    Staying @Vero Beach for 2 nights, & heading to WDW for a third. If we purchase the mug at Vero Beach, will it also be good for the third night at WDW? What happens if we purchase the dining plan at WDW- can we pick up the mug early& use @Vero?

    Hi Linda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is such a great question. I am a planner by nature and I had this same question before our stay a few years ago! You’ll be happy to know that Disney's Vero Beach Resort uses the same Rapid Fill technology on their mugs that is used at the Walt Disney World Resort. Once you purchase your mug, it is good for up to 14 days from activation, so you would be able to purchase it at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, and then use it at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel as well. At Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, there is a mug refill station conveniently located near the pool at Disney's Wind & Waves Market quick-service location. I felt we made good use of our mugs during our stay.

    To answer the second part of your question, the Disney Dining Plan at Walt Disney World cannot be activated until your check-in day, so you would not be able to pick up the mug included with the Disney Dining Plan in advance.

    I hope you are going to love Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Linda. It has such a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere that makes it the perfect place to wind down for a few days. My boys had a great time learning about sea turtle conservation and were even able to work with the Cast Members from Disney Conservation to dig up and mark sea turtle nests. I highly recommend chatting with these Cast Members or joining one of the sea turtle educational programs if you are able. We also enjoyed roasting marshmallows by the campfire and winning trivia night in The Green Cabin Room one evening!

    Wishing you a lovely visit to Disney’s Vero Beach Resort!
