Splash Mountain to Begin Ziploc Bag Distribution Soon at Walt Disney World

We previously announced that Ziploc is now the new sponsor for Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World.  Guests tend to get a little bit wet on this popular attraction within Magic Kingdom Park.  As part of the sponsorship from Ziploc, there will soon be Ziploc bags that are distributed to guests before boarding the attraction.  Guests will be able to use the bags to protect their cell phone or other belongings.  The Ziploc bag distribution was originally expected to begin in August, but Disney decided not to roll it out at the same time that announcements were being made about reducing plastic waste at Walt Disney World.

For guests that don’t want to use a Ziploc bag after leaving the attraction, there will be a recycling option for guests to return the bags so that they can be appropriately recycled in order to reduce waste.  There are other recycling bins for bottles and other plastics all around Walt Disney World in order to help ensure that plastic waste gets recycled.

Who else out there thinks that it will be pretty handy to have a Ziploc bag to keep things dry while on Splash Mountain?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
