Question Refillable mug - need all info

Is there somewhere on this board/site that tells everything you need to know about the refillable mug? I have never looked into it because I don't really drink that much soda, but my DH does and he wanted to know about it. I am leaving in a few days and just remembered. We are staying at POR, no dining plan. If you could direct me or tell me what the deal is (cost, where you can use it, etc.) that would be awesome! Thanks!!!

They are only good at the resorts, but they are good at every resort.

The mugs are not useable at other hotels. The RFID chips are resort specfic and not usable at other hotels only the one you bought it at.

With the new program they are good at all resorts not just the one you purchased them at.

Sorry, but that is incorrect information. They are good at all WDW resorts for the duration you purchased.

Open up the link above and the picture of the new signs shows that it is all resorts.

I wonder if this is just funny wording and in fact it means at any soda station within the resort rather than any resort .....

Thanks, I really appreciate the info! We are on-property for 4 nights, can we get the mug/refills for $17.99? On the page w/ the video it says "There are four time options for purchase: 1 day ($8.99), 2 days ($11.99), 3 days ($14.99), or a Length Of Stay option which is good for any amount of time from 7 days up to 14 days, which costs $17.99." What about people who are staying between 4 -6 days??? I think my DH can get his money's worth from it, but not sure about me. I will drink the water, as long as it's not Florida-flavored. Thanks!!!

We went January 2014 from 2-11.. We did a split stay and used the same refillable mug the entire time at both resorts.. 17.99 does u for the entire time.. I've heard it lasts 2 weeks.. Can't confirm that cause we weren't there that long but u can use at each resort.. That was my worry with a split stay

Oh forgot to mention, my son doesn't drink pop but he used his for water and hot chocolate and it came in handy that way

I was there last month and we had the dining plan for the second half of our trip (split stay) and got the free mug at WL. In 4 days, maybe used it 4 times. Would not have been worth it.

Not sure if $18 is worth it, especially since we don't hang around our resort except to sleep and shower. We don't usually eat a real breakfast so I don't envision being in the food court much either. So, we'll see when we get there. Thanks for your input!
