Want to know what you're getting yourself in for? Read the 'rules' below:
Are my dates available?
Check the list above and if your dates are available, send me (JeMarie6) a PM with your desired dates. If you can't PM yet because you haven't hit your 10 posts, post to the list and send me an email at my home email JeMarie6@mchsi.com. Assuming your dates are available and you are staying at the POP, Iíll pencil you in and then PM you with a request for your information. Youíll need to provide me with your name/contact information/reservation number and your travel/swap dates. If youíre not sure of your dates, please wait until you are to sign up for this fridge swap! Once I have your information, I'll update you to confirmed .
Is there a cost?
Due to new Disboard rules as of 04/19/09, there is no longer a cost to join the swap. However, signing up for the swap is a commitment and we need everyone to do their part to keep this Swap going. (If you need to check with your spouse/fellow travelers, as a courtesy I recommend you do it before you post/PM me!) (Thank you to our original swappers who contributed to the fridge!!), Hopefully all goes well with the fridge swap, and the fridge is successfuly passed on to the next person. Since we can't collect funds if the fridge gets lost, they'll be no fridge to swap if we can't keep track of it.
What are my responsibilities?
After you've been added to the list and been confirmed, check with the swapper before you and after you to make arrangements for the SWAP. Although Iím currently leading this SWAP, each of you is ultimately responsible for the fridge and making sure it gets to the next party. To that end make sure you are communicating with both the parties before and after you so we donít lose the fridge! I recommend making initial contact fairly soon and then reconfirming arrangements before your previous party is scheduled to leave for Disney. If a face-to-face SWAP isnít being arranged, insist on a claim ticket when you leave the fridge at luggage services. (You can get a luggage cart to transport it or often the CM may help transport it for you. You will likely have to accompany the CM to luggage services to get the claim ticket if you are leaving it at luggage services for the next swapper. Please plan accordingly as it can take some time to get the luggage cart and drop off the fridge during busy check out times. Don't forget to tip the CM if he takes the time to transport it for you!) Contact the swapper after you and advise them of the claim ticket number. Make sure the box is labeled with the information on the name/reservation number/arrival date of the next swapper. When picking up the fridge, it may help to know that the box is (or at least was at one time) labeled on all 4 sides with the Hop on Pop Fridge Swap and red duct tape).
Keep watching here for updates and PM me if there are any questions or issues with plans changing, etc. Iíll do my best to keep everyone informed and help out in anyway possible. Make sure the fridge is clean and dry before putting it into storage for the next swapper. It can take a little time to defrost if the ice has built up in the freezer so plan accordingly. Please do not leave food in the fridge even if you expect it to be picked up right away. Take good care of the box as well it will make things a lot easier in the long run to keep the box intact and in good condition. Also please do not sign up for multiple swaps unless you have multiple rooms. One more thing, if you can, check in after you get home and let us know how things went!
