    3. Coke products, tea, coffee, hot chocolate,
    It is for the length of stay as much as you want. I don't remember id you have a waiting period like in WDW,

    We just returned and there is no time limit to get the next refill--there are no barcodes to scan like at WDW. Just fill it at one of the stations as much as you want.

    There is no time limit - in fact, most of the drink stations are serve yourself and they don't seem to be monitoring them closely. My husband and I actually bought one mug and shared it without issue.

    Would two guests (my husband and I) be able to share one mug? Or would we each need to purchase our own?

    We bought two for the 4 of us and shared them. We had our Hydroflasks with us, so we weren’t drinking that much soda anyway.

    I guess you could technically share a mug, but I would suggest bringing or buying some kind of mug to transfer the drink into for the other person. The mugs themselves are on the small-ish side IMO, and if you put ice in it, you don't actually get that much drink in it. We filled ours frequently.

    I'll also add that we never purchase the mugs at WDW, but did purchase them and found them useful at Aulani. The refill stations were conveniently located no matter where you were, and it was easier to run down and fill them up at Aulani than it is at many WDW resorts. There were a variety of options at the different stations as well.

    1. $18.99

    2. NO discounts allowed

    3. Coke products, and other self-service beverages like tea, coffee, cocoa. Many self-serve stations throughout the property.

    4. Unlimited refills for the life of the mug...true story. Purchased 9 mugs for the family 4 years ago, and have stayed at The Aulani 9 times since then (Hawaii resident and DVC Member) and used the mugs FOR EVERY STAY. Going back next week for the 3-day weekend holiday, and taking the mugs AGAIN!

    No holiday soda mugs the past 6 years. There has only been he riginal design of the mugs when Aulani first opened. Looks like the blue and red brown mugs that are sold now but they were a clear insulated cup. Aulani also sells the mugs that are like the refillable mugs at wdw but with aulani designs.

    Does anyone know if club soda is available in the refill machines? I know some have the soda button along with a water button.

    My photo of the soda machine (because I knew people would ask) show: Coca Cola, Coca Cola Zero, Diet Coke, Minute Maid Lemonade, a tiny button on the lemonade for water, the ice dispenser, Powerade, Fanta Fruit Punch, Barq's Root Beer, and Sprite.
