    We are passholders with room-only reservations at POFQ later this week (with no Disney dining plan). I see that refillable mugs are part of all dining plans now. Will we still be able to purchase the mug separately? If so, can we use it at POR also?

    Hello Jennifer,

    Any one staying at a Disney resort hotel is welcome to purchase a refillable beverage mug during their stay. You don't need to be participating in the Disney Dining Plan or have a travel package to do so. Just go to the food court area at Port Orleans French Quarter and you'll see a shelf full of mugs that you can bring up to the register to purchase.

    Disney is in the process of tinkering with the refillable mug policies as things may be slightly different at the time of your visit, but as of now, the scoop is this:

    If you purchase a refillable mug at your resort you may refill it, at no additional charge, with select beverages (usually soft drinks and coffee) at the food court or snack bar locations at that resort during the length of your stay. The mugs can only be used at the resort at which they were purchased (or, in some cases, at sister resorts such as the Yacht and Beach Clubs) and only for the duration of the stay in which they were purchased. Also, the refillable mugs cannot be used at table service restaurants. Mugs purchased at the resorts cannot be used at the theme parks. There are refillable mugs at the water parks, which may only be used there. Mugs purchased in the theme parks do not come with free refills.  For more information about refillable mugs go to and search under "refillable mugs."

    In your case, Port Orleans French Quarter and Port Orleans Riverside would be considered sister resorts. You could feel comfortable using your mug at either location.

    Good luck with your planning and please let us know if you have additional questions.
