No. The new ones (since last summer) are the same all the way down...no longer smaller on the bottom. The design is on 100% of the cup now.

CanadianGuy - refillable mugs are also available at Disney's Vero Beach resort
(in case you wish to add that to your list)

That would be Sweet!! Is there a way to confirm. I have seen these mugs used at the reorts and assumed these people were breaking rules.

I would say yes because like I said before others have mentioned the mugs with no rules written on them are the ones which are ok to use again. However what I forgot to mention is since those are resort logo mugs you can only use them at the resort where you purchased them at, although I am sure most people would realize that.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fit in our "regular" car cup holder without tipping a little since it doesn't go all the way down in the cup holder. The handle prevents it from sitting all the way down in there. Thankfully our cup holders come out to reveal "super size" cup holders (I guess for all the super size cups you get at fast food places ) and it fits in there better.

It would be nice if Disney changed up the designs a little more frequently on the mugs. I do realize that they order so much stock and need to sell it out before getting new mugs, but many people go for trips every year (some more frequently). I can see how a lot of people would be tempted to break the rules and just bring their mug from the last trip if the design hasn't changed. We have a family of 5 and it's not that appealing to have to buy five more refillable mugs that look just like the ones be bought last year (don't really need/want 10 identical disney travel mugs - although I would buy new ones - I'm too much of a goody goody to break the rules!). I would even think they could sell more mugs if they brought in less stock of each design and changed them up more frequently since a lot of people are collectors and would be after the latest mugs. Just a thought ...

If a mug was bought as 'good for life', it is only at that particular resort. If you bought one at AllStar Movies, then it is going to be good only there...nowhere else.
I have 3 good forever mugs from DxLs...I would assume that I could bring them back to POR and use them again, even though the name changed. But would I? Nope. Way too much trouble.

All I know is that when I bought refillable mugs in 1997 at the Polynesian, in 1999 at POFQ, 2000 at GF, there were signs posted over the mug stations (where all the brand new mugs were stacked up) that stated the mugs were only good for the duration of the trip at the resort they were bought. Length of stay only. There was nothing written on the mugs, but I was very aware of the signs.

Yes, I agree. In fact, in 2000 and 2001 the mugs were actually in our room for sale as for this stay and any future stays at the CBR! They were 7.99 each and if you used them you were charged to the room bill. In 1995 when I was at ASMu, the sign stated that they were for any future returns to the resort as well!

I struggled with this.

The Disney's "Mom's Panel" answered this question with mugs purchased before 2001 or 2000.. and while that may not be right either.. we could go around and around on this.. and never have a 'correct' answer.

Hence why in my post I picked 99 or 2000 and figured close enough.

In any event, no mugs sold in 2002 or later are the 'forever lifetime' variety.

I have the current tapered mugs from my August 2009 visit and they fit in our car cupholders nicely. I guess I"ll just get a different handle color this time, since they didn't update the mug design yet . I really wish they'd go back to resort specific mugs or update the designs way more often. It would encourage me to try new resorts if I could get a different mug! Do you hear me, Disney marketing people??

We are getting the meal plan with the mug so my kids will each have a souvenir. I just wish they had the hotel name on it like the CSR ones we got in 2008.

Up until a specific time last year CSR was the only resort which was still selling their resort logo mugs, because their dining locations are not owned and operated by WDW. However for whatever reason they then switched the current generic mug designs being sold at the other resort counter service locations.
