The design for 2010 is the same as the design for 2009 -- the red one with Mickey, Goofy and Donald in party hats with balloons. The most recent cup shape is the "long-taper" mug with different color handles.

"Refills available at no additional charge at Resort Beverage islands located in the resort that this mug was purchased thru the end of your resort stay."
This is different from other policies as printed on the mugs in recent years and makes it harder to justify that they mean for guests to use them at *any* resort during that vacation except the one in which they purchased the mug.
So, if you follow the policy strictly, then... no, you cannot move to another resort during that vacation and continue to use that mug.
Of course, each of us has to decide how strictly we will follow the policy, but it's important that we at least make sure that it's stated here.
As you say, it's a matter of how strictly someone feels they ought to observe the policy.
I'd feel it was wrong to buy a mug for a two-day stay, move off property to stay with relatives or go to an off-property hotel for a few days, and then return to Disney and use the same mug for a week-long stay.
But then, the other side of the above situation is how green is it to buy yet another plastic mug when you already have a usable one? Policy seems to be demanding to be broken in that case, especially since Disney recycles so much and generally tries hard to be green.
As Eileen points out, this could be a personal ethical dilemma.

Its funny because when they first came out with them it was buy a mug and return to use it again. The first ones had no stipulations on them and I remember the maid telling my Mom if you return you can use the mug. Of course she always bought more anyway. I cant tell you how many CB mugs there are here. They are great to take up the pool with the lids on them for the GK now.
Love the Magic of Disney Thanks Dad for our first 5 trips.
