Currently at POR. Got our mugs yesterday. Lots of people having probs with them. Ours didn't work at first. A CM tried and still didn't work. Took it to the cashier who said it was activated. After a couple more tries it worked. For some reason it expires Sept 30. LOL we leave on the 8th.

Thanks in advance x
Goods to Go isn't the pool bar. Gurgling Suitcase is the pool bar.

MouseSteps video on Rapid Fill with paper cups

Not exactly the mugs, but another Rapid Fill video from MouseSteps (Jeff and Denise) using paper cups. The video includes some new graphics on the displays and voice prompts used with the soda dispensers.

This new system is not a good idea..

Problems:

1.mugs are not working right.

2. The syrup runs out, and then you lock out from getting a different drink for 2-3 min.

3. Only two people can use it

4. If you have ice in you drink, you may only get a 1/3 of the soda next time

5. Some people like to mix their drinks

6. And the worst of all.. THE LINES!!!


So this what I see happening...
1. people filling there mug,
2. standing there (blocking the soda machine.) b/c they don't want to wait in the line again
3. pouring soda into a different cup and
4. refilling mug after 2-3 min runs out.

I would like to think people are not that rude, but I've seen a fair share of rude people at Disney..

Just arrived at Villas at Wilderness Lodge and Roaring Forks quick service still has the regular system in place. Only saw black lid mugs (same old design) for sale but noticed lots of folks have pink and blue so they must have them somewhere.

I am at POR and I don't think the RFID cups were working properly. The drink button needed to be held to fill your cup. I stopped and started my diet lemonade several times, then poured some out and topped up with sprite without any waiting anytime. Yesterday It wouldn't let me have any drinks for the longest time. and it says mine expires sept 30--I wish!!

More refillable mug information.

OK, I talked to the merchandise manager about the question asked about a split stay where first part of stay is at a resort and the guest has dining plan and second half of stay is at a resort without the dining plan. Question was do you have to buy a second mug since dining plan mug is for length of dining plan.

Answer: No.

He said any "length of stay mug" whether it be purchased as length of stay or it is a free mug for length of dining plan is good for 14 days. So if your total trip between the two resorts is under 14 days, you are good to go with the first free mug you get at the first resort that comes with the dining plan. It can be used at the second resort even though you do not have a dining plan there.

Secondly, somebody said earlier that a CM in the market place said that the mug you get with the dining plan expires at 11 AM (check out time) on the last day of your dining plan. The manager said that is not true. It's good for 14 days.

I think with all the "different" information out there, that the only way to tell how it is definitely going to work is to live with it. Once it goes active, we'll all get reports and I'm sure there will be bugs to work out with this too.

But the above information was given to me by a merchandise manager from the Marketplace so I'm betting its right.


I hope this helps.
Makes sense because we checked in on 8/25 and the rapid refill station said we were good until 9/8

There are two sets of mugs out ones that look exactly like the ones from summer of 2011 that were orange, green, purple that do not say rapid refill and disappeared rather fast ! And the new ones are the same exact color and say rapid refill on the mug ! All mugs whether they say rapid refill or not work on the RFID system . We have both and both were programmed trough RFID system at the resort. So my thoughts are these were the original RFID trial mugs which explained why those colors disappeared so fast and never came back until now because they all obviously have chips because ours were all working on the RFID system at POR just thought I'd share .

That's strange because when All Star Sports was testing it 2 years ago, someone posted a link to this video from the company that created the technology and it clearly states that you can do a mixed drink (they call it a suicide pour) and that up to six cups can be filled at one time. (I realize this company is called Valid Fill and Disney is calling their system Rapid Fill, but I would find it hard to believe that it's not the same system.)

There is podcast on here that talks about this. Only 1 person is able to fill up at one time. Unfortunately I'm not able to link the video on my iPhone.

dining plan w/mug

Does anyone know how long the refillable mug is good for when you are on the dining plan? I have read the mug is being activated for 14 days no matter how long your stay. Is that correct?
