As previously reported, reusable bags are arriving at the Disney parks, replacing the traditional plastic bags. So far, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios have debuted the new reusable bags.
Disney is committed to reducing its footprint and is dedicated to omitting single-use items in the parks. One of the biggest areas impacted is plastic bags. I can’t even begin to imagine how many plastic bags are used daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly on Disney property. I’m guilty of bringing home and saving as many Disney plastic bags as possible. Why? I don’t know. I just can’t seem to part with them! Are you guilty too?
The reusable bags at Hollywood Studios are available in three sizes. The red and white handy bags feature popular attractions around the park. One side shows off the heart racing Tower of Terror with fireworks in the background. The other side features toy soldiers parachuting in, along with an AT-AT Walker from Star Tours.
If you’re needing to purchase a bag to bring your souvenirs home, they’re reasonably priced.
Small – $ 1.00
Medium – $1.50
Large – $2.00
While some will view it as another way for Disney to make money from its guests, it’s important to Disney to help reduce waste around the parks. I’m a sucker for reusable bags. There’s no such thing as too many reusable bags at my house. These are terrific souvenirs to remember your vacation and have many great ways to re-use them. What’s your favorite way to re-use the bags? Lastly, what else would you like to see Disney change? Silverware, straws, or anything else?
