    All-Star now charges for refrigerators

    Free 'fridges are a thing of the past at the All-Star resorts. I heard it's true at all the "value" resorts. If you want a fridge in your room it is a $10 a day (+ tax) fee added to whatever you're paying per night. Blame it on the economy (or resort mug recyclers).

    Never had a 'free' fridge at the Value Resorts before. The only time we've had one is when we've requested it and paid $10 so that we could keep my Mom's medication in it.

    I don't think this is new news....

    I have had a free fridge every time I stayed there (around 8 times). The last time was about 2 or 3 years ago.

    I think you've just been lucky. We were just there in August and prior to that June of 2007. We've stayed there probably 8 times in the last 8 years!

    That's really an incredible streak. EVERY TIME except the past one. I think it's just a policy change.

    The only way you can get a free fridge is if you have medicine that has to be refrigerated. Like Melissa and them did. They never had any free fridges there.

    It is NOT a policy change. Refrigerators have never been free at VALUE RESORTS. They started a few years back including them with Moderate and Deluxe Resorts, but NOT Values. So yes.....you've had an 'incredible streak'. Consider yourself very lucky.

    I know that I am not, but I am not going to debate you. From looking at other threads you participate in and start it appears that you like to provoke people.

    I just do not want members coming here for help to receive bogus information.

    From All Ears:

    Are refrigerators available in the rooms?
    Refrigerators are available for a $10 fee per night; with tax it comes to $10.60. They are small dorm size refrigerators - large enough for milk, orange juice, and a few other items. The supply is limited, so request a refrigerator when making your reservation and then inquire when you check in. Some of the handicapped-equipped rooms have in-room refrigerators built into the dresser units. If you get a room with a king sized bed, you may be getting a refrigerator as well. Inquire at the front desk.
    Guest Note: We had a handicapped room because I need a shower with a bench, because of my arthritis. It also comes with a king size bed. We rented a small refrigerator, because the one that came with the room had no freezer section, which we needed. (Marie Kuhn)

    I was pretty sure thevalue resorts always charged for the fridges. At least, they always advertised the additional charge when I checked.

    As I said in the 3rd post: I haven't been to an All-Star in about 2 years. The last time I was there, and every subsequent trip before, our room had a refrigerator that we didn't ask for nor paid for. Either they changed their policy or I had an incredible lucky streak in getting free refrigerators. The room I just stayed in this past weekend at All-Star Music had a wall-unit / dresser thing which had an empty cabinet meant for a refrigerator. When I opened it I was surprised to see it was empty. I later learned of the $10 charge and because of my previous experiences I thought it was a new policy.

    Nope, there's never been free fridges at any of the value resorts. Part of the reason we always stay moderate/deluxe because we always bring things for breakfast or to snack on when we stay over.
    Upcoming Trips to WDW:

    Dec 6-10: Disney Wonder
    Dec 10-19: Port Orleans French Quarter
