Yep, and I was there in Oct. of 2007 and our mugs were the generic design, too. So sometime between May and Oct. the switch was made.

Thank you for replying! Ok.. I don't feel too bad for not going back to Disney after 2005. I like collecting resort specific mugs.. and I would hate to have missed if there were new ones before the generic ones came out.

Thank you EpcotBill and jcarwash for posting the pictures! Since I don't have any of those generic ones.. I am actually excited to buy them!! I hope that by next year, there will be a new style because I am also planning a trip next year.

Question Question

We are staying 2 days at POP and 4 at POFQ. Will we have to buy new mugs when we transfer? Thanks!

Sorry. Didn't look back far enough. Found I can use the same mug for both resorts.

All I can say is: Disney just seems to make everything they do seem magical and special. Love it! Cannot wait to get my refillable mug!

I have not read through all 83 pages, but was wondering if any one has heard if Disney is considering allowing people to bring back old mugs to be used for some amount like they do at the water parks?

I know I would be willing to shell out a reasonable amount per mug on returned trips. Especially if the return trip has the exact same mugs. I don't need 8 of the same mug.

At this time, there is no such system in place. You must purchase a new mug for each stay. HOWEVER, they did some testing of a new soda machines that are triggered by an RFID chip in a mug. The chip stores data of your stay and there was some talk about the possibility of purchasing a NEW chip for subsequent stays. It is not yet know if and when the new sytem would go property wide. The tested it at ASSports, but once the test was over, the machines and the mugs disappeared. I hope it comes back. I have lots of mugs, too. I think I will start giving them away to kids in the neighborhood. If I can build up the strength to part with them, that is.

At one point, ASSp was experiemtning with rfid chips. Is that still going on?

Are they doing anything like that at the new AoA resort? or any other new technology related to getting food - like unique coffee dispensers?

Are they bringing in any unique beverages? (like Pop had frozen Coke and apple juice)


Just curious if anyone has an feedback on the new food court yet.

smitch425 had just noted above that the RFID test at All Star Sports ended, and those machines and RFID mugs disappeared.

AoA is not doing anything different with the soda, coffee, or iced tea dispensers. There isn't any new technology related to the food items but they are offering different menu items and are cooking more items fresh.

AoA does have Mello Yello in the soda dispensers, which seems new/different. By the way, Pop no longer has the frozen Coke machines, nor do they have apple juice in the soda dispensers.

Does anyplace besides the electric umbrella have apple juice in the dispensers? I have never seen it at a resort. Wish they did, thiguh. 100% juice option would be great for the kids.

End of March 2007. IIRC I was there at the start of the switch. They started with the All-Stars and then brought them to the other resorts as they ran out of the resort specific mugs.

Can mugs be refilled at the Sand Bar at the Contemporary or do we have to go inside to Contempo Cafe?
