Reusable shopping bags now available for purchase at all Disney owned and operated merchandise locations in Walt Disney World.

First introduced at the end of 2018 at World of Disney, the reusable bags are made of 80% recycled materials and come in three sizes, priced at $1 for small, $1.50 for medium and $2 for large.

At Walt Disney World, bags include designs for:

  • The theme parks
  • Disney owned-and-operated shops at Disney Springs
  • A Walt Disney World Resort-inspired bag for the hotels, ESPN Wide World of Sports and other merchandise locations
  • A World of Disney bag

Although the reusable bags are now widely available, the existing plastic bags remain on offer.

It's clear that the new shopping bags are made out of ... wait for it ... fleece.

Actually I wasn't expecting anything, it's just my opinion.

Boring? 🤔 What were you expecting from $1 reusable bags?

I guess I'm in the minority, but I don't find those new bags all that appealing. They seem kind of boring to me.

I usually decline to purchase at all with the poor quality merchandise and the ridiculous prices. So no issues with bags for me. I did sometimes grab a “to go” bag (the inkless kind) from the food court to carry in my Vera Bradley purse and put to use as a “purse raincoat” in the event of a downpour. It often came in handy. Better than the ones from the shops that would get blue all over you. I made a point to put them in the recycle bin in the hotel room. Now the main purchase they get out of me is the Pandora charm I can afford using my no mousekeeping gift card!! 😉Again, no bag needed.

Ask Cast Members who buys the reusable bags and if people buy all 3 sizes, you will find the answer is a huge percentage of customers buy all 3 and don't use them. Your view on this is absolutely correct. It makes no sense if your goal is to cut down on pollution but if you think Disney's goal is to sell bags and make money then it makes perfect sense. My wife has been collecting plastic bags this the reusable bag policy was announced and now she is collecting the reusable bags. Look at Ebay and see all the bags, plastic and reusable, for sale.

I was at the wheelchair rental area in MK, and a woman bought two reusable bags. The cast member gave them to her in a plastic bag.

All plastic shopping bags will be going away eventually. More and more cities are already banning them, or talking about doing so.

I also think this is not a good idea. I reuse all my plastic bags, including Disney bags, as garbage bags. I haven't purchased garbage bags in years. I live in a condo and my garbage bags have to be small enough to fit inside a chute, so grocery/drugstore/Disney bags are perfect for my daily garbage needs. And I also use them when I change out the cats' litter boxes. I triple bag that to make sure they get all the way down to the garbage bin without tearing open and spilling all the litter (I live on the fourth floor). The only time I use the so-called reusable bags (I do have several) is when I shop at Aldi. Do you know if I still have the option to request a plastic bag?

I can't understand the "toss" it? Who tosses "reusable" bags. Lol the object is to reuse them. People here buy them But remember, you are only one view. LOL, I live in the land of whole foods, Wegmans and trader joes. Most folks I know use and reuse the reusable bags all the time at the supermarket. Now I'll admit I did not do it for altruistic reasons, I don't know about your supermarkets but the plastic bags around here are crap on a cracker. they are so thin, 99% of the time people have to double them. They are so bad that what you'll see is folks put the paper bags inside the garbage plastic bags, so yes I take my reusable bags pretty much all the time to do shopping. I see folks use them to carry stuff to work and to those fairs. Lastly, it's not an either/or proposition. It's one step. lol, now to as what will happen when I kick the bucket?? They can use the bags to sneak my ashes onto Pirates of the Caribbean for one last ride then sprinkling them in the Haunted Mansions grave yard.
