Our daughter has always wanted the Mickey balloons, too. When we stayed CL at WL last Christmas I had IPO get a half dozen of them to be in our room when we arrived. They just charged it to our room. It was a great welcome surprise!

Discount

Just wondering... has anyone ever received a discount for a CL room at the WL? We're booked in a deluxe room next summer and while we don't need a discount, it's hard thinking that we're spending so much!

Are club level rooms in general rarely discounted?

I know there's not a "real" answer and depends on availability etc, but just curious what others have found.

We just spent 11 days in a standard WL CL room at 40% off. It was the military discount. So, discounts are available.

While the CL rooms are always included in the discounts, the suites and Deluxe rooms at WL are not.

I'll be at the Poly CL over labor day weekend. I had a friend there about two weeks ago and got her to send me a picture of the the CL menu. I only have Wed-Sat., but it's been updated since the one you have posted on the Poly CL section. I'm going to go back and pull it up (posted it on the Poly thread last night) and post it here. I don't want to mess anything up, but if you might want to move it to the Poly section of this thread so that's it's updated, that might be nice for people going soon.

BTW, everything looks great!! Thanks for setting up the new thread/board!

I'm staying at the BWI CL and am wondering if its worth doing the online check-in or not? If I do it and don't like my room will I be able to change or if I do it will it speed up check-in? I can't make my mind up. I did send a room request for a room with twin beds, a Illuminations/garden view plus close to the lounge as my daughter has health problems.

It is... something! I guess that would save us about $200 or so.

Make sure you check out the AAA discount too. It can be 5% to 20% off depending on the season.

BC Coffee and Breakfast

We are headed back to BC in 6 weeks after being away from "home" for over 3 years. What is the current status of the coffee in the lounge? Is it still the old Nescaffe machines or is it the pod kind they have at AKL? Is there any type of protein available at breakfast such as hard boiled eggs, cheese, or yogurt?

It's still the old Nescafé machine as of this morning when we checked out. Yes they have hard boiled eggs and yogurt (mixed fruit flavor). They also have cereal, oatmeal, bagels, croissants, and assorted pastries.

IPO making ressies

I made all my reservations prior to booking CL but left one spot open to hopefully snag a BOG ressie. I asked IPO to make ressie as soon as reservation times open for booking. My question is do you think they will have a good shot at getting my reservation or should I just try and do it myself? I am afraid my request will get lost in the shuffle and I REALLY REALLY want to try and snag this for DD. We need it for December 13 so close to its opening.
