    I notice that you can't bring straws into Animal Kingdom, but I was wondering about the sippy cups with the straws that a child cannot take apart. My almost two year old does not like traditional sippy cups.

    Hi Jean,

    My kids liked the "sports-bottle-style" of sippy cup too when they were younger. (I still occasionally make my little one use one when drinking grape juice on my white rug!)  You can bring these into Animal Kingdom with no problem.  Animal Kingdom does not distribute plastic cup lids or straws on beverages sold to guests in the park for the safety of the animals, however, carrying in your own sports bottle is not a problem.  While there was a time when Animal Kingdom had no straws, it is now possible to obtain some "cardboard" straws in the park. 

    Have a great visit!
