Waypoints Located inside an Amusement Park Ride

Good day friends, I am new to the forums, so please bear with me!

I was looking to get clarification on the eligibility for future POI located within Amusement Park attractions.

Can waypoints be eligible if it is located within a ride?

I know Niantic does an AMA monthly; how do I ask this question for clarification?

For y'all, ill ask here and give some context. On my recent trip to Disney World I submitted some waypoints that were located within rides in Magic Kingdom, Hollywood studios etc. There are many POI located in rides already, which ill attach images and link below:


There are already many new and old POI locations in these rides. However, I submitted some, and I'm batting around a 50% success rate, the rest being rejected for pedestrian access. Id like to get clarification from the community and Niantic on this. While I understand why some may put "pedestrian access," id argue that if you are in an amusement park, you're paying entry; the main goal of being there is to go on these rides and experience them.

Should nominations within rides such as Haunted Mansion, Rise of the Resistance, and Splash Mountain (for example) be rejected?

    hello & welcome @Max1468-PGO

    You are supposed to be able to walk up to an object and safely touch it with the caveat that you don’t have to touch it if it’s up high. So it’s not enough for example to look across a road at something. I would have thought that applying that logic means if you are on a moving ride train you can’t have that kind of interaction.

    @Max1468-PGO We really can't help unless we see screenshots of the nominations. We need to see all parts of the nomination, including the rejection reasons.
