BREAKING: Disneyland Resort Pulling Plastic Straws, Lids, Bags Effective This Week

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

In an effort to curb single-use plastic usage across the property, the Disneyland Resort is removing the open availability of plastic straws and lids for cold beverages, and plastic shopping bags for merchandise starting this week.

Straws and bags will be made available by request, while guests with disabilities that require lids will be offered alternative options as necessary. This is part of the resort’s efforts to reduce plastic use, including decreasing plastic use in resort hotel rooms by 80%, and eliminating polystyrene cups and plastic stirrers for hot drinks.

Disney Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek said in a statement, “Eliminating plastic straws and other plastic items are meaningful steps in our long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship. These new global efforts help reduce our environmental footprint, and advance our long-term sustainability goals.”
