I agree. I have a collection of souvenir mugs. I always buy at least 2 mugs on every trip. Why? So, in the evening I have more than enough tea or soda when I head back to my room. It's a long walk back to the food court when you're relaxing in your room.
I probably have 10 of the "generic" mugs and 8 resort-specific "length-of-stay" mugs. I also have 8 of the original CBR "lifetime" mugs, which are still in great condition, since I never take them back to WDW on subsequent stays at CBR. That's why I have 8.
I have 4 each of the last 2 designs, since they were both used for 2 years. I'm glad there's a new mug design this year, even though I'd rather have a resort-specific mug. I'll be purchasing 2 mugs in approximately 43 days, and will probably add 2 more next year.
