As Disney moves forward in eliminating the waste from single-use plastics across the company’s worldwide destinations, we’re noticing more and more changes around the Walt Disney World parks and resorts as part of the initiative.
Just yesterday, we talked about the transition from plastic to paper straws currently taking place at Counter Service restaurants in Magic Kingdom. And today we’re scoping out the straw scene in Epcot, where similar swaps are underway.
On the other hand, in World Showcase, the majority of the spots we stopped at still carry plastic straws.
However, paper straws are now available at Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK Pavilion as well as the Canada Popcorn Cart.
So it does seem that World Showcase is in transition as well, and it is likely only a matter of time before rest of the park makes the full transition to paper straws.
