If you are counting on that in-room fridge on your next stay at a Disney resort, be prepared to be disappointed.
It's being reported by Stitch Kingdom that Disney has announced plans to remove all refrigerators from all resort rooms at The Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and Aulani Resort. The reason for the removals appears to be a possible manufacturer's defect.
The only resort rooms that will not be affected by this are DVC rooms, cabins at Fort Wilderness, and family suites at The Art of Animation and All-Star Music resorts.
If you are in need of a refrigerator due to medical issues, Disney will have a limited number of refrigerators available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The replacement of the in-room refrigerators is expected to take up to four months.
Guests currently in Walt Disney World are reporting back to us with more information on this process. WDWFG Forum Member MrHub tells us "They are definitely not pulling all fridges, just one model." Disney was asking to check the fridges in occupied guest rooms to be sure all was good. The Manager MrHub spoke with said that "they are just pulling the one model until they get replacements." Mr Hub is staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
