Pool Slide

It has been awhile since our last WL stay, does anyone know if the pool slide has an age limit or height restrictions for older children?

Don't think so. Adults use the slide too!

I read the announcement that all the minifridges in the resort rooms are being removed for repair or replacement. Has this started at the Lodge and does anyone know if it will be completed by the end of July, before we arrive?

I am a type 2 diabetic, and I don't have any medicine I need to chill at this point. I count on having food and drink available in the room at all times. I don't have diabetic noted on my room reservation as I don't want any cast members anywhere making assumptions about what I should eat and possibly substituting a "no sugar added" item.

Not to brag, but we are exactly 8 weeks behind you.
HAHA! You're right, it's well known that the cool kids check-in on Wednesdays

Barney's super cool, but I'm not sure if he can out-cool Floyd...

Welcome! I missed this announcement, do you have a link or can you point me to the info? I do know that if you have a medical need, the resorts will always have a fridge available for you, so no need to worry.

ETA: Just saw the DIS thread and will read it now.

Artist Point and WCC - last minute ADRs

There are a couple of evenings that I don't want to make ADRs (trying hard to hold on to the little bit of spontaneity that the whole 60-day FP+, 180-day ADR, etc. will allow). Is it possible to walk-in or make same-day ADRs for WCC and AP? We're going in January - the week leading up to the Marathon.

Sadie22:

I just looked over the fridge removal thread and this caught my eye:

While on the phone with Disney services today, I was told that if the cord to the fridge is rubber banded together, then it is not to be used and there would be a letter explaining that in the room. If that is the case, the guest can call and request a fridge for the room. If none are available, the guest can request a $15 per night credit put on the room charge.

The OP reports it will take up to four months to replace all defective fridges. DVC and FWC do not need replacement, presumably because they have full-sized fridges.

ETA: I know that you think you might not need a fridge, but I would put in a request for one, just in case you need to store insulin, snacks or drinks. If you know you won't need insulin, then you could store snacks and drinks unrefrigerated or buy as needed from RF and The Mercantile.

Thank you for your question, BTW! I'm going to post the fridge removal information to my threads

It might be more difficult getting an AP ADR than WCC, but it depends what time. If you don't have an ADR, it can be easier to get a walk-up right before opening for a Signature location. It's also easier getting a walk-up for a party of two. WCC at breakfast or lunch is easier than dinner when they're much more full. You could always make an ADR and cancel it if you change your mind.

Thanks for the WL update. I'll be checking in exactly 3 weeks from just about right now, so I can post a fridge update then

There is also a DIS thread discussing the removal. Rooms with regular-sized fridges such as DVC, FWC and Family Suites are not being removed.


Thanks to Sadie22 for posting a question yesterday about the fridge removal.

Finally doing the single digit dance! 9 days until I can smile for a whole week! If anyone is around from July 21-24, feel free to stop by and say hi. I'll be the one at Trout Pass Bar in the red swim trunks sipping a margarita!

Hi there. I would call and let them know you will need a fridge for medical reasons. You don't have to tell them what kind of medical for privacy reasons. This way you are sure to have one waiting for you when you check in and won't have to worry.
