We noticed during our last stay at Pop they did the same thing ... thought that it was very odd they wrapped everything in plastic wrap

Well, there have been posters in the not so distant past who were suggesting taking jelly and such from the food court, in order to add to their room supplies. Maybe there is a lot of that going on, and Disney took steps to prevent it.

(Only mostly kidding)

I do think it stinks that they don't leave the drink station open. Maybe because they don't want to pay a CM to man it in case of issues?

Is it true that the refillable mugs are now given with the dining plans?

Does anyone have any stories of guests showing up with non-RFID mugs and desperately trying to get the fountain to work? I would love to see

After my stay at POP 2 weeks ago, I can't wait until they introduce RFID everywhere.

*******
Sorry for the Rant, but, here it goes:
I read A LOT on these boards about the abuse at the fountains, and I was still unprepared at the amount of people just using whatever liquid container they had handy.

I'll give some the benefit of the doubt of possible confusion on the official refillable mug policy and old mugs, I'll ignore that, but...

...Seriously? Using empty plastic water bottles, empty Tropicana OJ bottles (filling up three at a time while holding up everyone behind you with REAL mugs), then letting your husband top up his Univerisal Studios mug (those mugs are huge!). I also saw kids using their Disney themed water bottles.

SMH!

Yes, starting with the 2012 plans. The regular Dining Plan will start including credits for the refillable mugs.

In 2011 the quick service and deluxe dining plans have the refillable mug credits, but not the regular dining plan.

I know you're not supposed to use the refillable mugs at other resorts, but what about at the 3 All Stars? We'll be staying at ASMo, and will likely spend some time at ASMu (we have family staying there at the same time). I know you can pool hop between those 3 resorts, so I'm assuming you can "mug-hop" too?

Thanks!

Since the All Star Sports/Music/Movies are sister resorts you can use the mugs at any one of their Quick Service locations.

Except now that Sports has the RFID chip in the mug for their fountain..mugs that don't have the chip won't work at their fountain. They only sell the chipped mugs at Sports, so if you buy your mugs from Music or Movies, you won't be able to use the Sports fountain.

But if you buy your mug at Sports you can use it at Movies and Music, correct?

Depends on what you got in the spring, how early it was. If they were still selling the red Celebrate Today mugs, then yes they have changed. But if you got the "fab five" at the pool design -- which I'm guessing you did in the spring -- then no, they have not changed. They don't change the mug designs that frequently.

Here's what they are selling now, with black instead of yellow lids:

So, if we are going February 2012, will we get a mug included with regular dining?

Thanks in advance!
