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.
I am skeptical about the colors, too. I'm betting it is only orange, purple and green. Also, there was no mention of a time limit between refills. Have you seen anything confirming one?

I'm happy to see anything other than pink, teal, and black! We've got at least 3 of each color already!!

I love the purple and orange lids. I hope they have them next summer too.

How is this going to work for those of us that have purchased the dining plan already. Are they going to be valid for the length of stay?

I read somewhere here on the DIS that the water dispenser is also timed, same as the soda. Sorry, I'm just repeating what I read, I have no actual experience with this yet...

The mug shows length of stay as a purchase option, so if you are there for 5days/4 nights I would assume you get 5 days of mug right? Not 4 nites worth of dining like the dining plan does.

I have read that the water is only activated by the chip, but nothing about it being timed. Do you know where you read that?

The max is 14 days so I wonder if it's really 5 days or if it means 14 days once you pass 3 days. I will find out for sure at the end of November as I will be staying at Poly for 6 nights with a package and switching to AoA for 2 nights without a package. It would be nice to at least keep the mug, but we will see.

I love the new colors but agree with the previous poster that I wish they would have changed the design. Mostly selfish reasons because we already have 5 like this.

I also really wish they would let you bring back the mug and pay to "reactivate" it on another trip. It seems so wasteful to keep getting a new one.

No, sorry, but it was definitely somewhere here on the DIS a few days ago. I believe it also said the water was limited to 3 fills (by someone who tried it out recently at one of the values with a paper cup, not the refillable mugs). Sorry I don't remember more details.

It's been reported on the POR FAQ thread by Andre that the delay between refills will be 2 minutes. He also reports that water, coffee and iced tea will not be part of the RapidFill.

I read one post on these boards that said you need an RFID mug for water in the new system but several others that say you don't. I'll believe the several others.
