Are the All Stars live? I'm staying at All Star Sports for ToT10. I don't usually buy soda, but I do drink tea (from my own tea bags).

By live I'm assuming you mean with RFID active? Also, does AKV include Kidani?

They were I believe the first to implement, although I don't know for sure that all three are active. Also, isn't Sports the one where the food court is undergoing renovation? Not sure the situation there.

All Stars are live. With the food court down at Sports, you go to the arcade, where CMs fill mugs for you. Not sure how that works for tea/hot water.

Yes, AKV really means Kidani. Even though there are some Villas in Jambo House, they got lumped in with AKL for Fastpass testing.

Mugs went live across each resort at once time regardless of DVC or not. I was at BVC when it went live for BC, YC and BCV at once.

Some of the new mugs don't say Rapid Fill. They may be some of the mugs used in the testing. Mine doesn't. But it clearly is an rfid mug.

I was about to ask myself. If it is green, orange, or purple, those are the RFID mugs. Pink, blue, or black, they are non-RFID.

CBR started selling the RFID mugs around August 18th, so I expect they are fully live by now.

At OKW does the soda and coffee close down at 11pm or is it open all night and open at 7am like it did before. Coming home soon.

We just returned from WDW. In general, the mugs worked alright. On a handful of occasions, the mug would not let me fill to the top and I got the message that I would have to wait nearly 3 minutes to finish filling it. Some of them would always say that the mug was not placed appropriately, even when a CM did it. Our mugs, despite being for all of us on the same DDP, had varying expiration dates (they were all past the end of our trip, but none of them were the same).

I think it isn't as bad as I thought it might be, but not as good as it should be. The same holds true for about all of WDW at the moment. WDW/Disney is not as bad as I sometimes think it is, but definitely not as great as it thinks it is.

Just completed our second visit to WDW since RapidFill went live. This time at POFQ for a 4 day visit with dining plan.

Picked up our Mugs on Wednesday December 11, and had them activated.

Filled my wife's, and it said valid until December 25. (Looks like a 14 day activation).
Filled mine, and it said valid until January 8! (Maybe they activated twice, getting 4 weeks!?)

Are other people seeing ridiculous extended times on their length of stay activations?

Yes, I did back in October when I was at POR. Very similar to what you're seeing.
