    I am reading on websites that many of the mini fridges provided at disney hotels tend to be extra cold and it is possible to turn them up a little to easily freeze water bottles overnight. I need mine for insulin storage. I DO NOT want it to freeze! tips?

    Hi, Denise!  For years, I stored my insulin in the dormitory sized refrigerators at all of the Walt Disney World resorts, and I never had a problem with it freezing.  The refrigerators have a temperature adjustment that is reasonably clear to see and read, and you just want to keep it from the lowest temperature setting.

    I always kept it right around the middle, which kept the insulin cold, and it was also cold enough to keep milk, yogurt, and other things I wouldn't want to keep at a freezing temperature.

    If you want an added safety precaution, before you leave home, pick up a small, thermometer that you can clip onto the wire rack on the inside of the fridge.  Keep your insulin cold in either something like a Frio pack - or even just in an ice bucket - until you can verify with your thermometer the temperature of the refrigerator.  I think you'll be fine to trust it without the extra effort, but sometimes, it's better to be safe than sorry!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
