    does disneyland have real drink straws or are they paper ones like disney world? thanks!

    Hi there, Angela!

    Welcome to planDisney and we appreciate you stopping by with your question! I'm happy to see that you're planning ahead for your trip to the Disneyland Resort and making sure all those little details are filled. There's a lot to consider and we're here to help out in whatever capacity you need.

    When you travel to the Disneyland Resort, you'll find that they too have eliminated plastic straws from the Parks just like the Walt Disney World Resort. I know that might not be very convenient and not what we are used to, but I've gotten into the habit of bringing a reusable straw with me whenever I visit the Parks. Some Guests will even transfer their beverage into a drink container that they brought with them that has an attached straw. If you do bring a straw, I'd recommend a wider one for those milkshakes and drinks that contain boba!

    Back in 2018, the Walt Disney Company made a commitment to reduce plastic waste in an effort to expand their environmental stewardship. In fact, their 2030 Environmental Goals Report states that they've successfully eliminated over 200 million plastic straws and stirrers annually! 

    You're going to be visiting during my favorite time of year at the Disneyland Resort, the Halloween Season! Characters will be dressed in their cute Halloween costumes and there are all sorts of yummy themed treats to satisfy any sweet tooth! 

    Fun Fact: Anaheim has an annual Halloween Parade and Festival that continues to this day. Disney contributed floats to this event back in the early 1950s and D23 unearthed pictures of some of the designs! Halloween wouldn't actually be celebrated inside the Park until 1959.

    Angela, I hope that this assists in your planning for The Happiest Place on Earth! Please come on by again if you need anything further because you're always welcome at planDisney! We'll see ya real soon!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
