We received the same letter today and are scheduled to check into the BLT on 8/31 (2 bedroom & 1 bedroom). Sounds like we should be ok as this is DVC? Kind of odd we got the letter, but hoping there is nothing to worry about.

I'm just curious so please don't accuse me of trying to burn down Disney!!

It's a safety issue and is taken very seriously, as it should be. There isn't anything that can be done to stop someone from plugging one in but I think Disney is hoping that with the notice people will use common sense. Also not all resorts have had fridges for years. Values have only had them for about a year now.

You know I completely understand what you mean and I would not personally plug it in if I was there but I do wonder about the safety issue. If WDW was truly that concerned why would they not remove all of the fridges from the rooms. And for the excuse that would produce from them why would they not cut the plug off of each fridge prohibiting it from ever being plugged in? Yes it may take some time to get that done resulting in hours paid but isn't it worth the lives you are possibly saving if it is a safety issue? Let's admit it PP is not the only "rebel" out there.

Just talked with a CM. We are staying at POP Sept 2-11....she said there will be no fridges in ANY of the rooms. I am pretty sure I have seen a few posts about people having them at POP (for medical reasons). Kind of a bummer, but we will be in Disney World so I think we will get over it quickly!!

The letter was probably prepared for mailing a while ago. I wouldn't worry but you could always call the front desk to be sure.

Yeah I got the same letter today which was why I called to check just to be sure. We are staying DVC, so I was confused why we got it in the first place.

Just came back from All Star Music, and as soon as I got to my room I noticed the fridge was bad and had the note on it, and the wire rolled-up. Called the front desk and asked for a working fridge, and said I had medicine that needed to be cooled. One was delivered within 20 minutes. My parents tried 5 minutes after me and couldn't get one. It took them 3 days, but had one for the last 7 we were there. My advice is to just keep calling if you get to your room and notice that your fridge isn't working. People checkout every day all day, so keep trying. Get to know the name(s) of the people at the Front Desk and talk to them as soon as you get there. Tell them it's very important that you find one as soon as one is available. A lot of people don't even bother calling, or continue to call once they get denied one. Stay vigilant, and good luck! Hopefully next summer this will not be an issue anymore.

So I have a couple of questions on this fridge situation. A couple of months ago when this issue first came up I thought people said the All star resorts were safe because those fridge's were put in recently and did not have a problem but it looks like they are replacing those as well now correct? I have a young son who we need a fridge for but not for medical reasons so I would never ask and take one away from someone who really needs one so my thought is it possible to purchase a small mini fridge and use it at the resort or will Disney not be ok with that?

in other news 29 days until our 10 day trip so I am sure we can get by no matter if we have a fridge or not.

I don't think Disney would have a problem with you brining a small fridge. If I'm not mistaken there used to be a thread on these boards for people who would share a fridge -- use it then drop it off at the front desk for the next people checking in who would then do the same. I think it was the Fridge Swap. Maybe we should start that again.

We have a young son also, and need a fridge for his milk, PediaSure, etc., so my TA called and asked if we would be allowed to bring our own small fridge, and they said that would be no problem at all.
They then offered to put a fridge request on our reservation for infant needs, and said we should have no problem getting a fridge with the request with infant needs. So, you may try calling and asking them to add that request also.
We have 29 days until our trip also!

ETA: we're staying at AllStar Sports
