Update from the World (8/17)....

Polynesian and Wilderness Lodge are both still using the old mugs (blue, pink and black) and there is no sign of RapidFill.

Can you use the RapidFill mugs at their regular stations?

We were staying at ASMusic from 8/6 to 8/13. The first day I noticed they were selling the "new" colors only ... lavender, orange, black but the machines weren't turned on. I noticed about a third of the guests still had the pink and blue cups.

A couple of days later I noticed the rapid fill was turned on but didn't hang around to see how it was going. It was a slow time and I was just running in to bring some soups back to the room. It did seem a smaller percentage of people had the pink and blue... more like 10-20%.

On the 11th we stopped by AKL after a day in the parks and picked up some of those zebra cake things. It appeared they were selling only pink, blue, and (maybe black?) there. I didn't notice the Rapid Refill thing at all but I wasn't paying the closest attention.


On the first day I had considered getting the mugs but I'm so glad we didn't. We were put in Country Fair which is the farthest from the food court. We only ate in the food court the first night and I picked up the soups a different night. It was weird because in my request for my reservation my first wish was "anywhere but Country Fair". However, we did get our connecting rooms and that was good. We had a car anyway so we didn't have to make the haul often. We drove to the parks except Magic Kingdom (that one is always easier to take the bus IMO.)

I don't know officially but I would certainly think so as they are sold with they idea that you can use them at any resort... hence the higher price.

The new colors are lavender, orange and green. Black is one of old colors. They may have been selling old and new mugs.

noahdove, what we really want to know is if the non-soda dispensers are using any kind of video display or automatic filling system. The news and expectation is that only the soda dispensers have this technology, which the coffee, iced tea, and hot chocolate dispensers are still just manual fill not tied to an electronic RFID chip.

If you're just telling us that you can use a mug and get coffee, hot chocolate, and tea, that's to be expected as it's been that way all along.

What bad colours! They likely won't appeal to many people. Black, blue and pink were far more appealing IMO

Do you happen to know which resorts are selling the new mugs, and do you have to be staying there to buy the new ones?

Youngest DS and DH's favorite color is orange, and they would LOVE one or two! Lol

I don't drink a lot of soda. But, on vacation I like to have a Diet Coke for dinner at Pop Century. Will I be able to buy a drink in a paper cup or is that gone now? I'm guessing it will have to be in a purchased bottle or can?

I'm thinking I should just bring a couple of sodas from home.

I'm currently at Port Orleans French Quarter and they have the purple, green and orange cups, none of the old colors. The RFID isn't on yet though.

I read somewhere about the cup couldn't be programmed for more than 14 days, so what happens if we're staying longer? We're staying for 21 nights, with QSDP that includes the cup for the length of stay...

If we have to have the same picture I'm pretty excited by these colors. Orange is DS's favorite color and I love green.

My understanding is length of stay is a price but after the 14 days a CM need to added the remaining days to your mug for you vacation. They re-scan it i guess.
