I can confirm by sight that All-Star Sports and All-Star Music now have the new mugs.

Colors are solid red, solid yellow, shiny blue (it looked shiny to me), and that same translucent purple color as used with the previous design.

ice, water (from soda fountain), and hot water from dispenser is free in any container.

Anybody but me worried about germs on all there refillable mugs coming into contact with the drink dispenser? I know Disney is concerned, because on its cruise ships guests must take a new cup each time they want more drink from the soda dispensers.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see how they come into contact...except at the bottom of the cup. You can not hold the cup up to the dispenser, the bottom of the cup has to touch the landing part. And there's probably 2 or more inches between the top of the cup and the spout.

Also, most of the refill stations I've been to have a mug washing area. I don't think there's soap, but some have a hand sensor water faucet.

The environment on cruise ships is different because you have the same group of people confined in close proximity to each other, so an illness can quickly spread.

That said, sure, we bring extra cleaners (just paper towels with soap dried into them) to clean the refillable mugs, but there's so many other things you're touching in WDW, I think the mugs are just one small part of many ways you can pick up germs.

I noticed that on the DDP plan brochure it says that the mugs are until midnight on the night you check out.

But I also have seen whispers here, but I apologize have not read the whole thread, that say something about 14 days.

If I am not on the DDP and purchase a length of stay mug for the 17.99 price, is it only good until midnight of when I check out, or 14 days?

I ask because we have a split stay and was wondering if I bought the mugs at POR for our 6 nights if they would still be good when we move over to BC for the next 4 days?
Anyone have any experience with this?

But, if by some miracle I was later able to obtain free dining for the 1st 6 days of my trip, I figure that mug would expire at midnight on the check out day just like the dining credits, and then would just have to buy our own drinks for the remainder. ?

In my experience, CMs will code the mug for 14 no matter how long your dining plan or length of stay really is.

That is what I was told too. We are doing a split stay as well. They told me to keep the receipt showing 14 days on the mug and I might need to have it reactivated at the 2nd hotel, but I would be fine.

During my stay last week, I could see on the RapidFill machines than my mug was good for refills through March 1, so it was a 14-day activation. Too bad I'm not there anymore for those fills.

New mugs at e Poly arrived on Saturday. I so badly wanted them. Guess I have to wait until my next trip. When I activated my (old) mugs earlier in the week, the cast member told me they were good at any resort! This was news to me, and we did take advantage of that!

At Pop (as well as at most of the resorts) the only drink dispensers are in the food court.

POP got the new mugs on the last day of my trip, LOL. They didn't have them Friday night when we had dinner, but Saturday (Feb 22nd) when we ate lunch before heading to the ME, the new mugs were there. Well, at least I saw yellow ones. Didn't see the other colors, but they might have had them on a different shelf. Was rushing a bit at that point.
