There will some issues at first and Disney will work out the bugs.

After a while guests won't give the new machines or process a second thought.

In a year or two, Disney will increase the price and/or sell you bling stickers or theme mugs at a premium price.

I had heard POP had the RFID so I went to swap my new mugs (less than a week old) out so we could have some new colors at home but the new mugs were no where to be found and the RFID was off on he machines. Not sure what happened but I was looking forward to having new colors. We were at the Poly this evening and some ppl had the new mugs but most had the old and the RFID was not on/working.

Right now, the only ones that I think are active are at the All-Stars.

I assume that comment is directed at the guests who brought their own "big gulp" mugs to the self service soda dispensers.


I'm confused. You had no problem with Disney rules regarding soda, as long as Disney made no attempt to enforce them? The, soon to be, old policy was free soda for those guests who didn't think rules applied to them.

Having CM confront those guests might be considered tacky budget. This isn't that much different then the biometric finger replacing the honor system regarding park tickets.

edited to add: I agree Disney is charging top dollar for their hotel rooms. Disney's cost for soda is probably nominal. Disney could afford to simply offer free soda as an amenity. However that decision is up to Disney and not up to guests. OK Guests can indirectly affect Disney's decision by staying offsite. Do you think the inability to steal sods will cause guests to change their plans?

I would not buy a mug on your first night. Just buy the mug for your stay after the cruise. If you bought one the first night, it would not be good for the second stay. You would be better off just buying individual drinks that first night.

CBR selling RapidFill mugs...

Sometime between this morning and this afternoon, the swapped all the mugs on display for RapidFill mugs. However, the RFID on the fill stations is still not active. I'm guessing there will be a "grace period" while those who purchased the old mugs can still use them as-is, while the new mugs are probably coded as they were purchased but are not actually being scanned at this time. Might be a week, possibly two, for them to know all the "old" mugs should be "out of the system", as in guests not staying at the resort any longer. I didn't get a chance to ask the manager again.

All the signage was replaced with the new pricing model.

That suggests the problems at POR might be with customers who didn't have RFID mugs. Looks like Disney may be delaying using RFID until all, or most, of the guests who purchased non RFID mugs have checked out.

If you are staying there, can you ask if we can swap out our old mugs for the new ones?

I've never heard a better idea in my life!

That's what I was getting at, although I don't think old mugs were any sort of "problem". They sold the old mugs up until then. They still have to accommodate.

Left there. Now at SSR. No signs of new mugs. And they need to do something about the pool fill station...infested with bees.

It's been infested with bees for several years now unfortunately.
