Just returned from 7 nights at POR (Magnolia building) and as I reported earlier we had no frig. I called the front desk a couple days after we checked in and was told no refrigerators were available, even with medical need, but he said he would credit our account $15 per night, so $105 total and it did show up on our final statement.

But it was quite inconvenient not having a refrigerator. With high temps and humidity it would have been nice having cold beverages available, without having to go back to the room (after visiting a park) to grab our mugs and go over to the food court for cold drinks.

Also, I wasted so much food because of not having a frig. The Caesar salads were so big, I could eat about half before I was full. Would eat a few more bites just because I knew I couldn't take it back to the room, but would always have some to throw away. And the ribs from Pecos Bill's, they were HUGE and I had 1-1/2 that I just couldn't eat. It killed me to have to throw them out!

I would have been very upset if we had not gotten the credit on our bill.

And I really don't even understand what is taking so long to put new refrigerators into the rooms.

My room at Pop (1470) was replaced on the 23rd and it looked like they were taking care of all of Pop building one between the 22nd and 23rd.

We are checking into POR on October 4th. Called POR 3 times to confirm we will have a fridge for medical reasons. We were assured we will definitely have one. 6 days until check in and have not received the dreaded fridge letter. Will report back!

Me, too. But either way I'm not too worried and don't put much stock into that letter.

There have been several reports this week of fridges being replaced at Pop. Although there are still lots to do, I would think they will finish with the resort before we arrive in 22 days...or 3 weeks from tomorrow. Yay!! And even if they aren't all replaced at Pop by then, my guess is it will be a bit easier to get one on request than it has been the last few months. Several people have indicated they magically got a fridge this week as soon as they inquired about a credit....

I just called WDW and spoke to a CM about refrigerators being replaced at CSR and she told me that all rooms now have working fridges. Hope that is true because I am placing an order with GG as we speak.

For what it's worth, I called yesterday to request a fridge for my upcoming trip in December and was told that within 2-3 weeks, the fridge rollout should be complete and all resorts and rooms should have fridges again.

I know that doesn't necessarily coincide with some of the letters going out, so who really knows, but maybe there is a little bit of hope...

Said I would report back...checked into POR today. We called 3 times before arrival to confirm fridge. Never received dreaded fridge letter. Checked in & took whatever room they had available (tired from 19 hour straight drive). CM said if there was no fridge in the room just call & they would bring one. Got to the room and no fridge. Called and they brought one up right away.

Hello! We just returned today from Pop. We were in the 50's section, building 3, second floor facing the lake. When we checked in I reminded them I needed a refrigerator to store my insulin. The CM stated he would have someone bring one shortly.
Once in my room, I noticed a fridge in the cabinet. It was plugged in with no notice on it not to use it. About a half hour later, a maintenance member showed up with a new fridge. It looked exactly like the one in the cabinet. He said the one we had already was one of the new ones and even checked it to be sure. My husband spoke with him for a few minutes and he learned that they are working on replacing these as quickly as they can get them.
I hope this information helps someone else!
