Oh Well. At least I can get a new color! My DD will want me to get the orange so that is good! Thanks!

I think that the very early mugs purchased up through a certain year (was it 1998?) should be honored as lifetime. That's how they were sold at that time, and there probably aren't that many still out there people are willing to keep using.

The mugs themselves cannot be used because the machine will not operate unless your mug or cup has a chip. Everything at WDW has always been a matter of "subject to change". I'm sure there was fine print somewhere that covers Disney from any type of lawsuit regarding those mugs. Otherwise, they would find a way to honor them.

I am happy to say that I took my old mug and just used it for coffee and hot chocolate since those machines are not RFID'ed. I am not a soda drinker AND I reused my water bottle with the water dispenser on the Powerade button. I felt like such a rebel. We did purchase a new refillable mug for hubby but got my 20% off that mug using my Tables in Wonderland card. We also shipped a case of bottled water from Amazon directly to Pop. I still see ways to save money.

A "rebel" is not the word I would use, but whatever. I don't know that I've ever read a post admitting that someone was "happy" to get away with theft. How do you justify taking something you didn't pay for, and then brag about it??? Wow...

If I microwave it will it cause actual damage to the mug itself? DH puts our older Disney mugs in the microwave all the time, so if that will be an issue with the new ones, we'll have to be careful...

Well RFID has metal circuits so I reckon it'll spark and melt the cup, and maybe cause the microwave itself to short out. If you have a really long extension cord and a recorder you might get a really good youtube out of it.

Can I do this?

We have not been to WDW in 8 years, well before the new mugs. On our prior trip I would take all 4 of our family's mugs down in the morning to get drinks and bring them back to everyone in our room. Can I do that now with the new mugs? Can I refill my mug and the other mugs of the people in our party?

Just to clarify - I am not trying to steal anything! I just want to fill each person's mug for them while they get ready in our room each morning.

Thanks!

When we got our mugs, the CM told use that if we accidentally microwaved it they could replace it if we still had the mug and the receipt. However, if we lost the mugs, they would not replace the mugs even if we had a receipt. So I wonder if there will be a surge in people stealing mugs?!?

Like many other folks, I take mine on our way out to the parks. They are usually left on the stroller. If we're by the pool, I leave them with our shoes and towels.

I'm finalizing my packing and had a quick mug-rules question that has never come up before. Is there a hot water dispenser at the drink stations, and if so, does it fall under the same free/unlimited rule as the cold water at the soda machine? Or do you need the RFID mug even for hot water? I'm not getting mugs this trip because neither DD5 nor I drink enough soda for them to be worthwhile on such a short trip, but I do drink hot tea. I'm picky about variety, though, and I don't care for the brand/types Disney stocks so I pack my own tea bags when I travel. Am I going to have a problem getting just plain hot water to make my own tea in the evenings?

The only thing that uses the RFID chip is the carbonated beverages in the drink dispenser. Water, hot water, coffee and hot chocolate do not have the RFID chip and therefore can be used for any cup. There is hot water there and you don't have to have the refillable mug to use it.

Thank you. That is exactly what I was hoping for.
