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.
Well yes but you're using logic and common sense.

It seems like no one has thought of the possibility that Disney is just cutting the choices from 3 to 2 colors by eliminating orange and saving themselves a few dollars in the process. Nah, they wouldn't do that.

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!

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've gotten a DVD (last summer/fall) and I've been pricing out all kinds of different scenarios online. I've left the ones I like in the cart.

I just did both again tonight. If that doesn't work out for later this month, my new obsession is going the week after Thanksgiving to WDW, and then staying an extra week (or even 5 days) at Universal and doing Ollivander's on my DD's 11th birthday!!! That's gonna take some serious saving this year!!!

I am using my WDW resort - pool design, pink, from our 2012 trip - every day. It keeps a smile on my face in the horrendous traffic we've been having with the crazy weather we've had this last week! I might hate the pool design, but I do have to say the seal is phenomenal. It's never dripped! I wish it kept hot drinks hot/warm for longer though.

I have had a WDW account for years. I have gotten DVDs, maps, priced vacations, etc. I have never gotten a PIN ever. Nothing will guarantee you will get one.

I have never gotten a refillable mug before, and I am looking forward to getting one in May. I don't care if it is old or new because either would be new to me! Haha

The week after Thanksgiving is priced pretty well. It's an awesome time to go.

Same here no PINS at all and my mom is linked to my account and she has never gotten a PIN.

I'm not getting a new mug unless it's something spectacular. I've got two (one pre RFID) but I only paid for one, the other came with FD. My non RFID lives at work in case I need something to drink out of at work ( I refuse to use the community stuff, I've seen how some people do KP duty around here ).

My other one just hangs out at the house in the cabinet. I probably should bring it to work as well so it doesn't get lonely.

We just checked into Pop, and all they had were green and purple. I wanted a new design mug, so I checked out Poly, Gr fla., and Contemporary, before purchasing, but each and every one only had the green and purple mugs, old design.

24 days until we leave for Disney and really want a new mug. I have two sets of the old ones.

Seems to be a good sign for new mug designs if the orange lid mugs are not being re-stocked anywhere.

I was at Art of Animation last week and all they had were green and purple, and a significant larger amount of green. I saw a girl fill up a pink one when I was visiting the Polynesian, but she was getting iced tea (which to my knowledge isn't connected to RapidFill) so she probably had it from a previous trip.

When we were in Disney in August, the deluxe resorts didn't have rapid refill mugs. The deluxe had the pink and purple. We stayed at the POR and we're offered green or orange which were rapid refill. Did Disney install the raid refills at the deluxe hotes yet? Or is rapid refill still only at moderate and value resorts?

Shoot! Was hoping that the new mugs would be available when we get to POP on Jan 26th. Hopefully there will still be 2 colors to choose from. I was hoping we each could have a different color for the 4 of us, but it looks like only 2 are currently available.

Maybe they are trying to use the mugs and that is the reason they have attached them to the dining plan, and they are trying to get rid of those before the new ones arrive? Just a thought?
