I have one question though -

can you still get refills at the carts / stands at other locations? or are refills only at the machines?

for example when you walk into US there is a stand on the corner where Sunset Sidemen plays.

darn it, it was such a nice perc for repeat offenders.

any thoughts on a possible length of stay option for onsite guests? It'd be a nice compromise.

I just wish they'd dump the Coke contract and get Pepsi

i like coke..




don't think any length of stay program for soda would be implented.
hotels and parks are two different properties.

i've drug pepsi (despite it being complimentary on the ships) & mt dew along too. W always pick up a 12 pack of each along with case of water when we travel to Orlando, even warm it tastes better to us than coke lol.

Oh no it's bad enough to lose the refillables I would really be upset to lose Diet Coke too.

We were at US the other day and they are still selling the red cups all over the park. They also have that "souvenir cup" for the Coke machines. No problem getting the red cups refilled.

Yep, they are allowing refills at least for awhile but look for that to be phased out. I think the red cups are being sold until they run out. The future doesn't look good for our "forever" refills.

I was at Universal today (Dec. 16) and they were selling the red cups everywhere as buy 2 get 1 free. It looked like a fire sale the way they were at every soda stand. It took a while to find a place selling Coke in the 20 oz bottle.
There must be a huge inventory of those cups.

They've had the buy 2 get 1 free since at least early summer. I'm not saying they're not trying to get rid of them as they phase them out, just that the b2g1 is not new.

I'm wondering....any thought that they'll keep the red cups at the stands because the Freestyle ones are only available at very few locations? I'm hoping maybe these are just in addition to the red cups? A girl can hope right? :-)

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

this stinks for people who go often! what do they expect us to do with all the mugs we must now purchase each day? They should have an Annual Pass mug for those that do go often I won't be buying a mug a day, I will tell you that. Guess I will just drink water, it is better for you anyway
