    Fridge swap details:

    - Cost: The fridge has been paid for by the founding members of the swap and is considered FREE to anyone that would like to reserve it and use it responsibly

    - Please keep the fridge clean!

    - If you can't arrange to meet the person before you, and need to pick it up from ASMovies storage, you will want to go to ASMoves luggage services. Give the CM your information (name, ressie #, check-in date) and they will locate the box with the fridge for you.

    - If there is a gap between you and the next swapper, and you need to leave it at ASMovies storage, you will tape a piece of paper to the box that says something like "Hold for guest (name), ressie #, and check-in date. Then you can have luggage services pick it up or take it their yourself. Either way, make sure to get a claim ticket, or receipt, for the fridge-Very important

    - The home resort for the fridge is the All-Star Movies resort. We welcome anyone staying at one of the all-stars but we ask is that you have the fridge brought back to the Movies resort at the end of your stay. There are luggage carts available to do so and bell-services would be happy to help.

    Coffee Maker now included for guests staying past Sept 9! A nice member has genorously decided to donate a coffee maker to the swap after she leaves. We will provide a pack of filters to go along with it.

    We'll be at the All stars music June 10-23 and I want to get in on or start one. I don't mind if it's at Music, Movies or sports, since they are next to each other. The Pop ones only stick with the Pop, so I have been looking elsewhere. I may have a way to have one picked up as I have a relative in the Orlando area. Let me know. I don't care how many or few join, just want to split the cost some.

    Great guys. I'm gonna start updating a list in my first post to keep track of who wants to get this swap going. I figure we'll need to be able to chain at leat 4 reservations to really make it go.

    Like I said in my first post though, I won't have any transportation. If no one is available to start it before I get there, I'll see about having one delivered with our groceries.

    Keep the dates comming! I'm sure there's tons of Dis'ers staying at ASMo this summer!

    Amps, thanks so much for doing this!! I'm already seeing that I am going to save some $$$.....would you and anyone else on the list be willing to add a coffee maker with the fridge??? I was going to bring one down with me in my suitecase but this would be easier!!

    Anybody interested in adding a microwave? I was just going to buy one for 30 or 40.00 but if anyone else is interested.... I don't want to bother bringing one. We are driving but in a station wagon there's not a whole lot of room. Just say so on here and maybe we could add that if anyone is interested. I figure the savings with a microwave and speed of use too, it would be very economical, even for reheating pizza!:goodvibes

    Since it's a long ways off yet, if this one doesn't take off (or there isn't anything else by then), I will be starting one for ASMo for our trip 2/8-2/19 so you aren't that long after us. I am sure we could find someone to fill in the gap :goodvibes I'll post when it gets closer!

    Okay I have some friends going next week, they are driving and could get a fridge there, BUT.. they are staying at POP and I am not sure how much of a hassle it would be for them to get the fridge to ASMovies. They are first time WDWr's and are clueless about the entire thing. I think I could probably convince them to take it down with them (and them use it of course) but I wonder how it could make its way to ASmovies for our swap? they will be checking out next friday. If we could find one more person that was going to be there the week after them, and could retrieve it for us it would be easier I think.
    as for the microwave, I would be happy to go in on that. I have an old coffee pot I can send down if need be ( I don't really need on for our room).
    I would love to add window door decoration kit to the fridge box if possible. BUT... If I am sending it with them, my time is limited on what I could put together. My daughters bday is tomorrow, and we are having her party here saturday. I have so much to do this week. http://www.wdwinfo.com/images/smilies/laundry.gif
    :laundy: yet I am sitting here reading DIS. :sad2:
    Oh also... my sil and her family will be arriving the day we leave (dec 16) but will be staying at Music. I am sure they would like to be in on the swap too, but if we want to just keep it at MOVIES only - thats fine too.

    We're currently booked at AS Music 9/7-9/17, but are going to try to switch to AS Movies if free dining is announced. We are currently paying for the DP, and will be buying the refillable mugs, but would love a fridge to keep sodas, yogurt for DD4's breakfast, and maybe a leftover dessert. Yummm!

    I don't know about adding a microwave and toaster. Would be interesting but I think the primary goal should be to get the fridge going first.

    LuckyLabonte: That sounds great actually. If they would be willing to leave it at POP then I'm sure myself or someone else could pick it up and bring it back to ASMo. The only problem is that we would need someone to fill in the mid-April dates since we can only leave it with the concierge for 2 weeks.

    Everyone looks to be comming along guys, lets drum up some more interest. I'll ask the mods to add us to the fridge-swap list and to change the title.

    I looked at our local walmart today, and they don't have any small fridges, so I am not sure where I could get one in time to send with them on monday. :confused:
    I can't ask them to stop somewhere and buy one... trust me. lol these people haven't even made ADR's or have any plans for what park each day etc. Its driving me insane! lol My dec trip is more planned out than theirs. :headache:
