Mom and daughter shopping

    Amanda from VA Asked

    Do the resorts still sell the Mickey head hard plastic straws in multiple colors or did they stop selling them due to sustainability efforts? We wanted to buy 2 new ones when we are at POR in May as we aren’t a fan of the taste of paper straws. Thank you!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda! I'm so glad you dropped by!

    As the Walt Disney Company continues to examine their Environmental Impact, this question is so pertinent! I know exactly the adorable Mickey-shaped plastic straws that you are referring to, as I have purchased them in the past as well. My sweet fellow panelist, Wilma, just spoke with a Cast Member at Disney's Pop Century Resort this morning who let her know that these plastic options are NOT readily available at all resorts. By the time you arrive at Disney's Port Orleans Resort- Riverside, it's possible you won't see any. 

    Don't despair too much though Amanda, you never know what the Walt Disney World Resort has up its sleeve when it comes to the straw game. While I can't guarantee it, it's possible by the time your May vacation rolls around, we have new selections in the resorts and parks. In the meantime, my husband found this adorable Mickey Mouse Reusable Straw Set on Shop Disney. Complete with a straw cleaner, this might be a great option for your traveling party!  If these aren't quite what you're looking for, I know there are many other options available online.

    Amanda, thanks so much for bringing this question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I wish you a vacation that's a cool & refreshing as iced drink with the perfect straw.
