Also, if you go over your time of fills, the machine will post a message saying that you no longer have time left. needless to say, this will help with people bringing back their mugs from another trip...We truly got our money's worth.. as it was not under 90 degrees any day we were there....
Yeah - all I had heard previously was that you couldn't refill within a certain timeframe of a prior refill - you had to wait some (short) timespan before refilling...

We stayed at ASMusic...Sorry, I didn't make myself clear, you can refill it as often as you need or want to during your stay and once you leave you can't use that mug again...Yes, I tried to fill my mug with coffee and there was little to none in the machine so I went to another machine and I had to wait like 45 seconds before I could add more, not sure why, but, I had to.

This is the first I've read that coffee is attached to the RFID mugs. Everything else I've seen says coffee, tea, iced tea and water are not part of that.

We had the choice everyday and all day for anything that was at the beverage station...I would like to add, the new coffee is very good...I was surprised but so thankful as that "old" coffee was yucky....

I've having a hard time imagining all the new Joffrey coffee urns being outfitted with the RFID system right now. I wonder if the poster was just having a hard time getting the coffee to dispense and it has nothing to do with chips.

The Disney Food Blog detailed RFID mug report

Very detailed RFID mug report from The Disney Food Blog. Lots of pictures of the mugs and the soda dispensers.

That's what I'm thinking too.

Great link. That should reduce the number of repeat questions about the new mug system...Nah .

So the mug says

“Refills available at no additional charge atResort Beverage Island located in the resort that this mug was purchased through the end of your resort stay.”

But CMs are saying it can be used at any resort. So which is it?

This article brought up a concern. It says you can use your kttw card to determine how long the mug is for. But I have an AP and I am doing a split stay with a room only booking...

Anyone know if just simply giving your last day date is fine?

No I had no trouble getting coffee at anytime, however, the one pot/urn was empty and it gave me a dab of coffee. The CM explained to me, that I would have to wait 40 seconds to be able to fill my mug..the whole beverage setup is this way. It didn't cause me alarm once he explained the reason. I went to another pot and filled the mug and went on my way.

Ok just to be clear, so coffee is definitely on the new RFID system? So did you notice if tea and hot chocolate are also RFID too?

Yes, both hot chocolate and tea..iced tea as well as hot tea. However, I didn't notice decaf teabags or decaf iced tea.
