Remember, WL has Honeymoon rooms! They are CL. They have king size beds and a special tub set up. There are only 4 of these rooms, so they do tend to book quickly.
If you do book one, two of these rooms face the MK and can be requested (although, as we all know, they cannot be guaranteed!)

Thought I'd jump in since I have stayed in one of those honeymoon rooms. We were lucky enough to get one of the MK view rooms without even asking. You can see the top of Space Mountain and about the top 1/3 of the castle but the best thing is you can see the fireworks from your balcony. The two rooms on that side are the only rooms there so you don't really have to worry about noisy neighbors and right outside the door you have a great view of the lobby, we were there in December so we got to see Chirstmas decorations. As to the tub it is awesome, it is a huge spa tub with water jets and has a little ledge where some pretty rock and candles were laid out, it was nice to soak in there after a day at the parks.

Just returned late last night from BWI and the wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, magical, etc., etc., etc. Innkeepers Club. Loved it even more than before, if possible. Will post later but have tons of things to catch up with, so will probably be tonight or tomorrow.

BWI is the best.

Anyone recently returned from BC CL? Is the 24 hour lounge access "test" still going on?

So excited!! We received our welcome letter email today for our June AKV-CL stay. We stayed AKV-CL back in 2008 and never received the email. It's fun to get Disney mail/email!

Our kids know about the trip but they don't know we're staying AKV-CL, can't wait to plan some surprises for them.

One more week to go, and I cannot wait! We did not schedule any time in the parks the first day, since we have to leave so early in the morning for our flights. We thought we would relax in the lounge a bit with the boys until our room was ready - freshen up, and explore the resort, then come back up to the lounge and our room, before strolling down to the boardwalk for dinner. I cannot wait!

Thoughts on my visit to Boardwalk Inn--- I didn't know how this whole trip was going to go, since I was taking my Mother, with moderate Alzheimer's. It was also the first Disney trip we have taken (and we started in 1973), with just the two of us. Family or friends have always gone with us, but this time I was unsure how things would go because of her disease, and didn't want to slow anyone else down.

The people at Boardwalk are totally amazing. Anita, Linda, Lorenzo (those 3 especially), Jackie, Pete---every last one of them. They are all so pleasant and "real". They really do make you feel at home, and as if you are all part of a family. My grandkids want me to take them to Poly next year---I'll compromise, and give them a Poly/BWI split stay. I could not stand being here and not staying at Boardwalk.

Had a wonderful boardwalk view, and this trip is the first where we spent a lot of time out on the balcony. Some people complain about the size of the balcony, but the two of us comfortably spent hours out there. Loved watching the EPCOT fireworks from the club balcony---and could see the Magic Kingdom fireworks from my own balcony! (had a 4th floor room)

Who in heavens name was complaining about Disney cutting down the amount of food offered in the lounges? Breakfast is always oatmeal, 2 kinds of cereal, croissants, fresh fruit, 2 kinds of bagels, pastries (at least 2 kinds), and muffins. Those chocolate chip muffins and the blueberry muffins were delicious!

Afternoon snacks were fishy crackers, chocolate covered almonds, chocolate covered raisins, 2 types of cookies, and the home made chips, along with canned drinks and lemonade and iced tea.

Evening appetizers were fresh veggies with dip, humus, pita bread, crackers, cheeses, 3 types of Greek salad, and 2 different hot offerings. I have no idea what some of the hot things were, but---I am not an adventurous eater, and I loved them. The pot stickers were fabulous.

Evening desserts? I know there were 3 types of wine and 3 types of beer offered. Food varied from rice krispie treat, the caramel apple things, cookies, cheesecakes (the key lime was to die for), delicious chocolate cupcakes, canoli, chocolate covered strawberries, and some other types of chocolate. Plenty of choice.

Someone once said that the staff members watch and make you uncomfortable to get too much food. Not here!

Rooms were always clean, and housekeeping did a wonderful job replinishing everything. I always like turndown service, with the taffy and the card left on the pillow, and all the dirty towels replaced, trash emptied, etc.

Big River Grille seemed to be having plumbing problems a couple of days when we were there, and was closed. Used Boardwalk to Go kiosk once, and the food was surprisingly good. Went to the quiet pool on the Inn side a couple of times---no one there but me, which was wonderful.

Transportation was much better this time than last---before , we often made stops at Swan, Dolphin, Yacht and beach. This time, it was just Swan/Dolphin, and on the return trips, Boardwalk was always the first stop.

It did surprise me that the "A" was burned out on the huge "The Boardwalk" sign that burns over the Villa side, and was never fixed. Must be something major. Everything else in the hotel and on the boardwalk was pristine and working.

Disney was doing computer updates while we were there, so there were plenty of managers and suits running around on the floor. I made sure to praise the staff members whenever I could.

Although Mom and I made it to all the parks, and did most of the park things I wanted to do, I did plan a lot of resort time this trip--in fact, this is the most time we have spent just staying at the resort. I enjoyed it so much, and I know she did as well. Very relaxing, great environment, special people. I miss them already.

On-Line Check In

We are finally at the 10 day mark...Yippeeee!!! Since we are staying CL, is it necessary, suggested and/or a good idea to do on-line check in? I am not too worried about what room we get, I would like a full balcony and it is on my reservation as my only request.

Your thoughts and advice will be greatly appreciated.....

Our plans are coming together nicely. I received an e-mail from AKL IPO on Monday. I phoned them on Thursday to put in my first batch of requests. I sent an e-mail Thursday evening and received an immediate reply, which surprised me because it was outside of their normal business hours.

Many of our dining arrangements are still up in the air so I may just do those myself. Hopefully IPO will be able to secure the reservations I have requested, because they are for large parties at specific times.
