I have gotten ice at the machine for our cooler twice so far and there seems to be plenty.

Anyone have any recent experience at ASMovies? I checked the first post, no info on that resort there.

My mom & sis check in next week and she's curious to know. TIA!

Seriously? They expect people to walk to the front desk when they want a something from their fridge? The whole reason I buy things to keep in the fridge is so that I don't have to walk to the lobby/food court.

EXCUSE ME???? They wanted you to leave your food at the front desk fridge!? I think not!! Were they serious? Sorry but thats disgusting. I would never! how do I know what the staff are doing to my food when im not there? So lets say i wanted milk for my cereal, i'd have to come up to the front desk to get it? Wow!! just wow. Im guessing the CM you spoke with was either new, or severely misinformed.

Here's another question. Are they offering this to everyone at pop? Cause if so, that must be one massive fridge!

Its actually a large-ish walk-in cooler in Bell services, the same place they'll hold your GG/WGS orders if you aren't in your room when they arrive. I would suspect the area is under video surveillance, and I doubt any Bell Services or Front Desk CM would be willing to risk their job by tampering with your food just like they wouldn't risk their job going through your luggage that you have held at Bell Services or delivered by DME.

Yes, if you wanted to retrieve milk for cereal in the morning, you would have to go to the Bell Services counter outside the main building, have them bring you your milk, use it, and have them put it back for you if you didn't use the whole container. The point of the $15 per night room credit is to offset the cost of you going to the pre-pack section in Everything Pop and getting a single-serve milk, snack, or other beverage that you would have otherwise bought in advance and stored in the fridge you expected to be there. Of course you could just apply that credit to souvenirs and food throughout your trip and use the money saved to buy a fridge (an 8-night stay's worth of credits would buy a 4.6 cubic foot fridge/freezer from walmart.com including tax with free shipping) then just sell or even give away the fridge if you don't want to ship/take it home.

Wow 49 trips that's a lot. How can I become a part of the family. :rofl: Have they all been at POP because POP just installed fridges in 2012. And seriously how do I become a part of the family to go with you. My DH is making us wait a couple years after this trip to go again.

Yes, when we checked in to Music Aug. 4 I asked about the fridge and the cm tried to sell me on leaving the food at the front. When I told her that the whole purpose was to avoid the walk back and forth she told me I could buy a small cooler at the gift shop for $6.95. I finally asked for the credit and she replied cheerfully that we could have one if we wanted it. Um, yes!
They will try anything to accommodate you other than offering the credit unless asked for.

Just thought I would post for everyone's info. that since our trip is paid for in full before we arrive and we never leave credit card info. for room charging I asked for a gift card for the fridge credit. I was told that I would have to buy one myself and was given the credit in cash instead.

Well, we check in at AS Movies tomorrow and we will pass along word. I am a Type 1 diabetic and have called twice in the past 2 weeks to request a fridge. I was told no problem both times. Fingers are crossed.

So whats considered a medical condition. My mom has alot of medications and most of them say must take with food. We need a fridge. Going back and forth is not really an option. If we cant get a fridge at sports will they give us a credit?

Just got to Pop today. We are in the 60s section. The fridge is physically in the room but it is unplugged and has a note on it saying not to use it because of the recent difficulties.
