cell signal anywhere in the Country (The Communications Act of 1934, as amended (“Act”). See 47 U.S.C. Sections 301, 302a, 333. The Act
    prohibits any person from willfully or maliciously interfering with
    the radio communications of any station licensed or authorized under
    the Act or operated by the U.S. government. 47 U.S.C. Section 333).

    Did the cm say streaming for commercial purposes is what is specifically band? I could have heard wrong.
