Walt Disney World Phasing Out Complimentary Plastic Bags at the Theme Parks

Walt Disney World Phasing Out Complimentary Plastic Bags at the Theme Parks. In 2019 Disney introduced reusable shopping bags at stores around the Walt Disney World Resort, with the thought that plastic bags would be phased out over the next few years. Now is the time for Disney to end bagging your merchandise for free.

Over the next few months, it seems Disney will end giving out bags for free. They will be going to reusable shopping bags exclusively—the reusable bags costs on average $1.50 to $3.50.

Disney has also expanded Mobile Checkout to make your shopping a bit faster.
