**Update**: For those of you with fridge concerns, you may want to call the resort you are staying. A poster stated they called POR and was told their fridges would be replaced by July 31 : )
Disney said 'at least four months' not 'up to'. I am not saying it won't happen, just if you NEED a fridge you should make other plans and not rely on the CM.

Exactly, you have to take everything a CM says with a grain of salt But when it gets close to time of travel, one may want to call their resort just to see??? If Disney is already talking POR done this summer yet, that is a good sign they are able to start replacing as soon as they become available.

I posted this on the other thread, but:

Just a heads up: I just called to schedule a first haircut for my DS at Harmony Barbershop, but anyway, the CM told me that a previous CM had put my city in as Fot Way and not Fort Wayne; could be why I have NOT received any snail mail??? Might want to check???

Wow...that's a lot. But 4 months just sounds like a long time.

I think I checked them but they didn't have any flights. I just wanted the cheapest airfare I could find. We would have flown out of BWI if they had cheaper flights.

I didn't realize the barbershop took reservations. Are reservations needed for any haircut, or just first ones? I was thinking of having our DD's get "hair done" there one day (though I'm not exactly sure what that will entail).

Disney sounds like a great place for your DS's first cut!

I am getting so impatient! I just worked out my budget - and we are good to go....I can get a great deal on flights right now, but I hesitate to book them until I have my package.

They do reservations and walk-ins, but I just wanted to make sure DS didn't have to wait You can call 407-WDW-STYLE to make an appointment They will answer as BBB, but they do barbershop too!

I think they now have a flight out every day except Thursday. They only have one Orlando flight out per day though so you do have to more flexible as far as time.

Frontier gave me 1 flight option when I booked. I couldn't argue the price, so I adjusted our stay as necessary. I just dropped a park hopper day, so it wasn't much of a change.

That was my thinking too. Can't argue with their pricing!
Yes, we are now planning on just doing DTD our first night there and skipping the parks altogether, that way the kids will be energized and ready to go to MK early in the morning! Originally we were going to come back on a Thursday, but since airfare was cheaper there, I talked my husband into staying another night with that savings. : ) I see no negatives here!
