Theme Park News


A day at an Orlando theme park can often hit your wallet pretty hard, even if you buy your discounted tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets. But Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World ® and SeaWorld Orlando are trying to offset some of the theme park costs by offering refillable cups.

At Universal Orlando, when you purchase a souvenir cup you’ll receive discounted refills forever at any participating location in the park. Refills are just $.99 plus tax. The classic souvenir soda cups can be refilled at basically any permanent beverage counter, quick-service restaurant, or full-service restaurant.

Universal Orlando also offers the new Coke Freestyle refillable cup program. Guests can quench their thirst in over 100 different ways when they purchase a Coke Freestyle cup. Once you do, you’ll get unlimited FREE refills at any Coke Freestyle station at either theme park for the day. If you already have a cup, extra days are $8.99 plus tax.

Currently there are eight Coke Freestyle stations at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure including Classic Monsters Café, Louie’s Italian Restaurant, Mel’s Drive-In, Richter’s Burger Co., Comic Strip Café, The Burger Digs, Circus McGurkus and Doc Sugrue’s Desert Kebab House.

Guests staying at Walt Disney World ® resorts will also be able to enjoy drink refills with their new Rapid Fill Refillable Mugs program. Rapid Fill allows Disney Resort ® guests to buy a Resort mug, which can be refilled for a certain period of time. Each mug is coded with an RFID bar code, which enables the mug to deactivate when the designated time is up. The Rapid Fill cups cost $8.99 for 1 day, $11.99 for 2 days, $14.99 for 3 days and $17.99 for length of stay. The cups can be used at any resort self-service beverage location.

SeaWorld Orlando has taken their refillable cup program one step further by coupling it with a conservation message. With the opening of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin the park introduced adorable refillable penguin cups to be used at any Coke Freestyle machine in the park. Every time you refill your “Cup that Cares” at a Coke Freestyle machine you will be reminded that you’re being environmentally responsible. Each use of the cup saves us about 27 grams of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere.

Even your initial purchase is beneficial for wildlife. One dollar from every cup goes to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. The basic cup costs $9.99 and is decorated with Puck and his penguin family from the popular attraction. Refills for the cup are available for $.99
