I have just read the information, included in the link above, about the new refillable mug.

Let me see if I have this straight. I am not a soda drinker. I normally drink hot tea. Yes, even in hot weather. I can purchase the mug by paying the one day price, and then the mug will be available for me to get "Hot Water" at all of the resort locations. I will have a nice souvenir, and I will be able to have my tea. I plan on packing my own tea bags. Sugar, and creamer are always readily available.

I like the look of the mug, and it looks lightweight enough to put in my backpack for use in the themeparks for drinking water at drinking fountains.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for the reply. I will be packing my favorite brand of tea, and I always love coming home from Disney World with at least one souvenir.

Yep. The RFID technology is only on the soda dispensers.

Regarding tea, I thought most locations where you can find the new, real Joffreys coffee, also had real tea. Either Twinings or Joffresys...

what happens if we are staying longer

we are staying 3 weeks and doing a split stay. do we tell the people where we buy the mug our final departure date or do we bring our receipt to the second resort and speak with a manager?

I would mention it when you buy it and if needed I am sure a manager will ensure your mug works for your entire stay.

Make sure you keep your reciept for the mugs. The cashier will likely set it up for 2 weeks. When this time has been used up, take your mug to the cashier and they will reactivate it, likely for another 2 weeks. The mugs are good for all the resorts, so don't worry about the split stay confusion. I had my reciept for the mugs and reservation check in reciept with me, but she never looked at it, just renewed it for another 2 weeks. We were there for 26 days.

We have a split stay planned for Sept. between BLT (7 nts) and Vero Beach (3 nts). Does anyone know if our 'length of stay" mugs will still be good at Vero. I have read that Vero did switch over to the RFID mugs.

Thank you!

It is my understanding that you no longer to be a resort guest to purchase a refillable mug. So can I just request and pay for a length of stay mug and have it available for 14 days?

You never had to be a resort guest to purchase a mug, so yes, you can purchase one for any length you want.
