Does anyone know what the current mug is at Hilton Head? I have 6 of the pool/beach scene and would love a new mug in August at Hilton Head.

They were tested at All Star Sports in late 2011 through early 2012. That's as far as they've gone with it.

Has anyone seen yellow lately?

They only had pink, blue and black in February at WL.

Ugh, we have a lot of the current "Pool Scene" mugs from our last 3 trips. Of the 4 generations I have it's my least favorite design. I feel like it's been a couple of years since the last change (2011?) isn't it about time for a new design? I feel like they used to be updated every year-ish... or is that just wishful thinking on my part?

Here's hoping it gets updated before our SWW trip next month!

In the past the mug has been updated every two years. The current design was introduced in early 2011, so it's definitely time for an update. I have a feeling we won't see anything new till early next year.

You're correct - yellow was one of the original colors in 2011 but it was replaced by black during that year. Discontinued.

That's my thinking too, though I did hear an alternate explanation from a CM at Pop earlier this month... I'm not putting much stock in it, because we all know how well-informed lower-level cast tend to be and this came from a woman wiping down the mug station in the food court, which is why I didn't pop right over to share. According to this particular unreliable source, we won't see a new mug until they roll-out RFID machines property-wide. I thought the test at the All Stars was more or less a failure but with the rest of the RFID roll-out I suppose anything is possible.

Of course, if they do the RFID mugs they'll never have to change the design again because they'll have an alternate way of policing old mug use. For that reason alone I hope it doesn't come to pass.

Well, everything else is going to RFID, so why not mugs? I bet the chip will not be in the mug, but you'll use you KTTW or band.

That could be a good thing, especially if they take the opportunity to offer a refill plan as a room/package add-on without having to purchase the physical mug. And it would probably be more stable than the in-mug chips, which as I understand it were not as durable as expected under actual-use conditions.

I wonder if the mugs are going to disappear actually which is why they have not invested in new designs. They will roll the refill option out on magicband or whatever RFID device you have as PP suggested and we might use disposable cups by the machine instead. Like on the Disney Cruise line ( expect you don't have an RFID it is just included in the price of your cruise ) .

Whoa - interesting! I'll bet you are on to something.

A little off topic, but.... We are planning a cruise on the Allure of the Seas and I have been spending time on the cruise critic boards. Royal Caribbean has a soda package you can buy. The Allure has the "freestyle" Coke machines, the ones with the buttons with all the choices. (I've seen the same machines in Burger King and Pei Wei.) Any hoo, the soda package comes with a silver type mug with a chip in the bottom. Those are the only mugs that work at the freestyle machines. The chips are only good for the length of the cruise and can be refilled about every 10 minutes. It seems the chip method is working for them.

Oh that's interesting. Thanks for sharing that! I was wondering under such a system. Sounds odd but I am a serial 'soda mixer' I like half sprite and half coke in the same cup for example. At the moment with the refillable mug I can do this. I wonder if my freaky fetish will have to go?

This video demonstrates the system that was tested at All Star Sports. It shows that you would definitely be able to do a mix (what they call a suicide pour.)

I think what bugs me the most is not that they put something to restrict your use, but the fact that They (Disney) will still charge you a arm and a leg and restrict you on top of all that. I know its big buisness, but its still fustrating
