2011-07-13T17:33:07-05:00

There is always a huge debate this as some people bring back old mugs from previous stays and say "when I bought this mug there was nothing that said it was only good on this stay", and then there are those who say that is wrong. There is usually a debate this on any Disney message board. Well that may all change now with Disney testing a new mug system I read about this on the DIS last night and [...]
