    I'm an AP/Fl Native & will most likely be visiting the resorts several times this year. My question is if I'm staying at a resort, and I purchase a Refillable Mug for one trip, do I buy another one on the next trip? or can I use my mug again?

    Hey Howdy Hey Desiree and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited to hear that you are an Annual Passholder and Florida Resident. It is so convenient to take a quick trip and get a consistent dose of the Magic almost anytime you wanted! Disney usually has so many great offers for Florida Residents on discounts to tickets, annual passes, resorts and so much more to take advantage of. Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about refillable mugs. For those individuals that visit Walt Disney World Resort frequently, this has come up quite a bit. Let's get to it!

    I have the terrible job to tell you, Desiree, that unfortunately, at this time you are not allowed to reuse your refillable mug. I have personally asked several Cast Members on our trips and it was my understanding that once purchased, the mugs are activated for the initial trip and unable to be reactivated after they initially expire. The specific chips in them are used to activate the drink stations and are needed for the refills. 

    One thing that our family does is purchase new mugs but only a couple. Our family of 5 usually will purchase a few mugs and share the drinks rather than buy all 5 again. I have heard that other families will bring drinks, like water, with them or bring a refillable water bottle yourself that you can refill at any drink station without a charge. 

    I hope this was helpful to give you a little more information and some options going forward on your upcoming trips to the Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help! 

    Have a Magical Day,
