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

The Orlando Sentinel reports a spokesman said Monday guests can bring selfie sticks on the rides but must securely store them.

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

On Friday, Disney World workers posted a "No Selfie Sticks" sign at the Magic Kingdom's Thunder Mountain Railroad.
