    Just wanted the option as I have a hard time getting to sleep and having a movie on sometimes helps. I tested it with my access point on my Verizon phone w/unlimited data and it works great so if the bandwidth at FQ isn't good then I can do that.
    Thank you for all your help on this board. You are appreciated.

    Believe me watching the Disney channels that are on the TV will be enough to send you to sleep :rotfl2:

    What building are you in? I've heard some have been replaced- wondering if they just haven't made it to yours yet

    Are coffee and hot chocolate included in the RFID mug program??

    From what I have read from people there now water, coffee and hot chocolate are not part of the RFID system. Meaning you can use your mug for these beverages, but they are not controlled by the RFID system.

    Other than interest in people's trips, there really is very little point in asking about fridges in individual rooms as currently only about 50% of rooms have working fridges, and they are moving them around between different guest rooms as required for medical situations, other requests, etc.

    Nope, coffee (which is now Joffrey's incidentally), hot chocolate, iced tea and water/ice are not controlled by the RFID refill chips, only the soda fountain dispenser drinks. The new system goes live this morning, so it'll be interesting to get any feedback later today.

    So excited - I just did our online check in. I cannot wait!!! I do have to call the resort to ensure we do have a fridge. We have medicine that needs to be kept cold.
