We love BC CL.

We were there for two weeks the end of July/beginning of August. Food was always replenished quickly and the cms were super helpful and friendly.

This is great to hear! I have been reading through the BC thread, and enjoying all the great pictures. The food in the lounge looks really good!

Hi all -

DH and I will be checking into AKL CL next Sunday, at around 7:30am. Is it better to do online check in, or should we just wait until we get there? Our goal is to make it to Epcot for rope drop...

Thanks for all the great concierge info on this thread and the last one!

We are staying in a standard concierge room @ the BWI for the first time in December (we've been to BWI before and loved it, but have never done concierge), and we're really looking forward to it!

I wonder what sort of evening hot appetizers they will offer since Kouzzina will be closed while we are there, but we will have to make sure not to fill up too much since we are on the dining plan and have TS dinners planned for each night around 7:30 or 8ish. Looking forward to breakfast every morning though

One question though - we haven't really made any requests yet to the IPO (I just booked my ADR's on my own online). Can we make a room request through them (like a Boardwalk view for example)?

We will be having our 2nd Club Level stay at the Boardwalk Inn this December and it will be during the time when Kouzzina is closed, so maybe we will see each other in the lounge. Anyway this is a guess but I think they will bring in food from the Flying Fish Cafe, ESPN Club or Big River Grille and Brewing Works since those are their other table service restaurants. I was also wondering the same thing when I heard the news and I guess we will need to wait until we see it for ourselves.

As for making a room request I would call the Disney Reservations Center and make them because I think they are better for doing room requests, although I guess you can call or e-mail the Boardwalk IPO and see what they can do about that.

When I stayed there I skipped the online check in. I got to the resort around 10 in the morning. There was a concierge desk before the entrance to the resort and when I gave the CM there my name, she immediately took care of me. I got a short tour of the lobby area and then was taken up to the lounge where I was offered a snack or drink and then we completed check-in.

I would skip online check in and plan to skip it in Nov/Dec when I stay at the Poly CL.

During all of our Club Level stays since WDW has started online check-in we have never used it because after we arrived there was always a Cast Member waiting to meet us and took us up to check-in on our floor, so we don't feel it's worth it when staying Club Level.

When you do online checkin, you have to go to the online checkin line, even if you're staying CL. That means you'll be missing out on the bit of pampering you'll get with the CL checkin (escort to CL area, checkin in the CL area; hey, I'll take what I can get LOL). No way will I ever do online checkin when staying CL. When staying non-CL I'll do it every time.

I think you will love BC CL!

The evening appetizers are amazing! The staff is super nice. Good selection on breakfast items.

We can't wait to get back!

I've always made my requests through the IPO and (touch wood!) have had great success - at the GF RPC I asked for a room near the lounge and got a room on the 4th floor just off the lounge, same for the YC (i.e. near the lounge) and BWI I ask for a boardwalk view room and have had brilliant rooms - the latest was a standard club level king room directly opposite the lounge (4th floor) with a gorgeous view



Just outside my door was a little sitting area and the lounge directly behind it:
