    Yes they do and you can also walk to riverside and use their gift shop as well . If I recall autograph books are along the back wall closer to the fridge area of gift shop

    30 days until POFQ!!! :dance3:

    It hasn't really sunken in yet, since this is my second trip this year. Plus, I won't be traveling with DH and kids, since DH gave me this trip with my BFF for Mother's Day! Doesn't seem real!! But can't wait!

    I'm wondering the same thing. The Poly is our favorite resort, and we always stay there or BC. Most of our stays are at the Poly though. We want to add an extra trip in Jan. (we will be at the Poly in Oct), and the price difference is substantial. We tried CSR last year, and didn't care for it, but mostly because we had a terrible room location. I'm hoping since POFQ is smaller that wont be a problem.

    I called the number today on the refrigerator letter I received last week and the automated message for POFQ is to press 2 and a recorded message came on and said that we WILL have a refrigerator at this resort. (our stay is Sept 14-20). There were still resorts listed including Riverside to press 1 to speak to someone but it sounded like POFQ has refrigerators in all rooms now????Anyone else try this today?:confused3

    I'm here right now. This is our first visit to the FQ. So far I really like it. The lobby is beautiful, the grounds are lovely and the people friendly. We had lunch at Sassagoula Floatworks and was pleasantly surprised. I had the roast beef po boy with homemade chips. Really good.
    Our room isn't ready yet we got here around noonish - was told it wouldn't take long but its 2:20 right now and no luck.

    I guess that may mean that the next delivery of fridges (due about now) is all going to FQ again? I can't say for sure, but I would trust a recorded message on an official Disney phone line far more than I would trust a random cast member's promises at the call center.

    Maybe FQ is getting priority on the replacement fridges because we are not getting Magic Bands. :rotfl2:

    Here is the number from the letter regarding refrigerators: (407) 827-7760. Several posts back I made a comment about calling and selecting both options on 2 different calls. I posted that the CM told me the refrigerators were ALL replaced at POFQ and I should have a working refrigerator per the CM on the phone. She said if I did not then call the front desk and one will be put in my room because the refrigerators are there but may not have been replaced yet. Andre quoted me and responded (you can see several posts back). If you press the option that your resort is not listed on the recording then it has a recording that tells you that you will have a refrigerator. But, I called back and chose the other option and got a live CM who gave me the previous information regarding POFQ. I am arriving in 4 days and she said that a refrigerator will be no problem. I also asked about the $15/day credit and she said if a refrigerator is not available then the resort manager could issue the credit, but the likelihood of not refrigerator was slim-because the seriousness at POFQ was not as bad because there were less rooms to replace since there are much fewer rooms at POFQ than at Riverside.

    I really so hope you're in luck. Certainly as of mid/late August that was not the case (as the visitor posts here have shown) - but things can sometimes change quickly. I'll check in again with my contacts over there and see what the latest news is looking like early next week.

    We're at the FQ right now. When we checked in on 8/22 there was a disconnected frig in our room so I called and requested one and it was delivered to us within 10 minutes. Looks brand new so maybe the shipment has arrived : )

    Well, we were waiting it out to see how well my dad would be or if he'd end up in a rehab facility but he took a turn for the worst last weekend and passed away last Sunday. Lots of mixed emotions. Of course, he was my father and I loved him but he was a very controlling man and in a way, it feels like my mom, my dad and I are all in a better place now. My mom and I are still going on the trip and we actually extended it back to 6 days which is what I wanted in the first place. We're looking forward to it.

    Of course, we had to move resorts so we're staying at the CBR now. It's the third time I've tried staying at FQ and had to move when I changed plans lol.
