Adventure Into The World of Yesterday, Tomorrow, and Fantasy: Disney Tip #5

by Peyton Spear

TIPS LOGOThere is nothing better than drinking your favorite beverage on a hot summer day in the parks.

Like most things at Disney though, these drinks come with a price.

Whether I am filling myself up with an ice-cold soda or water, I can also feel my wallet getting lighter as I tend to purchase more than one drink just to stay hydrated.

Over the years, I have been lucky enough to get a free refill of soda or a cup of water at a few quick-service restaurants but this does not happen very often.


After my recent visit, I discovered that there are six restaurants throughout the parks that have drink refill stations for free refills.

-Magic Kingdom:

-Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)

-Be Our Guest Restaurant (Fantasyland)


-Sunshine Seasons (The Land)

-Electric Umbrella (Innoventions East)

-Hollywood Studios:

-Backlot Express (Echo Lake)

-Animal Kingdom:

-Restaurantosaurus (DinoLand U.S.A.)

Unless you have purchased a refillable mug, take advantage of these free refill stations and don’t forget to fill your cup before you leave the restaurant and head back out into the parks.

What are some other locations on Disney property that offer free refills? Would you suggest purchasing a refillable mug?
