it seems to me if we purchase the mugs, and walk the "half way mark" to the main pool, they could just fill it with coke or sprite from the "bartender's gun" and not make us walk all the way through the pool area to the food court.
now, I realize they don't have all the "options" coffee, tea, orange soda, coke zero, etc. but WHY make us walk a block or 2 further to refill the mugs we PAID for, with coke or sprite... when they have that ON THE bartender's GUN???
That would be nice if they did that, especially since I'm sure some people are dripping wet coming from the pool to the food court, just to get a soda. Refilling at the bars would be a good option.

not to mention, having to "cover up". just to enter the food court.
in my case, I don't mean "slinky bikinis"...
I mean "ruining any appetites!(although hubby assures me I still look good!)
really, now that I think of it...
us 50 plus year olds would rather not enter a food court in our "bathing attire" just to refill our mug... from the main pool! any other gals want to join in on this rebellion???!!!!

I think they just don't want to refill our mugs is they won't be able to charge us for a "soda" at the "main" pool.

at Coronado, you can refill the mugs.

at POR, it is SUCH a HUGE resort, it is ridiculous to insist you go all the way to the food court to refill the mugs. you should be able to get a refill of at least coke or sprite. at the main pool. I shouldn't have to PAY for soda at the vending machines when I purchased a refillable mug. (OR walk FOREVER, just for a refill, when there is soda at the bar... in the MIDDLE of the resort!)

A reminder that any feedback regarding the current mug program that Disney offers.. will be best received by Disney itself.

Nobody in this thread can take the constructive criticism and make changes.

Thanks,

Knox

I'm hoping someone can answer this as I have not seen an answer for this: I have the deluxe dining plan, so when do I get the mug? Do they hand it to you at check-in? Give you a voucher to go pick one up? TIA!

Just go to the food court, or wherever the mug location is at your resort, and pick one up. When you go to pay for it, just say you're on the plan, and hand them the KTW card, and it'll take it off that. The same way you'd use any other credit.

I would think we won't see a new design until 2011 when WDW announces their next promotion. However before any new mug designs can be sold at the resorts their counter service locations need to sell out of the current mugs, so they might still sell the same mugs at the start of 2011 before they can sell the new ones.

I am bringing an previously purchased mug on this trip and plan on using it solely for HOT water ( for my own instant coffee) and ice. Do you think this is acceptable?

I will not be using it for any soda, Disney coffee or Disney tea. It's simply that the room mugs are so tiny and the travel mugs are handy.

I don't see anything wrong with doing that.

I was wondering if the selection of drinks available for the mug is the same across all the resorts.

We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge in 2006 and if I remember correctly we were able to get hot chocolate for our refillable mugs. Are these types of drinks available across the board?

We are thinking of staying at Coronado Springs, and I would just like to know before I book if there are any differences in the drinks available between resorts.

Based on what I have seen some of the resorts have a different selection of drinks from the soda machine, however I believe Hot Chocolate is available at all the resorts.
