Yes, there is another thread with that rumor/speculation that a new design (or perhaps lid color) is coming since orange is out of stock.

We'll see.

Don't you think the "Refillable Mug" sticky should be closed. 99% of the thread is info pertaining to the old refillable mugs and is no longer correct, correct? Maybe take the 1% of posts discussing the Rapid fill mugs and start a new sticky.

Or they just decided to do away with orange like they did some of the other colors that were available in this design early on. There was rumor/speculation that the demise of pink, blue, and black were signs that a new design was on its way and we all know how that turned out...

At this point, I am starting to think that we're more likely to see a standardization down to just one handle/lid color than we are to see a new design.

That would stink. If anything I'd like them to have at least four colors to choose from so each family member would have a different color.

If they went to one color they would probably go the MB/fabric cover route and sell cup charms so that you could purchase your favorite character/symbol to personalize your cup.

Crazy question, but are the resort drink stations open 24/7, or do they close? I am staying at POFQ.

We just left POP and they were not 24 hours. 6 am - midnight.

Actually, I believe there was a change when the turquoise blue, pink and black were phased out. This is when the cups were changed to rapid fill, with the rfid chip in them. Also we now pay for length of stay cups. The older cups will not work on the soda dispensers.

This made me laugh, but would not be surprising.

I think we need a new sticky! I was looking for some more info about the RFID cups but the first post doesn't have anything.

We have a cup from November. Can we bring it back and pay to get it "activated" again or do we have to buy a new one? Just trying to be a little Earth conscious

TIA!

There was a design change with the change to RapidFill. Pink, blue, and black lids/handles have not been used with RapidFill.

With the change to RFID/RapidFill, the same pool scene continued but with a RapidFill logo added and with green, purple, and orange lids/handles replacing pink, blue, and black.

I know what we're really prefer is completely new design, as the pool scene has been used since 2011. But the color change and logo addition was a type of design change.

The only change in the design, though, was the addition of the RapidFill logo. Aside from that Disney has been selling the same mug design since early 2011. I have a ridiculous number of them at this point and would love to see a real change, but I fear Disney has once again embraced standardization and cost-cutting over the little things that frequent visitors tend to appreciate.

Have a question about the new Rapid Fills. If I want to fill my mug mostly with coffee and then top it off with low fat milk, will it let me do that? This will be our first trip with the new mugs.
