    Re: Refillable mugs

    They have a new design for the "What Will You Celebrate" promotion so older mugs would kinda stick out, but I've seen many do it before and get away with it.

    I've used the same mugs for 7 or 8 years and no castmember has ever said a word to me about it.

    Re: Refillable mugs

    We used old ones on our last trip. Never had a problem. I remember seeing lots of different mugs ( old ones from the resorts) and never saw any CM's say anything to anyone.

    Re: Refillable mugs

    Sheesh... my YOAMD mugs have been so well used at home, I wouldn't even consider bringing them this year, even if Disney said directly that we could!

    If we use mugs, we'll be using new ones... it's a cool value for a souvenir anyway... I'd be willing to pay $6-8 for a mug itself, so to get unlimited beverages for throughout our 9-night stay for the additional five or six bucks, I think it's totally worth it!

    And I like the new design!

    We don't use the resort mugs at home. We save them for the resorts which is why they are in such good condition.

    Re: Refillable mugs

    It's printed right there on each mug that it's good for free refills only during the stay in which it was purchased. The signs at every beverage station in every resort say the same thing. It's been this way for many years.

    Will a cast member say anyhting to you? I've NEVER heard of that happening. It's a matter of honor and conscience.

    I try to demonstrate to my kids that they should do what they know is right, not what they know they can get away with.

    It is that moral compass that raises it head again. No, they are for that trip.

    They were testing a strip on cup that active for a short span of time that you needed to wave to activate the soda fountains. Never did hear a follow up on it.

    (funny you posted my thoughts just prior)
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: Refillable mugs

    There really is no doubt that you are not supposed to use the mugs from a previous trip.

    The wording on the mugs have apparently changed with the new design...basically saying that they are only good for the trip AND THE RESORT in which you purchased it...which seems to imply that if you are on a split stay, you can't "transfer" the mug from one resort to the other...but the fountains themselves have not had a wording change yet that at least is more permissible for the resort hoppers...
