    Hello! We have a magical trip coming: 12 nights split at BLT, WL, & BW. If we buy a refillable mug at our first resort, can we use it all 12 days? Thank you!

    Hey there, Amanda! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with another great vacation planning question.

    WHOA! You really do have a magical vacation right on the horizon! Split stays are my favorite, and my family and I do a split stay in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area and the EPCOT Resort Area almost every time we visit Walt Disney World Resort. I love being that close to three out of the four theme parks! Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's BoardWalk Villas are my two Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts (and my very favorite Resorts), and Disney's Wilderness Lodge was my first Deluxe Resort stay as an adult. All three of your split stay Resorts hold a very special place in my heart and are three of the best Resorts in all of Walt Disney World Resort, and I am SO happy for you to embark on this most magical adventure in just a few weeks.  I'm thrilled to help you tie up your loose planning ends and answer your question today!

    My family and I purchase the refillable Resort mugs on every magical vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth. It is the best way to enjoy your hot morning coffee, sip on an afternoon pick-me-up soft drink at the Resort and stay hydrated with a sports drink while spending the day at the pool. I think you will be happy to hear that your refillable Resort mugs will remain activated for 14 days after their purchase, so, you should be able to use them for your entire split stay. If, for some reason, your mugs do not work when you switch Resorts, just stop at your current Resort's front desk to have them reactivated. I recommend saving your receipt from the purchase of your mugs as proof of the date of purchase and activation. 

    Speaking of quenching your thirst, I must recommend that you try a Pepper's Ghost from AbracadaBar at the BoardWalk. This sweet and spicy cocktail is unique to this unique lounge and is simply delicious! When you're at Bay Lake Tower, don't forget to stop by Contempo Cafe for an adorable and delicious dessert! I LOVE the Peanut Butter Pie! While you're enjoying your stay at Wilderness Lodge, you MUST stop by Geyser Point Bar & Grill. The views simply cannot be beaten, the cocktails are wonderful, and the Bison Cheeseburger is the best burger I have ever had! Enjoy!

    Amanda, I hope this was helpful, and I sincerely hope you have the most magical and unforgettable upcoming vacation. Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
