Thanks
You're welcome The one mug credit per person gives each person one mug which is then for unlimited use at the resort. I think you can fill it up at the food court, or pool bar. I actually don't recommend taking them to the parks with you, since they can't be refilled. Unless... you refilled them w/ ice water. Ice water is always free.

Or you can pour a paper cup of soda into your refillable mug to help keep it cool when you are at the park.

Or take those powder packets (we like Propel) of flavored water or lemonade to keep in your bag and use with the ice water at parks?

Apologizing if this question has been asked and answered before. I have not read through all the pages of this thread. We are thinking of a split-stay at 2 DVC resorts. We will have 2 reservations at the first resort since all the members of our party will not arrive yet (so smaller unit is needed that first night). Wondering about buying the dining plan for that first night because I may be interested in taking my daughter to a character princess meal. So if I bought the dining plan that first night (reservation would be for 1 room for only 1 night), would I be able to use those refillable mugs for the duration of our split stay or only for days 1 and 2 of our stay since the dining plan was only purchased for that 1 night reservation?

Since all the Resort Quick Service locations sell the exact same mug designs I think to myself why would anyone who does a split stay want to purchase the same mugs twice on one vacation? So I say once you buy the mugs at your 1st resort then you can use them at the 2nd resort you stay at.

I did get the idea that a "split stay" at a different resort on the same vacation it would be permissable to use the same mug. But I wasn't sure what type of "rules" apply if the mug is obtained through the dining plan, especially like in my case dining wasn't purchased through the entire split stay.

The rule on a purchased mug is that it's good through your entire stay. Whether it's purchased OOP or via a dining plan credit, the rule is the same.

The mug usage isn't tied to length of your the dining plan; the only relationship is that your dining plan includes credits so you can get one.

New Mugs Anytime Soon?

We are returning in May and already have the mugs from last year with the beach scene. We really look forward to our new mugs -- any rumors as to when they will be changing them? I guess we could always just buy new colors -- but not quite as much fun. Any word as to when they might be changing them? And what colors have been available at CBR?

They probably won't change until next Jan/Feb at the earliest. Sometimes they are the same for a couple years and being this far into the year, they'll stay the same. If Disney has a new 'special theme' next year, they will probably change to match that.

I'm perpetuating the rumor, based on the past pattern, that we won't see a new mug until early 2013.

If you have a yellow lid mug from last year, you may be able to get a black lid mug this year.

I'd assume CBR has the selection of pink, blue, and black.

These colors exist due to usage at All Star Sports but I don't know if they are showing up still: orange, purple, and green. I got a green one at Pop last summer when they showed up briefly there.

Mugs

We just stayed at the Carribian Beach two weeks ago and the mugs had bright pink and aqua blue with Mickey, Donald and friends. We did not buy one but we should have. I agree that if you go to the food court or activities area then it is worth it. I think we paid about $3.00 for a med size coke.

My daughter and I each get a free refillable mug with our dining plan but I would think that if you plan on doing even one resort day and you are not on the plan that the $14.00 would be well worth it. They make great souvenirs for those travel mug users back home as well!

Just wondering if anyone has been able to use the 'forever' mug at All Star Sports where they are trying out the chip? Just wondering. Thanks!

There are no forever mugs. Except maybe at Dixie Landings before it turned into Port Orleans Riverside. Any mug without the rules written on them are not forever mugs.

Reportedly the chip test is over at All Star Sports. But from the reports when the test was running no soda would be dispensed without an RFID chip detected or a CM did a manual override.

If an old mug was somehow expected to be "forever" using this equipment then a CM would have to do agree to do an override.
