So I was at SSR at one of the quiet pools doing my laundry. I always set my alarm and stay at the pool. So my alarm goes off, I get up and walk in and this lady was taking out my clothes. She had to have been standing there waiting for it to stop. I kind of freaked out on her and said that it JUST stopped and what the heck? I also hate that people leave their clothes in the machines for hours so I never do that.Wow you’re more patient than I. The maximum I will wait is 15 minutes. There’s no excuse imo, the machines show how long they have remaining - they are sometimes out by 5 minutes or so. Most of the laundry rooms allow you to monitor the timer remotely and receive a notification (LaundryView.com/disneyworld). I’m always down before my cycle ends to get my stuff out for the next person. My view is that if someone can’t be respectful enough of fellow owners’ vacation time, then they’ve lost the right not to have their clothes handled by someone else. If they’re that precious about it, they should be at the machine when it finishes, or soon thereafter! I’ve never understood why it’s such a hot topic - the machines only take 30 minutes, so just come back after 20 - it’s just 10 minutes of time and will likely save several other members from coming back and checking.
As far as issues, I do laundry every trip and have not really had any major issues. I was always able to find a machine. I have seen one or 2 machines down, but there have always been others available. I don't remember any issues at the Poly when we stayed there 4 years ago.
