Free Drink Refills at Disney World

I’m obsessed with finding the best ways to extend my vacation dollars, so when discussing a future vacation with a friend…they were shocked that there were still fountain drink stations at Walt Disney World restaurants!

Let’s talk about this from the trip planning angle before we go into the nitty gritty of the tip.

Because a trip to Walt Disney World is incredibly expensive, your goal should be to re-allocate your funds from nonsensical expenditures into value-added experiences. Why buy astronomical priced drinks when you can have more fun with that extra few dollars in your pocket?

At certain quick service locations at the theme parks, there are drink stations that are in the middle of the dining area. When you purchase a fountain drink, the cast member gives you a cup and then you make your way to the station to pick your drink before getting your lid & straw.

Did you know that you can get free refills of hot or iced brewed coffee and tea at Starbucks?

All you have to do is be a Green or Gold Level Star Rewards member and visit a corporately-owned participating store.

This means that the stores in the theme parks, which are known as third-party participants are actually not eligible for using various rewards and features of the programs. We’ve found that the best thing is to double check the terms of use page  over at and confirm the participating stores.

It’s traditionally been just the two stores at Disney Springs, but stranger things have happened:)

If you’ve already got a refillable mug from your vacation, and you’re staying at Pop Century. The mug will be active for refills at any of the other Disney resorts, like the Contemporary Resort (which is walking distance from the Magic Kingdom)
