I just bought 2 packages of reusable straw w/ brushes from my local Walmart - 1 metal, 1 silicone. I'm not sure which one I will like best, but I am prepared. Now I just need to sew a pouch to carry them in.

    We were in LA in June for a granddaughter's HS graduation. Son took us to a restaurant in Malibu that serves pasta straws. We got them in our drinks and they worked great...no pasta taste, held up very well and, of course, after dinner you could bring them home, wash them up a bit and have a pasta dinner. They are for sale on the internet.

    Now that I think of it, they didnt even give us straws last week on the Fantasy. A straw is not a deal breaker for me so I didnt even notice................just drank out of the glass.

    A boy in our town had a metal straw accident! I love the resusable silicone straws. But honestly I just don't like the way metal feels in my mouth or I would probably use those, as well.

    Unfortunately, for those with Celiac disease and other food allergies and/or sensitivities, these can be a large medical concern.

    I don't mind the sipping cup lids at the drinks stations during the day. However, I really like a straw for my water in the MDR at night. Thus the reason for purchasing the reusable straws.

    They don't have any straws available? I thought they'd have paper straws like Animal Kingdom has. I can't imagine running around with our own straws but I also can't imagine my toddler having an open glass with no straw at meals.

    We have stainless steel straws for my 6 year old who has oral motor issues and can't drink from a cup. Yet. He's working on it! It has a silicone tip to make it easy to drink out of. They work great and wash well in the dishwasher. I bought them before the straw ban was in place because I hate the paper straws at Sea World. I really like them. And the silicone tips are different colors so the kids can keep up with their straw if they choose. We've all just gotten used to not using straws at all, so it hasn't been an issue when we are out, aside from my youngest.
