Again, that is just a rumor. As far as I know, they intend to keep mugs included in all dining plans.
Carrying mugs to the theme parks might make sense if you want to, and are allowed, to refill it at will during the day. People who only want a soda with their meal won't be happy if they have to take their mug to the parks in order to get a drink with their meal.

100% agree.

What I heard with regards to the parks (reasonably reliable source, but even they weren't sure on this) is that they would somehow work the MagicBands in, unlike the resorts. But if they attached a "mug refill" entitlement to the band, perhaps you'd be able to go to the park and get a paper cup when needed, and no need to carry the mug.

Was at Pop last week. My dgs used the water in machine to rinse out mug instead of sink (yes, we explained the proper method of using sink) but when he tried to fill with soda, he had to wait two minutes.

Hi zuzu310 - I was at POFQ and POR (split stay) for 2 weeks ending Sep. 3. RFID was up and running at both. I assure you that the water on the soda 'machine' is NOT connected to the RFID. I didn't have the mug until POR (5 days until my FD pin started); many CMs assured me that I can fill my own cup/water bottle/a free paper cup they will give you with water (and ice if you wish) as often as you like. One even said "we cannot deny you water."

I filled a dark blue 24 ounce water bottle daily at both POR and POFQ, confirming with a CM if one was nearby several times that it was ok (because the RFID clearly wasn't operating when I pushed the water 'spigot.')

So, no worries with the water that is one of the spigots on the soda 'machines.'

Can anyone confirm when you buy a 3-day mug, the days are day of purchase and 2 more days?

When I picked up my LOS mug on August 24, it was valid until 9/9 which would be 17 days. Odd.

I am not positive about the answer to your question, but I purchased our LOS mugs at the BC on August 18 and they were also valid until September 9. I wonder if that was a random date chosen at the beginning of the program and it will be changing? Everything I have read though indicates that it would be the day of purchase plus two more days.

Hadn't thought about it, but I believe it is the day of purchase, and the next X days, expiring at midnight.

Interesting that you got 17 days, since it sounded like there was a technical limit of 14...

Here's something I learned today...apparently, if you purchase the mugs at a food court that takes Tables In Wonderland, the discount is good on the mugs...not 100% sure of it, that's what I'm hearing.

It's always been good on the mugs so it would make sense that it continues.

I'm probably not remembering as it's been a while since I've gotten them, and had a TIW card at the same time...

But if you are getting a few of them, it can be worth the jaunt to get them at POP or AOA, as you'd be saving something like $3 each...

No. One "length of stay" will cover any contiguous stay.

Well, sounds like my decision earlier this year to give up all these beverages was a good idea, for more reasons than I realized. I'm thankfully going to be able to avoid all of this rapidfill business. Except for water.

Disney is getting so complicated these days... !!

Doesn't sound complicated to me. You drink a lot of soda and coffee at your resort you buy a mug. Fill it. Bring it to your table. Drink. Go back if you want a refill.

You have an old mug. Leave it home.
