Ever since Disney announced their intentions to completely eliminate the use of single-use plastic straws and stirrers globally by mid-2019, they’ve been making strides across all Disney Parks to transition dining locations to paper straws. They’re already at Disneyland and at Walt Disney World Joffrey’s locations (not to mention they’ve been at Disney’s Animal Kingdom forever) and now they’ve made it across the pond to Disneyland Paris.
Disneyland Paris news source ED92 took to Twitter with photos of the newly rolled out paper straws. It’s interesting to note that they still have plastic lids there.

Disney’s new policy will reduce plastic straw use globally by 175 million and plastic stirrer use by 13 million.
They also plan on eliminating or reducing other single-use plastic products in the coming years. These products include plastic shopping bags and transitioning to refillable in-room products.
