Saw this on another site: We were just able to confirm that the fridges in the Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, as well as the Family Suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, are NOT affected by this removal.

Can a TA confirm?

For myself, the ice in a cheap cooler was how we kept drinks cold. The ice machines always seemed to have ice then, so it shouldn't be a problem now. Refillable mugs help a bit (but requires someone to go fill them).

It is a bit more hassle, but doable.
Sure it is doable but what about the visitors who do not hear about this and order food that requires refrigeration from a grocer then get there and find there is no fridge and don't have a car to go out to buy a cooler. I'm sure you can tack one onto your bill or take a taxi out to get one, but that is a big hassle for a few days use.

It is listed in the amenities so people are going to expect and count on it to be there.

I have a DD with epilepsy and blood sugar issues, so I called and had a medical priority request put on our ressie, so hopefully we can have one, but we are planning on a rental car on our 2nd day, so we can pick up a cheap cooler if need be. But I so don't want to go that route.

XXX/night for a room with a frig before the the problem and after the fix. same price but no frig until they fix them all. Same room but less "service" for the guest in the room.
It's going to cost me more OOP for milk, juice for the kids and water if this is not fixed before my trip.

It used to cost $10/day to rent a frig from Disney, Shouldn't we all get a $10/night discount?
Did they raise the rates an additional $10/night when they added the fridges? I know rates go up every year, but when they added the fridges to the room, did they tack $10 extra on each night?

If it were me, I would either pack a fold up cooler, or buy a cheap one when I get there, and then utilize the ice machines.

They are not the same fridges that are in the standard rooms. So yes they will not be affected.

I think they could do either one. If they want to keep the fridges they have, they'll have replace or modify the cabinet. Or they could buy different fridges.

Well that sounds good. I would imagine the 4 month thing is just a CYA in case they don't get it all done more expeditiously.

Will be keeping my fingers crossed they are done replacing them by my Nov trip since I need one for my insulin.

I have just called and asked about POFQ and was told that their refrigerators will be replaced in plenty of time for our November trip! No need to worry about DD's medications now!
