The current mugs came into the food courts on 2-26-11. (Page 33, post #485 of this thread) There is still time. It's so funny how something like this causes so much anticipation, and I love it.

No joke! I'm not even sure I'm going to get one and I'm all 'is it here yet? is it here yet?'

I read the first page and back up to page 179.

Can someone please give me a summary of the new mug policy? I stayed at WDW before but we never bought the mug. This time we will be at AoA (little mermaid side) and I think I will buy a mug or two.

I agree with a previous poster that this sticky should be closed and a new one started if the info given at the beginning is now irrelevant.

The most comprehensive description I've come across.

Thanks. Can anyone tell me how much is a glass of iced tea if I choose not to get the mug since I will stay at LM @ AoA and I was told it's not really worth it?

If I remember correctly, $2.99.

Do we need a mug?

We will be at POFQ in May for 9 days, and we don't drink much soda/pop.

I have a few questions… do the machines dispense soda water/seltzer? If so, do I have to pay for a mug to get it? Also, I see "tea" as one of the beverages that comes unlimited with the mug, but is hot water available? Is there a charge for hot water (if I were to bring my own tea bags?)

I am trying to decide if we will need the mug to get hot water & carbonated water… and if those things are even available.

Thanks!

The machines have uncarbonated filtered water that you can get with any cup or mug of your own.

Hot water is free as well over by the coffee/tea machines. If you have a mug or if you buy some disposable cups you can get all the water you need for your own tea bags.

I do not drink much soda so my plan is to get filtered water from the machines using my own mug/refillable bottle. I can make iced coffee with via packs for the morning and I tend to stick to regular water during the day anyway.

Thanks book girl! That is really helpful information.

We will probably do the same as you… filtered water in our own containers & I'll make tea with my own tea bags.

You can get hot and cold water, but not carbonated water.

I didn't read the entire 182 pages so if my question was asked before, I apologize before asking.

We have a party of 5 and we like to know whose cup is whose by the lid color. Will a lid from an older cup fit on the new RFID cups? Can I bring a black lid and a pink lid from home and have it fit on one of the new cups?

Has anyone tried this?

TIA!

Yes, we did this in January, it works fine. They are the same pool print cups just with the RFID added.

Yes old lids will fit the cups- we bring a sharpie and write names on lids to help identify too

I've been away for quite a while, and tend to be more of a reader than a poster.

I remember reading this thread lots leading up to my January 2013 holiday (vacation) waiting for the new image to be revealed. With the tests of RFID in mid to late 2012, we were all waiting for the new mugs. We are now up to 2014. RFID is now here to stay and the image still hasn't changed.

Oh well. Planning the late 2015 holiday to the "World" and I wonder if the mugs will change by then? Or will I be posting and reading the same things in 18+ months time?

I have not been to Disney in over a year, yet I have four of the mugs that seem to be current. They do not have RFID.

Do new mugs have RFID but still have the same artwork design?
