Rapid Fill (Refillable) Mugs at the Resorts
Disney's Rapid Fill Mug program replaced the former "refillable mugs" program in late 2013.
Rapid Fill allows Disney Resort guests to buy (or receive as part of the Disney Dining Plan package) a resort mug that can be refilled to enjoy fountain drinks, coffee and tea at any resort self-service beverage location for the entire length of your resort stay. You no longer pay based on number of days at the resort.
These mugs are enhanced by an RFID bar code that enables the mug to deactivate when the designated time is complete.
The Rapid Fill Mug costs $18.99 for the length of your stay, regardless of number of days.
To Use the Rapid Fill Mugs:
Place your mug on the tray beneath the beverage you want. If the mug is not positioned properly, a message will display on the Rapid Fill Screen. The beverage will stop flowing once the mug is full.
You are not able to get an immediate refill, you must wait at least 2-3 minutes before getting your next beverage. Again, the Rapid Fill Screen will let you know how long until your next refill.
Regular Paper Cups are still available and these are also "programmed" by a chip that's embedded. You are currently allowed three refills within an hour. Once you have either three refills or one hour has passed your paper cup is no longer available for beverages.
