Today’s was a big day in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs! The re-imagined World of Disney reopened with a radically different look and some mixed reactions from Disney fans. And tucked into the check-out areas throughout the store are the reusable shopping bags!
We reported on Disney’s conservation efforts announced earlier this summer. These efforts include refillable amenities in resort rooms and the reduction of plastic shopping bags as well as the reduction of plastic straws used at the resorts and restaurants by 2019.
So far, we have seen the refillable amenities showing up across the property.
Refillable amenities have been spotted by the DFB team at Port Orleans French Quarter, Caribbean Beach, Boardwalk Inn, and All-Star Music resorts.
But today, the DFB team has learned that some table service dining locations are starting to put plastic straws on a “request only” status for adults.
Disney has just announced that — in an effort to increase environmental stewardship — the company “will eliminate single-use plastic straws and plastic stirrers at all owned and operated locations across the globe” by mid-2019.
According to the announcement, this change will amount to a reduction of more than 175 million straws and 13 million stirrers annually. [Read more…]
Are you ready for THE SOLAR ECLIPSE?!?
La Cava del Tequila
La Cava del Tequila sure is… and you can be, too, if you’re in Epcot TODAY.
For today only, in honor of the Eclipse, La Cava del Tequila is selling an ECLIPSE MARGARITA for $10!
Much like the eclipsed sun later on today (around 2:45 pm in Central FL, FYI), the Eclispe Margarita has a dark hue. It’s made up of Tequila Altos Reposado, orange liquor, lime juice, agave nectar, and food grade activated charcoal. It’s served frozen or on the rocks.
And the white topper? That’s lime foam.
Here is Pepe, ready to welcome you with an Eclipse Margarita! [Read more…]
