I know they charge to use the fridges in the room, but if you have medication that must be refrigerated they are free. My question is, are the fridges you get for free, the same size as the room fridge or are they the tiny shoe box size ones? I have a med that needs to refrigerated, but wondered what else I might be able to fit into the fridge.
They are a dorm sized fridge.
Here is the info from the website:

Just got back. IMHO, not so much a fan. But I admit my opinion could be tainted because this visit came on the heels of a wonderful week at Wilderness Lodge. Here goes: Checked in at 9 a.m. before visiting US and IOA, gave my cell number to be notified when room was ready. Requested daily newspaper and room most convenient for park visits. No phone call after 9 hours, so went back to front desk at 6 p.m. (they confirmed they had the correct cell number) and was given 7th floor, Tower 2 room at the very end of the far right hall. Newspaper never delivered. Housekeeping did not make beds -- just left fresh towels. Water taxis -- I was just unlucky missing a departing one every time so just walked.
Pros: Very helpful bellman and valet.
I will be there in three more days!!!! I just had to log on to see my ticker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, that sounds pretty amazing. Will definately try to be at the pool at that time. Can you tell me more about the complimentary sunscreen? We will only have carry on luggage so our "liquid" items are limited. I did plan on bringing some sunscreen and buying more if I needed too. But if they have complimentary sunscreen maybe I won't have to buy any. Also for the rooms is it the standard shampoo, conditioner and soap, or are there other items?
The free sunscreen is where the pool towels are given out. There is an employee working there. We never took any of the complimentary sunscreen but it was nice to know it was there if we ever needed to reapply and left our bottle in the room. I think if the pool isn't open there won't be sunscreen available so I would bring a bottle on your trip (for when you head over to the parks before the pool opens). Have a great time. This is a very well run Hotel. May I suggest considering an upgrade to club level if you didn't book club level? You get free breakfast with lots of healthy choices each morning. The club lounge is a very nice perk during your stay. Have fun.
Thank you for your reply and for the additional information. We were planning on bringing our own sunscreen but its nice to know if we run out we have another option besides buying more. Not sure if the club level would be worth it for us on this trip, but thanks for the suggestion. I think I will check out the cost difference. Very excited to try out this Hotel
I forgot to mention the free sunscreen was offered in little plastic cup fulls. Kind of like the plastic cups you use to put ketchup in at burger king or at a cafeteria. But the employee prefills the cups and they are lined up on the counter for you to take or ask for. If it is not there I'll bet your can just ask the towel attendant for some. You are going to have a great time. We very much enjoyed the pool area with all the activities. One thing that stood out for us was swimming it the pool in the evening while watching some animated movie on a big screen. That's a memory with my 7 year old son that will last a lifetime. The Hotel staff does a great job making you feel welcome. And, the employees all seemed to like their jobs. Club level is not needed and the money you'll save from not upgrading will pay for many meals of your choice.
Thank you for the additional information. Definately sounds like you had a great stay and I hope we experience the same fun. We arrive on Friday so won't have to wait much longer!
We had the same problem with the watertaxis.
Did you ever call Housekeeping to ask why they weren't doing their full job?
Newspapers...people are people, and whenever I'm missing a paper I think I should have gotten, I bet that someone else took it.
Convenient to park visits....one of the towers is good if you're planning on walking. one of them is good if you're always going to get the watertaxi. I can't remember if the other is useful for either or both. Just the way it's built, I suppose.
And YES, it's hard to truly appreciate one hotel when youv'e just had a blast at another. While we really enjoyed RPR, we felt the rooms were approximately the size of a postage stamp. This was mainly because we had just been in 2 bedrooms and 1 bedrooms at OKW. Those rooms are huge, and then the regular hotel room was just itsy to our eyes. That's why we've switched over to Portofino for the next two stays and probably most stays in the future. We like ending our Orlando time at Universal (b/c going back to puny Fast Pass is too difficult after you've had Express Pass in the same trip) so we have to get the bigger rooms so they don't feel like a 4 man tent, LOL.
I bit the bullet and will be staying here 10/28. Decided to do it for FOTL and early entry. Short walk home after HHN as well. Used AAA for a bit of a discount. Don't think I will be disappointed. Will probably just end up sleeping here and not enjoying anything else. I can just check in early Sunday morning and get my key card and then have FOTL access all day, correct? Room won't necessarily be ready, but still can enjoy the bennies.
Express pass isn't good for HHN though, just in case you didn't know.
Stupid question time - we'll be checking out on a Sunday but will do the whole day in the park. We're driving so I'm trying to figure out if it would be easier to haul the bags back to the car in the morning or can we just leave them at the front desk and get them on our way out? The kicker is that morning is our early admission to HP morning, so I hate to spend the time to go out to the car and back (this is our first time, so I don't know how far out the parking lot is from the lobby).
Any advice would be appreciated!
You'll use your room key to get a seperate FOTL/Express pass that has your picture on it from the kiosks located in the concierge area near the check-in desk.
RPR has a luggage area where the bellhops will store your luggage when you check out.
You're welcome and enjoy your trip!
