    Hi,

    We will be going in April and we are staying 2 days at SSR and 8 days at BWV. If we buy our mugs at the SSR can we use them at the BWV as I've heard they are only good at the resort you buy them at. Any help appreciated. Thanks!!

    They are supposed to be only good at the resort you bought them, but they are a generic Year of a Million Dreams mug....everywhere except one resort (CSR maybe?). So they would not know if you bought it there or at SSR. I wouldn't put down 12 more dollars just because you are doing a split stay, in my opinion you are still staying there for one trip, so non-issue. JMHO, but I am sure the moral compass of the DIS boards will jump in about how it is dishonest and they would NEVER condone this (or tipping under 45% at every restaurant!) :rotfl2:

    You can use them at different resorts... no one will even question it because they are the same now (as pp stated, they are A Year of A Million Dreams) ...

    We actually bring old ones back from the resorts we have stayed....always bring our WL back to the WL and just brought back AKL mug back to AKL even though we bought them 7 years ago.... those mugs look very different and still no one said anything to us... I have seen several people do the same thing... don't worry about it.

    Dear lord, let's hope that the past mug debate doesn't arise soon.


    Anyway, you should be fine I think that CR is the only resort that does NOT have the YoaMD mugs, so you can buy one at SSR and it'll be great throughout your whole stay :) Have fun!

    Just an FYI:


    It has been noted that a few CMs are now approaching guests with old mugs.

    For the OP. I would go ahead and use that mug for your entire stay. They are there for use through the end of your stay. No one will question it. Now if they had different mugs for different resorts, I would have suggested keeping your receipt for it if questioned, they likely wouldn't have an issue with it if you were able to show that you purchased it during your current stay at WDW. Since they are generic YOMD mugs, this won't even be an issue.

    Actually the Contemporary is not selling any mugs because their temporary counter service location does not have the equipment for a soda machine. That information was told to me last August by a manager at the Food & Fun Center before it closed.

    As for Corondao Springs since their dinning locations are not owned by WDW, they are the only WDW Resort which is still selling their Resort logo mugs. So that means the YOAMD mugs can not be used there if you were to visit, or eat at their location where the mugs can be used.

    The new mugs are good at any resort beverage station during the current reservation period. It sure does make sense that they changed the rules with so many people switching resorts during their stays.

    I'd like to thank everyone for their help. Glad to know that we can buy the mugs on our 1st day and use it throughout our stay.

    We just came back from a split-stay (on-site the entire time) and only bought our mugs once. At the advice of a CM, we actually bought the mug from a different resort we were dining at during our first night there.

    I do not think re-using old mugs (pre-2008) is a good idea & certainly not worth the embarrassment of getting caught, but I don't think there is anything wrong with using the same mug for the duration of the same split-stay vacation.

    Minnie61650... thanks for the heads-up... We have used old mugs several times without a problem but I guess we would never want one... So I will have to tell DH we will be purchasing new ones on our next trip... maybe I will just forget to pack them :goodvibes

    You are welcome.

    I think forgetting to pack them is a good solution.

    Works for me. ;)

    Have fun at Disney!:wizard:

    We were there in mid Jan of this year, staying at AKL, we purchased 2 mugs, both dated 2007. I never questioned a CM about it, but wondered should we choose to travel there again this year, would we run into problems with a "new mug" yet dated 2007. (All mugs at AKL in mid Jan were stamped YOAMD 2007)

    I believe that for the Resorts to sell the YOAMD mugs for 2008 they had sell out of the ones from last year. So it was common for them to be selling the mugs dated 2007 when it became 2008.
