We will see. I'll be there mid August. Hopefully the system will be up and running at the Pop by then. If not I may do like another poster said. Go over to the All Stars to redeem my mug credits.
That's what I'm hoping too

Good thought, but I think they are just updating the food court there and then at the other All Stars because they are so outdated decor wise.

I think the rumor is that the new RFID mugs and machines will be put into place this month.

The food court at All-Star Sports is closing August 5th through the end of the year. Certainly we can expect the new Rapid Fill system to be added during that refurb.

But the report is indicating that the new system will be coming to All-Star resorts in July, so I think that means it's coming to Music and Movies this month.

So, we stay at OKW and will be there for a couple weeks Oct/Nov. What is thought that they would have new plan for mugs in OKW resort by then ? Also it was said that chip time changes after 11:59 pm and if i was to check in say 7pm and bought a mug i am only have'n a 5 hour window for first day. Will the resorts have the drinks station open till 11:59pm or close at 10 or 11pm like they do today. Will coffee also be included in the drink program as it is today.

If you bought the one day option, yes you will only have 5 hours of use.

That was not specified. However, I have a feeling they will close as they do now.

Mugs don't work all that great at OKW because the resort is pretty big and the number of refill stations are pretty limited. Instead, just fill your refrigerator with all your favorites and skip the mugs.

I wonder what happens with a spilt stay? We are doing split stay between SSR/AKV I hope I can pay once to cover all nights and that it doesn't count as two stays.

No, they don't make you buy a certain number. They don't make you buy any at all.

As answered above, if you are paying out of pocket you can buy as few or as many mugs as you want.

If you are on a dining plan, each person on your reservation/in your room will have a refillable mug credit to redeem. You don't need to use all those credits, but they are included with the dining plan.

Great thanks. We have a spilt stay with a cruise in the middle so I think this is gonna mess up the 17.99 deal for the entire stay!

According to the guy claiming to work for Disney in the comments section of the Orlando Theme Parks news article, the design will be the same (with an added logo) but there will be new colors.
