Any Updates On A Fridge?

Arriving 10/07 and wondering if anyone had heard anything further on the Magical Cooling Machines?

We don't actually "need" one, but it would certainly make two weeks a heck of a lot more comfortable.

We arrive at Pop the 19th, too. No letter about the fridge yet, and no MagicBands either.

They are still in "fulfillment" (where they have been for a week now) yet nobody at Disney seems to know why when I call. I've been given the excuses "we (Disney) should receive the tracking number any moment now" (that was 2 days ago), "there are a lot of orders bring progressed so it takes time" (yet everyone else arriving the same day got theirs last week), and my favorite excuse, it IS in the testing stage yet". To which I said, "so they may or may not show up before or trip, and we could get stuck with ugly gray ones when we arrive at the resort even though we customized them 60 days before or trip?" The CMs only responder was "Yes". Grrrrr....

I really thought we would love the MBs but I am definitely not impressed with this glitch that they can't give me an explanation or help with.

Checked in yesterday and had no fridge. I went to the desk and asked of they could do anything as me and my daughter drink lots of water and would like one but understand If we don't have any priority. The Cm got on the phone and said no problem we will deliver one! Pixie dust!!!! But now I have an issue I paid for a priority pool side room but now after spending the night we hear kids till late and it's hard for my daughter to sleep and then for the first time she had night terrors!!!!! Woke me up 4 times I was so scared! Do you think if I asked nicely we could be moved somewhere quieter? I was googling night terrors and they said keeping a schedule and having quiet down time before bed helps :s buying don't want to come across as a winer

Room Request

Since my wife and I are both born in the 70's, I updated my online check in to request a room on the highest floor, lake view and in the 70's building.

Did I make a good choice? We are traveling with DD5 and DD3 and I booked a standard room, with 2 double beds.

They said they were just staging them. I assumed they would be installed by someone else later today. Soooooo......we just got back and we don't have a new (or working) fridge. The old one (unplugged) is still in our room. Very strange. The fridges were not in boxes. I wonder what happened to them.
Update: We got a new fridge installed yesterday!

That being said I called Disney Travel and they said I should be fine to check in without the photo ID since I have the original credit card, my Social Security card and the temporary driving permit I was given by my DMV.

Are they correct, or will I have problems checking in to Pop?
Are you driving or flying? You'll have some extra hoops to jump through if you are flying, so you should check with your airline. With respect to checking in at the resort, your temporary driver's license will work. Do NOT give anyone your Social Security Card -- I suggest you not travel with it. Keep that thing locked up and away from anyone's eyes. If you happen to have an old, expired driver's license, that should work for picture ID for the resort.

I would go down to the front desk and tell them your situation in person. Assuming there are rooms available, I'm sure they will move you.

When staying at POR we had booked a 7 day package and then one night for our arrival night on a seperate reservation. We didn't need the dining on the one night. We were able to combine the rooms and so other than paperwork we didn't have to make any changes or switch rooms. Anyone done this at POP with success?

Woke up and went to the gym earlier than usual because we have lunch plans today. OBVIOUSLY UPS came while I was out and tried to deliver my Magic Bands. The MB need to be signed for, so I'm I'll be awaiting the second delivery attempt tomorrow morning

No Mickey Mail yet, though. Maybe this week?
