The recent mug history is roughly:

Blue Year of a Million Dreams through early 2009
Red Celebrate Today early 2009-early 2011
Current Let the Memories Begin beach scene early 2011-present

Could you possibly edit the post or update it please? My stay at Best Western in the Lake Buena Vista area entitled me to a refillable mug as well. It might do some people good to know about the Best Western too, but my assumption is that they offer them at any hotel on the Disney property, including the separate brand name hotels like Best Western.

You may have gotten a refillable mug of sorts at the Best Western, but it wasn't a Disney Resort refillable mug. The Best Western isn't aon Disney property. It is just close to Disney property.

Some people have been wondering if the purple and orange mugs really existed. When we were at Pop Century in August 2011 they had black, purple, orange, green, blue/teal/whatever, pink and yellow. Here are a couple of pics of the mugs we obtained on August 19, 2011.

Just a couple of days after EpcotBill got his purple and orange mugs, I went to Everything Pop! on 21-Aug-2011 and the only alternate choice still left was green.

The last time I was in Disney was 2005.. I know.. I'm long over due! When did they start using a generic refill mugs? I love the resort specific mug. I collect them! They are my souvenir!
The generic ones started in 2007. I know this for sure because I went in 2006 and was able to get a Port Orleans mug (it was a single design for both POFQ and POR), but when I went in 2007 they had a generic design.

I just had a thread locked that asked the simple question of "are the current refillable mugs the same now as they were when we were there in August. We're going again this August - with the QSDP (and thus mugs again) and I was just curious as to whether or not we were going to be getting 4 of the same mugs or if they were different. I explained in my post that I did a quick check of this sticky (which includes 75 pages) and couldn't be sure of my answer.

I was told "Everything you need to know about the rules of Disney's refillable mug program, and the rules for discussion of the program on this board, can be found in the very first post of the FAQ thread No need to wade through all of the pages."

I just have to say that the 1st page of the thread shows really old mugs on the "what do the current mugs look like" FAQ. So yes, I did in fact have to wade through all the pages to try and find my answer - which I couldn't. I'm obviously not a newbie and I'm not a rule breaker either. I was just looking for a simple answer. Rant over now, back to my regularly scheduled life...

I get your frustration. The pic in the first post definitely needs to be updated. Your thread was closed because ALL mug questions should be asked in this thread ONLY. While the thread is long, you can do some things to quickly find what you are looking for. The best thing to do is use the "search this thread" feature and search for the word "current". That would have gotten you to the pic/info on the mugs. Otherwise, just post your mug question here and someone will answer. No separate thread necessary.

Yes, the mugs are the same - although you may be able to get a different colored lid/handle than the ones you currently have - depending on the selection available at the resort you are staying at

My apologies for putting MY post on that closed thread just wasnt paying attention I guess, I was too busy reading up on the most recent line-cutting rant

ANYHOO, what I said about the mugs was that I miss the resort specific mugs, they were way more fun than these current generic looking ones. Just my opinion~that and a quarter will get you a cup o coffee....in an ugly mug!

cheers

In May 2007, we got 3 DVC specific mugs at SSR. Those were the only mugs available the 10 days we were there. They say "Disney Vacation Club Spring 2007" with a pretty purple/yellow floral design. This was probably available at any DVC resort, while the others had the new, generic mugs.

Well, I was there in December 2007 and the mug I have says 2007 on it, so the generic ones must have been introduced after you were there.
