PHOTOS: New Stainless Steel Disney Skyliner Resort Refillable Mugs Now Available as Upgrades at Walt Disney World

If you aren’t the biggest fan of the latest Holiday 2019 resort refillable mug design and are looking for something classier, something sturdier, and something that reminds you of that time you spent three hours trapped in a gondola, look no further than these fancy new stainless steel Disney Skyliner resort mugs, now available as an upgrade to the usual plastic mugs.

The mugs are being rolled out to all resorts linked to the Skyliner. We found these at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Signage throughout the resort’s gift shop and food court promote the shiny new drink option.

With the usual plastic resort refillable mugs now retailing for $19.99 (up from $18.99), for just another $10 per mug, you can upgrade to the new Skyliner mug. You can also purchase one outright for $29.99. The plastic ones come included per person on the Disney Dining Plan, so you’d just be paying the $10 upcharge if you’re using that. These are available for unlimited refills throughout the length of your stay, or for two weeks. No discounts are applicable on this item.

The mug comes with a shiny red exterior and the classic “There’s Magic in the Air” logo for the Disney Skyliner.

Since these are stainless steel, they’re also vacuum insulated, and can keep your hot drinks hot for up to 4 hours, and your cold drinks cold for up to 12 hours. Not bad for a long park day, lounging out by the pool, or staying hydrated while waiting for the Disney Skyliner to resume motion.

The top features a sliding tab lid, much like many Tervis-brand tumblers.

However, unlike many Tervis tumblers, these mugs aren’t dishwasher or microwave safe. The lid is also not leak proof. It’s interesting to note that these mugs are produced by the same manufacturer as the other resort refillable mugs – Whirley Drinkworks.

Over at Everything Pop!, it seems the new stainless steel Skyliner mugs are flying off the shelves, with just a few left.

Again, more signage is out further advertising the new mug upgrades.

What do you think of these new resort refillable mugs? Is the stainless steel option more appealing to you over the plastic ones?

That’s for emergency bathroom use while on the Skyliner.

Hi,
Thanks for the info on the new option for the refillable mugs. Couple of questions: Do you have to be staying at one of the skyliner resorts to get this mug and do you know the capacity of the two different mugs. Keep up the fun coverage of WDW.

To be fair, Tervis stainless steel tumblers are NOT dishwasher safe. (I think the lids are though). The plastic options are dishwasher safe. However, not to sound like a schill, Tervis brand means quality. I trust them as a brand, they work VERY well, and I know that if something happens to the tumbler I can depend of the lifetime guarantee for repair or replace (which I have used, and it’s very easy). Whirley Dirinkworks, eh, probably not. For something that costs THAT much, I’m surprised they didn’t go with Tervis. They are in several parks locations, so they have… Read more »

They are not refillable at the parks. Maybe those yucky water fountains.

They’re a bad deal. Every time I’ve tried to refill mine I get a notice, “Temporarily Unavailable”.

Bada bing!
