I agree. The models are set up for the best presentation possible - staging can be huge and I don't think Disney will skip that simple detail.

It doesn't mean the actual villas will have anything different than the generic but I will be surprised if the models do. But I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the actual villas have something different for a few years. Then the big old switcharoo can happen.

Unfortunately, I've stopped being shocked, after the cloth napkins and pretty generic napkin rings, salt & pepper shakers and generic placemats disappeared from OKW. And after pricing some Fiestaware like at OKW, I can see why they went to generic at the resorts. I just bought four Fiestaware bowls on Amazon and spent about $40.

a few here mentioned that using the bowls were pretty much useless; and that the coffee cups were quite small.
It's perfectly possible to refill either....

True, but trying to microwave something in too small of a bowl leads to a big mess. Especially hot cereal.

Will it lesson my vacation experience...no, but I did enjoy the way the dinnerware fit with the room decor.

They steal much more than the dinnerware, lamps, the i-pod alarm clocks, and at the Wilderness Lodge even the artwork off the walls of the lobby just to mention a few things.

I don't know about the napkins or napkin rings but the salt and pepper shakers had to be replaced after each room was vacated. Sanitary health regulations kept Disney from allowing the opened shakers to be reused for new guests. Remember they had the black seals on them that had to be removed before they could be used. I just wish they put the salt and pepper like they have at the quick serve restaurants in the villas so we don't have to get them from a counter service place each trip. We always ask if we can take some extra packets for the villa. So far we have never been told we could not have them. In fact the response is usually thanks for asking, most folks just take them.

Now for all the people that view Disney through rose colored glasses the generic white plates will look pink,

It is a cost cutting measure.... all dishes the same... oh well.
so when is Disney going to sell them?

never take stuff - but would love a set of these dishes.

Sadly, I know. I just wish it wasn't to a level that they actually have to 'generic' the dishware. Makes me sad that there are that many people out there who will steal, just don't get their thinking.

I'm told that during AP/D23 previews, someone managed to pry one of the starfish off of the rockwork in the Mermaid queue.

This is why we can't have nice things.
