[QUOTE=Mickeybug;1108967]So far all the information i’ve read on this is targeting the resort “mugs”. How does this work with the regular disposible cups one purchases with a meal. It would make no sense at all to invest in putting chips in those, which would still allow guests to take any cup up to the dispensor. The only way to stop that would be to distribute paid-for-the-day drinks from behind the counter and only use fill-and-go stations for the mugs.
I’ll admit i’m one that has rode the line on the rules with the mugs. Sometimes I buy mugs when we visit and it’s used only on that visit but I may not be staying at that resort.
When we stay at sog we walk across the street to Poly in the morning to catch the rail, fill our newly purchased mugs for that trip then go into the parks and continue using it for ice through the day. We do the same at the end of the day for the walk back to the hotel. I guess once they install the system throughout that’s $46 they won’t be getting in mug sales for the $1 worth of soda we consume since there may not be a reservation to link the chip to.
That’s ok though since we really should be drinking more water anyway after a long hot day in the park :happy:[/QUOTE]
Good point, but with the disposable cups, don’t they need the chip to activate the dispenser? Will the disposable cups go altogether? I can see why Disney are doing this, but no doubt there will be a ton of questions and ways found round it too sadly.
