Napkins at WDW

Did anyone else notice this? The paper napkins at all the food places are now plain brown napkins. There are no more imprints of characters or Disney Parks on them. Just wondering if I'm the only crazy one that noticed!

NOOOOO!!!!!

I always carry around a few Disney napkins in my backpack. I know it's time for a new trip when I start getting low on my napkin stash. How will I bring a smile to my friends/family if I can't whip out a Disney napkin on demand?

Unless I'm mistaken, they were plain brown back in December, sob!

Please don't be alarmed--I too share your napkin rage. They are very non-descript and it's a shame. And I get that they are just napkins, but when you are used to something "special," you want it to stay that way. When I went the first time, the forks and spoons were purple and red, and the paper plates they gave you had Mickey on them as did the cups and the napkins. I was so impressed by this, that my Grandma kept a few, and sometimes would surprise me by packing them into my lunch. I actually still have some of them left. She mentioned the last time she was there (she's 86 btw) that it was a shame that they had let that go because she remembered a little 4 and 8 year old who loved them, even a year or two later on a bad day at school.

LOL at "We liked them so we took a year's supply of them home with us." Put two and two together folks.

We went in December and I don't remember them being plain. What was I thinking? We love those napkins

You don't know us very well. I'm still upset about the Mickey Butter!!!!! They even used to have a Mickey statue as butter back when King Stephans Hall was still in business.

Actually, I do know this board pretty well and shouldn't have been surprised at all.

Odd ... they were definitely Disneyfied when we were there in May.

I heard this on a podcast recently, too, and was hoping it was a fluke. I usually take a few extras home to keep in the diaper bag. Mopping up DS' spills or wiping his nose is much more enjoyable with a character napkin!
