    Can I reactivate a resort mug

    Hey there, Elizabeth! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Boy, oh boy do I love a Resort Refillable Mug! Filling it up with piping hot Joffrey's coffee each morning and ice-cold drinks in the afternoon while enjoying the amenities of my Disney Resort Hotel is truly one of my very favorite vacation traditions! Whether I receive one as part of the Disney Dining Plan (it is included with all plans!) or purchase one the moment I start my vacation, it is definitely a must in my book! As such, I have built up quite the collection of mugs from my trips, and they always bring a smile to my face!

    However, as of now there is not a way to reactivate any mugs that were used on prior trips. Each mug has a chip inside that records the dates on which the particular mug will be active, and these dates will include at least your entire stay or two whole weeks, whichever comes first. In true magical Disney fashion, other mugs or bottles will not allow the soda machines to dispense. You can always fill up with ice and water using any mug or bottle you choose, so if you wish, you may certainly bring a mug from a prior trip to use in that way! I like to have a refillable water bottle in addition to my Resort Refillable Mug on my trips for extra hydration!

    Lastly, I want to let you know that there is now the option of an upgraded Resort Refillable Mug available for sale at many Disney Resort Hotel food service locations which is made of stainless steel and will keep drinks hot and cold for much longer! Keep your eyes peeled for these during your next visit. I for one cannot wait to get my hands on one of these sometime soon!

    Elizabeth, I hope this answers your question! Please do not hesitate to come back to see us anytime we may be of help to you! It would be our pleasure.

    See ya real soon!
