Does anyone happen to know, is the water in the drinks fountains filtered? I've read some things that Florida water from the fountains doesn't taste so good and even has made some people feel sick.
The water at WDW isn't going to make anyone sick...it's not like going to a South American village!!! There is a higher level of sulfur in the water...at least I think that's what it is. It does have a strange taste, but I have to say that in recent years, it just hasn't tasted all that awful to me. I routinely use the water bubblers/fountains (whatever you want to call them). I hate lugging a water bottle with me, so we use the 'public' fountains. I stand a greater chance of picking up a nasty germ from a previous user of the fountain than I do from the water itself.
So, long story short...the water is fine. If you find you don't care for the taste, buy bottled water. I don't drink my own tap water at home....but I drink it at WDW. Go figure.
I had not seen that yet. Thanks for posting, that was really informative.
The water from the soda fountains is filtered, the water from the water fountains is not. It tastes kind of gross when it isn't filtered, but it won't make you sick.
New to this thread.....trying to get the gist....read back many pages...confusing...this will be the first time staying in the park...what are these mugs and where do we purchase them...are they just for the resorts or in the parks also....sorry that this is most likely repative...but I really did try to find out .....thanks all
These are resort mugs available purchase at any WDW resort.
Each cost $13.99 & they are used at the soda/coffee refill stations at your resort for unlimited refills during your stay.
They are not good at the Disney parks or waterparks.
If you are not staying at a resort, you don't have a length of stay at that resort, so you don't "qualify" to purchase the mugs. They are a "perk" of staying at the resort - like free parking at the theme parks while you are a resort guest. You must pay for the mug or you get the mug with the purchase of the dining plan (quick service or deluxe this year, supposedly all plans next year).
Well to be fair if someone wanted to pay the $13.99 for the mugs because they like to collect them, they can still purchase them at any of the Resort Quick Service locations. While that might not make sense because the mugs are a better deal when staying onsite for a couple of days, there is no rule or sign saying you have to be staying at that resort to purchase them and that you need to show a Key To The World card from that specifc resort or photo ID to purchase them.
Check out the very first post in this thread, it has the answers to all of your questions. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post; the top part has the ground rules for the thread, the bottom part has the mug program information.
thanks for the info....not sure if it would be worth it....trying to figure that out
we are staying at the BC
So there is no problem with you purchasing the refillable mugs to use at the BC/YC (sister resorts and you can use them at any refill location at these two resorts). If you spend a lot of time at SAB, you might want the mugs so you can refill them while you are at the pool. That's when we found them the most useful.
also, if you decide to walk over to Boardwalk bakery in the morning to get some yummy morning goodies, you'll have no problem getting your mugs filled with coffee there.
oh yeah! if you're staying at beach club villas or anywhere near the beachclub marketplace, I would get my coffee or tea there before going to stormalong bay. darned if I can recall if they have coffee and/or tea at hurricane hannahs, but I don't think so. I aseem to remember a long walk back to the marketplace for coffee.
Can someone post a picture of the current mug?
Never mind! miss read a post.
I recently found 4 old mugs from Dixie Landings in the back of the cupboard.
We were sure they were purchased as lifetime refills for the one resort but after trawling the Internet for clarification we thought we must have miss understood.
So emailed Disney and thought I would let everyone know the official response incase they have the same mugs. I'm now going to take mine on future trips and benefit from my original deal... I'm not being a cheapskate just making the most of what was offered way back.
Here's the email below
Thank you for contacting us at Walt Disney World Guest Services.
My sincere apologies in misunderstanding the type of mug you were
referencing. The larger mugs that were sold approximately 10 years and
back, are indeed lifetime mugs. They have a red top, and handle and I
believe have Briar Fox, Briar Rabbit and Bear on them. I confirmed with
the Food and Beverage Team at Port Orleans Riverside Resort and they
were very enthusiastic that yes indeed you will be able to use these in
your future visit.
If for any reason you encounter any challenges while at the resort
please do not hesitate to contact my offices.
We look forward to your future visit and hope you have a magical time.
I wonder if this means that all the larger mugs are considered "Lifetime Mugs". I have a number of them in my basement.
It's worth emailing and asking make sure you give a good description though as I easily confused them lol
