    Amazing. In rooms with dishwashers I am ok with actual dishes. If there is no dishwasher, how are the cleaning employees supposed to effectively clean the dishes?

    This is great news, IMO.

    I completely agree. I’d prefer the paper and plastic! I have no desire to wash dishes on vacation!

    If I check into a 1BR villa ANYWHERE and I have only paper products for plates and bowls, I intend to shove everyone of them into the dishwasher and turn it on. This is not the level of service I expect, nor what I paid for. Next, we'll only have plastic silverware...gotta love cutting a steak with a lego piece. Prices continue to climb, both for points, passes, and everything else Disney.....and we are getting less and less everywhere.
    I can't wait, to save on Disney having to do laundry, we'll dry off after showers with those brown paper napkins, and beds will be lined with that plastic paper generally found on doctor exam tables. Get up, throw it out. Throw everything out. Water conservation ! So, what's the going resale rate for my 900 points? I am continually pushed further and further away from my favorite place in the world. May be time to find a new happy place.

    We've been down this road before. Years ago the real china and glassware was removed as a "safety" issue and quickly replaced after a month or so due to member complaints.

    Make your preference known. They do listen.

    When I stayed in a studio at SSR in January, they had already removed the coffee mugs and replaced them with paper cups. I don’t mind the paper products and plastic silverware but I hated losing the real coffee mugs.

    Well that stinks! I really do not like heating water in a plastic/paper cup (for my tea or oatmeal) in the microwave! That is just ridiculous. Even regular hotels give you glasses/mugs in the rooms! Come on Disney, really? Guess I have to pack my own coffee mugs now.

    I have to admit that this change to studios doesn't really bother me. I know that at most DVC resorts I can request a teakettle if I want to heat water for my tea.

    Since the larger 1, 2, and 3 bedroom villas all have dishwashers, I can't see DVC making changes with them. But I have to admit that I always wondered if the cups and glasses were really clean in a studio and my only option was to had wash them myself in a studio. Whereas in a larger villa I could run the dishes through the dishwasher.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that we still have glass wine glasses. It is sort of conflict as to why it bad to have mugs and real glasses, but okay to have a real wine glass. Of course, I would think many wine drinkers would be really unhappy with plastic wine glasses.
