    Does pop century have a freezer for my frozen breast milk?

    Welcome to planDisney Shawn!

    How exciting - you are just a few weeks away from The World's Most Magical Celebration. There are so many new and exciting memories waiting, including one of our family's favorites, the nighttime spectacular Harmonious at EPCOT. Be sure to grab an evening snack and a great place around the World Showcase Lagoon to enjoy - it is amazing! 

    It has been a few years since my breastfeeding days, but I clearly remember trying to ensure my milk was properly frozen and stored for later use. While there is a small refrigerator in your room at Disney's Pop Century Resort, it does not have an actual freezer but rather a small freezer compartment. The compartment does not have a door, so while it does get colder than the rest of the refrigerator, in my experience it does not maintain a temperature that would work for your needs. It is also quite small and very few bags would fit. I am not sure how many days you will be enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World, but if it is for an extended period of time, you could check the availability of a resort that has a larger refrigerator and real freezer like a Villa at Disney's Beach Club Resort. If you only need to freeze the milk for a very short period of time, I have read a number of articles that indicate a tightly sealed Yeti and Yeti freezer packs have been used for up to 24 hours. 

    Just a few months ago, Cindy provided some great information about a popular breastfeeding service called Milk Stork. You may want to look through their website as they offer breast milk shipping services and some wonderful storage options for traveling home with stored breast milk. (where was this when my boys were young?). The good news is there are a number of shipping options that can be set up in advance and the resort can assist you with getting your package on its way. I also reached out to Guest Services as some guests have reported that the resort was willing to store properly labeled breast milk (kept in air-tight containers), in their freezer. Unfortunately, the Cast Member I spoke with could not confirm that the resort would be able to provide that service. She did explain you could speak to the resort upon your arrival, but I would not rely on this option.  

    Hopefully one of these options will help keep those precious packages safe. If I can help with any additional planning tips, please stop back and see me
