    If I bought a refillable drink mug in Oct 2022 will I be able to use it when I go back this week

    Hei Hei there, MaryBeth.

    What can I say except you're welcome here at planDisney! I'm so glad you sailed out to find where the sky meets the sea and found your way here today. Can you believe your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just beyond the horizon? Let the final countdown commence!

    I wish I had better news to report, but you won’t be able to reuse your refillable mug from 2022 on your upcoming trip. Once a refillable mug is first activated, the RFID chip is only good for 14 days. At the end of that time period, it deactivates and cannot be reactivated. I know that’s not what you were hoping to hear, but look on the bright side! The designs on the refillable mugs change from time to time, so if you purchase another mug for this trip, there’s a good chance you’ll have a new design to take home with you. After all, you can never have enough Disney mugs!

    If you want a fun souvenir that you can reuse on subsequent trips, I suggest purchasing one of the special EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival Disney Gift Cards. Not only are they adorable with their unique festival designs, they’re practical too! They’re attached to a wristband, which makes them easy to use but difficult to lose!

    MaryBeth, I hope this information proves useful, but I’m off to return the Heart of Te Fiti. Please stop by planDisney again if you need further clarification or if any other questions pop up before you set off on your Walt Disney World Resort adventure. There's no telling how far we'll go to find the answers you need.
