To the best of my knowledge, that is correct. We were able to have frozen and refrigerated items left by Garden Grocer when checking into VGF. When moving to BCV, Bell Services did not move refrigerated and frozen items. Saying that, we filled some 1 gallon zip loc bags we brought with us with ice and put the refrigerated items such as milk, cheese, butter, along with the zip loc bags in our luggage for extra insulation and everything was still cold when our bags made it to BCV. We did not try to transfer frozen items such as ice cream. I think they would have been more cream than ice by the time Disney transferred everything to BCV.

Back in December of 2021, Bell Services *would* move refrigerated/frozen items to your next resort, but they would not refrigerate or freeze those items.

We moved from BWV to BLT last December, and I was aware that they were no longer caring for refrigerated/frozen items. I gave them some frozen items to see what would happen, and they arrived at BLT soggy, as expected.

EDIT: for dropping off refrigerated/frozen items: I'm not sure. I scheduled a grocery delivery at BWV, and strange things happened. It feels like the resorts only want grocery items delivered to guests' rooms rather than held by Bell Services.

We had a couple items we asked to have refrigerated at AKV/Jambo in May. It was just too hot in the car for our freezer paks to make it. They took them no problem.

Why did I do that?

The sets are pretty cool. DS has a Yoda. A friend of ours has a MASSIVE collection that he has insured. I thought I had a collecting problem until he showed it to me.
We saw the Lego exhibit at the National Building Museum in DC a few years ago.
Awesome display of iconic structures like Falling Waters, Mount Vernon, Dubai tower, White House, etc. The description listed number of man hours it took, level of education of the team, number of blocks used. Impressive!

Since I have had no interest in utilizing Genie+ I have not paid much attention to the ins and outs. Must you purchase Genie+ to get into a virtual queue?

Nope. They are separate. There's a separate section just for VQs in MDE

But that's cold comfort. There very few rides with virtual queues, typically only one. To access lightning lanes AFAIK you need to go through Genie+.

You can also buy the individual Lightning Lane (ILLs) without Genie+

Currently thatís only 1 ride per park, it might return to 2 per park in August.

To add to this you can buy ILL for GotG and do VQ. You can also during extended hours try to do morning VQ, ILL and then evening VQ for 3 rides in 1 day.
