Ok...here's what I've done.

I've started a new thread and tried to organize especially the first few posts as much as I could. For the individual resort posts, I've done a lot of cutting and pasting (thanks so much to those who've gone before me doing this!). I know some of the links are outdated, but I will work on those today and over the next few days to get them polished up and totally updated. I'll also try to add pictures, though I only have personal ones from a few of the club lounges. I have to run for a quick lunch date now, but the framework is up and will be edited over the next few days, so y'all can start posting.

Here's the link.... http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2959196

Is it time to say it? Moderators...I think you can close this thread!

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to try and answer!

Hope everyone has a great weekend
Thanks to your fine trip report we booked at AKL CL.

I was surprised at how the price was very reasonable as compared to the other resorts and even AKL savanna views was only about 100 dollars more. We already booked the safari, I have heard nothing bad about it.

I've read reports about the GF closing restaurants and Gasparilla's for refurb sometime this fall/winter, although I can't recall the specific dates. We are trying Poly CL after our cruise next year, so that should be a nice treat staying there after a refurb and trying CL there for the first time .

Thank you Mickeynut for the info on GF restaurants. I have to do some research on the GF thread to see when they think this will happen.

The BC lounge being so small is one reason we hesitate to spend the money and try it (and I'm worried YC is the same way ). With that said, I feel the same way about a regular room vs CL at the GF (for SL). I didn't care for SL as the lounge is in the lobby right as you walk into the SL building and it was always chaotic with not enough seating to accommodate everyone staying there. I would choose a regular GV over SL for the same reason(s) as you suggest that here for the BC
I felt the same about Sugarloaf CL lounge. It is very small and being right as you walk into the building really makes it seem extra busy. The food offerings were very nice, however not being able to find a place to sit on all four of our mornings there (we are not rope drop people or late to breakfast types) really was disappointing. Also, the CM's working the desks during our stay seemed quite aloof. I guess I just expected more for Disney's flag ship resort. at their prices. I have heard GF RPC is exceptional, perhaps one day we will be able to work it into the budge.

Thanks for the great information on the secret exit, we will be sure to find it with your instructions. It certainly is nice to have more A/C time as well as cover when it doing a Florida storm.

Ah...next to Victoria & Albert's creme brulee, the Innkeeper's Club's peanut butter & raspberry sliced roll-ups with powdered sugar are the best dessert items in all of WDW...at least according to these tastebuds.

All the best.
