    Yup.

    I believe you will have to wait until you get to your room. I don't think the CMs at the Check In desk will know if your room has a fridge or not.

    Everyone I have seen post about it have gotten the credit once they asked for it. I have not seen one person say they did not get it. Disney announced the $15 credit so I can't see why they would refuse it.:thumbsup2

    The credit is applied to your account (as in room keys) and If you have charging added to the room acct. then you just have a credit to use. At the end of the trip, any credit left on the account goes on the credit/debit card that was set up for charging on the room key. IF no charging was available then they will give you cash back. Anyways that is how it worked when we were there a couple weeks ago.

    At POP we had a room only with no charging on the room keys. Therefore no CC was attached to the account. I had used disney GC's to pay for the room. I did have one of the disney GC's with me that I had used to pay for the room. However, at the end of the stay, I simply went up to 'check out' and there was a room credit of $30 on my room account. She handed me $30 cash and I was on my way!!

    At POR we had a $60 credit for the fridge, we also had a credit from another problem that we had and so we ended up with a fairly large credit. We DID have charging priv. on that room key so we used most of the credit during our stay. At the end of the stay upon check out the credit was applied to the credit card that was used for the charging to the room.

    We returned a week ago and I knew about the credit, but I was never offered it. There were other circumstances involved, that we let the lack of refrigerator in our room go. We were at POFQ. I am fortunate enough to go again in September. Maybe I'll ask for it, if we don't have a fridge in our room.

    Yeah I don't think they offer it...you have to ask. They probably don't even know what rooms have working refrigerators and what don't at this point of the mess.

    And my husband, the fireman, says the people that plug their non working refrigerators in and hope for the best are crazy! Hope we aren't staying in the same building of someone who decides to do that....:sad2:

    So true!

    It seems that if you ask for it you will get it, but you do have to bring it up with them and you may need to request a manager in order to be successful. It seems like some people have been told its for people with medical needs only but asking for a manager or pressing on fixes that :thumbsup2

    The announcement was made on July 10 or 11 that it could take up to four months to replace all the potentially faulty refrigerators in all the resorts across the country (three states).

    So, yes, there should be working refrigerators in all rooms by November 10.

    Very easy for maintenance person who unplugged defective units to cut the plug off....then replugging in units is a moot point..

    This worked the same for us too just this week. We received a credit and family traveling with us with no charge card attached to their reservation received cash back. The credit is not offered, you have to ask for it.

    I got a letter in the mail today about Pop not having working refrigerators for my trip. Am I still eligible for the credit even though I have been notified in advance about the refrigerator?

    To be honest I would have an extra $15 than a fridge. We usually stay 9 nights. That's $135 of souvenirs.

    Same here, except 7 nights, haha. I keep hoping maybe they won't get the fridges replaced at Pop before my October trip.

    I guess I missed the memo on this. I stayed for 8 nights two weeks ago at Pop Century, our fridge had a letter on it and didn't work. Had no idea I could have gotten money out of it. That's $120 I could have used on other expenses, bummer.
