Silly fridge question


#1

We are staying at a mod. for the first time. Does anyone know if the fridge in the mod is the same size as the ones at SSR in the studio?


#2

I don’t have any facts, but in my mind the ones at DVC’s are bigger.


#3

Here is picture of fridge at mods:


#4

Thank you!! That is the same as the one we had at SSR!!! Just wondering if milk container would fit!!! Looks like it will!!


#5

They’re all exactly the same size no matter which hotel, no matter which price level.
Only the DVC villas have full sized refrigerators.

Actually a DVC Studio Villa has a regular, small fridge.


#7

True, you don’t get a full sized fridge unless you get a full sized kitchen and they only come with the one and two bedroom DVC suites.


#8

Make sure you bring a screw driver or tweezers to turn the temp up. They take the knobs off and they leave it cool not cold. I learned this to keep my beer cold XXXX I mean milk cold!


#9

Amen to that…my “milk” needs to be COLD:laugh: As for the question, the fridges at POFQ seem to be the same size as the ones I had at both OKW and SSR (both studios).


#10

Great tip!!! I, too, love my MILK super cold! :laugh:


#11

Everyone pretty much covered that one but yup…they are the same!


#12

I’ve never gotten a refrigerator that was missing the temp knob. However, they are almost universally touchy when setting the temp so it’s cooler. I too have had liquids and cold cuts freeze.


#13

We haven’t either. In fact, we adjust the temperature slowly until we get it just right–very cold but not freezing.


#14

Maybe it’s just me, but I think they look like different sizes from these pictures. Maybe things have changed since these were taken???

Also the picture from POR, the fridge doesn’t appear to have a freezer. I know we had a tiny freezer (space for about 4 water bottles) at BWV.


#15

Yeah, they do look different. We always had plenty of space though at both mods and DVC.

Every fridge I’ve had, regardless of resort has been exactly the same size.
From the Pop and All Stars to Yacht, Poly, and AKL, as well as all the mods, have all been exactly the same size. And they’ve all had very tiny freezer trays that are probably good for two mini ice cube trays and have no interior door.

AHRG! :pirate: A little cold milk never hurt anyone.:wink:

Did you ever stay at a DVC? I wonder if that’s where the confusion is? Maybe the resorts have one type of fridge and DVC have a different type.

I stayed at OKW once, but it was a one bedroom suite, so it had a full kitchen with full sized appliances.
The DVC studios have kitchenettes which only have a small sink, a microwave oven, and a half tall (counter tall) fridge.
This is probably twice the size of a guest room mini fridge.

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been saying. The fridge at a DVC studio is bigger than the ones at a mod. I’ve never stayed at SSR, but I would think all the DVC’s are the same too.
