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.
Free Drink Refills at Walt Disney World Resort
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.
Quick Service Locations with Drink Stations
- Be Our Guest (Breakfast & Lunch Quick Service)
- Sunshine Seasons
- Electric Umbrella
- Backlot Express
- Satuli Canteen
- Earl of Sandwich
- Cookes of Dublin
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.
It’s traditionally been just the two stores at Disney Springs, but stranger things have happened:)
Disney Resort Refillable Souvenir Mugs
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)
