straws?

Do they have drink straws available at the soda stations? I know some of the theme parks do not offer straws/lids (to avoid unwanted rubbish I imagine) and wonder if I need to bring a supply. TIA

There are lids and straws available.

This is the drink station on the Wonder (figuring the others are similar). There are lids to the side of each dispenser and straws on top of each dispenser.

They are offered, but i noticed multiple occasions on the Magic in December that there were none to be found. Don't know why though.

I think that the cruise line are trying to ween away from straws because they tend to fly overboard and are trouble for the fish. At least that is the tale I was told on a cruise ship by an employee.

Yes, there were no straws when we cruised Disney in 2004 for that reason.

I don't know about that, we had straws on both MR cruises in 2011 and our Hawaii cruise in 2012.
