Here's the current cross-resort design with the black and pink lids. There is also a blue lid available.

Do they update the cups yearly, or every other year kind of thing?

They have been on an every two years sort of schedule for the last three designs, so if they stick with that, a new design should appear in early 2013.

Wondering if anyone has ever gotten them to give you the mugs early for split stays. We recently gave up free dining for 11 nights so we could do a split stay at AoA and CSR. The package doesn't start until CSR but we will have 4 days at AoA prior. Wondering if one could use the "length of stay" to request mugs even if switching resorts during stay. Doesn't make much sense to pay $60 for mugs 4 days before receiving them with the package?

I doubt it. It is part of the dining portion of your package. You have to have that resort's room key to pick them up.

You aren't paying for refillable mugs for the first part of your stay. So you won't get them unless you purchase them. It would be like saying you will be on the dining plan next year, could you get your mugs this year to use?

If you buy them at the Boardwalk, keep your receipt. When you refill them at Boardwalk Bakery, they just put it in a paper cup. They don't take your actual mug. So we kept our receipt, and when we were walking back from Epcot, stopped in the bakery, showed them our receipt for the mugs, and they gave us a soda. Worked great, since it meant we didn't have to truck back up to the room to get the mugs.

4?????

I just looked at my voucher booklet that I got in the mail. Oddly it says that each person in my group gets a refillable mug! Could this be a misprint?? I swear the reservationist said one per family. As far as Im concerned it says one each so I will try to get that.

No misprint. Each person in your group receives a refillable mug.

Yeah its definitely one per person. They don't expect you all to share one mug! In my family, that would be asking for a fight!

How many people keep their receipts for the mugs with them? Are the receipts really necessary to get your refills? Is this the only place that requires the receipts?

You don't need your receipt to get a refill if you have the mug with you. The poster referring to using a receipt was referring to a particular place at the Boardwalk that does not put the drinks into the mug..they give you a paper cup because it is not a self fill station and they cannot take everyone's mugs behind the counter for sanitary reasons. Most of the time people stopping at this one placec can just pour the paper cup contents into their mug, but in the case that they don't want to take the mug to the parks with them, they just have the receipt and use the paper cup.
