    I have 1999 or 2001 resort mug. Is it still free refills?

    Hi Michelle! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question.

    I love purchasing resort-refillable mugs when staying at the Walt Disney World Resort. While you cannot use them to purchase beverages in the theme parks, you can use them to refill at the various locations at your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. And since one of those options is coffee, I always stop by to fill up on caffeine before heading to the parks for a magical day! If hot chocolate is offered, I have started to mix hot chocolate into my coffee for a little treat. I learned this from my friend Amiyrah, the amazing host of the planDisney Podcast.

    While you are welcome to bring your mug with you on your vacation, you will be unable to refill it with beverages at the resort. Instead, if you want to take advantage of free refills, you would need to purchase a new mug that is equipped with an RFID chip that will give you access to refills at your resort. This new mug will only be eligible for free refills during the trip on which it was purchased.

    Even though you won't be able to use an old refillable mug for every vacation, I've usually found it to be a very great value as long as I purchase it early on in my trip. Plus, if your next trip is on or after January 9, 2024, and you purchase a Disney Dining Plan, the mug is included with your plan! Not only is it a great deal, I find it to be a wonderful souvenir and memory from my trip. And nothing is stopping me from refilling it on my own at home!

    Michelle, I hope you have a wonderful vacation at the resort. Always feel free to reach out and ask any other questions you may have leading up to your trip...or after!

    To infinity and beyond,
