This SECRET Tip Will CHANGE How You Use Refillable Mugs at Disney World Hotels

Many Disney World guests love staying at Disney hotels for the magic, ambiance, and the perks of staying on property.

However, there are a few downfalls to staying on property — the highest price tags, there aren’t as many perks as there were a few years ago, and if you get back from the parks late and want a snack, many of the dining locations in the hotels don’t stay open very late. This also means that it’s hard to refill a resort refillable mug until the morning, which can be annoying. But what if we told you there’s a loophole?

Many of the drink stations around Disney World hotels, especially the value resorts, will close with the restaurants early in the night, meaning you won’t be able to refill your mug until the morning.

However, we’ve tested out a new tip at three hotels that we know work, and we’ll continue to check it out at others. Over at Pop Century Resort, the refill station out at Petals Pool Bar is open 24/7, even when the pool bar is closed!

This is also the case over at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, where the drink station at Banana Cabana Pool Bar is also open 24/7

…as is the refill station at Drop Off Pool Bar at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! This is a MASSIVE game changer, especially for those who get the Disney Dining Plan and have resort refillable mugs for each person in their party.
