Due to a possible defect in the refrigerators in some of the Guest rooms at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, as well as Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, Resort hotels at these locations have removed or temporarily disconnected Guest room refrigerators until the issue can be resolved.
Guests staying at these Resort hotels will be notified of the refrigerator removal via a letter in their room. Currently the schedule for replacing the refrigerators at these Resorts is expected to last several months.
A limited number of refrigerators will be available for special needs cases. Guests can make a request in advance or by calling the front desk.
Any of my clients who who have a special need for a refrigerator please contact me and I will assist you in making special arrangements.
UPDATE: This is for all Walt Disney World Resort hotels except for Disney Vacation Club Villas and the Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. The refrigerator replacement program is expected to last 4 months.
UPDATE 2: We just received an update stating that if a fridge request is not able to be accommodated then, you will receive a $15 credit per night to enable cold item purchases.
