    Hi! I'm leaving for a 2 night trip in april and staying at All Star Movies. My question is on refillable mugs. On my other longer trips we would always get these mugs,but this time we wont be at the hotel much, mainly there at night.Should I get the mugs?

    Hi, Dan!  This is something you may have to figure out for yourself.  The refillable mugs will cost you about $12.50 each, so if you plan on drinking say 6 sodas over the course of your two night trip, it might be a break even for you to get the mug.  If, however, you think you'll be drinking more than that - a couple of drinks in the morning, and then sitting in the Food Court in the evening, filling your mug a few times, and taking a drink back to the room with you, then it would definitely be worth it.

    For my family, in just two nights, it would not be worth the refillable mugs.  I know that we wouldn't be at the resort enough time to reach the break even point.  We spend most of our day at the theme parks, and getting back late in the evening might see us filling the mug once or twice before going to bed.  I would be struggling to feel like I was getting my money's worth with the few trips we might actually make to refill them.

    I hope that helps a little, and I hope you have a great vacation!
