During the next five years, the exhibition will feature new artifacts and refreshed displays, incorporating pieces from more of the 573 American Indian tribes recognized by the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Disney has shared that by mid-2019, The Walt Disney Company will eliminate single-use plastic straws and plastic stirrers at all owned and operated locations across the globe, amounting to a reduction of more than 175 million straws and 13 million stirrers annually. In addition, over the next few years the company will transition to refillable in-room amenities in its hotels and on cruise ships, reducing plastics in guest rooms by 80 percent. Disney will also reduce the number of plastic shopping bags in theme parks and on cruise ships, offering guests the option to purchase reusable bags at a nominal price. Finally, polystyrene cups will be eliminated. These steps are part of Disney’s long-term effort to reduce single-use plastics while still recycling and responsibly disposing single-use waste that cannot be eliminated.
