I was at All Star Movies yesterday and the signage read ... Select the number of days you want your souvenir cup activated and enjoy refills of fountain drinks, coffee, and tea at any resort self-service beverage station. 8.99 - 1 day/11.99 -2 days/ 14.99 -3 days/17.99-length of stay. Day consists of one calendar day. Additional days are consecutive.

We'll be arriving at the Beach Club Resort on 8/18. We have plenty of the beach scene mugs from last year and the year before. I'm assuming that there are no RFID chips there yet so I could bring my old mugs and use them? I know it is not encouraged but....

I'll also be purchasing a couple just to be honest!

Actually, I was there today and one of the two dispenser units was all set up for the computer chip. It acknowledged that my mug was good until 8/26 (I had purchased the length of stay option). It filled my mug and you could view the screen that stated FILLED but it didn't cut off and Coke spilled over. A glitch I guess. I was also at Storm along Bay, Boardwalk and Pop Century and they weren't using the chip technology yet.

They all had the new dispenser set up except Boardwalk Bakery but they weren't activated yet I mean.

Is there a minimum amount of time between refills? The mugs aren't exactly big and DH has been known to drink a mug and go right back to refill.

From what I read, yes there is. If I remember correctly, it was 3 minutes between refills of the same mug.

I'm assuming that what tmarquez meant is that the RapidFill technology was turned off, not the drink dispensers. If you check out this video, you'll see what I mean:

What is the time between refills with the rfid mug?

It seems like the roll out of the new mugs is underway. I know All Stars had them last week and PO is selling the new mugs, too. I just missed the new colors, although I have those colors from a previous trip. Anyway, for those who have or are currently using the new mugs, is there a time between refills? If so, how long is it? Rumor had it around five minutes.

Any sign of this at AK Lodge yet?

I really don't understand how they can stagger the roll out of this. It just seems so unfair (cost difference) if you are staying at ASM. Unfair.

The RUMOR (not at all confirmed) was that it would be 5 minutes between refills of the SAME individual mug.

We are big water drinkers so it probably does not matter to us. Just asking.

WDWMagic article with photos of purple, green, and orange lid RapidFill mugs

Here's an August 14 article on WDWMagic. At the bottom of the article there are photos of the RapidFill mugs. Same pool scene but with RapidFill logos. Lids in the photos are the same purple, green, and orange used during the 2011 RFID test at All-Star Sports.

The article text says "Lids are in a range of colors, including black, green, orange, pink, purple, teal and yellow." This would be really interesting new info that all the variations on lid colors used with the pool scene that appeared (and disappeared, like yellow) since 2011 would be coming back along with the RapidFill logo. Not sure this is accurate until we see photos or get reports.
