When I was at SWO last Saturday I kindly asked for a straw at lunch. I was met with the reply that there are no straws at the park for "animal safety". Unfortunately, this meant that I had to consume my slushy like a barbarian. Oddly enough on Sunday, I grabbed some pizza from a place in Orlando called "Blaze Pizza". The straw that I found for my drink had a brown paper wrapper on it stating that it was made from plants and biodegradable. Shame Sea-World didn't do that instead. Perhaps the Straw budget got too HUUUGE.
