In this post we will explore the differences between the two dining plans and what each plan entails.
The Disney Dining Plan is an addition that you can add to your Walt Disney World Resort Package. You're bundling your hotel, theme park tickets, and dining all into one priced package. For each night of your vacation, each guest will receive a certain amount of credits that they use to redeem for meals and snacks.

What is the Refillable Mug?
As a Diet Coke Girlie, the refillable mug is priceless to me! At your resort's quick-service location, each guest will pick up a refillable mug. This mug allows for unlimited refills of soda, coffee, and tea.
These are "smart" mugs that have an RFID chip in the bottom. When picking up your mug, a Cast Member will activate the mug for the length of your stay, up to fourteen (14) days. Once you fill your mug, you have to wait at least two (2) minutes before getting a refill. They are also only refillable at a resort quick service location, not in the parks.
At the end of your trip you can take your mug home! It's a great souvenir of your trip. I love coming back each year to collect different designs. Yes, I have a "collection" of refillable mugs, not a "problem!"
