Walt Disney World Officially Bans Plastic Straws at All Parks

Disney is going GREEN! First, it was reusable shopping bags for purchase as an alternative to plastic waste. Then it was leaving plastic lids off cups in the parks to reduce waste. Now it seems that across all parks they have banned plastic straws for a paper version!

Doctor Disney is reporting “As of April 21, 2019, plastic straws are officially banned around Walt Disney World. Cast Members have confirmed that it is a change being made resort-wide and that includes theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and resort hotels.”

We noticed that today Magic Kingdom has paper straws at locations that say “earth day” on them and that there are still a couple of quick service locations with plastic straws. We can only assume this is just them using stock up until it runs out. They now sell plastic re-usable straws at many stores throughout all of the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. You can also bring your own to help do your part in saving the environment.

  1. Maybe they can have the refillable mug stations in the parks, too. That would cut down on the cups used. No straw needed and already has a cover. Bet they would sell more if they were available to all. MORE MONEY.
