Face-to-Face fridge swap at POP - CLOSED! FRIDGE NO LONGER WORKING.

THIS FRIDGE SWAP IS CLOSED. THE FRIDGE IS NO LONGER WORKING.

PLEASE READ THE SWAP RULES CAREFULLY. PM ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE SWAP.

WHY A FRIDGE SWAP?
A fridge swap is a way to save money. Once it is paid for, it will be free to others who join instead of having to pay the $15/day that POP charges for a fridge.

HOW DO I JOIN THE SWAP?
First-see if your dates are available.Then PM me (sunlover13) if you're interested. Please have in the title “Fridge Swap” and your dates. I'll be happy to add you if your dates are available in our swap.

WHAT ARE MY RESPONSABILITIES AS A SWAPPER?
You are responsible for arranging times, with the swapper before you and the swapper after you, to complete the "swap". Things will run a lot smoother if we do the swap in person from DISer to DISer. The less it goes behind the desk at Pop the better. IF you must leave it at luggage services at Pop you must place a note on the fridge box that contains the full name of the next swapper, check in date, and confirmation #. That way there is less chance of it getting lost by staff. Don't forget to get all the info you need from the swappers before & after you. Make sure you post to this thread after you use the fridge so we know the handoff was a success!

The fridge box must be kept in good condition-that leads to a longer swap when it goes in and out of luggage services. Store the box somewhere where it will not be mistaken for trash by mousekeeping. MAKE SURE YOU GET A CLAIM TICKET FROM LUGGAGE SERVICES. TOO MANY FRIDGES GET LOST. GETTING A CLAIM TICKET WILL HOPEFULLY HOLD POP RESPONSIBLE IF THEY LOSE THE FRIDGE.You are responsible for getting back with me after I have tried to contact you. Also, please, please, please let me know if your plans change and you will no longer be able to participate in the swap. The sooner you know the better. AND OUT OF CONSIDERATION FOR ALL SWAPPERS, OR THOSE LOOKING FOR A SWAP, PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE FRIDGE SWAP.


HOW DO I CLEAN THE FRIDGE?
Please completely de-frost the fridge and wipe it dry if you will be bringing it to luggage services. To defrost, unplug the fridge, put a towel in it and under it (don’t get the carpet wet!) and leave the door slightly open. It should defrost overnight easily. Please wipe down the inside and outside with disinfectant wipes.

HOW DO I LEAVE IT AT POP STORAGE IF THERE IS A GAP BETWEEN ME AND THE NEXT SWAPPER?
You will tape a piece of paper to the box that says something like "Hold for guest (name), confirmation #, and check-in date. Then you can have luggage services pick it up or take it there yourself. Either way, make sure to get a claim ticket, or receipt, for the fridge-Very important! The other swaps have been able to get a new fridge when Pop lost their fridge because they had their claim ticket. The next swapper in line will have your phone number and they can call you for the claim number if the fridge goes missing. Write down your claim ticket number, then leave the actual claim ticket in an envelope at the front desk for the next swapper. If you are picking up the fridge from luggage services and they tell you they can't find it, ask to go back there and look for it yourself. Make sure you know what the box and fridge look like.

ANYTHING ELSE?
All swappers rely on the honesty of the other swappers when doing this. Please let us know as soon as possible should your plans change and you are unable to participate. Remember… this is to help YOU and others save money while at Disney. Make sure you are courteous and respectful of other swappers by keeping things running smoothly and keeping the fridge clean!

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE FRIDGE IN YOUR ROOM. EITHER PERSONALLY SWAP IT TO THE NEXT DIS'er or RETURN IT TO THE LUGGAGE STORAGE BELL DESK IN PERSON AND CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU ARE LEAVING THE FRIDGE FOR ANOTHER GUEST WHO IS CHECKING IN ON (the date their checking in) DATE.


COST
The cost will be $10 for the first 10 or so people who are going to use the fridge. I'm not going to charge people who sign up later in the year just in case the fridge disappears. So, the cost of the fridge will be divided up between the first 10 people to use the fridge. Keep in mind, the fridge could disappear and this is a chance you are taking. There will be no refunds. The fridge is now paid for and free to anyone who signs up!

PICS OF THE DECORATED FRIDGE



Top of the fridge in case the box disappears:


Inside of the fridge:


Box, with the slip you will fill out with the next swappers info if it has to go to luggage services:


Each side of the box is labelled with one of these:


The first swapper will bring $10 worth of supplies (disinfectant wipes, packing tape, labels, etc) and I will decorate the fridge in some manner so it stands out from the rest.

To hand it off to the next swapper, you will have to go to luggage service to check out a cart to lug it there, etc. You can work out with the next swapper on where and when to meet.

Since I check out early on the 28th, I need the next swapper to already be at POP on the 28th to avoid the fridge going to luggage services. KWIM?

Ok, with all that being said, who wants to join?

I'm not sure if the swap is going to start that early. I sent you a PM for more info as far as your arrival time.

I am interested! Sep 27 to Oct 3

Let me know if you get the 10 people needed to make this happen. Have you tried getting your thread added to the fridge swap sticky? I'm sure you would find a lot of takers there! I've been checking those listings for a month hoping that my dates would open up.

I could pick it up from you in person on the 27th (if you are checking out early on the 28th - I'm assuming that the 27th would be a better hand off day).

I could hand off the fridge to the next in line on the afternoon/evening of Oct 3 - as we will be leaving the resort around 6:00 a.m. on Sat the 4th.

I sure hope this works out - we would love to swap at the Pop!

I would like 11/1-11/8 or 9 Depending on what others need. We are leaving fairly early on the 9th so I can give it up late in the day on the 8th if needed.

I've got your marked down!

I'll check into getting it added to the sticky. I was going to wait until it was a definite go, but at this rate, I better get it added so more people see it!

I don't suppose you would be willing to have the fridge delivered early so that I can be in on this from Sept 8-13? Please let me know, it would be great, thanks.

Only if we can find a swapper(s) to fill 9/13(14) to 9/20(21) so we can keep it out of luggage services. I arrive on 9/20. Keep your fingers crossed!

I sent a PM to the mod to get on the Fridge sticky page!

Hopefully we can get some more people to get this fridge paid for & ordered!

Lots of open dates for POP fridge swap

I'm sure that many dates will fill in quickly once this gets added to the fridge swap sticky. I know I was continually viewing those for my dates and I recall others posting questions about October dates that appeared to be full in all of the others.
