    I see that the resort rooms have refrigerators, but what if we have something we would like to heat up? Do they have any type of microwave that guest are allowed to use?

    Hi Cherokee,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us!

    Many Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have microwaves that guests can request and these are distributed based on availability. When we have not had a microwave in our room, we have gone to the food court at our resort and used the microwave there to heat our food. Depending on how far your room is from the main food court area, this option may not seem practical but it has worked for us in the past.

    To request a microwave, I suggest that you contact guest services to check availability for your specific resort. Each Resort Hotel has a contact number listed on the resort overview page. The number listed for Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, for example, is 407-939-7000.  

    We always take instant oatmeal for breakfast in case we do not eat in a restaurant. I just use the coffee maker to heat hot water for the instant oatmeal. We only trek to the food court to reheat leftovers. 

    Cherokee, I hope you have researched Dining Reservations and Fast Pass+ Selections. My girls love to do Character Meals and always help us prioritize the rides and attractions we wish to enjoy!

    I am sending pixie dust your way hoping your trip is full of unexpected magic!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
