to all you fellow hot tea drinkers: you might not see tea bags at the refill stations.... ALL IS NOT LOST! they still have hot tea. you just have to ask the CM at the checkout for the bags (no, you don't have to wait in line, just wait until they are done with the last transaction).. they did this because people were helping themselves to 20 teabags at a time! (even people without mugs)
I asked a CM, well, there are coffeepots in the room, but no tea bags, so I make hot water with my coffepot, but I DO have a mug. they told me to go ahead and take a "few". but, apparently, people were restocking their home pantry!
as you fellow tea drinkers know, hot tea drinkers are discriminated against! (hubby says, "as well you should be"rotfl2
you go out for breakfast. hubby gets, "more coffee, sir?" I get "more hot water for your limp, 3 times used tea bag?"
I don't care if it's a church group, Bible study, school meeting, soccer meeting, there is always coffee!(not to mention the "free" continental breakfasts at the Day's inn, Knights Inn, etc, on the trip down). TEA?? NAH!
ok, off my soap box. but, never fear, Disney still offers tea bags for the mugs!!! YAY!!!

Poly Mug Questions

1) Besides Captain Cook's, is there anywhere else to fill mugs at Poly?

2) How is the hot chocolate at Captain Cook's? Is it just water and cocoa, or does it have milk in it?

3) Is there herbal (non-caffeine) hot tea that you can use to fill your mug (like Bigelow) or is it only Lipton caffeineted tea?

4) Finally, do they have iced tea? If so, what brand/kind?

CC's is the only place to get refills at Poly. I can't comment on the hot chocolate or tea (we didn't get any when we were there). They don't have iced tea in the fountain (I just double checked the picture MsStinkerBelle posted in the Poly thread), they may have it in bottles in the cooler. They do have Minute Maid light raspberry lemonade that our kids really liked. Sorry not to be much help!

Thanks! I had seen that some resorts have Gold Peak Tea and was hoping Poly was one of them. I like the Light Lemonade, so that would probably be our drink of choice later in the day.

Is there any objection to our filling the mugs, going out, transferring the contents of the mugs into larger cups we bring with us, going to the back of the line, and getting another immediate refill that we will also add to our personal cups? That way we wouldn't have drunk the whole thing by the time we walked back to our room!

Or does Disney object to this?
We *kinda* do something similar. I fill up the mugs with soda and never put ice in them if I'm carrying it back to the room. Once I get back to the room, I use a different glass that has ice in it and pour the stuff in the mug into it. So, I get about 2x as much soda (or more) by leaving out the ice.

It doesn't work as well if you're out and about, but it definitely is a time saver if you're going back to your room for a while...

I am thinking of getting some half and half in the mug and store it in the fridge for our morning coffee. Does anyone know if there's any creamer with the in-room coffee maker?

No can do. No milk or half and half available for the mugs.

Does the Swan and Dolphin still have refillable mugs? If so, what can I fill them with and where? Also, what is the cost?

Yes they did not change the mug design for 2010, so it's last years mug.
