I didnt know you could do that - we have a couple of mugs from about 3 years ago for one of the water parks - forget which one now - have to hunt them out.

Have to agree with previous posters - wish they would do that for the resort mugs - have so many of them now! At Universal, we still take our mug (Spongebob) and it's then only a couple of dollars for the 'barcode' so you can use them that day - only problem is that their mugs are more bulky and nore difficult to carry around (and pack) than the Disney mugs

I believe it was sometime in 2002 that the resort counter service locations were testing out the bar code system like at the water parks, however for whatever reason it didn't work out. So that's why we won't see them using that method at them.

Does anyone know if they are changing the mugs for this year? We didn't pick one up (or use the service) this last trip because we were hoping for a new design! My old mug is looking pretty torn up!

if they expect you to buy a new mug for every trip, they could at least change them more often, or have a few choices of designs. who wants to pay for something you already have?

The mug is just a by-product of the soda purchase. You are buying soda that comes in a refillable mug.

well, yeah, I knew that. and coffee and tea, too. but it's also promoted as a "souvenier" mug, and who wants duplicate souveneirs?

I just think people would be less apt to reuse mugs on future trips if they had the option of buying different mugs than they already had. Not just dif. colored tops. keep those to differentiate between mom's mug, dad's mug, etc.

but, there could be a mickey mug, a goofy mug, a minnie mug, etc, etc, (along with dif. colored tops) just a suggestion....

sigh!I did it again!!!

that wasn't Nebo above, it was me. sorry, dear. (again)

but hubby Nebo has our mugs on display atop our cabinets, and is hoping for a new design, too.

I know they have to basically "sell out" the old ones first. but.. if they put out slightly dif. designs for EACH current design, there would be more options. and there would be less reusing.

example: the year of a million dreams blue mug. instead of all the characters, have some of them be mickey, some minnie, some goofy, etc. you get the dif. colored tops seperately. Just a thought, to give people more incentive to go by the rules.

Well I leave 11 days from today....SIGH, am still holding out some hope of a different mug.

We went twice in 2009 (that is now 2 years ago people!!) and have these mugs.

I just know that by the end of Feb the new ones will be out and I will have missed it by just days or a couple weeks. That would just be WRONG!!!

Still hoping everyday....come on new mugs!!! Come on!!!

Great thread!!

I wonder if Disney is waiting for Oct 2011 to change design. If it had an Anniversary date on it, now that would be a souvin'eer'. We have 6 different mug designs from over the years since 1995. I would love to collect more!!
