We checked in and bought 1 mug ( we drink mostly water) for length of stay.. Our trip was dec 10-15 but it said I could refill til dec 24... The thing that made me mad was the limit in refills! You can only refill once every three min.. Just stupid!

It's actually up to three minutes now?

Of course, the reason for that delay is to prevent sharing of a single mug...

It was avg between 2:30-2:45 when we were at CBR in Oct, but it seemed like there was always 1 machine that wasnt online and just open , but as for the fast that the girl who activated our cups was confused , we got the 4+ days on our cups , since they were included in the dining plan.

Water should not have been affected by the time limit. The time limit is to prevent (or at least make it harder) people from buying one mug and sharing it with a group. Most people do not drink that fast, and if someone is trying to cheat the system, kudos to Disney for trying to stop them.

I don't drink soda except when we are at a Disney resort but when we go to Disney, I get a mug and have an orgy of soda drinking. I will fill up the mug, drink quite a bit and then refill. The three minute time limit is going to be a PITA. I understand WHY Disney has the time limit but it is a PITA never the less.

If someone really wants to cheat the system they will just wait the three minutes to get another refill and you know the cheaters will just wait...

Later,
Dan

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

Disney is a lens that focuses on people.
Sometimes it exposes the worst.
Most of the time it highlights the best.
