Should not be allowed in the CL lounge

I observed people pouring water from the large bottles in the CL lounge into their personal bottles (I assume to take into the park). This is just gross and should not be allowed. If you are going to do this, please don't put the glass bottle back on the table where other guests will unknowingly pour from the same bottle and get your germs.

I observed a lady with several kids take their individual bottles and put them in contact with the lounge water bottles so not to spill the water. I understand wanting to take water to the parks and there are a number of ways to do this. You could buy a container with a larger opening so as not to press the bottles together or just take the whole bottle and pour them into yours. I can't believe an adult would not know this is unsanitary.

If I receive a survey from Disney, I'll certainly identify this practice.

and shoes should be worn at all times. How disgusting to not wear shoes. It is not your personal living room/kitchen people! Teenagers doing this and their "parents" say nothing.

I hope the OP told the lounge attendant about this so they could replace the bottles.

Actually, no I did not tell the cm's. I don't think this is a new practice because I've read about it plenty. Believe me the CL cm's where I stayed were great and there are plenty of them around.

Please don't turn this into you should have told, etc., etc. I'm actually surprised I didn't but by posting it, hopefully others will see themselves and think about not doing it. It was a split decision not to. Please don't lecture. My son and I actually used the water after I witnessed this (not the same bottle as the woman put back) but who knows if I used one that someone else emptied into theirs?

That's my point. If someone is going to pour water into their own personal water bottle, at least use the wide mouth ones so you don't have to butt them up together in order not to spill the water.

The bottles in the CL have a regular size top and the lady pouring into hers was the same size. Yuck!

Personally, I would ask to take a whole bottle to pour into my families bottles. We all pay a lot to stay CL so I understand wanting to take water to the parks but this is an unsanitary practice and adults should know better.

Yeah. That's disgusting. Thanks for the heads up! On the last cruise we were on, there were big signs by the beverage dispensers asking people to please fill a glass with water and THEN fill their water bottles if they wanted water to take away. You were not allowed to fill your bottle directly from the dispenser. There is a good reason why they do this!

Quite honestly, if i see those big evian bottles in CL, I open a new one to pour into my glass. some people may think this is wasteful. I call it sanitary.

Unfortunately, It can be tough to police the CL lounge offerings ... The CM's are not always watching the guests. Some parents just dont seem to care. I've witnessed many kids pick through some of the various offerings and grab then put back muffins. bagels etc. Some parents will carefully watch their kids and instruct them to not put an item back once touched and other just let them loose without any supervision.
As far as the water goes ... We usually just ask for a bottle to take back to the room .... I have not personally witnessed the OP's observation but will keep my eyes open for it next time.

When staying Club Level at the Beach Club in December of 2012 we asked for and were given individual bottles of water. We also had no trouble with unruly children or adults when visiting Club Level during our trip.

That being said, it's a reflection of the guests using CL at the time, and not a reflection of the resort or the CM's if the guests choose to break the rules. A CM can stand there and correct the evil doers, but if they have it in their mind to do as they please, aside from some egregious offense, there is not much they can do to ensure appropriate behavior.

On the last cruise we took, there were the same signs posted everywhere. Yet, I still witnessed people filling their bottles by placing the opening of their bottles right against the dispenser. My daughter and I caught Noro on the same cruise. I wanted to throttle those people.

While I agree that common sense dictates that you should probably not wear a robe or pajamas in the lounge, the information sheet that I was given on my last CL stay said the following: "When visiting the lounge, may we suggest footwear and cover-ups for swim wear. We ask that an adult accompany guests below the age of 10. If you plan to partake in our wine, beer, or cordials, please be prepared to present appropriate photo identification."

As it doesn't specifically say that you can't wear a robe or pajamas, I am not sure that Disboarders can arbitrarily say what the rules are for dress code in the club lounge.

If, as an adult, wearing your jammies to the lounge is a really important part of your vacation experience, then that will be your decision.

I suspect they don't specifically state it because they assume it's common sense. Does the resort have a sign telling guests not to walk around the lobby in their jammies? Do restaurants have to tell potential diners that? No, because it's common sense. The CL lounge is a *public* space, and one is expected to dress (and act) accordingly.
