Here's what they are selling now, with black instead of yellow lids:
Dang, I was hoping to get something different than the ones we got in July.

Not sure this is the right place to ask this, but is it true that you get a free refillable mug with the Magic Your Way dining package?

Starting in 2012, yes, all the dining plan packages will include credits for a refillable mug.

For the 2011 dining plans, the quick service and deluxe plans included refillable mug credits, while the regular plan did not.

Can anyone tell me if the Boardwalk Inn offers Powerade at the refill stations? My daughter will be running several miles every day during our stay and needs her Powerade or Gatorade.

When I was at the Boardwalk Bakery and Seashore Sweets which are two locations you ask the Cast Members for refills, I don't remember seeing either one of those drinks available.

Are there any mugs that allow you to bring them back on your next visit for free refills? I thought I heard something around last February or March that said Disney was moving in that direction. But later possibly contradicted by the RFID program. But I wasn't sure if the RFID program just limited daily abuse of the system or if it also eliminated the possibility of owners bringing them back on their next visit.

Refillable mugs are only good for one vacation. I don't think that is ever going to change, as the RFID chips are being used to prevent this.

Thanks. Maybe one day they'll sell a "Lifetime Mug" for double the price.

They used waaaaaaaaaaay back. I think those lifetime mugs won't work once the RFID system is in place everywhere though. I guess they're lifetime-until-Disney-changes-things mugs.

Well don't forget as of right now the RFID chips are only being tested at the Quick Service location at All Star Sports, so there is no guarantee those types of mugs will be used at the other Quick Service locations at the other WDW Resorts. They could decide that the system doesn't work and get rid of it for good.

Right, but my point is that since they are actively trying to combat the use of the same mug over multiple trips, it's reasonable to assume that they are not going to do a 180 and sell lifetime mugs.

However, I can see them selling a new sticker with an RFID chip in it to put on an old mug. They can market it as being environmentally friendly. I wouldn't expect it to me much (if at all) cheaper than buying a new mug, though.

Soda not milk?

Is it true you can't fill these mugs with milk, they are only good for soda? What the heck?

Milk is not available to use in the mugs. Only Soda, Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate.

refillable mugs

Last week I was at All Star Sports and bought a mug with rfid. It was a little difficult to use with some of the soda options. I drink sprite zero and had a hard time getting it to work. They are very touchy also the coke zero gave people problems. i asked the cm for help because I thought it was just out of sprite and she ignored me. Another day I asked another cm and she said that they have been having trbl with those 2 buttons. The first time my daughter filled her cup it did not go all the way to the top and so she tried to put in more and it said she had to wait 2 1/2 minutes to refill again. Later in the week as I was filling my mug one of the evening managers was asking some girls where they got there mugs because they were not able to use the machine and they said at Music and they were told sorry but they would not work here. I asked the cm why they did not do all 3 resorts since they were sister resorts and she said they just wanted to try them at 1 resort to see how it worked out and they are still working out the bugs. It originally had a 5 minute wait to refill also when you get your drink a small square pops up that says your mug is good for 2 weeks in my case it showed the date of 2 weeks later.
