    No, you need to have a paid cup or refillable mug.

    I remember refilling our mugs at roaring forks at WL. Can they be refilled at Geyser Point restaurant?

    Yes, as part of the Geyser Point complex there is a QS counter and beside it a drinks station -- sodas, coffee/tea, hot chocolate, Gold Peak iced tea. As with other locations the soda machine requires RFID-chipped mugs or cups.

    Thanks Starwind. We are going to purchase the refillable mug. Can they be purchased at Geyser Point or only at Roaring Forks?

    Pretty sure only at Roaring Fork, but am not certain on that.

    Hi Rob - you can add the Beach Club Marketplace to your list :)

    You should be able to purchase the refillable mug at Geyser Point, although they might have limited colors.

    Can someone tell me the length and width of the flat part of the mug handle? I am going next month with 7 people and want to bring name labels to put on them.

    Fingers crossed they get the Freestyle machines at WL before August :)

    Roaring Fork was just refurbished and Geyser Point opened right before it.

    I’m not sure why they did not include Freestyle machines at that time considering they had started popping up at other resorts prior.

    You would stick out like a sore thumb and it would be obvious to everyone that you did not pay for the coffee.

    Can you get iced water in your own thermos? We are on the dinning plan, but thinking about bringing a thermos to help keep water cool at the parks. Thanks!

    Sure, water and ice are free. Just make sure your thermos doesn't have a glass liner.

    The flat part of the handle is 5/8ths inches wide and the length of the handle is approximately 3 inches at its flattest part, before it curves toward the cup. :)

    Very interesting, and great info. I had no idea the system for mug refills was so precise...but of course, that's Disney. :)

    We usually buy the mug or get it free with the Dining Plan. I do not like drinking hot beverages from them so I bring a cup from the room.

    Yes and no.

    You can get a cup of ice water for free. You can can pour that into a thermos if you wish.

    They will not directly refill your own container for hygiene reasons.

    Just read somewhere and of course don't remember where, that the refillable mugs are $16.49 at POR. Anyone know if that's true? We are staying at FQ but I'd make the walk to save a few bucks :) I see there is a yellow one now? Still white handles though?

    No. They are $18.99 at every resort.

    Not sure about yellow, but yes the handles are still white.

    Nineteen dollars! Yikes! I must have missed a few price hikes. Now I'm rethinking them for our three day trip, might not be worth it.
