What kind of refillable cup do you bring for soft drinks??

Hi DISsers!
Just wondering ...
IF you use a refillable mug/cup , filling it, of course, in a fully acceptable i.e. sanitary way, at the "free drink" station,
What kind do you favor?
Aluminum?
Insulated?
With a straw?
With a spout?
Pictures anyone

We just use the cups provided. Since we have to dirty them to fill up the refillables, it seemed easiest. And I don't have to do dishes while on vacation.

The cups are tiny like Mc.D's kid size cups. We bring the clear double wall tumblers (all Disney blinged up) with the hard plastic straw. One of our cups holds almost 3 of the Disney paper cups so even though I have to dirty a cup it's better than using up 3 cups. We have also used the sail away drink (who doesn't get one of those!) cup and refilled it with soda for the rest of the cruise.

I used to bring the venti sized large cold drink cup from Starbuck and use that onboard but my sister just gave me a Tervis tumbler that I love. I LOVE a ton of ice in my drink and this way I can pile in the ice and still have a decent amount of beverage. The onboard cups also start to sweat out the bottom after awhile.

She got it in Bed, Bath and Beyond but they have a website and also have some Disney ones, nautical ones, a pirate one and a ton of others.....the Disney ones in the store were smaller than what I received but looks like you can get all sizes online....some come with a travel lid and for the ones that don't you can order lids and straws.

Mine has a lid, is double walled to reduce condensation, can be used for hot or cold drinks and has a long, flexible straw.

Well I think this means DH and I will be bringing out own Refillable Cups. I like alot of ice as well. Not sure if we will just bring the refillable mugs we got on our last Disney trip last year or buy something else..HMMM not sure yet. But thank you for the info.

Thanks for all the comments so far! Keep em' coming!
I was thinking of this:

http://www.disneystore.com/drinkware...86848/1000350/

but I wonder if these would keep cold drinks cold, and if you can fit ice cubes into the top. Anyone use aluminum water bottles? The price of 2/$14 and the variety of designs is really tempting

i think i will start saving my McDs large sweet tea cups for 2 months before we go so we have a supply of big styro cups. If they get lost or torn up no biggie,, otherwise I might be sad if I lost my Tervis tumbler

We took tall plastic cups with the lids and hard straws and used them exactly once. The cups they had at the soda bar were plenty big for us. I think they might have been 10 oz cups. The thing I wish I had taken was water bottles!

Your hands will freeze if you put ice in these, plus the opening is pretty narrow...you pretty much have to hand feed the ice in the top. Also, when not in use and you have more than one...they are loud when then bang into each other...they also don't keep things cold for too long....that is why I like an insulated beverage container.

They sell these at the disney store as well.

We are getting the quick service dining plan when we stay at WDW before we cruise, so we are going to bring our refillable mugs to use on the cruises.

I just bought this set of double-walled tumblers for us to use on our upcoming cruise... I think they will be perfect!

I just have to make sure to remember to bring some dish soap for washing them at the end of the day.
