Is WL CL ever included in the discounts? I'd like to try CL there; love the lodge itself and being club level would just ramp up the enjoyment, I think!

Yes . We stayed WL CL on a discount and I often see it offered when new discounts come out. With that said, it is like any other resort in that a discount will be offered for that particular room type if occupancy is low for a certain time period and Disney sees the need to fill those rooms . I would definitely recommend giving WL CL a try as the food offerings are great, the CMs are awesome, and the lounge seating is arranged in a way that makes it a great place to sit and relax while overlooking the beautiful lobby .

BWI CL question

Can anyone tell mee what is currently being offered for the 5-7 appys? I have seen lists for other resorts, but am not finding BW. I would like to get an idea. The only thing I have seen is cheese and crackers, but it has always been more than that when we have had the chance to stay CL.

Thanks

After talking everyone else into doing WL CL, I had to question why we weren't doing it again....well, I will question no more! We are headed back to WL CL for another glorious 10 nights in April!!!

Just an observation....

Because I am a chronic resort changer, I have been booked at a few different CL's and so have had email correspondance with a couple of the IPO's. I have noticed that YC IPO is really quick!!! Sometimes, I'll get a response from them before even the automated response that they will respond w/in 24 hours!!! I've noticed that the WL IPO will often take close to the full 24 hours to respond....maybe some are busier than others?

But, again, it's just an observation...YC IPO is lightening fast!

I always initiate first contact. You should email them and introduce yourself.

The above post made me think, does CL contact you or will it be better to contact them? Is there a timeframe that works. I know I am not having them make all my reservations but some and dd activities. Do the also book golfing for you?

Sorry for so many questions, this is a whole new thing for me.

I emailed them first....especially if you
use a TA because the IPOs don't even know you exist. IPO at AKL is fabulous I have spoken with them and emailed them a couple times already and they have been wonderful.

I booked directly through Disney a little over a month ago and haven't heard from anyone. We go the end of next month. Do I need to reach out to them with any requests or wait for them to contact me?

Hmm IPO should have contacted you already, I'd suggest sending them an email or calling the appropriate phone # for your resort's IPO.

Thought I would throw out my experience of contact with the IPO before our trip. So far I am very impressed! We are staying at WL in early December. We booked the trip through the Disney website 10 months out. The IPO 1st initiated contact via e-mail probably 8/9ish months out. We got an initial Howdy. Then at about 7 months out we got an e-mail with the survey to fill out about ADR's, flights, etc. Then I got an itineray with my ADRs at like 8:00am on the 180 day, then another e-mail with my itinerary again about a month ago asking if we needed anything. So far the IPO has been great!

Which brings me to a question. Since my initial itinerary I have become a crazy ADR changer and have modified, added, canceled, etc. So my ADR's now barely resemble what they initially booked for me (I did keep the Ohana on arrival day which was my main motiviation for letting them book my ADS's in the 1st place). In one of their e-mails they asked me to notify them of any changes to my initerary. Should I bother sending them an updated list. I don't want to put more work on them and didn't know if they really needed or cared about the information.
