    How do refillable cups work?

    Greetings Melissa!

    Thank you for bringing your great question to planDisney!

    I absolutely adore Disney's Resort Refillable Mugs; my cabinets at home are overflowing with all of the refillable mugs I've purchased over the years because I refuse to throw any of them away (they're cute!). You can purchase the mug at the beginning of your trip and it entitles you to unlimited refills at any of the Disney Resort Hotels for the length of your stay. The mug comes equipped with an RFID chip, which communicates directly with the soda fountain machine to indicate if the mug is still valid. You can fill your mug with coffee, tea, soda, and even hot chocolate (my personal favorite in the evenings.) 

    I want to give you a little tip that has worked wonders for me throughout the years...Prior to boarding the bus, Skyliner or Monorail to head to the parks, stop by the food court with your refillable mug and fill 'er up. You can bring your mug into the parks and fill it up with water from the water fountains throughout the day. While unlimited refills do not apply in the park, I have found that having the mug helps greatly for always having a drink of water while I'm waiting in line for the next attraction!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
