Disney Relaxes COVID-19 Guidelines, Allowing Guests To Fill & Refill Their Own Beverages

Walt Disney World has made an update to their dining policy which is showing relaxed COVID-19 guidelines when it comes to self-serve beverage stations. If you’ve dined at a quick-service location since the phased reopening began in Summer 2020, you’ve seen how Cast Members stand by the beverage stations to fill and refill beverages for guests. Now, guests are once again allowed to do so on their own.

As listed on the Walt Disney World website: “Self-Serve Changes: Some self-serve beverage stations—which allow for Guests to fill and refill their own beverages—are available at select quick-service restaurants located in Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Resort hotels. Locations may vary.”

What are your thoughts? Are you excited to once again be allowed to fill and refill your own drink? This change makes it especially easy for those that have purchased refillable mugs for their resort stay. We’ll continue to keep you posted as Disney makes adjustments according to CDC guidelines, along with watching vaccination numbers grow.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
