First of all, thank you to anyone that can offer some insight. :thumbsup2
Now, on to the main question. DH and I are heading to WDW for our 1st anniversary, and are currently planning on staying at the WL on the Concierge Level. We have stayed CL before, all at the GF.
Can anyone tell me about the food offerings at the WL CL? What kind of evening appetizers and desserts are available? Pictures would be GREAT!!!
Thanks to anyone who can help me!!

WL concierge evening appetizer food is somewhat 'heartier' than the GF.
when we were there, the evening offerings always seemed to be some sort of hearty stew - we're vegetarians, so we never tried it, but everyone else was raving about it....
it definitely seemed as if you could have more of a 'meal' at the WL than you could at the GF...
i can't remember what else they offered as an evening appetizer, but people were definitely 'chowing down'....
and strangely i can't remember the deserts - i assume the typical cookies, etc, but i can't remember - we've stayed in so many of the concierges, the deserts all seem to blend together....
but don't get the wrong idea - we LOVE the WL and WL concierge (either way - we've enjoyed both concierge and non-concierge at the WL - both have excellent service)....

by the way, if you want to see the view from our concierge room (the VP suite), there's a picture on my website - in the first slide show on the top right of the page...

Here's part of my review of the WL Old Faithful Club from our stay last Xmas that might help you :goodvibes : We had stayed previously at AKL, Poly and GF concierge rooms but never at the WL or BWI - so we split this stay and were at WL and then moved over to BWI Innkeepers Club. Here's just my opinion from last December, copied from my 3 part review comparing both(!) Hope it helps you!:
I don't know why I was scared of the WL concierge (or remember what I read that was negative), but I LOVED the WL Old Faithful Club, and it is now my favorite. :yay: I loved the BWI Boardwalk view room, but thought the BWI concierge lounge and offerings were not as nice as the WL. All the CMs were very pleasant in both, and the lounges were really pretty.
WL Old Faithful Club Hours:
Club Desk 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Coffee 6:30 AM - 7:00 AM
Continental Breakfast 7:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Refreshments 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Wine and Cheese Selections 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Cordials and Desserts 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
What was offered when we were there (I'm sure I've forgotten some items, but it will give you an idea):
*Breakfasts offered different cereals, sliced fruits, danish, 2 kinds of muffins, croissants, bagels, etc. (toaster was there for toasting) whole fruit, yogurt, OJ/cranberry/apple juice, teas, milk, chocolate milk, coffee machines for cappucinos, lattes, mocha, etc. always available when lounge was open- Fruit was always out (bananas, apples, oranges etc)
*Refreshments included mixed nuts, goldfish crackers, gummy bears, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, etc. Ice tea/Lemonade, etc.
(Large bottle waters were always out by ice bucket for all services)
*Wine and cheese - good crackers, tray of cheese cubes (hot pepper/swiss/cheddar/wedge of blue cheese or similiar) veggie plate with dip, wonderful thick sliced bread (I think it was a sourdough, I usually had to have two slices with butter as I love homemade bread!) sometimes with a spread in a bowl next to the basket (one day tomato basil, the next babah ganoush), peanut butter and jelly uncrustables, and on the other side in two le Creuset casseroles/dutch ovens (warning - heavy lids! Kids shouldn't try to lift them) one day of our stay was Minestone (really exceptionally YUMMY!) and the other pan had pork and cabbage, the next day one pan had clam chowder, other pan had beef and bisquits, and the next day one pan had chicken broth with veggies, the other pan had paella. Wines were Merlot (14 Hands), White Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, sorry I don't remember all the beers but Bass Ale and Miller Lite were there in the cooler with Coke and Diet Coke, Sprite, juice boxes and other drinks
*Cordials and desserts - Kahlua, Grand Marnier, etc. Small dessert bites like brownies, magic bars, cookies
My picture shows the cooler before they stocked it up :)
Ice Tea/ lemonade/juice, bottled water - ice bucket, glasses, to go cups with lids
Coffee, hot tea service
Seating looking out toward stream and pool (and geyser!)
Plenty of seating (kids area with TV at end of this) NOT as narrow as it looks in my picture
Opposite side has couch to watch plasma TV
Plasma TV and more seating

Thank you all so much. We have stayed at the CL of BWI before as well - from the Garden suite, it was a pain in the tuckous to get to the Innkeepers Lounge.
The pictures look great - the food does seem more rustic than the GF. I am a little concerned about that. Expecially with dessert - I am a strange one and don't care for cookies or brownies. :confused3 I don't know what to do...
Lives4Disney - you are so right. It is hard to believe we have been married for almost a year! It seems like just yesterday I was having to walk down the steps at the GF because I forgot my room key and couldn't get down the elevator....
