Trips to Disney are pricey, and many families struggle to keep their costs down once they arrive in Orlando. Travel costs, tickets, accommodations, souvenirs, and buying theme park food will cost you more than one pretty penny. You’ll need a whole Disney Dooney & Bourke change purse! How can you keep counter service drink costs down, especially when the weather is hot and you are extra thirsty?
Disney Parks “Free Drink” refill stations.
At certain locations in the Disney parks, there are a few stations to refill your drinks during meals. Don’t get too excited, as there are not very many, but here are the locations where you can find them.
Quick Service lunch at Be Our Guest
Buying a drink at Cosmic Rays or Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn will get you one drink and no refills. Heading around the corner to Tortuga Tavern will get you a drink with unlimited refills. Those drink costs can really add up fast. Have empty bottles with you? Fill them up before you leave and enjoy your drinks later on.
What if you have your favorite restaurants, and you just simply have to eat somewhere without the free drink refill option? A Cheapskate Princess would order that drink without ice, as you will get a little more cola for your money.
Looking to save a little more money on drink costs? Skip the soda and order this.
Staying on property at a Disney resort? Buy the souvenir mug for $15.99, and your refills are free. While the cost of buying the mug may sting a bit at first, it’s worth the money over the length of your vacation.
With the money you save, maybe it’s time to buy a t-shirt?
If you ever served a meal at home using your resort mugs as drinking glasses, you just might be a Cheapskate Princess.
