New park attraction sponsorships have been forming all over Walt Disney World resort recently. Ever since the very beginning with Walt Disney himself, sponsorships have been a part of what keeps the Disney Park shows and attractions up to date and at their best.
One of Magic Kingdom’s beloved attractions has recently announced a new sponsor and it’s a pretty exciting partnership. Ziploc is now the official sponsor of Splash Mountain in Frontierland.
My oh my, what a wonderful day! With this new partnership comes a perfect ride necessity that you never knew you needed.
Ziploc has created custom plastic bags to protect belongings for guests who plan to take the plunge down Splash Mountain. By forming this sponsorship, Disney is able to solve a problem that guests often worry about on this “You May Get Wet” attraction!
These Ziploc bags read “Have A Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Day and Keep Dry With Ziploc” and are given out to guests who need them. Although the Ziploc bags are completely optional, these little bags could become a souvenir for the attraction that are both fun and functional! For guests not planning to keep their bag after the attraction, Ziploc has stationed recycling bins at the end of Splash Mountain to encourage reusing the plastic bags.
Ziploc has really been making its way around the Walt Disney World property. The company was also recently announced as the new sponsor for the Kidcot Fun Stops around Epcot’s World Showcase. Similar to their Splash Mountain sponsorship, Ziploc created specialty Kidcot plastic bags, but this time in the shape of a suitcase.
Thanks to this fun partnership, the worries of wet devices and wallets are a thing of the past! So next time you’re headed to Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom, don’t forget to grab your Ziploc bag before visiting Brer Rabbit’s Laughing Place. Have a Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Day!
