Walt Disney World Debuts Reusable Bags in the Theme Parks

We previously announced that Walt Disney World is actively working to reduce the amount of plastic waste that is generated within the parks.  One major source of plastic waste on Walt Disney World property is the use of the plastic bags for all of the merchandise purchases.  We are now hearing lots of reports that reusable bags have started to debut at the different theme parks within Walt Disney World.  Not only that, they are super fun since they are themed after their respective park!  There is a different bag at each of the theme parks, so you can collect the set!


When the World of Disney merchandise location that is located within Disney Springs re-opened to guests after a long refurbishment, the store offered reusable bags that are themed specifically for the World of Disney Store.  These bags offered in the theme parks are very similar, just with their own designs.

At all of the locations, the bags come in three different sizes and a different price for each bag.  Here is the breakdown:

  • Small: $1
  • Medium: $1.50
  • Large: $2

The bags are not eligible for the various merchandise discounts like Annual Passholder, DVC Members, etc.  Guests aren’t required to purchase the bags.  Items that are purchased without a reusable bag would still be placed in one of Disney’s plastic bags.  The reusable bags give guests an affordable way to help the planet and take home an extra souvenir that you can use at home!

Who out there would purchase the reusable bags with their merchandise purchases at Walt Disney World?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
