    I heard that the Polynesian only has drink coolers and not actual refrigerators. Is that true? Do the coolers get as cold as a normal mini refrigerator? If not, are mini refrigerators available by request?

    Aloha, Sheree! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    Well, Sheree, it sounds like your planning is off to a fantastic start! Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is one of my absolute favorite Disney Resort hotels. With its laid-back, tropical vibes, incredible dining options, one of the best pools in Walt Disney World Resort and location right on the monorail loop, it's the perfect home away from home right in the middle of the magic. Now, let's chat about your pixie-dusted amenities, shall we?!

    You are correct that each room at the Polynesian Village Resort has what they refer to as a "beverage cooler." Basically, it looks very similar to a mini fridge but without a little freezer compartment at the top. The beverage coolers cool to 41 degrees Fahrenheit, and in my experience, it's the same cooling capacity as a mini fridge. In fact, we always keep milk in our beverage cooler without any issues.

    If you do feel like your room's beverage cooler doesn't get as cold as you need, I do recommend contacting the front desk of the Resort to see if there are any additional options for you. The Cast Members at the Polynesian are so incredible and will be more than happy to help!

    I hope this helps, Sheree, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable fall vacation! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
