Our 1st year at Disney in 2008 we only bought 2 mugs to share with our 2 daughters which at the time they were ages 12 and 8. By the time we got to the bus line the drinks were gone. We went last year on our 2nd trip to Disney and bought all 4 of us a mug which lasted a bit longer. We are going back in Sept. and def. will be getting 4 mugs again.

I feel like the PP above with the mugs filled mostly with ice there isn't alot of drink in the mugs. I always feel my mug to the rim almost with ice, that way I have alot of ice to munch on when I get to the parks...

On our previous trip in 2006 the four of us shared two mugs. We were only a lift ride and about 200ft walking from our room to the Roaring Fork at the WL so it was reasonably convenient if we wanted to go down and get a drink. Keep in mind that they are selling it as a refillable mug, there is absolutely nothing wrong with sharing that mug if you so desire.

I think that perhaps on this trip we will purchase multiple mugs, although my choice may not be suitable for you. If you think you will make value on buying mugs for the kids, or if it is far more convenient, give it a go. You could always just buy one or two to start with and purchase another on the second day if you find it isn't enough.

Our girls always like to have their own. They like the independence of filling their own mugs (with a watchful eye, of course).

A question?

Hi All,

I'm from Australia and we have a different way of looking at things .

Is it ok to buy 2 refillables each and to fill one with just ice and one with just soda? That is we could melt the ice in our water bottles over the day and drink the soda when we fill it up without ice - most machines are pretty cold and we find here we don't need to add ice?

Thanks for your advice, as we don't want to do the wrong thing.

Cheers,
Deb

We have learned you can ask for a cup of ice for free at any place that sells drinks by the cup, so you wouldn't need to purchase a mug just for ice. I don't see a problem if you do it any way.

Hi Deb! Nothing wrong ethically from an American perspective on this. You may get comments about "why" from some folks though. FYI you can actually get ice at counter service for free now. Keep in mnd too that the mugs are only good for soda at the resort. Hope this helped.

Just buying new ones for the adults and letting little kids share, or do you think it would be better to get everyone their own, even little kids? I really wish they had a junior sized cup available as well...
Just a thought: If you have DDP, they will get a drink with their CS meals anyway. Actually, if you order a kids meal w/o DDP you will still be given a drink for them. It comes with the kid's meals.

I've merged this thread on the Refillable Mugs into the 'single thread' we have allocated for R/M discussions.

Thanks,

Hey fellow Aussie!

I see you're preparing for your first trip to WDW, I'm sure you will like it just as much as we did on our first trip!

And no, there is nothing wrong with filling mugs that way. You are allowed to do absolutely anything with them. If you want to fill one with ice from the machine, no problem. If you want to fill one with coffee, one with soft drink, no problem. You pay for the mug and Disney will allow you to do whatever you want with them. Heck, if you really wanted to, you could carry a larger bottle with you, fill the mug, use that to fill the bottle and then fill the mug again! Even if you were doing this, you are still filling the mug and you are entitled to as many refills as you like!

The only point where things go downhill is if you bring mugs from previous trips, but in your case this is obviously not possible!

Enjoy your trip!

The mugs are not leakproof. So you really can't carry the soda without possibly spilling it. You'd have to hold it upright all the time.

question-help please

I will have the dining plan when I'm on my vacation, is the mug included with the plan? I'm sorry if the question has been asked, but I didn't read all 15 pages.
Thanks!

I believe that if on the Quick Service and Deluxe you get a mug but on the regular DDP (1TS,1CS and 1 snack) you would have to purchase your own mug. You can check on the Disney website what each plan has.

you would think after all these years, I would know the answer to this.

we are staying at Pop century in early dec. free dining.
the values have just the quick service plan. but we paid to "upgrade" to the regular dining plan.

do we still get the mugs? I didn't think about that until the PP question.

No. You only get what's included in the actual plan you choose.
