Checked into Coronado Springs today. Had requested a fridge for DHs medicine. There was one in the room, seems to be a new one!

[QUOTE=goofyintoronto;49327677]EXCUSE ME???? They wanted you to leave your food at the front desk fridge!? I think not!! Were they serious? Sorry but thats disgusting. I would never! how do I know what the staff are doing to my food when im not there? So lets say i wanted milk for my cereal, i'd have to come up to the front desk to get it? Wow!! just wow. Im guessing the CM you spoke with was either new, or severely misinformed.

nope that was the original response we got also over at ASSp. rather upset hubby you want me to put my food where? was his response.

Here's another question. Are they offering this to everyone at pop? Cause if so, that must be one massive fridge!
Really?

Do you ever eat at any restaurant, TS, CS, fast food, etc, ANY? Why do you find it so gross and unreasonable to leave food with the front staff at the hotel but it is perfectly acceptable to eat food prepared by complete strangers and served by complete strangers? I guess I just don't understand why hotel CMs would be so much more likely to do something gross to your food but anyone else that comes into contact with your food never would?!

I can understand, accept and completely agree with the fact that it is an inconvenience to have to walk to the lobby everytime you wanted a snack but the nontrust issue is beyond me especially since these are the same people you have given your credit card and other personal information to.

Thumbs up

Checked into POFQ the 19th ... The first room they assigned us we didn't like the location (it also did not have a fridge). The room we did end up moving to is awesome and we have a new fridge. When they were looking to assign us a different room I did ask for a fridge and they told me they didn't know which rooms had fridges or not so when we got in the room to see if there was one in the room and if not to call the front desk and ask for one but the chances were really slim of getting one. At this point they offered me a $15 credit however I told them I would rather have a fridge than a credit so I would call and request one if we didn't have one. We had to wait a bit to get into the room so maybe they sent over some Disney magic because our room had a new fridge???

My son has a medical condition that requires daily injections that need to be refrigerated. We have requested a refrigerator on our reservations for medical reasons so I hope it will be available at check in at pop. If we don't get one it will be an inconvenience but the $15 room credit is pretty generous for the trouble. I think we will be fine either way but my only concern with using the fridge at the front desk is if we will have to wait in line behind people checking in to get to our meds since we administer it a bedtime and the front desk is always low on staff at night. Does anyone know what the procedure is on this?

Checked into AoA LM room # 9828 on 8/15 and there was a fridge unplugged with a sign saying not to plug it in & not to use it. We called & asked for a fridge & one was brought to our room within 40 mins.

Do you think the fridges will all be replaced over the next 2 months, or is that just wishful thinking? We are staying at Pop and I know that is one of the resorts with very few working fridges at this time.

About the credit...how does that work if you booked through travelocity
?
do you get $15 each day to use for things charged to the room?

we just stayed at all star sports this past week. they have some rooms where they've had them replaced but overall most do not. they went off property to get one for a member of our travel group who is an insulin dependent diabetic and needed one to store his meds. they said the ones they put in were recalled due to mold issues and are in the process of being replaced. they also offered to keep his meds in a frig they had up front until one could be put in our room but we didn't choose to do that given things get lost easily and we didn't want to risk that happening.
