The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter
We were last there in 2014 and 2015, so maybe it’s not the case anymore. If you pull those fridges out, there is a pot on the back. Each time we have gone, it was set to the warmest setting.Those small freezers in the dorm fridges don't freeze 2-3 water bottles well at all. Let alone any freezer packs. Been there done that and didn't bother with the tee shirt.
Because most of the refrigerators DO NOT have freezer compartments.Why not just freeze your water bottles in the room and use them? That’s what we did years ago when we were there in the summer. We carried them in a normal backpack and I don’t recall there being any problem with leaking. If that is a concern, you could put them inside a plastic bag first.
We have this but purchased it at Costco a few years ago for like $25. It’s been awesome. It fits way more than it appears, has a ton of pockets for odds and ends and you can stack bags, backpacks, purchases, whatever on the top and strap it down. It’s super easy to pull and the wheels are smooth and rugged. It’s been to Wyndham Bonnet Creek pools dozens of times, Disney resort pools, various amusement parks, beaches, zoos, block parties, tons of sporting events..... It’s small but mighty!I've actually got one of these. Ice doesn't stay frozen for too long, as the coolers aren't as well insulted as the hard shell ones. If you are going to bring it into the park, get a rolling one.
BTW, some of the fridges in the DVC studios have little freezer compartments.
See my post #14 of this thread. I got a Coleman cooler with OUT hard insert in the cooler that will function similarly by containing the ice melt drippage. Never got a answer about rigid inserts, but between WDW Customer Service and Mom's Panel, no one wanted to speak for Security. They didn't THINK it would be an issue, but... When I found the other cooler, that satisfied my requirements so I was happy. Easier to pack and take on an airplane as well as I don't have to use it as a carry on nor check it separately.I'm interested in an answer to the op's original question. We too have a small wheeled soft sided cooler tote that has a hard plastic liner. We want to bring some food and drink to avoid paying inflated prices. Wondering if this cooler is considered "soft sided" to pass the rules.
