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?
You'd have to buy the two park meal deal.

first, my bb mug doesn't have a notice good for day of purchase.

now on to this question.
the meal deal is park related.
you can buy a 2 park meal deal or just for the one park.
and it is only accepted at the 3 places per park that are listed.
it costs more for the meal deal for both parks on the same day.
the promo ends 30 minutes prior to park closing.

so, park closes at 5 for hhn prep.
this means 4:30 is the end of the meal deal you purchased for that day.
it is not valid for hhn, they don't sell meal deals on those nights.

pandadora, let me add this.

there are different promos at the parks.

1. beverage deal.
buy this and it is valid for the day. pay one price and free refills that day.

2. buy any mug at the park and use it for beverages/soda.
the mug is valid for your lifetime for discounted soda refills.
you pay the discounted price when you use it.

3. promos in the park vary. sometimes it will be "buy 2 red handle mugs, get a third mug free"
those can be used for discounted priced refills.

Wouldn't you just buy one mug and share it? Wouldn't that be the cheapest way?

Yes it would. Some people just don't wanna share.

Yes, but with us we're a family of four and my brother will only drink full sugar drinks whereas my mother is diabetic so she can't, and I love American fanta (as I call it) haha so I make the most of it, so we end up getting one each haha...

But if you're not as fussy as us, getting one and sharing is definitely the cheapest way to do it

Can you tell me more about these mugs?

You purchase it and get free refills? Or reduced refills?

How much are the mugs? With 5 of us in our family, it may be wirth it to look into getting a few.
