I'd love to go and get a new mug though. Got them in Jan 2010 with our DDP and I hate the design- it's ridiculous to have a pool themed mug from your WINTER trip, when the highs were in the 50's and 60's most of the vacation!
I got a free dining pin for this month... Fingers crossed you get on too!

And I totally agree, the pool mug is getting old!

I wonder if they're just going to wait until all of the current ones run out.

Funny how my two top wishes for our upcoming trip this April are FP+ for the mine train and brand new redesigned refillable mugs.

We are staying at BWI CL. If new mug designs aren't available we will just bring our old ones and refill in the inn keepers lounge. As is stands we rarely refill more than once or twice by the pool.

If that's the case I hope they run out soon.

So far the rumor of new mugs comes from one person who talked to a manager at one food court. I'd like to know if anyone else has talked to a manager at any other food courts. Can anyone else confirm what the OP said?

We're already 1/3 of the way through January and still no new mug sightings.

Well, it may just be wishful thinking but people have been talking about missing colors at resorts I think the most recent one was no orange at POR. So if they aren't replacing missing colors maybe they are starting to run out. I think the last time they changed mugs everyone talked about Jan but a lot of places didn't see them for weeks and weeks because they would not put new ones out until the old ones were gone. I think I remember a watch thread so that people knew which resort to go to to get new mugs/colors.

Thanks! I've been calling and calling - no pins. Looks like we won't have a trip this year :-( we had been doing every other year, and I just can't justify $5,800 on a trip that cost us $4,200 2 years ago (that trip actually had 1 more night!) and $3,300 4 years ago (same # of nights that we wanted to go this year - 7 nights). Same hotel, same ticket types, meal plan, same everything - WAY different price!

Even with the RO discount or the other specials they were running before Christmas, the best we got was $5,200!!! It's astounding how much rates have jumped lately!

Sorry, I totally went there but I'm so disappointed because I'm finally coming to terms with the fact that our trip is really not happening. I'm a hopeful one, and I just kept holding on to that hope for a pin or a better discount, and alas, none will come.

Hi I requested the planning DVD earlier in the week. That same night or the day after they sent me a pin code! I filled in that I wanted to go in August but the dates of the pin code had dates in January, March, April, May & August & September. It was for 35% off deluxe rooms or villas and less off of other rooms. I'm not sure if that discount is different than the before Christmas one you mentioned but I thought I would mention in case maybe it would help you. So request a DVD and see what happens!

I feel you. We basically have seen a 50% increase in room cost over 3 years. Higher prices and lower discounts combine for a much higher price. For the first time in 5 years of taking the kids, we don't have a trip on our radar.

For what it's worth, we did get a free dining pin for January through March. Have you gone onto the website and priced out a vacation? We got a pin by picking dates and putting the package in our cart. Then we just exited so the vacation stayed in the cart.

I love my mug- I know it's a bit pricey if you're off the DDP but I keep using it at home so I don't mind. It's like a vacation functional souvenir![/QUOTE]

Exactly! I got mine with the dining plan so it was not an added expense. Otherwise I might have thought twice about it. But then again, I use them every single day and this has been for almost five years!

From my personal experience in the past. That is exactly what they do. have a resort specific mug I love and then the generic one. Each are from my trip in 2009. I was there when the switch was made. I arrived in late May around Memorial Day. I was at CSR. They were switching them over and we happened to be there when they were using the last of the CSR specific mugs. I was able to get one of each. The new one was the red one with the Mickey and Parks symbols on it.

So, I got the old design and the new design on the same trip in 2009. I might be there again when the new rollout comes during my trip in February.

I really don't believe this rumor since it really doesn't make sense. If they were going to redesign the mugs they would have done it when they brought out the Rapidfill mugs. It makes no sense to spend the money to add the Rapidfill trademark to a mug then turn around and create new ones. The orange mugs must have just sold out faster than expected and haven't received the next shipment.

But it is interesting to see how this rumor has turned out.
