The resort refillable mug at Walt Disney World is a great way to save on beverages. You can purchase a Disney Resort Refillable Mug in your resort’s food court. The refillable mug retails for $18.99 (plus tax) and you can refill it for FREE as often as you want at one of the mug stations in the food court. Beverage choices include soda, coffee, ice tea and even hot chocolate.
Before you decide on purchasing the mug, you need to consider how many times you will actually refill it. If you are staying for 7 nights and only plan to refill it once in the morning, each refill essentially costs you $2.71. If you stay for 7 nights and refill it 3 times a day, each refill costs you $0.90. Be sure to check the prices of bottles of soda, cups of coffee, etc before you decide on purchasing the mug.
Remember that the mugs are only valid for the duration of that stay. If you visit Walt Disney World twice in one year, you should purchase one mug per stay even if the mug designs have not changed.
If you are using any of the Disney Dining Plans (Quick, Regular or Deluxe), your meal plan includes one mug per person. Just pick up your mug and take it to the register with your Key to the World card and let the cashier know you are using your credit to purchase the mug.
