Heading to Pop this Friday. Not counting on having a fridge but really hope we do. We're there for 10 nights so maybe it will arrive art way through our visit?

I saw another post on here saying they were only offering the $15/night credit to people with a medical need for a fridge that didn't get one, may I ask if that was the case for you, or you just got the credit by asking? We're going to Pop at the end of October and I'm going to be hoping for that credit!

At the Pop right now and no fridge. Well, there is a fridge that we are not allowed to plug in. LOL The ice machine in our building is also out of ice, so we have to go to another building to get ice. We drove, so I have a big cooler we are using instead of the fridge. I have a big waterproof blanket under it to prevent leakage.

I'll admit to not knowing the backstory. But, why couldn't they leave existing fridge's in the room until replacements were ready? And, even if there was some compelling reason why they couldn't, how hard is it to get a new one in there? This has been dragging on forever. Seems as if this is much harder than it should be.

Risk of fire--kinda compelling.

Easy to replace a few. Replacing thousands across multiple resorts on different coasts takes a little longer.

Thanks for the response. I truly did not know the reason.
