the thing I dislike most about the RFID chip is that you can't put it in the microwave. I use all my old mugs at home.e very morning I muke a cup of tea in one, and take it with me to work. I always say "everything tastes better in a Disney mug". rats

I thought you couldn't microwave the mug while you are using it at WDW because it would fry the chip, not make the mug unusable. So, once you get home you should be able to microwave it.

I guess we need the Mythbusters to bust that myth.

Somewhere up thread I posted a youtube of what happens when you microwave an RFID chip. It caught fire and burned (well the metal sparked and the other components caught fire and burned but you get the idea). We're thinking it's a chance that the mug would melt around the chip.

It depends on the chip, I think. I've seen those videos of microwaving credit cards with RFID chips but my mugs have been through the dishwasher and microwave with no obvious damage. I've read other reports of the same too, so I don't think it is a fluke.

What I'm more interested in than the microwave, which doesn't come into play until I'm home, is the dishwasher angle. The ValidFill web site FAQ says that the chipped mugs aren't dishwasher safe unless it specifically says so on the bottom, which the Disney mugs do not, and if it really can't survive the dishwasher I could absolutely see myself inadvertently frying the chip on a DVC or Ft Wilderness cabin stay.

hmm. we need an answer on this one. today I brought a mug of hot tea with me to tend bar at the VFW, but in my mind I was at Pop century, using that mug!

the other day, in my car, my tea tasted like the hot tea at pepper market. last week I was reminiscing about the latest pool scene! lol.. I love my old disney mugs.

Refill stations at BWV

Can you still get refills at the pool with the new cups?

As I remember I could fill at
-Bakery
-Pizza Window
-Bell Vue Lounge
-Pool

Am I correct?

I just checked at Pop, Poly, Grand Fla., and Contemporary, and all they had were Purple and Green. No orange, and no new design.

I also have put my mugs (yes the RIFD ones, we were there in October) in the dishwasher and microwave (in fact just did it five minutes to heat up some milk for hot chocolate that I am currently drinking) and I'm still alive and haven't burned down anything.... yet, ha!

I do have another question that after reading the first post am still not clear on. I am not trying to be unethical or start a debate.

We are going on a disney cruise in October, it leaves on a Monday and returns on Friday.
I am planning to stay at a disney hotel on the Sat and Sun night before as well as the Fri night after. We are not planning to go to the parks at this time but rather use Sunday as a day to explore the other hotels. I've wanted to do this for some time now. If I buy a mug at my resort (haven't decided yet which one that will be) do they work (meaning with the new RIFD chip) in the other resorts while I am just wondering around?

Also even though I am doing two separate stays would the mug still work on the Friday when we return (assuming I bought the 'for the whole stay' one)? What if I stay in a different hotel on that Friday?

Just purchase a 14 day mug. You may want to have documentation to show that you will be on a continuous Disney trip, but they likely will not ask about it. The new mugs are able to be used at all resorts. That is a feature of the new system.

Are we thinking if they are running out of orange, maybe they will be getting new mug designs soon?
