Those two resorts aren't anywhere near each other.

My mistake. I just glanced reading the thread and thought it was Pop food court. That's what I get for trying to read while watching a toddler.

DH and I are only scheduled for 3 nights 2 days so I figure we wont use the food court much. We were at AOA for 3 nights 3 days in February and only ate at the food court once. We are going to Tuscar House our first morning and will most likely only eat at Movies on Sunday before we leave.


I stayed at Movies several years ago with my oldest and youngest DS. We were in a non preferred Fantasia room and loved our location. We walked out the door and saw Herbie. My son loved it, but Herbie disappeared the last day we were there.

I loved staying at Movies and am looking forward to going back. I do not understand why so many people are dedicated to POP. Movies just seems cozier to me.

Does anyone know how big the refrigerators are? We'll probably have some food & drink items delivered, but I don't want to get too many perishables if they won't fit in the fridge.

Thanks.

Are the washers and dryers still coin operated or have they gone to a card system?

This may no longer be relevant now that all the fridges are being removed. To be replaced within 4 months.

OH NO!!

Apparently it was announced today that ALL room fridges at Disney resorts are being removed or disconnected due to a problem. They will eventually be replaced, but it is expected to take at least 4 months.

I'm really bummed about not having a fridge in the room. It's where we kept our water bottles and milk for cereal in the morning. It may not seem like a big deal to some, but it's a feature we utilize every day on our trip.

I really hope the free dining rumors for fall become a reality. If not, it might just make more sense for some families to stay offsite.

Some ways to interpret what was written...

They used the word "some" to describe fridges that were defective, and they used the word "all" to describe all the resorts. So that can mean some fridges have been identified at all resorts...perhaps not all fridges at all resorts.

It could take at least 4 months to replace...this could mean they cannot replace them all at once, but that the duration of the replacement work could stretch out for while. I'd also wonder about the use of the words "at least" -- sometimes people use the wrong phrase to mean "at most."

Hi everybody, we are coming aaaaalll the way from Argentina and staying at the ASMo from Sept 17 to 27.
First time there, we've stayed at Sports in 1998 and POP on 2011 and 2012 so I was trying to decide what was the best area.

We don't mind being a little far away from the lobby/food court, in fact we enjoy quiet areas, close to the parking lot, so I was thinking that the Mighty Ducks could be a good option, specially because it is so close to the ASMu lobby!

Anyone stayed there and was using the ASMu foodcourt more than the ASMo's ? Is that an option ?

Thanks for your help

Just be aware that Sports food court is being refurbished so the guests there are being bussed to Music and Movies.

Yes, thanks, I'm aware of that since it was announced.
Not good news of course but we did the upgrade to the Dining Plan so we will only use the hotel foodcourt to have breakfast.
