They have been disconnected because there had been a fire caused by a fridge in a room at DL so all those same models are a hazard. They have ordered new fridges and will replace the faulty ones but Disney estimated it might take until October to get them all replaced.

Are people that are there now still getting the $15 credit for not having a fridge? I'd rather the fridge but if it's not yet replaced I would gladly take the credit.

I believe you still get the credit, but only if you ask about it.

Is it $15 per night? I could use that and order a mini fridge to be delivered from Walmart

We will be arriving Sept 13 and were able to customize our Magic Bands as of yesterday! I'm pretty excited about testing out the new technology.

The only thing that I didn't like - once I clicked customize on each one, it automatically processed my order. I couldn't come back and make changes and there was no place to "finalize". I was doing the last one and I thought I would go back and change the color of one of them, but it automatically finished my order off after and I couldn't go back and make changes. So make sure your happy with your color choices as soon as you choose them.

After I finished there was an option to go back and make changes. I finalized it and then before they were delivered I had the option that said change on the side.

Now that we switched from Music to Pop (can't wait to try it for the first time), I really hope we'll get to test Magic Bands. We're not really into planning a lot for our trips so I'd like to see how we can make the most out of that new technology without over planning!

If I don't order/bring certain foods (many that need to be kept cold) I will struggle to get enough calories at breakfasts and for snacks. I know I can use a cooler and will if necessary but it is an added frustration when you plan to be out and about most of the day. I hate to be worried that my food might spoil if I don't make it back to get more ice in time, especially with reports that the ice machines are frequently running out of ice. I would have considered booking differently if I had known our fridges were in jeopardy but of course this was an unforeseen circumstance and I know it can't be helped. We have added that we need a fridge for medical needs to our reservation. I know no one can give me a definite answer either way but I am just wondering how likely it is that it will be fulfilled.

Thanks!
I would ask for a medical fridge, but if you do not get one - there has been plenty of ice to be had these last 8 days...

If they are out of medical fridges while you are there then they will keep your food in the back fridge at Everything POP food court. It will be a pain to have to have a CM get what you need from theback each meal, but it's an option they have offered in the past, before fridges were standard in the rooms.

We're driving down for our late September vacation. We're now thinking of bringing DH's truck so we can bring a mini-fridge we have to use in the room. We have planned all along to drive my car as it get's much better gas mileage. I wonder how the lack of a fridge is being handled at the deluxe and moderate resorts. I also wonder if they will get replacements before the values.
