I've seen a video from the company that provides the technology that shows how it works, and the RFID chip needs to be in contact with the tray on the drink dispenser. I don't really see how they could do it with the band instead. You can watch the video here:

I got Lifetime mugs at DxLs in Oct of '99. The signage at the mug stand clearly stated that they were good forever!! So, yes, they had them in '99.

I do remember a sign.. And thinking " we'll I know we are coming back, no matter what hubby said about this being our last trip!" :-)
Your DL mug, Is it the one with ber'er bear and fox on it? My sister has this one too..
It's one of my fav.. Is there any writing on it? if so can someone tell me what it says, on them and if it should say lifetime? Or is it the fact that there is no writing on it.. Means it was sold then?

Thanks for any help in answering these..

Question Old Time Mugs

Hello,

We have ASSP Mugs from 1998 and CBR Mugs from 1999 with nothing on them except the pictures and logos of the resorts. Can theese be used as forever Mugs at the Resorts for refills?

They are short and fat and the bottom comes off.

Should I post pics of them?

People asking about lifetime mugs...a poster here contacted Disney directly, you may want to do the same.

They seem to be a hot button issue here, bordering debate. The WDW people could reassure you if it was a lifetime mug.

Its a good idea :-) , I also think if someone could post IF the lifetime mugs have writing on them? and if so where can it be found and what does it say?
This Would be VERY helpful..
Since between my mother house, two sisters homes and my home, we have something like 13 mugs from those years they were sold..
I'm sure only maybe one or two are the life time.. But it would be nice to know where I can find the writing and what it says.. So I know which are which..

That way everyone can just check their mugs instead of bombarding disney with emails about mugs...

Smile Old time Mugs

Here are the Pics I took.

As you can see, there is no writing on them except for resort and Coke ads.

You have to remember. Just because the mug did not have writing on it telling the guests the rules of the program didn't mean it was free refills for life. Every mug I have does not have the writing on it, but they did have signs posted over head that stated the mug was only good for the length of my stay at the resort that I bought it at. I have many, many mugs at home from 1997 until about 2004. Polynesian, WL, BC, GF, DVC-OKW, PO, AKL. Most of these have the removable bottom.

I do remember the post that they were lifetime mugs(back in the day), but we tend to go everyother year sowe use them as a souvenier for the kids....I do like the mugs and still use the older ones!...I do like how the newer ones fit in the car cupholders.....we did decide not to purchase on our trip at CBR-food court was too far away. this last trip at POP, 6 more cups(would have purchased even if we hadnt had FD).....Really hope they dont chip them, we filled them a lot-bit tea and cocoa drinkers!

We are staying at Kidani and my boyfriend is diabetic. I know there is a small refill station there, but don't remeber if there was unsweetened iced tea?

We Purchased our Mugs at our Resort, and carried them with us through-out the stay.......We stopped to rest at different Resorts to enjoy their food courts and play cards....We were SHOCKED to see people using Large McDonalds cups and Gas Station Mega Mugs at the drink station....I don't believe that Disney should go with the coded mugs, due to flaws in the system,,,but REALLY?......Big Gulp cups?....not nice.....

Most or all of the drink stations at the resorts have a Gold Peak Iced Tea dispenser, and you can expect one of the choices to be unsweetened.
