We are at POR in a royal room. There is a fridge but it is unplugged and it has a note on it not to use it. Definitely a bummer. The ice machines have been empty a couple of times since lots of people are filling their coolers. We tried to call for one but they said they only are giving ones to people with medical needs. Oh well. Hopefully it will be resolved next time. Thank goodness for refillable mugs!!

Just curious, are they reimbursing you the $15 a night like it was rumored? We are bringing a cooler in case we don't have a fridge but it won't do much good if the ice machines are empty. With no fridge and no ice for the cooler, this will add a significant amount of money to our two week trip in breakfast food and drinks for the parks.

I, too would like to know the procedure for reimbursement. I understand you must "request" a fridge to get a credit for not having one. When is this request made? On arrival?

They said it could take at least four months. I'm hoping as it progresses, there's another update with a less vague timeline. We're hoping to have one for our mid-November trip.

Did they give you a $15 a night credit?

Great news! There's hope for us in having a fridge when we check-in TOMORROW at the Poly! And it's my understanding that not ALL fridges are being replaced, only certain models that had the problem. So it could be that your room had a fridge that wasn't included in the replacement. I'll check back in tomorrow when we get there and update.

MY TA said to request it at check in. He said he has tried adding requests to some reservations but he's been told that all rooms come with refrigerators. it seems that not all CMs are aware of the issue.

That stinks big time if people have coolers as a substitute and can't even get ice.

Thanks for starting/maintaining this thread, we will be at POFQ in late October and hope the refrigerators have been replaced there by then.

Where are you staying? I don't want to be in the hotel you are checked in when the fire starts while you are at the park. I especially do not want to be among one of the deaths you caused either.

Checked in at YC CL last Thursday and we do have a fridge. I did request one. I have heard other people say they do not have a fridge.
