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!
Yeah, believe it or not, even a reusable shopping bag can be fodder for conversation among Disney guests, and it’s due to Disney’s announcement about reducing plastic waste in the World by eliminating (really limiting) single-use plastic straws and single-use plastic bags.
But when you get a look at these cute reusable bags, you might just forget about all the plastic drama. Because Mickey!
Who could stay grumpy when they look at that face?!
You’ll find displays of reusable bags in three sizes at the check-outs in World of Disney. The cheerful blue color stands out against the more muted displays.
With some prices rising all across the resort, it’s nice to see that these bags are really reasonably priced. The small and medium sizes are just $1, and the larger size — which is massive! — is $2.
The other side of the bag features the four characters who, with the main mouse, make up the Fab 5 of classic Disney characters. We see you, down there in the corner, Pluto, and we love you. 😉
The large bag is quite large, big enough for several tee shirts, a couple of good size stuffed animals, or just about anything else you can find. We love that because it means we could feasibly get away with buying just one bag to haul all of our stuff. (Plus, are we the only ones who use Disney reusable bags when we get back home? Grocery shopping = way more fun with Mickey!)
One side of the bag highlights the Disney Company’s commitment to the environment, citing the bag’s 80% construction from recycled plastic bottles and providing the web address for Disney’s environmental stance.
A tag shares even more information about this initiative.
Free plastic bags are still available at World of Disney, but honestly, we think of these reusable bags as a functional souvenir, so we’re happy they’re available!
