Club Level Question

We are thinking of staying club level at either WL, YC,BI or AK.
Would love to hear thoughts on what your favorites are.

Thanks in advance.

My favorites are as follows:

1) WL - Love the seating/view of the lobby
2) YC - Small but easy to access lounge and decent foodd offerings
3) BW - Nice size and offerings but the lounge is relativily far from the elevator
4) AKL - very nice and open lounge but I'm not a fan of some of the food offerings

Out of your choices we have only stayed WL CL, which is amazing. The food offerings are great, the CMs are top notch, and the lounge is nice as the seating overlooks the lobby. With that said, I have heard nothing but great things about AKL CL and BWI CL, both of which are on our list of club levels to try. Good luck.

Out of those you listed we have only stayed CL at the YC and BC, so I can't comment on the other two.

YC -- great location for the resort, great pool, lounge is just so-so to me (no view, just a large room, really).

AKL -- animals, fun pool, much nicer lounge with better food options IMO. Also they have the nice espresso machine (we miss that when we stay at other CLs). And you can book the Sunrise Safari. Farther out from the parks, though. The lounge is large and overlooks the lobby -- great ambiance.

WL CL is magical!

We had delicious food, amazing service and the WL is just a beautiful resort.

We are trying YC CL in April, so I am eager to compare the two. It was very hard not to book WL CL again.
