We previously announced that Walt Disney World is actively working to reduce the amount of plastic waste that is generated within the parks. One major source of plastic waste on Walt Disney World property is the use of the plastic bags for all of the merchandise purchases. We are now hearing lots of reports that reusable bags have started to debut at the different theme parks within Walt Disney World. Not only that, they are super fun since they are themed after their respective park! There is a different bag at each of the theme parks, so you can collect the set!
When the World of Disney merchandise location that is located within Disney Springs re-opened to guests after a long refurbishment, the store offered reusable bags that are themed specifically for the World of Disney Store. These bags offered in the theme parks are very similar, just with their own designs.
At all of the locations, the bags come in three different sizes and a different price for each bag. Here is the breakdown:
- Small: $1
- Medium: $1.50
- Large: $2
The bags are not eligible for the various merchandise discounts like Annual Passholder, DVC Members, etc. Guests aren’t required to purchase the bags. Items that are purchased without a reusable bag would still be placed in one of Disney’s plastic bags. The reusable bags give guests an affordable way to help the planet and take home an extra souvenir that you can use at home!
Who out there would purchase the reusable bags with their merchandise purchases at Walt Disney World?
