Howdy guys and gals! It’s me – Anonymouse back with some Walt Disney World Resort gossip for you. Chippy has had me scurrying about to gather more and more gossip for you! I’ve heard that Rapid Fill Secure Refillable Mugs Program is a BIG failure! That’s right, folks, Disney is losing money hand over fist on this program.
Disney now has new Resort Mugs with a chip in them which costs extra and drives the prices of the mugs up. Not only that, but Disney had to install systems to read these chips on all the soda machines at every resort. More cost = higher prices!
Guests have quickly become aware that it’s only the soda machines that are locked down with this new system. So, they drink Hot Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, and Juice instead. This increased consumption drives the cost through the roof. Further, it’s been rumored that the Deluxe Resort managers hate the system. So, they just turn it off all together. Now you have free soda in the mix as well.
Guests are fed up, managers are fed up, other cast members are fed up…so, who tested this system and declared it great? Why wasn’t it tied to the MagicBand?
It’s highly likely we’ll be seeing some changes to this system soon!
Anywho, that is all the Disney gossip I have right now. For my past gossip articles be sure to check them out here. Got any good gossip/rumors please email me at [email protected] or on my facebook page.

Some of what she’ll report is confirmed, some is based on information from the rumor mill, and some, frankly, she just read on the bathroom wall in Fantasyland.
So take it with a grain of salt and have fun!
