goofyy4tink.. we were at WDW in sept. stayed at CBR, BLT and AKL. we purchased our mugs at CBR and used them the whole trip.. no way were we going to buy 3 mugs for one vactation! not a problem at all.
If they get the mugs at all the resorts, next time we do a split stay (which is often) when we get to the new resort, I will bring the mug receipts with the date, AND our resort reservation confirmations to a manager if need be, showing we are on the same single vacation, and I'm pretty sure they will be issuing us new mugs if they can't put new chips in.

And you can use your mug for coffee.

Do you know if lemonade and unsweetened iced tea is available at the Wilderness Lodge? We don't drink soda, but we like tea as long as it's not sweet and my daughters like lemonade.

We'll have to get a Wilderness Lodge guest to answer definitively, but I would expect both lemonade and unsweetened tea to be available there. In particular the Gold Peak tea dispensers are pretty standard across the resorts and one of the choices is unsweetened.

We'll actually be at AoA and to be honest, we don't use the mugs until we get home so the chips won't really be an issue. But thanks for the info anyway because you are very right that it could cause an issue if staying at ASSp.

As AoA is a new Resort I wouldn't be too surprised if the put the chip reader ones in there .... As they are testing them now why put in the old machines only to remove them and update them with chip reader at a later point. Unless the test is showing to be more work and not something they are close to using yet...

I'm confused - does this mean that if I buy our mugs at ASMo and we walk over to ASSp, we won't be able to use our mugs???

As the way it is now, that is correct. I'd suspect that they would allow refills among sister resorts, like all the All Stars. But that is just my guess.

I have never bought the refillable mugs in the past because we don't really drink soda. But I just realized I could get (hot) tea in the mug and I do drink a lot of that. Will be staying in POFQ for two nights and wondering how this all works. I read back three pages and it seems like there are some kind of chips in the mugs now or something which limits usage. Very confused. Can a kind, informed person enlighten me please?

Yes and Yes.

Since you are staying at POFQ you probably won't need to worry about the chips in the mugs. Right now..they are only at All Star Sports. If you purchase a mug, you can get as much of the hot tea as you want.

The Tinkerbell Fountain Drink Machines @ All-Star Sports

How does everybody like the Test machines?

I liked them OK.

The one main thing I didn't like was that because the RFID mugs have to actually touch the bottom of the "dispenser lever" and there was always some "overflow coke,etc." on the bottom of the lever,the bottom of the mug was always wet with "overflow coke".

I did LOVE that Tinkerbell herself would fill my mug!Wow,she has to fly around FAST to fill all those mugs!

I also LOVED watching the reaction of Guests,who obviously were accustomed to the machines filling ANYTHING,try to fill their thermoses and various and sundry other drink containers only to find that Tinkerbell would not fill these non-RFID containers!PRICELESS!

This is probably answered somewhere but I can't find it, so I'll ask!!

Are the mugs dishwasher safe?

99% sure the mugs don't say anything on them either way about being dishwasher safe. I will have to check later. (I tend to wash ours by hand, just my preference.)

But, it's pretty likely they are dishwasher safe. When you look at similar products from the manufacturer (Whirley) they are listed as dishwasher safe:

Just checked mine, and it doesn't say dishwasher safe or not. I prefer to wash by hand as well b/c I don't want the design to come off. Plus I have seen that the drying cycle can change the color on them.
