Cooking in your room???

This is my first on site stay at Disney. We are staying at the All Stars Movie Resort. I have seen swaps with toasters mentioned. I am pretty sure that cooking in the rooms are not allowed but hey when you are on a budget you do what you have to do. That being said I was wondering if anytone had ever taken a small microwave? I was just thinking of all the frozen stuff I could reheat in the microwave. Anyone with suggestions .... toaster vs microwave.

Just use the toaster and microwave in the food courts. I guess my next question is how do you plan on storing all your frozen food?

Thanks powellrj! I wasn't sure how the Disney resort would feel if I used their microwave to heat up a Hot Pocket or something of that nature.Are the microwaves and toasters in an area that is available to visitors at most times. Suppose my DD2 wants a snack at 9:00? I really didn't want to cook in our rooms but I didn't want to get ugly looks for obviously being a cheapie when using the toaster or microwave to heat my grocery store bought breakfast/lunch.

You can always use the microwaves in the food court.

Food courts are open from about 6 AM to midnight.

Gosh, pretty harsh post ... to be called a troll. lol The reason I said that was I had actually read that someone had take a microwave and cooked in their room. Or perhaps it was the family in the room next complaining of the food smells wafting from the room next door. I was more curious about the availability of toasters and microwave at the resort. I didn't know if a guest could use them to heat or reheat non Disney purchased food.

You sure can use them! Much better than potentially smelling up a whole block of rooms, don't you think?

I have to ask, how do you plan on keeping your hot pockets frozen? Do some of the swap fridges have freezers too?

With that in mind if I think something is not allowed I don't do it. Just like with my kids if they know a rule but follow you do what you have to does not result is good things.

If you are new to the boards

Warning: Given your post count and topic you should be prepared to be labled a troll given you already stated you don't care about the rules.
