New Rapid Fill Resort Mugs at Walt Disney World

As we speak, the new Rapid Fill refillable mug system is making it's mark at Walt Disney World resorts, one resort at a time.

The new refillable mug stations at the resorts are in transition to the new Rapid Fill system. This system allows guests to purchase a specific number of days of refills.

The RFID chips embedded in the mugs will only allow usage of the fountains for only the purchased number of days.

At the end of the purchased period, the mug will deactivate itself.
Regardless of where it was originally purchased, the new mugs, with the Rapid Fill chip, will be able to be used at any Walt Disney World resort  quick service fountain.

The Rapid Fill will use a tiered pricing structure.
Each pricing is counted on a calendar day scale...NOT a 24 hour period.
The days will use Eastern time, and when the clock strikes midnight, a new day begins.

 The tiered pricing structure is as follows:

$8.99 for 1 day
$11.99 for 2 days
$14.99 for 3 days
$17.99 for length of stay

Just like the original refillable resort mug, this Rapid Fill mugWILL be included in some of the Disney Dining Plans.

However, keep in mind, with this new chip embedded in the drink fountains, mugs from a previous trip/purchase will NOT be usable. The fountains will NOT activate without the Rapid Fill ID chip.

 At the beginning of August, the Walt Disney World resorts began the transition. So, although they may not all be using the Rapid Fill system just yet, it should be in place by the end of the month.

The mugs come in a range of colors: yellow, teal, purple, pink, green, black and orange.
At this time, they are not resort specific, and will all feature the Fab 5  at the Disney Pool Scene (a mug that has been previously featured at the resorts and water parks)

Be careful...

When I was a little girl, I used to love to help my grandmother cook in the kitchen.
I loved that feeling of independence, and being so much bigger than I truly was.
And she used to always tell me "Be careful, stirring that pot, you are gonna get burned"
And as the years have passed by, I have learned that this lesson means way more in the real world than it does in the kitchen.
If you don't "stir the pot", there's better chance of not being burned.

18 years summed up in a coffee cup!

18 years of praying, hard work, arguments, PTO meetings, little league, ball games, youth mission trips, art projects, homework, ACT testing, fundraisers, field trips, spend-the-night friends---all summed up right here!! And I couldn't be any more proud! He set a vision years ago, and followed God's path, to get there! Have fun, Mas---but not too much :)

The Bachelorette Finale

An island theme party was underway, the rose was on the counter in anticipation.

The girls gathered with faces of confusion and distress for Des.

The guys had this "what in the world was Brooks thinking when he left the hot chick"

And when the show came on, there was silence in the place!

To quote my friend Scott Wood "When the Superbowl is on, it's time to watch the game!"

We cried, we laughed, we made predictions.

But in the end, she chose Chris, and personally, I couldn't be any happier with the outcome of this one!

And, according to us, this is how it looked....

I made this little recap using the Story app. Give it a try, if you haven't already!
