I just got a message with my itenerary yesterday and my reservations are for 5:30 that Sunday night. 5:30! That's not going to work, that's WAY, WAY to early to try to wait for the 9:00 Illuminations show. I don't know WHAT to do now!
First I just wanted to say that right now the Contemporary Atrium Club Cast Members are not the ones making your ADR's, it's actually the Contemporary IPO Cast Members and they have nothing to do with the Atrium Club Cast Members because they are different. Now as for why they got you a 5:30 PM ADR maybe since the booking window for you date opened that's all they were able to get, because they use the same ADR system as everyone else and don't have access to make them earlier and etc. So have you checked the WDW site yourself to see if you can get a better time?

Are they still offered?

Yes, the robes are still provided. You should have two in your room hanging in the closet. You can even request more if you need them for your child(ren).

On the off chance there are no robes already in your room ask one of the Club Level Cast Members or call Housekeeping to bring them up for you. This past August during our Club Level stays at the Contemporary and Boardwalk Inn it just so happened to be that both times our rooms never had the robes when we checked in. At the Contemporary we asked one of the Club Level Cast Members who called and got them for us, then at the Boardwalk we called Housekeeping our selves and they brought them up.

The only thing I can say is if there is no Cast Member there to meet you because I am not sure how it works when coming of a bus, tell a Cast Member working at the bell stand you are staying on the Tower Club and a Club Level Cast Member will take you up there so you can check-in.

Can anyone tell me if there are full decks on all the club level rooms at BC? I know that BC has some full decks and some "single person" decks....just not sure if there are both on the club level floor.

I have two questions if anyone might be able to answer them. DF, soon to be DH next December, and I want to stay CL for our honeymoon next December. I am thinking WL just because I want to be close to the MK, but I by no means want the Poly because there are two many kids. I stayed BW CL a few times when I was a kid, and I know how many kids are at the Epcot area resorts because of the great pools and theming. WL seems so romantic!

1) Can anyone tell me about CL at the WL? Is this a good idea for a CL resort?

2) If I were to book this CL right now (because I am scared of it getting booked as the end of our stay is closing in on Christmas time - 12/12-12/18/2011) could we get our rates adjusted later if we for instance found a passholder rate? We are annual passholders and I know that the AP rates don't come out until closer to next holiday season. Can we even apply the typical 40% off rate to CL, and if so can it be applied to a stay that is already booked?

Thanks! Great tips from everyone.

I had a CL room booked a couple of years ago and I was able to eventually apply an AP rate to SOME of the nights. I have read posts where people have been able to book an entire stay in CL with a discount, it just didn't work for me. I think it just depends. Each promo has a certain amount of rooms allotted - sometime CL rooms are included, sometimes not. If you feel strongly about having the room I would book it. You can always cancel.

Great, thanks for the info. I think I will wait to book until we get our wedding room blocks set up in a few weeks because we can book 30% off deluxe. I found a tip that said to make one of the hotels your honeymoon hotel so you could book using the wedding block discount. So at least we will get 30% off if I can't apply the AP discount!

But thanks for letting me know that I might at least be able to apply the discount!
