Unless I've missed a report the mugs haven't changed yet. The mugs at Easter 2010 were the red Celebrate Today ones, and those are still reported to be at the resorts. We're expecting a change in mugs sometime soon reflecting the new Memories them, but it hasn't happened yet.

I read a rumor on another board that a new blue and white "Memories" mug was spotted (but not for sale). It sounded similar to the YOAMD mug...

I've seen the term 'forever mug' a couple of times. What is that?

Back when WDW starting selling the cups they were resort specific and even (in 2000 and 2001 for a fact) were sold in the rooms (if you took one, they charged your room charge note in room stating good for this and ALL future stays I have one from 2001) Anyway the cups were sold for a resort specific and for all and any future stays. This stopped sometime after 2003 and now the cups are just for the length of stay and are not specific to a resort.

That explains why I see people still using the resort specific mugs. I'd just love to have a different mug for each resort so I could remember all of my great trips.

Yes, and for some reason on our last trip to CBR in Nov/Dec we saw quite a few! People were actually striking up conversation along the path and in the food court. First time for that. Many had them along with them, some said they had them at home and didn't bring. We even saw some from the very start that I never saw at CBR anyway. An older couple had them since the mid 90s and they were neat. They were with family that had the ones that I had. Yes, it was a kind of neat thing how they were orig. sold and now fun to be able to keep and reuse! The first ones I purchased were in CBR and still have.

Not exactly. Even back in 1997 on our first trip, there were signs posted at the refill stations that the mugs were only good for the duration of the trip they were purchased. It just didn't say it directly on the mug.

In the early 2000's, Disney started putting the words directly on the mug and still posting the signs over the refill stations.

I do think that Dixie Landing did have a "forever" mug in the late 1990's because the resort ceased to exist about a year later and became Port Orleans Riverside.

Disney's policy was and still is that mugs are good only for that trip they are purchased and at the resort they were purchased.

We have 4 POR mugs (2 fat ones and 2 cup holder size) from 2005 and we still use them at home. We haven't been back to POR since we bought DVC. That would be a nice owners perk - purchase a DVC forever mug. But that's another discussion altogether!

In the late 90's, when you bought at refillable mug at OKW, you had to pay for refills, but they cost $1.

I don't think it was a catch. All resorts (at least the ones we visited) had the forever mugs. You just happened to visit a resort that changed names. I bet if you were at that resort today you would have no issue in using your forever mug

Folks, a reminder that the title of this FAQ thread says 'no debate'. We are not going to argue the 'forever mugs' topic (again).

The purpose of this thread is to help those who are planning vacations and need to know how the mug system currently works. If you want to continue the discussion on the whens and whys of mug policy from nearly 10 years ago, please do it via PM. Any further posts on the topic here will be removed.
