    There was a recall and one of them caught on fire at GF. They are hoping to have the work fully done within 4 months. There are over 30,000 rooms on property, and while not every room will be affected, it will take time to check everything. If you request a fridge, but they do not have one for you when you arrive, you will receive a $15 per night credit for your stay.

    I called today to check to see if I had a pin, and of course I didn't. :(
    The CM did tell me to check again around the 15th. I hope she's right!

    I'd not read that either, interesting. We were thinking of bringing our fridge just in case since I take my Almond Milk with me and like to put leftover cheesecake in the fridge too LOL. I also use it to put orange juice and waters in.....so again, we thought about taking ours just in case. I hate lugging it all the way to Florida though and then there being one in the room when we get there. I may just rent one or something.

    So is there any more speculation on the FDing extension being released soon?

    It was posted on the Disney Travel Agent site yesterday. I am personally not a TA, but I have read it in several other places, including here and on Facebook. :goodvibes

    I found this online: http://www.thebestofwdw.com/2013/07/disney-world-to-offer-credit-for.html

    I am wondering if this applies to all guests or just those who need one due to medical needs.

    And if we would like to request one, do we do it prior to arrival or at check-in? Hmmm...

    It was on the TA site in response to the many TA questions and comments. If the request for a refrigerator cannot be accommodated, the manager will be called and an offer of a room credit of $15 per room per night will be extended. This is ONLY if a refrigerator cannot be provided and the vacationer has requested one.

    Phone lines open at 7:00 am eastern time.

    No solid news yet, but DV holders usually get a 3-day head start before GP offer opens. I suggest marking your calendar to call first thing on July 29th. Worst that could happen is they tell you offer hasn't started yet. Even if they do say that, it's a good idea to either ask them to check with a supervisor (not all CMs read their memos right away/do not have up to date info so may not know that DV offer has started). You could also just call back and talk to a different CM. but if DV offer does start that day, once you get through to a Cm, hang on until you get the FD discount applied. The FD threads will LIGHT UP when the FD offer goes live!

    This is a leak or confirmed information? I noted that some previous expected dates are now missing like the first week of December.

    I can tell you that Black and Danny have given solid info in the past. Know that things could change, but I would be willing to put money down on a bet that what Black posted is confirmed August 1st. It would make sense if some dates have been removed with all the PINS that have gone out. They probably don't have availability on those dates anymore, or some other marketing tweek.

    I don't care where it comes from as long as it is true... and Joe "Black" and Danny have always been true to their posts. I also would like to know about the Disney Visa.... I will probably just call July 29,30, and 31st and ask ;)

    We are also checking on on 11/11 :thumbsup2
