Allowed or not allowed?

I've read tips about bringing a toaster to your resort. I thought this was a great idea and was excited to bring mine. But then I've read that other people are saying this is not allowed! (Staying at POFQ btw) Whats the deal? Is it allowed or not allowed? Whats the official Disney word on this?

I would suggest using the food court toaster- if they have one. Food toasted in a toaster leaves a smell, especially if it is crispy LOL. I wouldn't want to smell that all vacation long.

I thought I read that toasters were not allowed if they weren't already in the room. DVC villas and maybe the family suites have them.

I agree, use the ones in the the food court.

Yeah I knew about the one(s) in the food court but I guess I'm just lazy/want to save time and would like to pop in a few bagels while Im getting ready and eat in peace and not have to wait to get dressed to go there and back yada yada. I guess no one can quote a source that confirms its prohibited though?

I'm not sure Disney would think they would have to tell people to not bring cooking equipment along to use in their hotel rooms. If they had to make a list of everything not allowed, it would be miles and miles long! As far as I know they don't say I can't bring along a bbq grill, but I'm pretty sure it isn't allowed!

Common sense is you don't cook in your hotel room, unless it has a kitchen area. Your neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate the smells, and it is way too easy for a fire to start.

we brought a waffle iron last year and made waffles in all star movies... we asked, and we were told as long as we didnt keep it plugged in when it wasnt in use, and were generally responsible... but we were making waffles there for a kid with allergy issues, soooooo ake that for what it is.

Regarding the smell disturbing other guests I don't see how that would happen???? And even if I did cook a Poptart and someone smelled it I don't think someone is going to be knocking on my door complaining they smell something fruity coming from my room. I mean if people can smell that, am I going to smell someone changing a poopy diaperI would hope not!

I thought I had read of someone recently bringing a toaster - CSR maybe? - and we were planning to bring one this weekend for PopTarts as well.

Guess we might have to rethink that plan?

Agree. Yep.. it is easy to catch a fire.

You'll always get opinions and not Disney rules on here. I "think" you'd be fine with it. Unplug it when you're not in the room.

I think the DVC rules specifically say no BBQ-ing on your balcony! So maxiesmom - you just never know what they will decide to write down! LOL.

I agree with the part that it could potentially cause a fire.

I'm pretty sure, however, that when staying in a DVC, you may very well be able to smell what others are cooking in their villas, just like you could if it's a hotel room vs. a villa.

That being said, I wouldn't bring my own toaster.

(not talking directly to the poster above me.. this is just a general post. but
this is just my thought..)

Maybe it's a little bit different with DVC because they are fully equipped in the kitchen, with an exception of bbq grill and someone might just bring one so they can bbq outside or at the balcony. So it seems like it's natural for them to let their DVC guests know this rule because they can cook, but just not bring a grill.

Since POFQ or any value, moderate, regular deluxe, they don't have any appliances in the room (with an exception of the cooler/fridge), it's very unlikely for anyone to actually bring a bbq grill because this is not the type of resort where you can cook in your room or grill outside. So I am assuming this is the reason why they don't need to announce that it is prohibited to bring kitchen appliances including the grill. However, it won't hurt to ask the front desk if you can use the toaster in the room.

I don't take a toaster but I do bring an electric water kettle. I like to brew myself a pot of tea in the morning because it just isn't the same brewing it in a cup. I have done this every visit I have made to WDW and I have never been told it isn't allowed. I unplug the kettle and put it away after each use but it is clearly visible by mousekeeping, so I have never hidden it. Whether or not it is truly allowed I cannot say because I have never asked. I just figured if it was a problem they would definitely let me know.

Being from a Fire Department family I can tell you that most every state has safety laws that state: 'in dwellings used by multiple families/occupants, no electrical equipment can be used unless the company's (Disney) electrical workers inspect and pass it's safety qualifications'. With so many hotel rooms guests are lucky that Disney provides basics like mini-fridges and coffee makers.
