Soda machines

Does anyone know if they have installed the new RFID soda machines yet at AoA? And if they are selling the new mugs... what colors are available? TIA

If your room isn't ready when you check in, you could always ask if there is anything ready in the other sections if you're not set on a Cars Suite.

Thanks in advance for any help!!
I'm considering a one night Cars suite (at the end of our trip) to surprise my kiddos too!

Good idea! I love the cars suites, but the kids wouldn't mind staying in the Nemo suites either. We're going mid sept, and my TA mentioned she's usually lucky enough to get an early room at the resorts she's stayed at during off peak times. I'm packing our bathing suits in our carry on, so even if its not ready, we'll just hang by the pools/arcade/cafeteria until it is.

There are reports of the new machines being installed at the resorts, but they are being used in non-RFID mode for now. I saw the new machines at All-Star Music but they are being used with the current mugs.

AoA might be getting the new machines installed too, but probably like the other resorts they will likely go in and be used with the current mugs.

And so, no new mugs/colors yet either.

Little Mermaid Room

Geez!! How far in advance do you have to book?
Mainly because we live relatively close to WDW we usually don't book our stays too far in advance. I realize summertime is over the top crowded, but I haven't found a LM room available for months! It's just my daughter and me, so we don't need a suite. I just got this years school schedule and her first long weekend is the end of October, and no rooms are available. Yeah, I know it's Epcot Food & Wine time, but this is driving me crazy. Not my first choice to stay (particularly since with our Florida resident discount I can usually get a Deluxe Resort for the price of a AOA suite), but since it's new and we watched it being built over our many journeys here she is really feeling it. OK, end of rant....

I just plugged in arriving Friday Oct 25 2013 and departing Monday Oct 28 2013 and see availability for LM rooms...? Is availability affected by applying your Florida resident discount?

Wow-good catch! I had been trying Thursday through Sunday, but I think I'll nail down Friday & Saturday for now and worry about Thursday night later.
Thank you

To anyone that is dying for a Little Mermaid room, I just cancelled mine to switch for free dining for 10/2-10/7! Good luck if you aren't seeking free dining!!

Disney is getting ready to switch to soda dispensers at the resorts that require the presence of an RFID (radio frequency ID) chip in the refillable mug or cup. Without the chip being detected the soda won't be dispensed.

At the resorts these new dispensers are being installed now but are being used in "non RFID" mode for now. Then they will switch over to new mugs and cups for use with these machines.
