Yes, they do. And no, you can't. (Well, you can decline them, but they aren't going to give you a rebate.)

They are really expensive and cheaply made. If you LOVE the design then maybe. But I think you will find a lot of nicer, better quality ones in the gift shops.

I'm not a pop drinker, but I buy them for coffee, hot tea, ice tea & lemonade refills.

CSR mug- what does it look like?

ok - I like everyone comments
no ice tea - just good old water, h2o

No for another question - what does the CSR mug look like?
Maybe if I like the pattern, I will get it.
Or use the other suggestions and buy a mug elsewhere.

I think this thread is getting dangerously close to being merged to the The One And Only Refillable Mug FAQ and Questions Thread

For $15, I'd rather buy a different mug. I think they only say Disney Parks on them. Funny, but I saw the current mug (blue lid only) at Disneyland Hotel's coffee stand. They used it as the regular souvie mug you can get with a cup of coffee or soda.

You can get ice water at the different stands. They have to give you a new cup for sanitary reasons. They can't risk contamination with a "foreign" cup.

There hasn't been resort-specific refillable mugs since 2006. You can see what the current refillable mug looks like here:

I'm in the minority but I love the resort mugs. I have them going back years when they were unique to each resort. We use them for our patio drinks and kids that are over visiting always think they are cute. They also always seem to illicit a story or something fun when we use them as a family. When DD was transitioning to "adult" cups we used those and it was so great to prevent spills and much more fun than the traditional sippy cup. And they are practically indestructible too. I find we use our mugs more than anything else we've ever brought home from Disney.

Of course, it's subjective but we love our mugs.

Hehehe just for water. Hehehe. Now that I think about it you could always bring your own, but if you don't like their water fountains I suppose you could.

Should I buy a resort mug as a souvenir?
Would you?
I would not. I mostly drink water, too, and I drink a LOT of water. The refillable mugs don't look like they hold much.
