    Can the Resort Refillable cup be refilled at the Sand Bar at the Contemporary Resort Pool, or just at Contempo Café?

    Hey Howdy Hey Jonathan and welcome to planDisney!

    Jonathan, you will not be disappointed with your upcoming trip and stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort! The Contemporary is such a Magical place. Not only is it within walking distance to Magic Kingdom, but also a short monorail ride from EPCOT. And with the amenities that are offered, you might want to plan a couple of days to experience all that the resort has to offer! Thank you so much for your question about the refillable mugs as this can be a tricky situation. Not to worry, I've got you covered! Let's review the rules. 

    The resort refillable cups are a nice option if you and your party enjoy fountain beverages. No matter if it involves hitting the coffee station before you leave for the parks or grabbing a fountain drink on your way back from the parks, I love the refillable mugs! I am happy to share that you are allowed to use the refillable stations around the pool areas as most are fitted with self-serve refill stations. You can use your mugs as well at any resort refill station so if you wanted to ride the boats or monorails to experience each resort, make sure to take your mug. The only place you will not be able to use them is at table service restaurants or in the parks. In most other places you will be able to find self-serve refill stations to use. 

    One of my favorite things to do while at the Contemporary Resort is to grab my mug, a drink and just hang out for the mid-day break at the Contempo Cafe. The ambiance is amazing being surrounded by the rich theming of the resort and sitting back and watching the monorail go by is a spectacular way to spend an afternoon. At night, make sure to find your way to the beaches or at least a place you can look out over Seven Seas Lagoon. You will be treated to a spectacular show of the Electrical Water Pageant which is a special nighttime water parade of floating characters and whimsical music.

    Best of luck as you continue to plan your upcoming vacation. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
