I would say thats true we were on the dining plan and arrived August 25th and our mug expired September 8th. The fourteen days also makes sense because I believe that is the MAX amount of days you can book Free Dining.

Yup! That's where I found it..

So instead of having 3-4 people on one dispenser...
Now you can ONLY have 2..

I thought they said 1 person at a time at each station? So station 1 on right side has 1 person & station on left has 1 person, not 2 per station. Due to there only being 1 screen at each station. I'll have to watch it again.

EDIT: I just watched the video again & it is only 1 person per station. So I guess altogether yes only 2 people at a time. I was initially thinking you meant at each station.

Yes I meant 2 pre dispenser. One per screen. However most hotels only got 2-4 dispensers.. So at most 8 people can fill up at once. :-(

(Here is how we did our mugs in the past)
In my family two adults could up with 4 mugs. We could fill all mugs.. (We all like different drinks)
So if we didn't need ice, all 4 of the mugs could fill up at one time and within seconds..

This now means we will have to stand there, scan in each mug, and fill them one at a time..
So what use to take us seconds will now take us a min or two..

Which doesn't seem like a lot, but multiply that by 2/3 of families at the resorts.. Lines are bound to be really really long..

Ps.
I thought I would add my sister is down at the AOA resort.. (She was only staying the one night before their cruise)
She told me every time she walked by there was a line 4 people deep on each screen..
Even when they sat and had breakfast and lunch, The line never seem to die down

I'll let you know how POR is when they stay a few days after their cruise..

Okay, that's crazy. It is the first thing I've read about the new system that is enough to provoke strong feelings/reaction to it. The lines at the soda machines at Pop were 2-3 people deep on my last trip just about every time I stopped there (morning and night) and that was with the old machine and multiple people filling different flavors simultaneously. Now a resort with 2000+ rooms has enough capacity for 2 people at a time to fill mugs? The line for a soda refill is going to look like TSMM at mid-day!

Wilderness Lodge just switched their mugs to the ones labeled Rapid Refill. Same design but with green, purple, black and orange lid options. No sign of the new machines yet.

Did you specifically see a black mug with the RapidFill logo on it? If so that's new news.

If they haven't switched the machines yet, the black mugs might be non-RFID ("old") still.

The WL still had the old black mugs last Friday. And then sometime during the weekend the new RFID ones came in.

I think that is the case (the black ones not being RFID), as they don't have black mugs on the shelf anymore, but on Saturday they only had the old black mugs. The machines still are not turned on, and there are quite a few old mugs around but a few people have been able to trade them for the RFID mugs.

I did not specifically see rapid refill on the black one. A family walked past with all the colors including black and I saw rapid refill on the ones that were facing me. Sorry!
