Just back from CR Tower Room 8/26-9/3, had a fridge even though I hadn't specifically requested one. It looked to have been recently installed as it still had the packing tape holding the shelves in place.

Side note: if my experience is any indication, the new fridges still don't stay cold in those stupid cabinets unless you leave the doors open (and mousekeeping inevitably closes those doors every day even if you leave them open meaning you return to non-cool drinks at night ).

Quick question - did either your party or your inlaws have to ask for one once you got there?

Thanks again for the info. Hope you had a great time!
Neither of us requested a fridge. So I take that as a good sign that they have plenty, but no one told me that for sure. Good luck hope you have a great time.

So funny. I would leave the cabinet open everyday, and everyday Mousekeeping would close it. I even tried just leaving it opened a crack. They still closed it. At least we had fridges. It sure helped out with breakfast and cold drinks at night after the parks.

Been trying to read through all of the pages. Does anyone have a report on them being back in the All Star Movie rooms? Arriving on Sept 15 and anxious to find out.

We were at POP Aug 4-10. We had 3 rooms, and all 3 of the fridges had notes asking us not to use them. We had to ask twice for a fridge for my mother..she is diabetic.

Anyone have any info on fridges at All star Sports? I'm hoping they might be bumped up in priority because of the food court renovation.

Fridges have returned to several hotels

The fridges have been replaced at the Art of Animation, Boardwalk, Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, Yacht Club and Beach Club. They have also been replaced at the Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier at Disneyland.

We are at All-Star Movies right now in the Mighty Duck section first floor. We have two connecting rooms and both have working fridges.

Have any early October guests gotten the letter staying they might not have a fridge when they arrive? We haven't received it yet, but we're still 39 days out.

I'm at 45 days and no letter. Staying at CBR. I did request one for breast milk though so not sure if I would get it. I have 2 other families traveling with me they havne't received a letter either.

I've heard mixed reviews. Folks ask for it and then they get a fridge and others ask for the credit and get it. I've read a few not get anything.

If you don't have a fridge, you do need to ask for the credit. They won't just give it to you. My friend was there last month and asked about it and was told we don't offer the credit up front until we are asked and that's why it's not automatically applied.
