    I will be staying at a WDW resort a couple of days before my Disney 7 night cruise and will be returning to another WDW resort for a couple of days after. If I purchase a refillable mug will I be able to use it upon returning from my cruise?

    Hey there, Pamela, and welcome to planDisney! See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me! And you, too, it seems! Your upcoming land and sea adventure sounds like an amazing way to see how far you'll go to create some magical memories!

    When you purchase a resort-refillable mug at your Disney Resort hotel, the mug will be activated for use for 14 days from the date of purchase, so depending on the length of your initial stay before your cruise, it could still be active upon your return if it is still within that two-week window. During the 14-day use period, your mug can be refilled at any Disney Resorts Collection hotel, so even if you stay at a different resort upon your return, it will still be good to go! If it has been longer than 14 days from activation after your voyage, you would need to purchase another mug to continue to use the refill stations at your resort. As an added bonus for you, you will also be able to refill your mug onboard your Disney Cruise at the complimentary drink stations on the ship! 

    Now that we've covered that, let's talk about your thirst for adventure on the high seas! I recently took my third Disney Cruise Line cruise aboard the Disney Dream, and some of my favorite activities were the Silent Dance Party and the Broadway-quality shows! In fact, the entire planDisney Class of 2024 had front-row seats for The Golden Mickeys on our training cruise! You never know who is going to swing across the stage, and we loved seeing so many of our favorite characters! I definitely recommend checking out all of the entertainment on board, and if you have any additional questions about your cruise, feel free to reach out to my panelist classmate and Disney Cruise Line specialist, JoVonn! She's always got the best advice for making magic on the open seas!

    I hope this helps, Pamela, and I'm wishing you a magical vacation and the best of both worlds - land and sea!

    Bon Voyage,
