    How does the "rapid fill resort mug" work? Fill before you start the day, refill when needed at stations in parks. Is it a pain toting this mug around when trying to ride certain attractions? It sure is a money saver, but is it a huge hassle?

    Hey, Tracie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited for your upcoming November trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You will have an enchanted time with the cooler weather and holiday decorations.

    The Rapid Fill Resort Mug is a great way to save money but it has one major drawback. It only works at Walt Disney World Resort hotel Rapid Fill Stations and not in the theme parks. They provide great savings if you plan to spend time at your Disney Resort hotel where you can take advantage of the refill stations. If you will not be spending time and not eating many meals at Resort hotels then I would skip this purchase unless you are looking for a neat souvenir. The mug is included for Guests with a Disney Dining Plan.

    If you decide to purchase then make sure to fill up in the morning and multiple times during the day if you are scheduling a Resort hotel day. We have taken the Refillable Mugs into the parks to fill up with water but they are very cumbersome especially if you have more than 3 to carry.

    Currently, yet subject to change, the price for a Rapid Fill Resort Mug is $17.99 with the option to use it for one day ($8.99), two days ($11.99) or three days ($14.99) during you Walt Disney World Resort stay. This may not be worth it to you for a short stay especially if you are not having a Resort day and you are spending most of your time in the theme parks.

    Disney Dad Tip: We have used a grocery delivery service, such as Garden Grocer, to provide drinks for us that we keep chilled in our Resort hotel room mini-fridge and then carry into the theme parks. The delivery service plus the cost of the drinks is very affordable.

    Tracie, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
