I hope your girls enjoy their surprise!!

I know the fridge situation has been talked about ad nauseum but still gotta ask...

We check-in in 13 days...any one there now who can report back if they have a working fridge that you did not put a request in for? Just trying to plan out if I order a 24 pack as planned. I didn't put a request in since medically we don't need it and didn't want to take one from some one who does...

Thanks!

I was there 2 weeks ago and did not have a working refrigerator. There was a sign on the refrigerator door about it not working. I requested for one to be in our room upon arrival. I was asked if it was for a medical need. I said no, it was not. There was not one in our room. We did buy a case of water and had room temperature water for the week.

Another vote here for the walk to/from the Poly...we always plan a morning walk there when we have breakfast at the Kona Cafe. We also try to fit in a dusk stroll if we have dinner booked at the Kona. It was a lovely walk before all the construction walls were up - it's still enjoyable, but I'm not sure how much of the wall has come down.

Enjoy your stay at the GF...you will fall in love with it!

From a report on Facebook...

Just wanted everyone to know that was worried about refrigerators that I got a report from Disney that they completed refrigerator replacement at the Polynesian, Boardwalk, Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club and Animal Kingdom Lodge.

You know... it might have to do with the type of cabinets they go in and what is available to replace... Hopefully the Grand will be done soon....

Hello, GF lovers! Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I know I've missed a lot of you heading to WDW - hope your stays were magical.

Tink rules and donald duck rocks, thanks for the update on the fridge situation. I hope they replace them quickly, I hate the lack of refrigerator in a resort room.

Sue M - congrats on your extra day, enjoy your time in Seattle. Safe travels (or are you already traveling? I get confused with the time difference!)

JoBird - Hey, you! Good to see you. I can't remember if there are TVs at the courtyard pool, but I think I have photos that should show them. BRB!

I didn't have any close up shots of the courtyard pool bar in my Photobucket account, of course! So I figured it would be quicker if I googled for images and found some prior to the refurb - there were small TV screens behind the bar area. I'll see if I can copy the images below, if not I'll post a link.





I assume they would have kept the TVs, they did little to the bar in the refurb if I recall.

Anyone know if there are any plans to replace the bedspreads with duvets in the next 6-8 months (contemplating switching my 2014 Poly reservation to GF due to the potential construction and DW prefers duvets and will expect them at GF)?

Thanks
