    We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside resort for the first time. Do they have a 24/7 Refill station at this resort like they have at the pool at the Art of Animation Resort? We love the mugs but the food courts close at 11 PM and we stay out late.

    Hey there, Bryan,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. I'm slowly working my way through all the Disney Resorts Collection hotels but surprisingly I haven't yet enjoyed a stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside. I've seen so many beautiful photos of the resort grounds so I can't wait to experience it for myself one day soon.

    I have stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort quite a few times and am a big fan of the decor, themed rooms and of course the amazing Big Blue Pool. I've stopped by for an early morning or late night refill at the self-service beverage station near The Drop Off Pool Bar on many occasions. Based on my research it doesn't appear that a similar offering is available at Muddy Rivers near the Ol’ Man Island pool at Port Orleans-Riverside. I reached out to a Cast Member who confirmed that the resort's only self-service refill station is located at the Riverside Mill Food Court which typically closes at 11 p.m. I'd recommend inquiring when you arrive to see if the beverage area is available even when food service is closed for the day. If not, you can always stash a mug of water or juice in your room's beverage cooler earlier in the day so it's ready to quench your late-night thirst.

    My pal Nimmy recently stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter and raved about the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine available at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory. I believe this machine is available even when the food court is closed for the day so I'm hopeful you'll only be a short walk away from your favorite refill.

    Bryan, I hope this helps. If we can answer any additional questions please don't hesitate to come back and let us know. Wishing you a magical stay!

    Magic and memories,
