    Due to a possible defect in the fridges in some of the Guest rooms at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels all fridges have now been removed or temporarily disconnected until the issue can be resolved.

    This applies to all Resorts, except Disney Vacation Club rooms, the Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, as well as the Family Suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, and the cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground.

    There is currently no exact timeframe for when the fridges will be replaced, but it is expected to take at least 4 months. There will be a limited number of fridges available by special request at each Resort.

    If you need almond milk then I would call them ahead of time and say that you need a fridge for this.

    I like to keep Ava's excema cream in the fridge as it really helps cool it down when it's having an 'angry' day.....

    If you are able to do a grocery stop or have a rental car, you could always get a cheapie styrofoam cooler and fill it up with ice to keep your things cold. Or fill up the sink as a last resort.

    Of you get enough ice and a cooler that seals well, it should do well. You could always get shelf stable milk. It's more expensive but then you don't need to worry about spoilage.

    I guess my dream of a free upgrade to AoA family suite are out the window now as everyone will be moving to them.
    Bet people staying at ASSp are not going to be happy no good court and now no fridge! Glad I changed that reservation

    Well the word is that it will take about 4 months to replace them all, so I'm guessing that they won't replace them all at the same time. You might be ok for November :fingers:

    It seems very odd that they had a problem with all of them :unsure: I know that most of the deluxe and moderate resorts have always had a fridge and they just added them to the Value, so what on earth happened to the ones that have always been there?

    I have no idea, it's obviously a health and safety issue and they don't want to risk something happening :shrug:
