    Hi my husband and I are going on our first Disney cruise on the wish in 2024. I’ve heard about the refillable beer mugs, can you use them for hard cider as well? Thanks for your help! Sam

    Welcome aboard, Sam!  

    How exciting that you’re planning your very first Disney Cruise Line vacation on the gorgeous Disney Wish! Thanks for sailing by planDisney with an insightful question about the Beer Mug Savings Package. I can understand wanting to know if your preferred beverage is included before making the purchase, so let’s dive into the Disney details together.  

    The Beer Mug Savings Package is available through Onboard Gifts and Amenities, purchased up to three days before your sail date. This one-time purchase of the souvenir beer mug allows you to receive a hearty 21 ounce pour (about 1.3 pints) of a variety of draught beer for the same price of a non-souvenir 16 ounce pour (one pint) throughout your cruise. I’m happy to report that yes, this does include hard cider as offered and when available onboard. Please know that the exact brands and variety can vary by season and by departure port, but here is a sample of recent brand offerings:  

    • Heineken
    • Bud Light
    • Miller Lite
    • Stella Artois
    • Guinness
    • Angry Orchard Cider
    • Michelob Ultra
    • Samuel Adams
    • Blue Moon
    • Kona Longboard
    • Newcastle Brown Ale 

    Depending on your day’s plans, it may not be practical to carry the large glass mug around with you. In that case, the bartenders can exchange the physical mug for a small token that you can hand in the next time you’re ready for a refill. Like magic, your freshly filled mug will be served cold and frosty when you exchange that token again! 

    Each adult 21 years of age or older in your stateroom may also bring up to six beers onboard, Sam, if you’d rather bring your exact favorite brand with you. I understand there are some logistics challenges of liquids with airline travel to Florida but if your plans involve an overnight stop, you may have time to go shopping before embarkation day. I often shop locally after flying into my departure port so that I can carry on exactly what I’d like to drink for that vacation. Please see some great details recently shared by my teammate, Ryan, on this carry-on policy.  

    I hope this has your mouth watering and ready to slip into vacation mode on deck with a favorite brew! There's nothing like relaxing onboard, staring at the sea, drink in your hand, and spending special time with loved ones. Please let us know how else we can help you plan this amazing vacation together.
