Miscellaneous News
A new children’s activity table for drawing has been installed inside Fulton’s General Store. Additionally, new Rapid-Refill Mugs have rolled out across the Walt Disney World Resort.

Special thanks to one of our Readers (Matthew) for sharing the above information with us.


  1. Those new Refill mugs are quite cute and include references to all the Disney resorts. A step in the right direction, although we still miss the resort-specific refill mugs.

  2. It's easy to see the money saved by generic WDW merchandise, especially 20 years ago. But the modern era however, small runs, JIT inventory, automated backoffice operations etc - it's crazy Disney doesn't offer more original, hotel/resort specific goods.
    They talk up their 'resorts' as each being unique and special, but they're no longer honoring that image - each is just another hotel at WDW, no big deal.
