Rats .mobile app hard to use. I was saying do not know what would happen if someone tries to buy an old one but they were entering expiration dates and activating RFID . Have not been down to see if enforcement began today.

Interesting data point...Universal is using the Freestyle machines with the VersaFill technology. $10.99 for a souvenir cup with unlimited refills in the park it was purchased in, until they close the fill stations around the park around 30 minutes prior to closing. I did not think to test if there is a refill lockout time.

Also interesting - they offered no "single fill" or short term options. So while Mel's Drive-In had three Freestyle machines, you could only use them with the souvenir cups. If you wanted a single soda, it was given to you the old fashioned way.

Today at BCV they had an easel sign up announcing rapid refill starts tomorrow morning (Monday) ... Will report tomorrow. Noticed several times the last 2 days one machine or the other was out of ice.

Rapid refill is live at BCV! 3 castmembers there to help, biggest issue is people don't want to let their cup sit on the holder where the reader is. They want to hold the cup up to the nozzle. But my issue was odd: no RFID chip in my mug! Even though it is labeled "rapid refill". They were mystified but replaced it in 3 seconds. Fun!

I don't let my cup touch the nozzle but I don't like it to sit on the holder either (normally - who knows with the RFID type) because it splashes too much that way in my opinion. Then you have too much foam on top. Some of that is eliminated by tilting your cup.

I think this is a good idea because I see too many people stealing sodas.. I used to work at backlot express in HS and they are the only ones in the park to have a self service fountain and everyone would take advantage of it. The mugs from the resorts people would bring and fill up- I've even seen people putting coke in empty water bottles. It was really annoying. I hope this helps phase out people stealing sodas in hotels with self serve fountains!

Not sure why you think you look like an idiot.

Many of those "old" mugs could have been purchased recently and the guests are still there. They are having an "overlap" period where they are selling the new mugs but the machines haven't been activated yet, to allow the "old" mugs to transition out. Any guests still staying at the resort with old mugs when they activate will need to show a receipt of purchase that it was during their current stay, and Disney will deal with it.

Well, they'll be the ones that look like idiots when the machines get activated

Unless they have the legendary "forever" mugs...then we'll see how Disney looks...
