Right now she uses a cup w/ a lid & straw. I want to start her on drinking from a regular cup without the straw but am not sure how? Or even when. Is 3 too young? ThanksAnswer Question

I introduced the cup at about 16 months. Just start out with a small amount of liquid if you are worried. At age 3, she should get the hang of it quickly.

3 is most definitely not too young. Start her out with a small shatter proof cup and fill it no more than 2/3 full. If you are worried about spills start with water only in the cup and don't try it when you need her to be dry and ready to leave the house. My twins started using regular cups at least some of the time by about 18 months, and at 2 1/2 they rarely spill (they actually make a bigger mess using a straw). Your daughter should be able to master it pretty quickly at 3; she just needs a chance to give it try.
