As a new deisign came out I would have the option to purcase the new design if I liked it or continue to use the preowned one until it needed to be replaced. Just a thought...

Here ye, here ye, that's what I think too! We just came back from a 5 day stay at Pop Century and it was RARE to see someone refilling the new resort cups! Nearly everyone had the old school ones from last year and as far back as 2006. That's the last one I remember. Not one CM said anything to any of those people using the old mugs.

I think it more logical too, just to charge people a flat price for mug USAGE, not just for the "new" mug. I honestly don't know what soda prices must cost Disney these days, or coffee, or tea. We don't drink soda, and I only buy them just to get iced tea or coffee in them. Of course, I don't know how they would manage to regulate old mug usage.

I buy one mug each time we go and that's it. I just try to focus on me and my own.

Some more info on it seems to be popping up on the internet.

With an official logo and everything, it appears that this rumor has been confirmed.

We're going for 14 days, so I figure it will be worth it for us, even with say just a refill in the morning at breakfast and at night...Plus we are staying at AoA so there's the handy poolside station too for pool time too. But this $18 price has ruined the value a little haha! We will probably only get two mugs for our group of four anyway.

Very interesting! If it is true, would it be great for the day we plan to pop in various resorts to see the holiday decorations.

- Can the Rapid Fill mugs be used in multiple resort hotels?
Yes. The Rapid Fill mugs may be enjoyed at any resort hotel self-service beverage station.




Wow, the Poly and Contemporary will be swamped with crowds of people popping in from the parks just to fill their mugs.

I doubt it. The round trip walk from MK to the CR would take at least 15-20 minutes. I love my mug refills, but no way would I haul them to the park and mess with going in and out of the gates and waste time to save less than $3.

There is no way I would leave the park just to fill up my mug. If I was that thirst I would ask for free water at a QS location

There are some "very credible" rumors going around about Disney embedding RFID chips within the refillable mugs. This would mean that WDW would have readers under each drink dispenser (where you place your cup) that would detect your drink. Guests not using the resort mug will get three refills in addition to their initial drink.

Additionally, Disney will introduce new pricing for the mugs.

One-Day - $8.99
Two-Day - $11.99
Three-Day - $14.99
4+ Days (length of stay only) - $17.99

Rumors indicate it will first roll out at the All-Stars as early as later this month Again, this is still a rumor.
I find this very funny. Only one day of my 9 day trip I am going to be ferociously thirsty so I should buy a refillable mug!

"$17.99 for length of stay (4+ days)"

You can buy a lot of stuff to drink at Wal-Mart or Target for that price.

Will dtd be included in this also. And I agree with most that the larger resort's need to add more soda stations in order to get your money's worth out of this. So now I guess ill need to carry this mug everywhere I go and chain it to my mother's scooter.

Nope. Remember, this is just for the WDW Resort Hotels. That said, I'm hearing some rumors that this might be the first step towards a WDW-wide refillable mug program (like Universal does); that would be something that I would definitely invest in.
