Well, the ”Happiest place on earth” is the latest company to ditch plastic straws. In an announcement thursday, the company said they would eliminate plastic straws and plastic stirrers at all Disney operated locations by mid-2019, with the exception of Disney Tokyo. This move translates to a reduction of more than 175 million straws and 13 million stirrers annually. Additionally, they are working to reduce the number of plastic shopping bags in its parks and cruise ships by offering reuseable bags for purchase.  Starbucks shocked many earlier this month when they announced they were eliminating plastic straws from all locations by 2020, with many companies following suit.
