Do you think a hard straw from say a Starbucks cup, the re-useable ones, would fit in the mugs?
Its a good point about bringing your own straws, especially if you are staying on AKL or AKV property, or AKP as straws are banned property wide there due to animal conservation.
Its just a small thing, but we stayed at AKL last year and my 2 yo had the hardest time with those paper straws (that soggy and fall apart immediately). Bringing my own, or better yet a reusable one would've saved many dirty shirts!

Question Split trip 2 DDP does that mean 2 mugs??

We have a mini trip w/regular DDP for 3 days before our 13 day free dining plan trip starts with the new process does this mean for the 3 of us we shall be coming home with 6 mugs at the end of 16 days?? it will be at the same resort the whole time and I was just wondering...

It's kind of up to you. With the first leg of you trip you will get mugs with the DDP. The mugs you get with the DDP are defaulted to "length of stay". "Length of stay" mugs are defaulted to 14 days. So those mugs you get first will be good for 14 days. So you can either get 3 new mugs when you start the 2nd leg of your trip. Or on day 15 bring your mugs to the food court with your confirmation number from your free dining leg and they will activate them for the rest of your stay.

Yes, you'll get 2 mugs, as dansdad explained above. I'm curious how you'll be handling tickets?

Yes, extra mugs! We had multiple reservations with dining plans last month. I picked up the last set of mugs on our check out day. I told them not to bother activating them. They are great souvenirs or gifts for people at home.

By tickets do you mean park tickets? We have a 10 day single park w/water park add on for the main trip and the quikie we have a 1 day for DHS to get DDP and our down day will be Hoop de Doo cause arrival day is always tea and DTD!

Thank you all for your responses I was curious how it will be handled!

I was wondering how you were handling so many days at WDW with the 2 required ticket purchases. Sounds like you need 11 park days, no way around it except AP.

Do the designs change annually?

They have not been changing annually, no. The previous design, with lid color variations and then the addition of "RapidFill" labeling, was used from February 2011 until February 2014.

No predictions on how long this new design will be used.

One night room only

Hi, I have a room only reservation for Aug. 30th. Then we have a package with free dining Aug. 31st. through sept 7th. Would the mugs be activated for the day of our room only (the 30th) or start when our package starts on Aug. 31st Thanks!

You can't start any aspect of a Dining Plan until the day you check in for that package - so your ability to obtain the included mug, and so fill it, would start 8/31.
