The studio refrigerators (at least at WDW) are the under-the-counter height ones and they do have small freezer compartments. They are large enough to hold a full size ice tray and a large "family size" box of 24 frozen waffles (if you take them in their wrappers out of the box). I am assuming the VGC studios will have similar refrigerators. I always freeze a couple of "Blue Ice" blocks too.

Studio Freezer Compartment

Just returned from VGC studio -- the fridge is under the counter, but it does have a small freezer compartment in which is a small ice tray. We have only kept frozen lemonade in the freezer compartment and it has not stayed too "frozen." It is usually soft when we get it out, but not completely thawed.

It also holds a 1/2 gallon of milk in the door compartment, but it will not hold a full gallon jug.

Hope this helps!

Thanks all for the replies! Glad to hear that we'll be able to freeze our ice packs and keep Gogurts for the kids. We're 3.5 weeks away from our trip...just hoping the OSHA issues get resolved and Space and Soarin and back open. Fingers crossed!

I have a dumb question.....will we be able to ship any items home from VGC? If so, is it the same process as the resorts in WDW? I am not talking about food related items (I know they can't do that), more like breakable items like ornaments, snowglobes, etc....We always do this while we are in WDW, but wasn't sure if VGC will do this too or would we have to go someplace off property to get our souvenirs shipped home. I have a tendency to buy items that I would not want/could not put on an airplane. Thank you for your help.

I think this is a missed business opportunity. You should be able to have an order placed the night before, and they have a runner bring them by your room at 6:30 or 7am... I'm sure they would do a brisk business.

It probably could still be heard in the room, but it would have to be quieter than what we heard on the way in and out as it slammed each time. I even gave up trying to catch it - I was afraid of losing a finger.
I'd probably go adjust the closer myself, or strongly suggest that maintenance do so.

You may have to call them, I am sure that you can... but I have never done it. I have done it from WDW but never from VGC.

Hopefully someone else that has can pipe in.

There is a business office at the Grand that will help with shipping. If the items you want to ship are from Disney shops, the shops will also arrange shipping at point of purchase, or later on, as long as you have your receipts. Happy shopping!

Thank you, Thank you for your help . I am trying to get my barrings in order before we leave. It sounds like they do it exactly the same as they do in WDW.....it's better to be safe and ask before we get there then be sorry later .

I've sent off emails to DVC satisfaction before regarding this issue. No actual response aside from fluff.

Our waitlist for 50 VGC, Aug UY came through today.

Only 4 months so that's faster than I thought it would be.

Congratulations! I went on the wait list about 6 weeks ago. I have a June use year but told my guide I would take any use year.

I hope your waitlist comes through soon. I almost removed us from the waitlist as we had an offer accepted on 150 point SSR resale contract, but the seller backed out and now I'm happy they did. I know the initial cost would have been cheaper, but we use our points at VGC more often than WDW.

Where are you all purchasing your contracts from? We would like to add a small contract as we only have 100 pt's now and would like to be able to stay in a 1br for a long weekend every year.

I know the lady we purchased our contract from at the Disneyland location said there is a wait list for VGC. I would guess you could call DVC and just ask to be put on the wait list. She said it takes about 6 months.
