It’s been a WILD week at Disney World!
Not only did we get a TON of news about this year’s holiday season at Disney World, but we’ve also been at EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival eating and drinking ALL the things. But we’re not done yet…because today, we discovered something new!
It wasn’t that long ago when we started seeing paper straws replacing plastic ones across the Disney Parks. But today, we dropped by Joffrey’s at American Adventure in EPCOT and we found a NEW kind of straw — and it’s made of sugar! How sweet, right? (See what we did there?)
Okay, so technically, it’s a Sugarcane Straw, which is made from a byproduct of sugar processing — it’s made from the plant fibers left behind after sugar is processed. So don’t worry — this straw won’t get soggy like the paper ones do. It’s 100% biodegradable, compostable, AND reusable.
We checked a few Joffrey’s locations, and right now, we’ve only seen the new straws at this Joffrey’s — the other locations we checked still had paper straws. But we expect that these will roll out to other Disney World locations soon, so we’ll keep an eye out for them!
