According to a release on the Disney Travel Agent site, if you request a fridge, but one is unavailable when you arrive, you will receive a $15 per night credit. Those needing the fridge for medical reasons will have priority (as they should). While it would be inconvenient to not have one, I think their compensation is very generous. Disney has the best customer service.

I'm looking forward to trying the corned beef hash. Not a lot of places still have that.

Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.

We have discovered a possible issue with one of the refrigerator models
that is widely used in our Guest rooms at certain Walt Disney World
Resort hotels.

Because of the possible issue, we will disable use of the impacted
refrigerators by unplugging the refrigerators, binding the electrical
cord, tagging the cord with a do not use label and placing a Guest
letter on the refrigerator.

We are working to procure replacement refrigerators quickly, but this
could take several months to accomplish. We appreciate that many guests
use these refrigerators regularly and we do have a limited number of
replacements on hand. Should you have a particular need for a
refrigerator for your stay, please contact us at 407-934-7693 to have
the request noted on your reservation.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

If you have questions or need further assistance, feel free to contact
us.

Sincerely,

Alea Wilkins
WDW Online Communications
I'm sure they have a ton of people emailing them about the refrigerator situation. It doesn't surprise me that they have a generalized email going out. I don't think we'll need a refrigerator when we go in October but it'll be nice to have one just in case.

That's very impressive. At least they're acknowledging the inconvenience and compensating for it. They're probably the only company that would do that.

online check in...10 days...help needed

I can do my online check in, in 10 days and I need your help please.....I have never been to POP before and I have read that you can make requests which I know are not guaranteed on your reservation.....I am not overly picky on where I stay except for not wanting to be on the very back end of a building away from everything ....walking is not an issue unless I am carrying a weeks load of laundry with me(hahaha).....and noise is not an issue.....my sister suggested get as close to Hippy Dippy pool but on the map that is preferred.....any tips or room/building suggestions

Thanks

I haven't done online check in since they made modifications to it...so this may not be of help to you. It sounds like you should request close to the food court! The reason I would say this is because this puts you close to Classic Hall which will also put you close to transportation. If you request close to transportation, they could put you out in the 80's/ 90's because apparently there's a short cut to transportation from there but it's a hike to Classic Hall IMO but for someone like me the shortcut to transportation isn't really viable. That's my suggestion. Hope you enjoy POP!!
