Disney has banned dry ice at its California and Florida theme parks ahead of the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and years after dry-ice bomb explosions in Disneyland resulted in the arrest of a former employee.

The new ban on dry ice and loose ice cubes at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World theme parks begins today, March 28, according to officials.

The new ice policies are part of a Disneyland initiative dubbed Project Stardust, which seeks to relieve pedestrian pinch points throughout the park ahead of the massive crowds that are expected to descend on Galaxy's Edge starting May 31.

Project Stardust - a mash-up of Star Wars and pixie dust - takes a comprehensive park-wide look at operations, infrastructure and crowd management with an eye toward improving efficiency, traffic flow and access.

The new ice policies are intended to help streamline bag checks at security areas, Disneyland officials said.

Theme park visitors who bring coolers or cooler bags to store snacks and drinks will need to use reusable ice packs. Cups of ice cubes will be available at quick-service restaurants in the parks.

Coolers larger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide by 18 inches high are not allowed in the theme parks, according to the Disneyland website. Visitors can store larger coolers in rental lockers outside the main gate.

A former Disneyland employee pleaded guilty in 2013 to setting off two dry-ice bombs near Mickey's Toontown, according to reports at the time. Two water bottles filled with dry ice exploded in a vending cart and trash can. The blasts did not injure anyone or cause significant damage.

Disneyland officials said the new ice policies were not related to the 2013 incident.
