Sorry that it took three tries to get a working fridge ... Hoping that is the end of any bad luck for you.

The last 2 times I've gotten a new refrigerator, the deliveryman always told me to put something in the refrigerator so I would be able to tell if it was cooling properly. A few bottles of room temperature water does the trick. And the instructions for our apartment/bar sized refrigerator also indicated the same thing.
oh good to know

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone had ever sent food and water down to pop ahead of time? Im thinking of doing this since I haven't rented a car. If so what is the specific address to use for pop and how would I put it on the box? Also has anyone ever done this through amazon and what is the correct way to put in the resort info there? Also how long will pop keep the box? We arrive December 12th and I'm so excited! Thanks.

Just a heads up to anyone staying at Pop Century now that they are not giving KTTW cards....you cannot charge a gift card using your Magic Band...tried to purchase some gift cards last night for Christmas presents and when I went to pay I was told I could not use my Magic Band. I was told I could use my KTTW card but not the Magic Band but since we are at Pop (and now I understand All Star is also no longer issuing KTTW cards) we do not have a KTTW card. Since I did not have cash or credit card on me (been here 10 days and haven't run into a problem charging) I had to walk away. CM said that there are still a lot of bugs to be worked out (yes, like the fact that I could not link my Premier Passport to my reservation so I could take advantage of the FP+ and also that I have to wait to get into the park while they get a "plaid" to check my pass, ID and then *try* to get the bar code to work in their iPad)...Disney has spent $$$$$$$ to get this technology and I think they should have worked out as many of the bugs as possible before eliminating things (like KTTW cards).

We ordered from Garden Grocer when we went. On their webpage, they have a drop down with POPS address. They deliver to the Disney resorts and other Orlando resorts regularly. Just have them deliver your stuff the day you arrive or the day before. Theyll hold it for you. Its so much cheaper to have food delivered. We just did breakfast food. We had the qsdp for lunch and dinner.

I'm sorry you had such a hard time. It's never easy when new things get set up and having to be the guiny pig. Hope by next year it's all worked out.

So happy that my mom and step dad have decided to join us on our trip next year. It's going to be their first time to WDW. My poor mom has had so many health issues and so I am really glad to make some memories with her. She will need to have a ECV but better that than for her to get worn out. So I will be checking things out on the disabilities for her My step dad is a big lover of Disney and Christmas so he's going to have the best of times. We missed the Osborne lights last time in 09 as we were going back for a private party and thought we were going to see it then not knowing it was not open for that party
So when I put in our request one room with be handi acces. and hopefully a connecting or just next door is fine too. I will also hope to get ground level just to avoid any elevator issues. She could never walk up stairs if she had to.
My oldest daughter is also trying to come and if she does she will bring my other granddaughter and she will be 23months then. My daughters bday is on Christmas and she really wants to come. I would love to help her but I am already paying for her son and my granddaughter from my other daughter.
