Pop Century refrigerator question

Our trip is the first week of August at POP. It is my understanding that either they have already installed refrigerators or are doing that now. I remember reading conflicting information about details on the frig's. Do they have a freezer part or not? We would like to freeze water bottles if it was possible...

There is no freezer in the fridges WDW installed at Pop Century. We were there earlier this month. The refrigerator kept our milk and other perishables cold, but there is no ice compartment. There is an ice machine available on each floor. Obviously that ice couldn't freeze your water bottles. I just wanted to anticipate a question about ice availability for others reading this thread.

How about the size of the refrigerator? I remember everyone kept referring to them as "beverage coolers" and implied there was a huge different in size between them and regular mini-frig's that are typical in hotel rooms. Are they big enough to stock with water and room for takeout boxes of food, etc..?

Even the refrigerators in the Moderates and Deluxe resorts don't have a freezer section. But DVC resort refrigerators do.

It's the typical small mini-fridge. When I loaded ours - it held about 36 canned drinks - 3 12-packs. There might have been room for 1 take-out box, but not a lot of room - wouldn't hold a gallon jug of milk.

To me, it seemed exactly like a mini-fridge. I don't know what a beverage cooler is, or how small one is. I can say that I stayed at the Wilderness Lodge last year, and Pop last week, and the fridges seemed the same to me

Kept all of our drinks cold (bottles of water, soda, we bring juice boxes and capri sun packs with us). I feel like we put a lot on there, and were not disappointed at all!

Thanks for the pictures!
a half gallon will fit in the one spot on the door. I don't think the door will close with a gallon on the bottom but I did not try...so I'm not positive, but I know the bottom shelf seemed to present the most problems when we put things in for closing the door...Just our experience two weeks ago at POP

Velveeta?

Just curious - what do you use Velveeta for in a room with no microwave?

They're Velveeta slices. Most people use them on sandwiches.

Yes, all the rooms at POP now have a fridge. It does not have any freezer section though like most mini fridges do...it is all just a cold section. And ALL value resort rooms now have this same type of fridge. HTH!

I keep my ice bucket in the fridge, it seems to help the fridge get cooler, and the ice doesn't melt as fast. I would be nervous about milk, since the units don't get that cold.

At Mods/Del, they are sometimes behind a door. I keep the door in the cabinet open to help keep the whole unit cooler. (Mousekeeping closes it, but I open it again as soon as I get back to my room.)
