disney refillable mugs
 
what do people think about the new refillable mugs. if you didnt see the video yet disney is taking away the old mugs. you may purchase a new mug with a micro chip that is programed to your trip. the soda machine will only despense when it detects the micro chip and if you have refills left on your trip. you get three a day for the your trip. you can reuse your mug next trip and buy more time on it. I wonder if they are still giving them free with the dining plan havent heard that yet.

If you do a search for refillable mugs you can read hundreds of comments on the topic.

Hope that helps!

Specifically, this thread:

But where are you getting the idea from that you only get 3 refills a day? You get unlimited refills for the length of time you purchase the mug for - $8.99 for 1 day, $11.99 for 2 days, $14.99 for 3 days, and $17.99 for length of stay (4+ days). And yes, you do still get the mugs free with the dining plan.

i might be wrong i thought it said unlimited for the stay but i thought it said in the video only 3 a day and 2 hr apart i might be wrong.

i was just curious if anyone used the new beverage system yet. I thought i heard it moved to all the hotels now not just the demo hotel. the new cups have to have the chip in them to use. was wondering what people thought about if it was still benefical to get.

If you buy a paper cup I believe you get four fills (or one fill and three refills if you prefer ;)) in one hour. The mugs are unlimited refills.

If you have the refillable mug you can refill every 2.5 minutes. If you have the paper cup you get 4 refills for 2 hours.

We were just there and the mugs worked well. You can fill them unlimited every 2.5 minutes. You actually get about a mug and a half as there computer over estimates a "fill". So every 2.5 min you get a mug and a half.

For people on dining plan that get it "free" it great. I stopped buying the refillable mug when the price went to 6.99. I just think its way to expensive. $9 for 1 day until midnight? But I always have a car...can you still buy 2 liter cokes in the gift shop?

It may not be economical to use for a single day, depending on your usual consumption. But for a length of stay mug it can, indeed be of great value.

We stay for 10 days. The current cost is $17.99. So that comes out to $1.79 per day. On any given day I will have 2 mugs of coffee in the morning, 2 mugs of lemonade or coke in the afternoon, and a mug of hot tea and at least one more soda when we return to the resort in the evening. I'd say I'm getting a pretty good deal.

Not to mention that it costs more then $1.79 just to buy a bottle of water. So definitely worth the money.

I doubt that there are many people who are buying the one day version.

Every 2.5 minutes. I guess I will have to slow down.:rotfl2:

In August, the diet coke refills are the only way I survive.

I used the mugs last month and they worked just fine. DH & I mostly drank coffee and ice tea which are not hooked up to the chip so there is no time delay for a refill. We got our mugs free with the dining plan, but have always purchased them in the past as we usually stay for at least 8 days. OP your mug is only good for the trip when you bought it for the amount of time that you bought it. It is not good for future trips.
