View Full Version : Why do people buy Resort Refillable Mugs on e-bay?

I was poking around on e-bay and could not believe the prices that people were paying for the Refillable Resort Mugs. One was up to 7 bids for $8.95 + $3.00 shipping!:confused3 Why would anybody buy these at that price? That comes to $11.95 if the bid does not go any higher! You can buy a new on at the resort for $12.49+ tax. I do not get it.

One valid reason might be because they left theirs in Disney and/or didnt buy one but would like to have one. Could come up with plenty of other reasons but I guess the best one would be its none of my darn business!

I would like to think they are trying to purchase all the Resort logo mugs to keep in a collection, because they are not being sold anymore at any of the Resorts counter service locations.

They no longer sell the refillable mugs? When did they stop?

I could be wrong but I don't think they sell resort specific mugs any more. I think they are all the same now.

Honestly?

They are too cheap to buy one at the resort, and don't realize after shipping, etc., that they are saving maybe a dollar or 2. There are a lot of people out there that aren't too bright.:rotfl:

Yep, that's what I think. Don't they all have the same design? Or is that just for YOMD?

I forgot to mention earlier that for those who dont know Coronado Springs is the only mug not sell them. The reason is their dining locations are not owned by WDW, so they are the only location which still sells their Resort logo mugs.

a little off topic, maybe, sorry if so. couldn't resist to share.
a couple of months ago, I saw several listings on ebay for bundles of 'fast passes'. honestly...and there were several bids, and fairly high bids. the listing even had pics showing the fast passes from different rides. poor winners of those bids...

This comment always cracks me up - - assuming you are going to Disney so you will be using cups, glasses, plates, sheets, towels, comforters, walkways, carpet, silverware, toliet seats, bathtubs, etc and so forth that other people you don't know have used.

And if you are a germaphobe (not one so not sure on how to spell that) all of the above would have been cleaned by someone else whereas the mug you got off ebay would be cleaned by you before use.

I've seen used WDW resort refillable mugs on ebay...:scared1:

Collectors items, baby! I have a minty 1996 refillable I am holding on to. Over the years I have sold Poly resort glasses from the 80's, a 1976 coffee mug and a boatload of defunct place glasses on ebay for a decent sum, like from D-zrts, anyone remember that place? There is a big 2nd hand market out there.

:offtopic: Sorry to get off topic, but do the restaurants at CSR honor the DDP if they are not owned by WDW?

I know I've been keeping an eye on eBay for an All Star Movies mug. We saved our mugs from CSR and AKL, but Movies was our first trip and I didn't think to keep them. I wanted a mug from each of the resorts we visited for a keepsake. I guess now that doesn't matter if the resorts no longer have their "own" mug. :worried:
I did buy a Dixie Landings refillable mug off eBay because Brer Fox, Rabbit, and Bear were on it and I love them. I just gave the mug a good scrubbing and it was as good as new.

We bought mugs last fall. Can you bring them and use them again. Or do you have to buy new ones? May sound silly but I really don't know. :confused3

Refillable mugs are for the length of your stay only. Technically, you would need to buy new mugs for your next trip.

I'm just sayin that mug could have been covered in mold or who knows what bleached and sold to you. In a restaurant it most likely went through the dish washer. Blah blah blah. To each his own. I wouldnt buy underwear on ebay but I bet they sell them. Just one of those things I personally dont want used. ;)

I have some I am planning on putting on ebay but keep stalling because I don't want to see a Can you believe what this person has put on ebay post...I will probably get around to it in the next week or so.

Need to clean out my basement.

Awww heck...if I had known people would buy my old resort mugs I wouldn't have thrown about 15 of them out a few months back. It never occurred to me that someone would collect them.

I bought mine a few months back, because the mug I had from our Disneymoon broke, and it had sentimental value. *BUT* it sits on a shelf, it's not used :)

Well, we plan on buying them in July. I think I will sell mine when we return since they will just become clutter here. As they say" One man's trash is another's treasure."

I totally understand where your coming from. I don't share the aversion, but you know...each person has their own "thing" that may or may not seem logical or rational to the rest of us. ;)
