As refillable Resort mug prices continue to climb, guests are left to wonder – are they worth the price? Today we are going to explore and break down this question! First, learn some Disney prices on beverages.
Disney Beverage Prices:
PowerAde $4.69 + tax
Coke, Sprite & more $4.19 each
Gold Peak Tea $4.19
Coffee, Hot Cocoa or Hot Tea $3.29 each
Now that you know some prices on bottled beverages, see some examples of what is available at the beverage station. With your purchase of the Refillable Mug, refills are unlimited.
Beverage Station Examples:
Coke, Diet Coke & Sprite
Hi-C, Fanta, Coca Cola Zero Sugar, Coca Cola Cherry, Water & Rootbeer
Vitamin Water & Lemonade
Even, Gold Peak’s Tea – sweetened or unsweetened!
Furthermore, Find Coffee & Creamer, Tea & Hot Chocolate!
Good to know: Refillable Resort mugs only work at Disney Resorts, not in Disney parks. However, it works at all Disney Resorts, not just the one you are staying at. Furthermore, take your coffee to the park in the morning, rinse and use this mug for water.
Refillable Mug $19.99 (+ tax)
For A 7-Day Vacation: that breaks down to $2.85 per day and you would only need to drink ONE beverage of those mentioned a day to come out ahead.
For A 6-Day Vacation: that breaks down to $3.33 per day and one soda a day will have you come out ahead.
Is it worth it? In short, YES! However, if you do not drink soda at all its worth doing some math to figure out.
For my solo 5-day Disney World vacation, I purchased on first night and had a lemonade ($4.19 value). Then, for my 3 full days, I had a coffee in the morning ($3.29 each Value), a soda or lemonade in the afternoon ($4.19 each Value) and a Hot Chocolate in the evening ($3.29 each Value). My last day, I only had time for a coffee in the morning ($3.29 Value). Plus, the mug makes a great souvenir!
Total Cost WITH Mug: $19.99 (+ tax)
Total Cost WITHOUT Mug: $39.79 (+ tax)
Therefore, I came out nearly $20 ahead.
