Well if the law did come to OC it would be the same as any other company. DLR would have to charge 10 cents additional for every bag.
though with the added DLR markup it would be closer to $10.00 per bag.
It is hard to say, can't predict the future.
I would guess they would still be plastic just charge the extra but would have more of the reusable available as an option too. Though they may switch to paper so as not to have to charge people. I would think it would be difficult explaining to out of country tourists why the extra charges.
We have a few of the reusable ones, we always take one with us when we go to the parks, we also put a few empty plastic bags in it too, we rarely use new bags anymore.
We've had the plastic bag ban in Long Beach for two years and it's no big deal. Everyone carries reusable bags in their trunk (many stores were giving them out free at the start of the program), buys an extra reusable bag, or pays a dime to get a paper bag.
I have Disneyland souvenirs from the 70s in paper bags and like the graphics on paper bags better than plastic bags so I wouldn't mind seeing paper return to Disneyland.
This kind of false pc law / overbearing government interference is the kind of law that would affect Sales. Would people make purchases and be happy with a paper bag, when Splash Mt or GRR is on the agenda, later that day? What of the occasional bags handed out for guests requesting a plastic bag to keep some of their items dry?
It's just bad customer service not to offer them. DL would probably just request an exception.
I'm sorry, but I am not familiar with the new law. Could someone please post a brief summary?
Does's this include (ex:Hefty) trash bags, grocery bags,etc...
It includes plastic bags that you would get at retail locations, grocery stores, takeout, etc. What it means is:
1. No plastic bags are given at these locations at all.
2. If you want a paper bag, most of the time you pay a 10 cent fee per bag.
It's designed to get people to bring their own reusable bags to the store with them. It does not affect trash bags, Ziploc bags, etc.
In terms of Disney - some upscale retailers in Santa Monica/LA/etc. include their paper bags with the purchase; Disney might do the same. I think otherwise it would be confusing for people who aren't from CA/the USA. One isn't necessarily likely to bring a reusable bag to a theme park trip. I actually think the law is good, but I think places like theme parks should be exempt. It's a good point that taking a paper bag on Splash Mountain, etc. just doesn't work.
This law has been enacted here for a while now and it just hasn't been any big deal. People quickly adapt and it's great to get these thing not just out of the land fills but off the sides of roads and everyplace else they blow around to.
