So excited for Friday.....WDW/POP here we come.

Once you enter the Pop property there is nothing to keep you from walking over to AoA, so I think driving between the parking lots must be open too.
Yes, believe the 50s and the LM's parking lots are accessible to each other. Way back in the thread someone commented on this.

Another fridge question...Wondering about keeping ice frozen or the ability to re-freeze. Would like to use those reusable freezer sticks to put in water bottles for our July trip.

There is no freezer section, it is only a fridge.

Thanks for the quick response...suppose we could get ice in our water bottles from the food court before heading out for the day...or just buy a cold water in the parks when we need one

You could get a bucket of ice at night before you go to bed and put the freezer stick in that overnight, it might work? I've done that to get water bottles very cold in hotels where there weren't fridges at all.

I was informed by Pop Century last week when I asked if my fridge wasn't keeping milk cold that the fridge isn't designed to keep food cold like that. It would need to be packed with ice to keep milk cold. Not sure if this was the "correct" answer, but our fridge was not cold enough for milk.

That's ridiculous, and not true.

Our fridge did not keep things super cold. We used our cooler with lots of ice for cold waters. We used fridge for jelly and cream cheese but helped it get/stay cold with cooler waters. It was really odd.

When we arrived our fridge was not cold. We had to turn it up. It took a good 24 hours for it to be cold.

Don't forget you can also get ice from any counter service place for free just by asking. We go in Aug/Sept most years and have specific large mouthed water bottles we always take with us for just this reason

A full gallon would not fit in the fridge, but a 1/2 gallon will and those are sold in the food court.

However, I am now a week out & have no list of room charges. Is there a way for me to now request this or am I out of luck? Who would I contact? Any ideas? TIA
I checked out 2/28. I did have a printout on my door, and I also had an email waiting when I got home.
