Booked a few nights here on a CM discount for April! We didn't plan on doing down this year but our fingers are crossed for a good tax return leading to a much needed WDW visit.

Very excited to stay here as it seems like the hidden value gem from reviews I'm reading! Everyone gravitates towards Movies, Pop and AoA so maybe we'll have a nice quiet stay

We check in tomorrow. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that we don't wind up completely hating our first Value experience because of the sold-out crowd and cheerleader competition!

We check in tomorrow too. I'm hoping we can get 2 adjoining rooms, but I am worried about the competition. Did you hear it was sold-out? The crowd calendars still show the parks being pretty quiet...

I think the parks will be fine, crowd wise, until the weekend. My birthday is Wednesday and we always book a stay at Disney to celebrate, so I'm used to dealing with the MLK crowds. The weather this year is MUCH warmer than usual for this time, though!

And yes, several people here on the DIS (including a CM, I think?) have reported that ALL the all-stars are sold out for this week.

I think at this point I'm expecting SUCH mass chaos that I might be pleasantly surprised and relieved if ASMu isn't a complete disaster when we get there!

See you around the resort! Hope you have a great trip!

We have our first stay coming up in March. We have stayed at Pop but never MSMu.

Can someone tell me about the size, location, and coldness of the refrigerators?

Are they cold enough to keep milk?

Thanks for starting this thread. It is much needed!

Can we say food issues?

I didn't have any problem with my milk and water being cold. Not icy cold but cold enough that it didn't spoil.

Music is compact so from front to back it's probably around 5-7 minutes. I was back by the quiet pool and got to the front in 3-5 minutes depending on how much rain was falling. I was in Country Fair last time so kinda towards the back, I was there in 2009 as well and was on the back of the Calypso 10 a preferred building and it was like 1 minute to the main building. The buildings kind of spoke out from the main walk way so all the buildings access the main walkway pretty quickly.

I figured out a way around it and added it to the main post.

We've rented the fridges a couple of times -- they're small and they put them where you want them (between the table and the window if you're not there). Like any mini-fridge they have very small freezers, but the doors have shelves big enough to keep milk on them. And we found everything cold enough -- actually DH stacked the strawberries too high and froze them.

ETA: Nm this -- I didn't know they all had fridges now...and I'm delighted!!!!

I just noticed this -- the table in the pictures is different than the one we've always had, and in a different place

Now all rooms have fridges. You don't have to rent them. They are in the TV armoire beside the drawers.
