    What kind of water do you get from the machine? Florida tap or Dasani?

    Hi,

    I have a split stay coming up. The first 3 nights are free dining plan and the last 3 nights are a room only discount plan.
    The mug comes free with the dining plan, but when I get it my first day, is it only going to be activated for the first 3 nights I'm on the dining plan, or can I ask them to make it for a length of stay refill. Will I be charged extra?


    Thanks

    Big coffee fiends here also. Will housekeeping leave a couple of pods for each am or do you have to ask for them or purchase them. TIA Grammy

    They will replenish them as you use them. If you need more just ask your housekeeper (I don't like the term "Mousekeeping) or call housekeeping from your room. There's no charge.

    When we were there last year, my 2 year-old had the hardest time with short cups and long straws (as is the case with most kids' meal cups). I actually carry a pocket knife in my purse and will cut the straws shorter at restaurants when we eat out. But I knew I wouldn't be able to do that at the parks and because I wasn't sure about the straw situation, we took our own. I always take the kind that bend so it's easier for the kids. They fit perfectly in a travel toothbrush holder. That was easy to stick in our park backpack. Contains the straws but gives easy access and keeps them clean. We did have access to plastic straws at ASMo, but they weren't a guarantee elsewhere.

    If I have the dining plan at beginning of stay and then don't, can I pay extra for a length of stay mug?
    Do dining plan mugs end when the DP expires or are they all programmed for 14 days?

    you don't have to be on the dining plan to purchase a mug. it's just that it comes with the dining plan. so I would think that it would be activated for Length of stay. just amke sure when it is activated you have your reservation confirmation showing the 2nd part of your stay.
    even if I had to go to concierge to fix this I would. I would not pay extra or purchase a 2nd mug. split stays are perfectly fine and the mug should be good for your entire Disney vacation as long as you are staying on property the whole time.

    If you have the dining plan than the mugs you receive will be programmed for length of stay which default to 14 days. They do not expire once your DP ends.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, we have a split stay with the latter stay booked with free dining. Does the mug come with the dining plan? Also, if it does, we have to wait until that free dining kicks in? Thanks

    Should we save our mug for the next trip? Do they activate them again when you come back again?

    There is no discount for reactivating an old mug. No need to bring it with you.

    Ok thanks. I want to reuse it if I remember to bring it. Good to know they reactivate it.

    now THAT is a conundrum...if it were the reverse? no problem. just have them activiate the mug for the lengthof stayl split satys are good with the mug.

    I'm sure you could buy a mug for the first part and have it activated for the whole length of stay. but that would be silly, since the DOES come "free" with the "free" dining.

    I know you can pick up tickets with the free dining package up to 3 days early,l but cannot use any of the dining entitlements. does that mean the mugs, too?

    how many days do you have in front of the package? maybe a Cm (or manager) at the reosrt will ok it? doesn't hurt to ask. if it just a day or two, I wouldn't buy the mug. ormaybe just buy one for the whole family for that day or 2?

    It's linked with your hotel folio... I doubt it can be activated until you check in.

    One of the worse resorts for Refillable Mugs is Boardwalk... waiting in line at Leaping Horse Libations is annoying and in at least one case took 15 minutes last week.

    I noticed they are doing some construction work on the back of Leaping Horse.... a perfect place to install a self-service drink station... do we dare hope?
