    Can i use my own reusable cup to buy a coffee from in the Disney parks? i would still pay the whole amount but similar to how you can take your own cup to a Starbucks and they will make your drink in that for you.

    Hiya Jennifer!

    Thank you for sending us your question today, and welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! As a fellow coffee lover and somebody who spends all day, from opening until close, in the parks, I love that we have the same priority: coffee! Coffee is a necessity on my Disney trips, and with the seasonal offerings Disney restaurants often offer, I always love stopping by the different food and beverage locations!

    As you probably know, the Walt Disney World Resort is known for treating the safety of its guests as its utmost priority. For that reason, many people with severe allergies feel comfortable eating out at the Walt Disney World Resort as they know that their safety and dietary restrictions will be taken seriously. Unfortunately, this means that food and beverage locations on Disney property will not take your reusable cup behind the counter as they would at Starbucks. If you order coffee at one of the coffee counters at a quick-service restaurant, they would simply give you the drink in its original container, which you can then transfer into your reusable cup. If you intend on purchasing a Resort mug, however, you will be able to use these mugs for the soda machines and hot beverages. It is also important to note that you can use a reusable cup at the Starbucks location on the west side of Disney Springs, but this is the only location on Disney property that will accept your mug! If you are concerned about your environmental footprint, note that your Starbucks and coffee cups can be put in most recycling bins at the parks and resorts. Protecting the environment is also one of Disney's priorities!

    Now, Jennifer, you will be arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort just in time for the end of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival! Ending on July 4th, 2022, you will be able to experience the last few days of the stunning festival at EPCOT. Not only is the view of the park covered in flowers one you will never forget, but you will also be able to see topiaries shaped like your favourite Disney characters, experience fun activities and try unique treats. Plus, you might even be able to catch some of your favourite artists at the last few dates of the Garden Rocks Concert Series! With so many limited-time offerings, this festival is one you will not want to miss!

    I hope this was helpful, Jennifer, and that you and your family will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
