    We picked stadium cups to provide a bigger drink for people - the cups at the resorts are often like Dixie Cups - and frankly most of our guests will be done before the drink has time to get warm - I think it you want something to keep the drink colder over a longer period of time - go for the mugs ...

      i agree with the above poster. i did stadium cups because they are a lot bigger than the little plastic cups the resort gives you. the travel mugs i wanted to get would of cost me like $4 a mug and i didn't want to spend that much. AT first i was a lil bummed that i was doing travel mugs but now I really like the stadium cups and if people didn't use or bring their travel mugs with them i'd prob be a lil pissed that i spent all that money on them.

        i think it depends on how many people too. my original thoughts were that up to 20, i'd do a mug, and after that, a stadium cup. i'm glad i didn't do either, bc our ai served drinks in bigger glasses, and it would have been a waste.

          I did stadium cups, mostly b/c they were easier to pack. My guests loved them and used them all week. They were significantly bigger than the cups that the resort gives you. And to be honest, I don't think anyone had their drink long enough for it to get hot...lol!

            yeah, our resort served drinks in tall nice glasses (plastic, but not disposable plastic) with nice pineaple & cherry garnishes. So basically nobody used the DIY customized mugs I made

              We went with cups just for packing reasons - and really - whatever people do with them after the trip is up to them - we wanted them to avoid frequent trips to the bar - and something a little fun to set our group apart. With all of the luggage restrictions now, it'll cost more to get mugs down there - plus then i had money left over to buy a few other OOT goodies :)

                I really like the travel mug idea. That is what we are planning to do. The last couple of times we have been to AI resorts we took our "Bubba Kegs." They were a hit with everyone(many were jealous)!! I would start the day off with 44 oz of Pina Colada. dicountmugs.com had some reasonable prices.

                  We are going to do bubba kegs for our guests and we will hand them out before we leave. Those we don't see before getting to the airport will get theirs at the airport. All of our guests will be leaving from the same airport with the exception of a 4 families that haven't even confirmed if they are coming or not.

                  As for the price, they go on sale at Canadian Tire, so we are going to get them then. A bunch of my family that went on a trip together last year have them and loved them at the resort!

                    That's super nice that you are going to see everyone before the trip! We moved about 3 years ago, and most of our close family and friends are coming from a different part of the country...so we wont' see anyone really before our trip ;(

                      We used mugs, and they really were great with keeping the drinks cold. I think if we would have just used cups, no one would have used them. Plus having the mugs in the pool helped keep the pool water out. I found some plain black mugs for a dollar at family dollar and wound up going to 3 of them around town to gather all I needed. Then I just used a silver sharpie to write their names on them.... very cheap yet effective!
