That's a great tip! Thanks!!

Sorry, those August mugs expired last August. You'll need new mugs if you plan to use the refillable mug program. If you purchase the dining plan, you'll get mugs with the plan.

oh i understand about the costs of milk & juice versus pop....doesn't stop me from wishing!
what i may end up doing is fill all 4 of our mugs (we get them with DDP) with pop or whatever for DH and myself and then buy drinks for the kids as needed (we plan to get milk etc to keep in the fridge anyhow!)

I don't know for certain the mugs won't change before October but it's my prediction they won't based on how they did mug designs for the last several years. Here's what is available now, along with a blue lid:

Thanks for posting. I seen those on a previous post but wasn't sure if they had changed. I like the pink one.

This is confusing!

I've been searching through this thread trying to understand all of this...

My husband and I are staying at the All Star Sports 2 weeks from now. They no longer use the same mugs as they did this time LAST YEAR, correct? We bought some mugs last year the day before we left and refilled them exactly 2 times.


The new mugs have some kind of chip in them? The soda machine doesn't work unless you have a special type of cup? What if you don't get a mug and want to refill your paper cup? Do the paper cups have chips on them? Can I refill my paper cup the next day?

No, you are not supposed to. That's why they are "paper, disposable" cups.

Disney's rule is that the only mug you can refill is the one purchased during your current trip. No mugs from old trips, no paper cups, or mugs purchased somewhere else.

The rules for the mugs are written right on the side of the mug. If you used your old mugs only twice, you got a nice little souvenier to bring home with you that provided you two rather expensive drinks.

I'm pretty sure I read in a different thread that they stopped the test with the chip now, that they just use regular mugs like all other resorts.

I read that report as well, that the RFID chip test at All Star Sports has ended.
