Question Refillable Mugs and Popcorn Buckets ?

Hi All! We will at USF for 2 days in August and my question is: I have already purchased a refillable mug and popcorn bucket and HP BB mug 2 years ago.... would we still be permitted to use them to purchase drinks and popcorn during our stay, or should we just purchase new ones when we get there ? TIA

You should be fine, I've got a few from years back myself and have never had an issue having them refilled.

you can buy any mug in the parks and it will be refillable for life.
it can be based on a character or ride, or.....


damo listed the basic ones that are sold now.



my mug isn't the red cup/mug one.

it's the mug of a coaster.

dueling dragons, opened up May 1999.

You sure can! They are reusable as long as you have them!

The Butterbeer mugs are refillable as well? How much do you save on that? I would never have thought to bring them back with me on our next trip.....but we sure do love that Butterbeer.

i have the bb mug and have used it for refills.
it's nothing like the discount for the soda mug refills.


i really can't remember the exact discount but i think it was $3.25 for the frozen one that normally sells for $3.99.
the regular non frozen bb is $2.99 but i don't remember that discounted price.

You have to do the bb refill in Hog's Breath, not at the carts.

And I have NEVER gotten a refill price for frozen; it's all I get, and they'll give the refill price for DH and DS's cold bb, but NOT on my frozen. (2 trips, multiple days, different CMs)

Remember that you can also use your BB mug to get soda refills

Though it can be a pain as you have to drink it all at once unlike the mugs with lids, but it's worth bearing in mind seeing as you already have the BB mugs

It says on the mug that refills are for day of purchase only. If they don't care why put that? Jw. Lol! Still the best purchase I've made this whole trip!

I thought it was free refills the day you buy it? You can refill it whenever for about $1 or so.

Sort of on topic, if you buy a meal plan at US, can you use it if you move over to IOA? Can you use it during the day and then use it during HHN later?
