Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: What You Won’t Find At Disney

Animal Kingdom

Disney has tons of gift shops with thousands of different products you can purchase. You can buy everything from snacks to toys, clothing, and so much more. But did you know there is one thing you just won’t be able to purchase at Disney? Next time you’re there, try searching for a pack of gum. You won’t find it…anywhere.

So, why no gum at Disney? As you probably know, having a clean park was very important to Walt Disney. This is something the Disney company still holds to be very important. They don’t want guests to have to deal with stepping in someone else’s gum during their magical vacation or even having to see old gum stuck to the pavement. In an effort to eliminate this problem, Disney does not sell gum at their parks or resorts.

On another interesting note, you also won’t find plastic straws or drink lids at Animal Kingdom. This is to help keep the animals safe, as plastic straws and lids can be quite harmful to the animals. So, if you was for a straw for your drink at Animal Kingdom, you will actually get a straw made out of paper! How cool is that?!
