I was last at Disney in September 2009, and I actually have the mug with the design all the way to the bottom, so those have been around for almost a year now for sure.

I am fully aware of the great mug debate and the "rules", but I REALLY cannot see buying new ones if they are still exactly the same when we go this year as they were last year. That just seems really wasteful. I absolutely would have no problem with buying a new design, but will most likely NOT buy new ones if they have not changed. I miss the resort specific mugs too, but I'm sure its MUCH cheaper for Disney to buy bulk amounts of the same generic mug.

This is what I am saying - last August we got the ones with the design to the bottom too.

I would like to see a Dining Plan fashioned after the "magic Your Way Tickets". it would be complicated, (but then, so is the magic your way packages, and we all adjusted to that!)but you could purchase how ever many "credits" you choose. and use them however you like, for the duration of your stay. whether you chose to use them on Signature restaurants, other Table service restaurants, Counter service restaurants, snacks, or mugs. it would be YOUR choice.....and then we could al go see the fairy princess together!


According to disneyworld.com you do get a single serving beverage with every meal on the QS plan!

No problem there. You'll just need to pay individually for each of your beverages. Disney won't mind that either. You just won't be able to reuse those old mugs.

I have Wilderness Lodge Mugs that don't have anything printed on them about "length of stay" etc.. I also have newer mugs that explicitly state on the mug that it is for the length of stay.
I am going with my old WL mugs as I recall them being "forever refills" and if they weren't, they should have stated that on the mug. Also, we're staying at the WL this trip!
Should I expect any CM pushback?

They only recently added the text directly on the mugs because guests weren't reading the signs posted right over the mugs or on the beverage machine. You may be told "no" by a CM. Some guests have been told "no".

I have mugs from about five resorts that have nothing printed on them, but I do know Disney's policy. We started buying these in 1997 at the Polynesian.

I should probably add that I don't intend to "ASK" I just go in, fill my mug an leave, thereby leaving it at the CMs discretion to create a scene and potentially inconvenience other customers who may be waiting to pay.

exactly my point! make the plan cheaper, and don't include the drinks. OR don't include the mugs.
but, I went on to suggest a more complicated scenario, wherein you purchased a set amount of points, and could use them however you chose (CS, TS, etc). like, a "Magic Your Way Plan" for dining. (example, some of us staying 7 nights don't want 7 TS dinners, maybe only 3. you could purchase "credits" and use them how you choose, for sit down, signature, mugs, snacks, etc, your choice.)

You have a warped sense of entitlement.
I just don't get it! The cheapest things on a Disney vacation are the refillable mugs. When you start nickel and dime'ing it and are willing to steal a few cents worth of soda, I pity you. You are on vacation!!!

Actually, you'll be the one creating the scene and could be asked to leave. But it's your vacation.

Yes, we had WL mugs (they are the last we have that were the "forever" type. ) We did use them in Feb, no problem and we did see a few others with them. I guess WDW thought it was a good marketing method back when the cups were new.(the first one I got was at ASMu back in 1995 we have quite a few of the CBR since we went with a large group in 2001) Anyway, you can use the forever mugs. We actually had some asking where we got them since they are the largest and best insulated of all the mugs we have!

Thanks, nice to know I have a "forever" mug. That being said, I've usually just purchased a new mug each trip, but now that the mugs are the same every year at every resort, it just seems really wasteful.

Plus the older ones are a better quality, they keep things cold longer. We have many of the CBR ones and I do use them at home. We will bring them in Nov. We haven't stayed at CBR in quite sometime and I'm looking forward to it. We did buy some of the newer cups since we stayed at ASMu and didn't have 2 of the old ones and they really are not the same quality or feeling! I liked the resort specific mugs better. Just looking at them when using brings a fun type feeling back plus a lot more went into designing them!
