Me too with the half and half, but where do you buy it on property? Or do I need to leave Disney to find it?

We are here right now, they are not selling the new rfid mugs, they are still selling the blue, pink and black mugs.

It doesn't even look like the machines have been updated to the rapid fill system, they do not look new and I did not see the display that will display when your next refill is available.

In magic band news, make sure that you know what your pin number is before using it to make any purchases or use it for your dining plan. I was told that you are suppose to set it up when you do on line check in. Since I did on line check in well before I was notified of the magic band testing I did not set up my pin number. If you did not set up a pin number, you will be able to to do so when you check in.

We always used the latitude and longitude coordinates for Disney resorts on our older GPS. The new one did recognize the address for AoA, though.

The Mousesavers website has gps points of interest you can download to your gps for just about all things you could think of at Disney.

I'm a little confused. I thought the magic bands were being tested by people that Disney randomly chose, but after reading things on here I'm not so sure that's the case. It seems like everyone is getting them. So is it your choice or how does it work?

Can somene tell me what an individual carton of milk costs at POP? We usually buy a 1/2 gallon of milk but since it looks like we won't have a fridge this year, I was just trying to budget. Thanks!

They are allowing all the guest at certain resorts test them if they choose. Pop is a test resort for August and September.

Question regarding on-line check in:

I just filled it out but it told me my pin was already set Does it store your pin from previous visits? (I did do on-line check in for our June stay at POR and I used the same CC, however it is NOT saved in my DME profile).

TIA!
