    Anyone who has been to the world lately, like this fall - have the mugs changed? When I was there in August they were the ones with the fab 5 (plus daisy) and the tops came in pink blue and black. Are these still here? I'm just wondering! And if anyone has a picture of the new ones I would love to see them

    Thanks DISers!!!

    In early October the mugs were the same as LAST October. I haven't heard anything about a change in the past few weeks.

    Thanks everyone!! And this would make sense. Don't they usually change them after a year or so - or when the supplies run out?

    Thanks again! - I guess we will just have to wait and see. If anyone knows when the new ones are coming or if they get a new one while at the world I would love to see a picture of one.

    I wish they would go back to resort-specific mugs. My favorite Wilderness Lodge mug has the design almost worn off from repeated washings!

    All discussions and questions regarding mugs should be on the sticky at the top of the board.

    Keep an eye out at your local thrift store. I get them all of the time at mine. Have a nice collection now. Some resorts had some really nice mugs! :)

    No, they tested chipped mugs last and earlier this year. I was told that Disney was waiting for their billion dollar NextGen project to get further along before deciding on the drink mug issue.

    You might have been out of the loop, but yes it's in the works. It was tested at one of the value resorts. I'm wondering if they will start looking at it again once all the door locks have been changed out. One big project at a time.

    Just bought one last week. Still the beach party with Let the memories begin.

    Until they actually announce a new theme (the new advertisments seem to be hinting at one) they usually announce the official theme in Jan, and run out of the old mugs there will be no new cups.

    I'm also hoping for resort specific refillable mugs for our next trip. Maybe they will feature that new "Limited Time Magic" 2013 theme if they do roll out some new mugs.

    Why, given that there's an Official Refillable Mug sticky thread on this forum, are there two additional separate active mug threads? :rotfl:

    We miss the resort specific mugs too. I can't see the Caribbean Beach logo on mine anymore.

    Good point. ;)

    This thread is closed. You'll find all the mug information, discussion, and photos you could ever want right here on our Refillable Mug FAQ thread.
