Really old resort forever mugs....

Hi,

I read that Disney is starting some upc coding of refillable mugs. Is that true?

If so, what does that mean re the old forever resort mugs? Since Disney sold these as usable for all future visits, I believe that should honor the terms under which they were sold. However, I don't want the hassle of arguing over the situation. If they aren't going to be accomodated, then I simply won't bring them next visit.

Does anyone have information about this?

Thanks,
Dorie

If you purchased mugs at the Water Parks you can always purchase a new sticker for $5.00 which means you can use them each time you go back to Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon, however this is not happening at any of the resort counter service locations that sell the mugs.

The ability to purchase for $5 a barcode that would allow me to reuse some of the mugs I have purchased in the past would get disney my money....I won't pay the $12plus for another mug that clutters up my house so Disney doesn't get my drink purchases I just bring my own water, but if I could reuse one of my mugs then I might drink their pop and coffee (well maybe not the coffee)

We had dinner with another couple last night...huge Disney nuts, just like us. Well, the other guy said he had 'heard' from a reliable source (but wouldn't say what that source was) that Disney was going to start using a card usage system with the refillable mugs. That in order to refill your mug, you will have to have your card enabled somehow...now, one would have to wonder if you would have to buy a mug first, show the receipt and then your card is enabled?? But he said that you will have to swipe your card in order to get a refill.
But he also said that Coca Cola was pulling out of Disney....they weren't going to be present there.
Have any of you heard either of these things???

The card system sounds to me like it would cause major holdups at the drink stations and how would it work for someone just buying a single drink !!!!????I personally wouldn't object if they just charged a $5 fee to use each trip and slapped a sticker with dates or something on, they would have to police it though and maybe that is the answer just enforce the rules !!!

Refillable mug question...

Not sure if this has ever been addressed and I quite frankly don't have the time to read through 23 pages right now, LOL!

Taking my elderly mom to WDW for the first time in a few weeks. We'll all have refillable mugs from the QSDP. I am sure she will be unhappy with the gawky size/shape of the mug and prefer her coffee out of a regular mug. Is it OK to get coffee in her mug and then back at the table pour it into her regular mug that we bring from home?

I would assume so since the mugs are included for us, not like we're stealing the coffee! Just wondered if this would be frowned upon. Thanks!

I can't see a problem with that. I really don't like drinking from the plastic either.

I don't see any problems doing that.

Stupid question but what's the rate on the resort mugs right now? It used to be $12.99 but I read somewhere that it's now $13.99. I haven't bought any in awhile so I'd like to know in advance of our trip Dec 2-5. Thanks.

I read on Allearsnet that the price was now $13.99 so I would assume that's what they cost now.

[QUOTE=kwmyers01;38686281]I go to Disney every year in September. We were at the Beach Club pool and there was a person (waitress) walking around taking drink orders etc. I overheard her explaining to a guest that if they purchase the mugs then they can be reused forever. After the waitress person walked away I immediatly stopped her for clarification. She said that there was a recently undisclosed policy of being able to reuse the mug year after year. I was delighted to hear this since it was coming from a Disney employee. If the Disney employee was incorrect then she was misleading folks that she was selling the drinks

I also feel that if an employee tells you misinformation you should still be able to do whatever they tricked you into thinking. That is Disney's fault for not properly training their employees.

The refillable mug designs don't change that often and they aren't seasonal. The mugs for sale now and next month should continue to be the red Celebrate mugs used for the last two years.

The only thing that may change soon (I haven't been keeping up with the refillable mug thread) is that we may see a "Let the Memories Begin" mug design soon if not early 2011.

Just a reminder that this is a FAQ thread, not a debate thread (you can tell by the words "no debate" in the thread title). Posts that argue the validity and/or existence of Disney's policies on refillable mugs will be deleted. Posts that quote deleted posts will also be removed.

We're trying to keep this thread a useful source of information on the refillable mug program.

I'm still crossing my fingers that with so many mugs being given away due to free dining, Disney will use up all those OLD mugs and will release the new design before we get there mid-December. A girl can hope...........
