Ziploc is now the official sponsor of Splash Mountain at both the Magic Kingdom and at Disneyland.
As part of Ziploc’s partnership with Disney Parks, guests now get a cute resealable Ziploc bag to keep items dry while on the attraction. The bags are available daily on a first come, first serve basis and guests are encouraged to recycle the bags.
The bags feature the Splash Mountain logo. The promotion started this week.
Splash Mountain doesn’t have lockers to protect valuables like Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so the free baggies are a great idea. Guests have been bringing Ziplock baggies into the parks for years to protect their phones while on wet rides.
Cast members began offering baggies to guests wanting to protect their phones, glasses, car keys, etc. on Monday.
There’s been huge debate about this promotion among Disney guests as Disney recently announced it’s eliminating single use plastic straws worldwide as well as reducing plastic shopping bag usage by promoting reusable shopping bags available at all merchandise counters.
And, if you’re wondering if they’ve shown up on ebay yet, well wonder no more!
Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
