News: Disney World Refillable Mug Price Change Test Currently Underway

UPDATE: In the days since this post first published, many of our readers have reported that the new price of the Refillable Mugs has rolled out to several more Disney Resorts in addition to the original locations named in this post. 

Heads up, all! A few select Disney World Resorts have rolled out an updated pricing structure for the Rapid Fill Mugs — refillable mugs that provide guests the option to purchase one mug and reuse it for fountain and other drink station beverages throughout their vacation for a pre-designated amount of time.

The price for a Rapid Fill Mug has been $17.99 for length of stay, with lower pricing options available for 1, 2, and 3 day visits since the Rapid Fill drink program debuted in August 2013. And it remains in effect at several Disney resorts currently.

BUT…at Pop Century, the All Star Resorts, and Port Orleans – Riverside, the price is currently $16.49 plus tax for length of stay.

However, the 1, 2, and 3 day options are not currently available to guests, so essentially

it costs $16.49 plus tax for guests to purchase the Rapid-Fill Mugs, no matter the length of their trip.

At this time, it is unknown whether any other Resorts have — or will — follow suit, and if so, in what time frame.

If you are a current or recent Disney World Resort guest and have noticed any pricing structure changes to the refillable mugs at your resort, we’d be interested to hear about your experience (and we hope you have or had a great vacation, while you’re at it!).

What do you think having one pricing option for the Rapid Fill Mugs? Please let us know with comment!

    We always stay in a Disney resort over Christmas for 16/17 nights and in the past our mugs ran out before we left. I hope this new pricing means we can have our sodas for the whole stay this year (5 nights Beach Club, 11 nights OKW).
