Unfortunately, your opinion isn't the same as Disney. The resort that you bought it at is not the same as every resort that you could visit. The mug itself has the text of the rules written right on the mug. The older mugs didn't have the rules written on them because the signs were posted right there and Disney probably didn't think they needed them posted right on the mug. They figured their error and corrected it.

yes, I know (that was me, not hubby Nebo posting, BYW)
when we buy a mug for our vacation, I have no qualms whatsoever about using the mug at a dif. resort if I am there using their shops, restaurants, etc or visiting for future stays, or to see the christmas decor. it states "this" resort. but I take that loosely. and if you ask a cm, they do too. cause I'll be darned if I am buying brand new mugs for every resort we stay on our trip, if we choose to give disney more of our money and stay at a couple, pricier resorts. or visit other resorts to spend our money, as is encouraged.
not the same at all as bringing back mugs from a previous trip. like I said, just my opinion, and I won't be losing any slepp over it, and neither shoudl anyone else.

So glad they added the black handle/lid to the mix. Last spring, we each got one and DH wasn't fond of yellow/pink/teal. Too girly he said. I think Disney heard us since the yellow has since been replaced by black. We'll be there next week and will get a couple. They should have 4 colors anyway.

Anyone hear about the new trial going on with the mugs and the chips that will only activate the soda machine if it is in the time you are staying? I just read an article on it, it will definitely stop the use of mugs from different years.

Though I agree that I have no problem using a mug at a different resort, during my stay. I disagree heavily about bringing an old mug back and using it. That is just WRONG and nothing pisses me off more than being honest and paying for a new mug every year and then seeing someone walk up with an old mug and nothing gets said.

That trial finished a little while ago, they've now gone back to the old system without the RFID chip.

Bummer. Is there any word if new mugs will be coming out for this year? We have the ones from last year and are doing the quick service plan again this year. I was hoping for a different mug

Using mugs at pool bar?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but during our upcoming stay at Pop, can the mugs be used at Petals Pool Bar?

If you mean refilled at Petals, I don't think so. There's no station there. You'd go into Everything Pop to get your refills. They are close to each other.

Hi

Hello all... I'm new,, just found this site Was wondering, the refill mugs that you get while staying on property,, can you get them filled all day in the parks as well? If so, how much? If not, do they have a mug/cup that you can buy and get free refills all week for the parks, as they do for the resorts? I'm so excited, haven't been to FL in 18yrs, and never stayed on property before!!!

Thanks,
Cindy

At one time AK had a refillable mug that you could get reduced price drinks for the day when you showed your receipt. But I don't think they do that anymore. And that was the only one at the parks. The resort mugs are only good at the resort you bought it at for the duration of your reservation at that resort.

Wait, I forgot about the water parks. They sell a mug that you can refill all day at the water park. Then you can bring it back on another visit and buy a new sticker for the mug (about $5 or $6) and refill for the day.

Thank you for the reply. Having stayed at Coronado Springs, which we loved, I'm imagining a longer walk to the main building than it actually is at Pop. We used the nearby pool bar for refills at CSR, as we were a long way from the main building. I see on the map at Pop that the distances are a little closer. Thanks again!
