but the CS credits on the ddp do come with a drink, so no worry about that! (whenever we used ou food court on the plan, we would use our mugs for our drink, and the drink credit for a soda to use in the room for a "mix" for a cocktail!!!
Thanks smidgy. If I understand it then, when you are not at your home resort but are on a dining plan, the cashier gives you a paper cup as "technically" you are not allowed to use the mug from your home resort. If this is true you wonder how WDW can afford to give out the mug for free, when I am sure that people on dining plans eat more at other resorts than their home one. Maybe the answer is that the mugs have a higher perceived high value than the actual cost, which in reality probably costs WDW practically nothing.

Do all the resorts have chips in the mugs now? Or is it just the All Star resorts still?

It is Only ASSports... The other resorts including the other All Stars are still the regular system

It is just a test phase at this point.

As of today the RFID chips are still being tested in the mugs at All Star Sports.

Lifetime WL Mug

As far as I'm aware after 2001 they started to phase them out, I have no statement on the side either. I have a person on the Dibb forum who received an email from Disney and they verified that her mug from Dixie Landings was indeed a lifetime mug which she can use in the resort that took over from DL.

She sent me a copy of the email and it's true she did get verification from them.

Yes that's correct it's on the Dibb forum, she posted the email.

I bought my WL Lifetime mugs in 2001 and paid $26.00, told lifetime and verified by staff as lifetime also like you.

While that may be the case right now, if Disney goes resort wide with the RFID chip mugs, your lifetime mug will no longer be usable for fountain drinks.

Question Refillable and Widely-Usable Mugs at Walt Disney World???

Hi there,

I found this article on ideallydisney.com



"Refillable and Widely-Usable Mugs at Walt Disney World

Hey Disney Lovers....there is some new news at Disney resorts this year...

In all the years we have been going to Walt Disney World, this is the first year that Disney is allowing these refillable mugs to be used at any resort. Sold in the colors of pink, turquoise, yellow or black, these mugs can be taken with you for use at any resort on property.

You can't refill them in the parks but it is great to be able to take them with you to quick service meals in other resorts. We really got a lot of use out of them."

Did anyone hear about it? I can`t find this news in any other sources....
But it`d be great If it was correct

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but, does anyone know if they will be changing the pictures on the mug from the summer pool theme? Heading back in a few weeks and was hoping for a new picture on the mug if not I'll pick one up at the parks for our collection at home.

Unfortunately the mugs are only supposed to be refilled at the resort where you bought them.

We just returned and they were the same summer design. That's not to say that when you go in a few weeks they'll still be the same, but don't count on them being changed this close to the end of the year.

Based on the length of time they used the last two mug designs (about two years) I have been predicting here on the DIS that the current "summer pool" design mugs will be in use until early 2013.

Bummer! I thought they changed every year and I was looking forward to seeing the new design in January.

For the sake of convenience (and the environment), I wish they would have lifetime mugs again. I think they could get away with charging quite a bit for them (and soda costs them virtually nothing), but I guess they figure they can make more by forcing their customers to buy mugs each time they visit.
