Allstar Music Family Suite

Just back. ASMU family suite had the fridge. I did, however, receive a notice in the mail while we were away notifying us that we might not have a fridge.

Clearly as I read here some don't think they need to follow rules !!! Glad we were ok .......
My Pop room in August was similar. Letter saying do not plug in and tag on cord but the people before me must have plugged it in. Of course they unplugged the Tv in doing so and that's how I found out. I called front desk an someone came and unplugged it and tapped it up again a few days later.

Art of Animation (Little Mermaid) did not have functional fridges upon check in (8/17,) but they were replacing at least some of Building 7's today. We got "home" to a row of fridges sitting outside rooms... lol!

They are smaller than the originals, and do not have a freezer compartment.

My DD and I will be at POR next month. It won't be the end of the world if we don't have a working refrigerator, but just inconvenient.

I do agree with the poster who thought it strange that Disney doesn't do more to ensure the non-working refrigerators are NOT plugged back in. To me it seems that the issue with the refrigerators is not all that serious, otherwise they would cut off the cords or remove the refrigerators from the rooms entirely. Simply unplugging them and leaving a note asking you not to plug it back it just doesn't seem like it is that serious of an issue then.

I mean, anything electrical can start a fire in a resort room. A lamp with a short in the cord, wiring in the walls, someone leaving a curling iron plugged in, or that crock pot someone brings and leaves turned on in their room so they have dinner ready and waiting when they come back to their room.

I did receive the letter about the refrigerators yesterday.

We arrived at POR in August 20 and had no fridge in the room. We asked about it the front desk expecting them to say that there were none. They seemed surprised and immediately brought one to our room.

We got our letter today also...We are to arrive 9/2. I called and requested a refrigerator starting weeks ago when I first heard of the removal. I booked through Disney website and I know people have reported either a $15/night credit or an added QS meal. Does anyone know where WDW posted they would do the credit for no refrigerator? We do have meds needing refrigeration, and we are flying - so no car.

Im guessing the CM you spoke with was either new, or severely misinformed.

Here's another question. Are they offering this to everyone at pop? Cause if so, that must be one massive fridge!
This isn't unheard of. This past winter I had to travel for work and when booking alerted the hotel that I would need a fridge to store breast milk in. I even called the day prior to confirm it. When I got there, no fridges were available. I had to hand over my milk to the front desk staff. Since it was that or let it go bad, I had no choice (no ice machines at that place).

We got back from the Poly today and we had a fridge that stayed cold. We came home and there was a letter from Disney about not having a fridge.

I wonder if since they are now (finally) sending out notification letters they will no longer give the $15 pn credit when requested.......

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.
Always took my own until they were part of the room .... looks like I might be hauling one again as I got my dreaded letter today

We just got back from CBR on Tuesday. Stayed in Jamaica 4606 from 8/15 -8/20. We had a fridge, plugged in, with no note about unplugging it or anything. It worked well.

We stayed at Pop, in the 90's (can't remember the room number. It was right by the stairway with the computer, facing the pool) from 8/13 -8/15. The fridge was unplugged with a note saying not to use it.
