    Hi there, I noticed that each dining plan comes with a refillable mug, what can it be refilled with? I noticed that drinks such as juice, milk, soft drinks, etc are listed under the snacks so am curious to know how the refillable mug works. Thanks!

    Hi, Karen!

    You are going to love your refillable resort beverage mug. It is fun to use during your vacation, then you take it home to remember all the magic!

    The refillable mugs work at the beverage stations in the Disney resorts. The beverage stations have soft drinks, iced tea, coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate. Some locations even have the "FreeStyle" machines where you can mix your own concoction of soft drinks! Each mug has a chip so the machines know you are eligible for unlimited refills.

    For other beverages such as juices, milk, or any bottled beverage, you will need to purchase them from the refrigerated coolers. Most will count as 1 Snack Credit if you have the Disney Dining Plan, or you can pay out of pocket.

    To get the most value from you dining credits, get creative! For example, if getting using a Quick Service credit at your resort's food court for dinner, you get a beverage with that meal. Get a bottled juice or milk and store it in your room's refrigerator to save it for breakfast the next morning. Use your refillable mug for a soft drink with dinner, no extra charge!  You may also opt for a bottled water as your beverage with your Quick Service meal. You can then toss that water into your tote bag as you head out to the parks. One final note on the refillable mugs: The mugs only work at resorts, not inside the theme parks so leave them in your room as you head out for the day. One less thing to haul around!

    However you use your credits, do not leave any unused as the credits expire on midnight of your check-out day. Your credit balance will be printed out on the bottom of your receipt after each transaction. Enjoy!
