Things change frequently at Disney in regards to food, but luckily the free drink refills at these locations have stayed around. If everyone keeps playing by the rules, hopefully they remains!
The free refills have a few rules. It does not mean that you can bring in your own cups, a cup you bought previously, or ask for a free water then fill the cup with soda. You can get a free refill on a beverage that you bought at that location, for the duration of your meal.
Here are the places you can go and quench your thirst on a hot summer day, without breaking the bank.

I'll bet you've noticed all the different water features at Disney, and you might have even dropped in a few coins. Ever wonder what happened to those coins after you've made the wish?
Disney donates all of the coins ($20,000 in 2018) to different charities for children. Last year's recipient was Community Based Care of Central Florida.
Can you imagine how many coins equal $20,000? How many pounds that must weigh? I love to use this an example for my kids, how one penny might not seem like a lot, but added to everyone else's pennies, can do something amazing!
Next time you drop your coins in and make a wish, think about this...you are helping make other people's wishes come true, too!
2019 is a pretty special year! Mickey turned 90, and will be celebrating over at Magic Kingdom, but Hollywood Studios is turning 30 on May 1st! That's a pretty big deal!
To celebrate, there will be some new attractions added to the park this spring, summer and fall, Here are just a few:
Lightening McQueen's Racing Academy
Wonderful World of Animation
Star Wars: Galaxy Edge
Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway (Sadly, opening just after we go!)
A special Park anniversary means specialty Park merchandise you can't get elsewhere! Look for the usual mugs, shirts, pins as well as some other special surprises!
Last week we (virtually) toured Walt's office, today, the Walt Disney Family Museum. While this is just a taste of the actual place, you do get to see some amazing things. I hope you enjoy!
If you aren't among the fortunate to get a chance to visit Walt Disney's office, then here is an amazing YouTube tour, including a tour guide. You can see many original items that Walt actually used and touched, as well as reproductions. The guide is fantastic at telling what is original, and what is not. What strikes me, is how small the rooms are, even with a few of the areas being renovated to make them larger. Can you imagine, stepping where Walt did? Sitting in one of the chairs, and him coming down the hall? It's amazing to think about. Enjoy the video!
