Yellow is back, eh? Interesting...so were there four colors to choose from at ASMu? Or more?

This year 2012 is the first year where all the dining plans include the refillable mug credits.

Right, not likely. Recent precedent for design changes is after the first of a year, with mug design lasting about two years. So my prediction is a new design early 2013.

Question Using them for water only

We're going back for another trip in August 2012 to PORS. Stayed at PORS in Feb 2012, and bought mugs really just as souvenirs, since we don't drink soda or that stuff they call coffee. I bring my own tea bags for hot tea. We just used them for icewater and hot water. I don't know if there is a barcode or rfid chip in the ones we bought, but I'd like to bring them back and use them for the hot and icewater again. But I would be mortified if there is something wrong with that. It seems crazy and wasteful to buy more plastic mugs or use the non recyclable foam cups they give you for water. Will I be shut out at the fountains if I bring my February Mugs?

Lots to say; I'll try not to stir debate.

1. Your mugs won't have RFID chips in them.

2. There are no RFID tests or implementation reported right now, but even if there were, I don't expect a chip would be required for hot or cold water.

3. Your mugs were only good for the length of your previous stay, so you aren't supposed to use them on a subsequent trip.

4. This is where I am at a bit of a loss, and afraid I'm touching into debate -- you say you are only going to use them for water. I don't think the purchase of a mug is required for the use of fountain water. So I suppose you could use your mugs for that water, but then again, you could bring any reusable cup if the water is free.

In summary, if you're going to be mortified, a quicker answer would be -- don't bring the mugs back because you're not supposed to according to the rules.

All colors everywhere?

Are all the mug colors (pink, black, yellow, blue, green, purple) available at all resorts now?

We are staying at Coronado Springs for Memorial Day weekend... does anyone know what colors are available there?

We already have all but green & purple and would love to get those as well!

There's 6 colors?? We're a family of 5 who always buys the mugs but usually brings 2 different lids from older mugs so we have 5 colors. I have always thought they should have at least 4 colors.

Do they have the refillable mug program at Disneyland too? We're going on our first trip this year. It would be nice to have mugs with the Disneyland name on them.

Yup, I remember seeing a pic of orange. Actually, the green, purple, and orange were the colors at All Star Sports when they were testing the RFID chipped mugs. Have they been spotted elsewhere?

I saw your question the other day but I have not seen recent reports that there are more than three colors at a resort at any one time. The standard set seemed to be black, pink, and blue, but those other colors do exist, and they may or may not show up at all the resorts. See below for more on this.

I don't know if they have the refillable mugs at DLR, but if they do I would suspect they are the same Disney Parks design currently used in WDW.

Yes, the lid colors that have been produced for this current design have been:
yellow, black, pink, blue, green, purple, and orange

The first set in 2011 was yellow, pink, and blue. Then it seemed like black took over for yellow later in the year.

Then at the RFID chip test at All Star Sports (now over) they had green, purple, and orange lids. Some of those colors showed up at other resorts too. I got green at Pop Century last August.

Yes, they have them. We were there several years ago and stayed at the Grand Californian. At that time, the mugs had the resort name on them. I remember you could get hot chocolate and they let you put whipped cream (from a can) on top!

CR mug refill choices

We are going to WDW for the first time in a few weeks and I was wondering what beverage choices there are at CR.

Thanks!

A couple of up-to-date refillable mug-related photos available in this easywdw.com May 2012 Port Orleans Riverside visit.

Black, blue, and pink lid selections (look on bottom shelf):


Soda choices at POR Riverside Mill:

I notice the sign no longed says the resort it was purchased. I'll take that to mean they are now allowing for resort changing half way through your stay
