Pipe cleaners of different colors twisted onto the mug handles works well we also went a bit farther and did threaded onto it bead letters and then people had their name or initials on it.

I like that idea and the kids would have fun making them too. Thanks.

I really wish they would change the mugs. It is kind of crazy to have so many of the same cup if you go several times. I was looking in my cabinet where I still have a bunch of the cups.
I mentioned to my daughter how we will be adding more to the collection. I joked that I wish we could just use the same ones. She responded "that would be lying, you can't lie in Disney world. It just would not be right" She is a teen. I felt like saying maybe we should move there then. LOL.

You are raising a good daughter. Keep your fingers crossed that she doesn't change.

I feel the same way, but it's a true ethical dilemma. I'm an environmentalist, and I think that buying duplicate cups is unnecessarily wasteful. But since there's no debate allowed in this thread, I just want to make it clear that I abide by the policy even though it makes me uncomfortable.

Check out this post, http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1219. For a short time some resorts had purple but they have been gone for a long time.

Us too... I think they over ordered this design shipment... We have been the last 3 years now too and have had the same mug Oct 2010, Nov/Dec 2011, Nov/Dec 2012, And now it looks like we will have them again this Sept 2013
Good thing we added the cruise to this trip now I will get a new mug there

I think you are right re over ordered. Me and DW wondered ( we just got back ) if there is a big warehouse somewhere around Disney full of them! Another thought was numbers of people staying were less than expected so the same amount lasted longer ( or is it proof that people are reusing mugs lol...)

I think it is that people are reusing their mugs .... Just not in a "wrong break the rules way"
I think people who have the mugs and are doing dinning plan and go yearly have all the mugs they could ever want and just take their from home and skip getting the FREE one that comes with the plan. Leaving more in stock than there was prior to it being free with the dinning plan

I think when they wanted to offer it in the dinning plan they upped the stock to buffer the extra and over estimated.

We did a split stay in 2011 with the dining plan. We ended up with 8 mugs by the end of the trip. We currently have 12 for a family of 4. Who needs glass ware??? not us!!!

I think we have 8 of the current mug and seeing it doesn't look like they are changing this one anytime soon we will have 2 more come August. Really hoping I'm wrong.

(I also have 6 of the one they had out for the year of a million dreams.)
