    Is there a way to get an additional mini refrigerator in a room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge?

    Hi there, Michele!  Welcome to planDisney.

    How exciting that you'll be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge!  This beautiful resort feels like it is a million miles away from Central Florida.  I highly recommend the breakfast buffet at Boma - Flavors of Africa -- so many delicious options!  If you're unable to secure a reservation in advance of your visit, try joining the walk-up waitlist via the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Michele, to be honest, I had never heard of a Guest having a second mini-refrigerator for their room, so I reached out to Guest Services at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge on your behalf.  I was told that generally, only 1 refrigerator per room is allowed.  You are welcome to make your request upon arrival, which would need to be approved by the Housekeeping manager.  Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis depending upon the circumstances and subject to availability.

    I know the in-room refrigerators are rather small, so I am mindful of the number of perishable items I plan to store and chill just a few beverages at a time.  In the past, I have brought a small collapsible cooler for extra items.  If having a full-size refrigerator would make your stay better, you might consider upgrading to a 1-bedroom or larger Deluxe Villa, which would include a kitchen fully stocked with dishes, cookware, and utensils.  Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness also feature full-size refrigerators.  Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort include a kitchenette with a slightly larger, counter-height mini refrigerator.  The refrigerators in the Family Suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort even have a separate freezer.

    Michele, I am wishing you a wonderful vacation!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
