As part of Ziploc’s partnership with Disney, the distribution of Ziploc bags at Splash Mountain in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World started this past week.
You know that moment, when you’re ride is just about ready to go down Splash Mountain and you start to think “will my phone be ok?” Well, that’s the impetus for Disney and Ziploc with this new campaign.
Cast members are distributing these custom printed Ziploc bags to riders (you don’t have to take one, of course) who need a bag for their phones, glasses, car keys – whatever you want!
But there’s been huge debate about this promotion among Disney guests and fans.
The bags ARE super cute, and you can take them home and re-use them or keep them as souvenirs. But many Disney fans are mentioning it as counterintuitive that Disney is eliminating single use straws in their parks as well as lids and shopping bags, yet giving out free plastic bags at the ride.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
Note that recycling bins are located at the end of the ride to recycle the bags, and guests are encouraged to recycle or reuse the Ziploc bags.
Ziploc has recently launched a huge partnership with Disney. Ziploc is also the sponsor of the Kidcot Fun Stops in Epcot. Instead of a “flat Duffy” that kiddos color and collect stamps on as they travel around Epcot’s World Showcase, they now get a Ziploc bag that looks like a suitcase complete with handles. Kiddos then get an informational card about each country on one side and a little scene to color on the other side.
What do you think about this new partnership?
