Agreed! My family loves those machines. It makes eating out that much more fun!

If you ask for a larger cup they will give it to you. We have never had a problem. Also most of the time they get the water from the soda machine so it is filtered. But it does still have the nasty taste that is Disney water.

There fun and all but i really could not see them In the resorts,unless they kept the existing despencers along with it. Can you imagine the lines, the kids will think there a video game. I would rather them use that money and set up machines in the park(if there going to have chips in the mugs) so we could refill them there.

Sorry if this is old new but could someone please tell me about the new RFID chips in the refill mugs?

If this is true I'm a little worried about what happens when the soda or hot coco runs out...
I can't tell you how many times on are last trip I filled up our cups and then took to sip and found the syrup had run out..
(It was at least twice a day)

If this happens, what do I do? Since I'm only allowed 3-4 refills per day?

There are not chips in the cups yet. They were tested, but have not been implemented. There was no refill limit during testing. The only limitation was the time between refills (I think it was 5 minutes). Cast members could override the machine if there was a problem.

The limit was only on the paper cups, not the plastic mugs. With the paper cups I think you were allowed 4 refills for up to an hour.

The mug trial was completed over a year and a half ago but it just won't die on the DISboards.

Thanks! I'm happy they have not gone with the RFID chip for the mugs.. What a pain that would be..

There was one time I was in line for coco and it ran out, finally got a CM to replaced it, then within 20min it ran out again!! Talk about people loving their coco!

Also can someone tell me what the lifetime mugs from all-star resorts look like for 1999? I believe we have one, but I want to be sure before I bring it back..

The were very chunky with a removable bottom. I think the two we have are a green handle and a purple handle. I can't remember if there was another color. I'm sure if you do a google image search you can find a pic.

I've been googling for 30min.. There are just so many..
But ours does have removable bottom!! And red handle... Happy to know! Thanks

Just checking but am I right an saying they are only good for the resort they were bought in right?
So since i bought all All star music, I can only refill it in all star Music... Correct?

It's a moot point since they haven't implemented it, but the RFID chip was only tied in to the soda machines, not the cocoa, tea and coffee dispensers.

I'm looking forward to the new design too. From a marketing standpoint, it makes sense for them to exhaust the current design before putting new ones out, so it may not be easy to pinpoint a release date. I hope someone posts a pic on here once they do come out.

In 1999, WDW did not have lifetime mugs. I got mugs before that and they were limited to the length of my stay at the resort I bought it at.

As for RFID, with the new wrist bands, how difficult will it be to put mugs on those wrist bands? Shouldn't be any problem at all. If they can put the dining plan on them, your room key, your park admission, why not your refillable mug as well?
