    Sorry about the coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker but I do love hot chocolate. Sorry about the weather it has been really crapy this week. Hopefully it will get better.

    Keep in mind everyone has different tastes. Some people love the nescafe. Some love*$, some loathe it. I'd bring your own, but give it a shot. Especially if you already have a mug with you.:-)

    A soda was $2.39 in March at Saratoga Springs. I am pretty sure that coffee, tea and hot chocolate are the same.

    Its like a security tag it let's the CM at check out know you haven't paid for that mug yet. After purchase its removed so you won't be charged again.

    Had the "new" coffee and will agree...blaaaa. I did not like the nescafe....but I really disliked the new one more!!! Was looking forward to the next trip without having to pack my VIA packets. Looks like a big NOT.

    We'll be in the world in June and I've never had Jofrey's so I'm curious what you didn't like about it, too strong? Too weak? Or something else? Thanks!

    I'm curious to see if although the brand has changed, but it is still the same coffee concentrate machines vs. fresh brewed. I suspect concentrate.

    Nope. Joffreys, to my knowledge, doesn't use any concentrate

    You can look them up, they have shops outside the parks,too.

    Disclaimer: I haven't seen the new machines

    I have had 2 mugs from the Polynesian I have had forever. I am heading back to the Polynesian in July. They have Minnie in a hammock and Mickey on a surf board; a coca-cola emblem and the bottom says patent pending. There isn't any writing on them. I would post a photo but don't know how.

    Are these the lifetime mugs? Do you think I'd have an issue if I used them?

    thanks.

    No, they are not lifetime mugs. I bought the same in 1997 and they were not lifetime mugs. There were signs posted over the stack of mugs telling guests that they were good only for the length of the trip at that location.
