    We are visiting in July and my daughter needs to carry an epipen for her son. We are staying at AOA family suite. She planned to bring an ice pack, but just learned there aren’t freezers in the refrigerator units. What options can keep it cool?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Janet. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your family! You're sure to make lots of magical memories together.

     You're going to love Disney's Art of Animation Resort. With larger-than-life characters and landscaped scenes throughout the resort, you'll feel like you've been transported to your favorite Disney and Pixar films! You're correct; the Family Suites at this Disney Resort hotel feature dorm-sized beverage coolers that do not have a freezer section. If your daughter needs to keep her son's EpiPen cool for your theme park adventures, I recommend packing resealable bags that you can fill with ice from the resort ice machines. I always pack an entire box of Ziploc gallon-sized bags for our Disney vacations. Before we leave the hotel in the morning, I fill two of those Ziploc bags with ice from the ice machine, seal them, and then toss them into our cooler to keep our drinks and snacks nice and cold throughout the day. If your daughter specifically needs the ice pack for medical reasons, it's possible that it can be kept in a freezer at the Front Desk. Just stop by to speak to a friendly Cast Member!

     Did you know there's a conveniently located First Aid center in each of the four theme parks? Trained Nurses are available to assist anyone in your family who needs medical attention AND they can also store medications that require refrigeration.

     I hope this was helpful, Janet. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
