If you are staying at a Walt Disney Resort, you have probably seen the Disney Refillable Mugs. These mugs allow you to get free refills at all beverage stations located on Disney resort property. Those staying on resort and using the Disney Dining Plan will be able to get a mug for free, otherwise they can be purchased for a set price (currently $18..99).
The Disney Refillable Mugs allow Disney resort guest to get drinks for the length of their stay at ANY Disney resort. This means that if you resort hop for meals, you can use your Disney refillable mug. Keep in mind that the mugs are only good for the refillable stations at the quick service restaurants.
All drink stations have Coke products. You can expect to find Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Fanta Orange. Don’t drink soda? You will be glad to know that you will have more options at the refillable stations than just soda! You will also find that the Disney refillable mugs work for Coffee, Tea, Lemonade, Powerade and Vitamin Water.

- Each Mug is built in with a chip to make the drink machine accessible.
- Mugs can be refilled at any quick service location at all Disney resorts.
- Mugs come with a choice of 4 Lid Colors: Green, Purple, Blue & Red

- These mugs cannot be used at ANY Walt Disney World park, this includes the water parks.
One question we get more than any when it comes to the Disney Refillable Mugs is “Can you use them at the park?” The answer is NO. You can take them to the park, but there are NO self serve drink stations and cast members will not refill them at any food service location inside the park. I know, it sucks, but it has always been this way.
The second question we get quite a bit is “Can you reuse them?” The answer is YES. You can always bring them with you on your Disney vacation when staying at a Disney Resort, but you will not be able to get soda, lemonade, Powerade or Vitamin Water from the drink dispenser because your chip will not be active. You can, however, get water, brewed coffee and tea. If you want to reactivate your mug to get soda, then you just let the cast member at the food service counter know and they will do it when you check out. The charge is based on how many days you want to use it.
