did I just mess up?

I had a woods view bunk bed room at the wilderness lodge but I upgraded to club level - now the bunk bed is a preference rather than a guarantee.

I have 2 kids that really want / need a bunk bed (separate sleeping arrangements)- should I just forgo the club level and go back to the bunk bed category or do you think that my request would be granted because it is club level.

I have looked online and the woods view bunk bed rooms are sold out for my current dates.

WL CL is amazing!!!

No way that you made a mistake. Just contact IPO and make a request for the bunk beds. They will make every effort to get you your requests. (Though they won't guarantee it) We had no issue in getting the bunk beds on CL and our girls LOVED them!

IMHO, if I was able to book CL at WL I would be all over it! And if I didn't get the bunkbed request met, my response would be "suck it up buttercups! We're staying CL at WL!"

I'm in the same boat, the almost 16-yr old will NOT share a bed with his little brother. I booked WL CL & requested bunks (IPO told me they don't have anything to do with room assignments, to contact the reservations line & have it noted on my ressie, which I did). I really wanted the Deluxe Room at WL CL but the cost was double, so that's a no go.

I also told them what dansdad said - if we don't get it, decide who is sleeping on the floor!

This is interesting. I have been in contact with WL IPO via email and when I asked they said to give them my request. Am I messing up leaving it in their hands? Should I contact someone else or could something have changed and IPO does take them now?

I am going with the idea that staying CL trumps room requests but if I can put one in and have a chance it's honored I want to do what I can to give the best chance it happens

Candace - did you speak directly with IPO about the bunk bed request? Hmmm...now I'm wondering...I might email or call IPO again & see what they tell me this time. I think my email went to Poly IPO - seriously I think that's how it was signed, but I didn't pay much attention. But then again, when we stayed CL at BC it was the IPO at YC that answered our calls. So maybe that's the norm to have resorts share IPO CMs. Maybe I got a new one, or they misunderstood my question.

Maybe you can call the CMs who take care of concierge guests (I can't remember their title) and make the request. ETA: IPO ... that's what I was thinking of!

It depends just how important getting bunk beds is to you and if you would regret changing if you ended up not getting bunk beds in a CL room. WL CL is amazing and I, personally, would choose that over a bedding preference. But with that said, if bunk beds are a necessity for your kids to have separate beds, I would try to switch back. We had a bunk bed room when our DSs were younger and they loved them. The bunk beds are great for kids, but CL is also great. I would choose by which is the most important. Good luck.
