WDW Rapid Refill Mugs – What Are They And How Do they Work?

The Walt Disney World Resorts offer a refillable mug, now referred to as  “Rapid Fill Refillable Mugs” for guests to purchase and use for free refills. These mugs are 16 oz insulated mugs sold at all of The Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests who purchase one of these mugs may use them for unlimited refills on fountain drinks, coffee, and tea at any of the self-service beverage locations at any of The Walt Disney Resort hotels for the length of their stay.

If you purchase one of the many Disney Dining Plans, one of these Rapid Fill refillable Mugs is included with your dining package.

If not, you may purchase one at any of the food courts, resort “Quick Service” dining locations or pool bars that offer a Rapid Refill station in any of The Walt Disney World Resorts. You may use your mug at any of The Walt Disney World Resorts so be sure to take it with you if doing some resort hopping to check out the other resorts or to do some shopping at the many resort unique shops. The Rapid Refill mugs are NOT good for use in the Walt Disney Parks except for water. You can even reactivate your mug on a future trip, as long as the RFID chp is not damaged and is still working!

Pricing is as follows as of July 1 2015:

Rapid Fill Prices: $16.99 or included in any Disney Dining Plan. (Good for length of stay)

How they work:

The Rapid Fill mugs employ a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip embedded at the bottom of the mug which activates the beverage dispenser when the mug is placed in front of the sensor. These are only operational at your Walt Disney World Resort for the length of days that you purchased for the mug. The Disney Resort Rapid Fill mugs are refillable only at your Walt Disney World Resort.

The Disney Resort Rapid Fill mugs may be purchased at your Walt Disney World Resort’s “Quick Service” location and can be used at your Resort’s “Quick Service” self-serve drink fountain station and at pools that offer a self-serve drink fountain station throughout the length of your stay. The mugs can be used as often as you like until 11:59 PM of the final day of use. There is a mandatory 2 minute delay between refills when refilling with soda.

Coffee, hot chocolate, iced tea and water and ice are not restricted by the chips and will be available to use with your Refillable Mug in addition to your Resort’s Drink Fountain.

To use,

First purchase or pick up if on a dining plan, your Rapid Refill mug at any Walt Disney World Resort Quick Service location.

Next, go to the Rapid Refill station and place your mug flat on the stand below a soda dispenser of your choice. When your mug is full, the dispenser’s screen will alert you with a “Fill Complete” message.

There is a 2 minute wait time between refills so if you attempt to refill your mug before the 2 minute wait period is up, the dispenser’s screen will let you know how much time until the next refill is available.

If you are someone who prefers to combine beverages, you will be able to mix to your beverages until you receive the “Fill Complete” message.

Warning, due to the embedded RFID chip, these mugs can NOT me microwaved!
