This probably doesn’t come as a shock to you, but we have our fair share of Disney World Resort Refillable Mugs. The Refillable Mug Program helps to get you free refills for a limited time (sometimes with a specific expiration date, sometimes for the length of your stay). But how do refillable mugs work now that the hotels have reopened with new health and safety features?
When Disney Springs reopened, we noticed that guests were no longer permitted to use the fountain drink machines — a Cast Member now fills your cup for you. It turns out, the Disney World hotels are following a similar policy when it comes to refillable mugs! You can snag your mug in a variety of hotel locations and they even show up on Mobile Order at some spots.
For now, you present your refillable mug to a Cast Member. Once it’s been scanned for validity, the Cast Member will fill a disposable cup for you. Then it’s your choice to drink from the disposable cup or to toss your drink into your reusable mug. Whatever you pick — refills are still free with a valid mug!
Refillable mugs are still available for purchase at well. We have also checked out refillable popcorn buckets in Disney Springs. You can read more about that process here.
Keep an eye on DFB today as we explore more a reopened Disney World — and sip on some soda of course!
