    Love the Mom's Panel! Such great advice! Can you tell me which QS restaurants in each park have self-serve drink stations? We're looking for free refills. Thanks so much!

    Hi there, Kerri!

    Great question. It's always nice to get a little perk at the Park!

    Not too many Quick Service restaurants offer the "do it yourself" soda options at this time.

    While Backlot Express (Disney's Hollywood Studios), Electric Umbrella, and Sunshine Seasons (Epcot) do offer the soda fountains in the common area, it is, per Disney, not for free refills. The Cast Members who work in these restaurants are instructed to tell Guests who ask that these are not, in fact, complimentary.

    The Resorts are a different story. Here, you can purchase a refillable Resort Mug for $14.99, and use that at your home Resort for the duration of your trip. The Resort mugs do not entitle the user to any beverages outside of that home Resort.

    I tend to purchase a bottle of soda or water from a vending machine or a fridge in one of the shops, simply because I like being able to cap the bottle when I am not drinking from it. The risk of spillage is minimized, and I wind up drinking the entire bottle over the course of a couple of hours. Often, I have tossed a half-full drink away after a meal because I have nowhere to stash the cup.

    Have a great trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
