Disney removed fridges at most resorts due to an electrical problem. It's taking a while to replace them all.

got the letter today for our stay starting sept 2nd. bummed. have medical needs. i asked if people were really upset and CM said yes, that it is very wide-spread - like 40,000 of them - even Euro disney. i feel bad for them, but the frig/kitchen is part of the reason we chose to stay in a suite. we'll see. encouraged to see at least one person on this thread say they had a frig . . .

for those that are asking - there's some sort of electrical issue with the refrigerators . . . can't be used safely.

I received a form letter about refrigerators today too. I heard that they finished replacing the refrigerators at the Beach Club, so I called and the CM said Beach Club is done, so ignore that letter.

They are probably sending it out to everyone regardless of whether they are done with the resort at which the person receiving the form letter is staying.

I glad they are warning people now.
why did you throw out the food? you could have put it in the big fridge at the checkin while you got a cooler. Ice is free

WE arrive in POR on Sept 2 and have not received a letter but we live in Canada so it would take a bit longer to arrive.

It has been posted if you ask for a fridge and they can't give you one they are giving $15/day--but I have heard you have to ask

This all surprises me. Europe uses a different current, so different outlets, so one would expect different appliances made by different manufacturers than what's used in the United States. In all the announcements and all the threads about the refrigerator problems, this is the first time anybody's ever even hinted at Europe. And the suites aren't affected. At all.

Don't believe everything a Cast Member tells you.

We check in on the 15th guess I should receive a letter soon. Have to admit I'm a bit annoyed - that they leave it so late to officially tell people AND I know folks earlier on got a $15 / night credit and I suspect we won't be getting that.

I know I know ice will keep things cold but it is a pain to go down and get ice daily - fridge is so much easier!

OK vent over.

People are still getting the credit but they have to ask for it

Thank you - that's good news. I'm hoping when we arrive (since it's a slower time of year) we'll luck into a fridge but that would soften the blow if we have to keep filling the cooler with ice (we eat breakfast in the room).

I'd rather have the credit than the fridge at this point.

Got my letter today. Staying at POR 9/20-9/29. We usually stay at Pop and was really looking forward to this perk.

I'm arriving at POR on Sunday, have not received any letter and have already ordered groceries to be delivered. Should I call and make a request? Or worry once I get there?

I would fax them. Here is a thread about faxing requests to POR.
