Disney's new refillable Coke bottles will not only cut down on plastic waste, but they'll also save you money.
Disneyland, whichever one you happen to be visiting, has a slogan. The happiest place on Earth. If you have ever visited one of Disney's various parks, that mantra is pretty accurate. No matter how old you are, at some stage in your life, you fell in love with a Disney movie or two. So to visit a place that pays homage to all of those movies and characters, it's pretty cool.
As fun and magical as Disney parks are, they can also feel like one of the most expensive places on Earth. It'll cost you a pretty penny to get in, and you'll likely spend a small fortune while you're there, especially if you have kids. Buying everything from toys to food to drinks and the novelty cups to hold and consume them from.
Disney Springs has introduced an idea that can help with that, reusable Coke bottles. They're not huge, unsightly things either. You're probably picturing a massive piece of brightly colored plastic with a novelty straw. Not the case, as you can see from the photo below. It's simply a clear plastic Coke bottle with a regular straw. It actually looks kind of cool considering the alternatives.

I did a thing! After I tried the Fanta melon frosty at club cool at Epcot, I fell in love! You buy this bottle for 12.00 and then get refills for a dollar!!!! Fountain drinks and SLUSHIES!!!!!!! #clubcool #disneysprings #cocacola #cocacolabar #sodabar #rooftopbar #melonfrosty #internationalsoda #nevergettingbeverly #annualpassholder #disney #disneyfoodie #disneyworld
So how does it work? Well, you'll have to buy the bottle first of all, of course. The bottle will initially set you back $8 plus $3.25 for the beverage inside. After that, providing you hand over the bottle to be filled, every drink after that will cost you the low, low price of just $1. Pretty good if you ask us. It doesn't have to be Coke, either.
Coke bottle toting customers can fill their new purchase with anything served from the Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar according to Delish. That extensive menu currently includes 29 different beverages and encompasses seven different flavors of Coke and five flavors of Fanta. A trip to Disney might be an expensive one, but thanks to this new Coke bottle idea, staying hydrated in the parks will now cost you a lot less than it did in the past.
