Just looking at them when using brings a fun type feeling back plus a lot more went into designing them!
Me too - I did notice that the older, resort-specific mugs were better quality. That said, I have one that the handle broke off - but now it is perfect for my car cup holder and outside of the handle, it works great!

Yes, have fun at WL, it's really my favorite resort for theming. Many on the boards don't see the need or don't know that way back these cups were advertised and even in the first few years left in the rooms, with a paper stating price and the fact that they were good for all future visits to the resort on them. I know they were still in the rooms in 2001, we had a group of 10 and we did end up with quite a few even though we had our own 3! That's why I have so many CBR ones

I am unhappy we don't have a new mug design yet either. I plan on buying the same mugs this year but taking my old mugs. I will put my new unused mugs in my suitcase and give them as teacher presents when we return and use my mugs from last year to put my drinks in as they are the current mug. This eliminates the wastefulness in my mind. I can use the unused mugs as gifts and still pay for my weeks worth of soda.

Mugs

We go between two and 3 times a year. What i have noticed is that the mugs change for the seasons. I have had no problem using the mugs over and over. I have used the summer ones in the winter and vice versa. If you wash the mug in the dishwasher, the paint starts to wear off.

I only wash mine in the dishwasher at home and they are all still like new and some of mine are over 10 years old.

That is such a great idea. We can give brand new mugs with the tabs still attached to our pet sitters.

That's so funny. When we went to POFQ in November, I had no idea that some of the mugs were forever mugs. I remember seeing some folks in the food court with ancient looking mugs, and thinking- wow, someone's cheap. LOL

Makes more sense now.

Magical Express Driver

When my family was leaving, the driver of the magical express bus, which I know is a Mears Transportaton Employee, made a comment to the effect that anyone who bought the mugs that the mugs were good forever and that no disney employee was going to "offer" that information, but was a fact.

The Magical Express bus drivers aren't even Disney Cast Members. Disney contracts their company for the bus service. That's not a fact at all and, basically, a downright lie.

Here is my experience with the "forever mugs." DH and I had bought the resort-specifc refillable mugs for several trips in a row. One trip, the CM told us that they are "forever mugs." I don't recall that particular term, but the CM said that they could be used for "as long as the building was standing."

I think we were able to travel back for one more trip and use the mugs until Disney changed policies, and have the current type of mugs, that can only be used for your current stay.

With that being said, I will continue buy two NEW mugs for my DH and me, 'cause I'm just a follow the rules type of person, and DH, being the rebel he is, insists that he wants to use his resort specific "forever mug." So, I guess when we refill our mugs, will be carrying 3 mugs total: the 2 new ones, and the one forever mug, and walk out with a new one filled, an old one filled, and a new one empty - oh the fun we have at Disney!!!

Funny, but the only thing is that the 'forever' at that resort mugs use isn't breaking a rule. That was how they were sold. We, too, have quite a few and many for the CBR (visited in 2001 and we had 10 people!)
