Anyone there now in a room that can tell us about the refrigerator issue? (besides Venom who works at Disney) Andre, what have you heard?

I know last month or so there were issues with a Grand Califnornian refigerator causing a small fire I believe..so this may be connected.

As I live in California and frequent the DL boards mostly this is all I can think of. May be a recall for safety.

Nothing other than the released statements, and that they seem to be removing them between guest stays (so if you're there now, they won't remove the fridge from your room until after you leave).

So I guess they're only leaving the letter in unoccupied rooms so when a guest checks in it's, SURPRISE! NO FRIDGE!!!!

They should be switching out fridges between guests so odds are most if not all guests will not notice an inconvenience.

If that is the case, I wonder why is this in the announcement on disneytravelagents.com,
"Guests staying at these Resort hotels will be notified of the refrigerator removal
Via a letter in their room."?

It does not matter. Only maintenance for Disney knows exactly what is going on day to day. What happens today, may be totally different next week. I work in Facilities Management and things change day-to-day.

Have a plan B and you will be fine. It is not the end of the world.

Sorry, Venom, not true. There are not 18,000 refrigerators available to just switch out overnight. That's why Disney said several months.

If there's a risk of fire, then they'd need to remove all of the refrigerators immediately. I don't know that replacing them would even start happening until the risk was removed.

I thought they were switching them between guests. Certainly not leaving guest without refrigeration.

We are checking in on July 27th. Disappointed about the refrigerator issue but not going to let it ruin the trip for sure! We are thinking of breakfast alternatives. In the gift shop do they sell a 1/2 gal size if milk or even by the quart? We planned on cereal so if we stopped on each morning and purchased the milk we can certainly still have the cereal. My DSs will have no problem finishing it off each morning.

I'm going to wait on buying groceries until we are checked in and know the exact situation. We usually stay in a 2bdrm villa so the whole mod resort stay is different for us. We are excited for our first POR stay!

15 more sleeps til we are on the way!

Oh yes, they are. If they were only switching between guests, there would be no need for this big Hoopla.
