Comparing CL - YC vs GF

We've stayed CL at the YC three times and really enjoyed it. However, DW has always wanted to stay at GF so we're going to try GF Sugarloaf on our next trip (YC is my favorite resort).

No matter what, we WILL be going back to the YC in the future.

I would love to hear any comments comparing YC CL vs GF CL, so we have an idea of what to expect. It will be me, DW and DS18. Anyone?

Thanks.

Teena and YCFAN - I'll definitely be thinking of you on the 22nd! Truly the best Christmas presents ever are when our loved ones come "home"!

Dee - Hope you had a great time at your Christmas party. Being sick has been a killer since I always run (and shop for) our Santa's Secret Workshop. Luckily I got an early start. With my own family I'm basicall done (thank goodness for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!) except for more stocking stuffers and gift cards.

Pixarmom - Never stayed at BWI CL but we did stay at YC CL and loved it!

MickeyT - are you staying CR for the marathon? Whenever DH runs the marathon we always stay at a MK resort. Have a magical trip (and thanks for the BF pictures - they always lift my spirits).

We've stayed in Sugar Loaf three times I think and had one short stay in YC club. Overall, I like Sugar Loaf better. The lounge is bigger and the food offerings more expansive. Instead of just snacks during the day, there are mid day offerings and then tea around 2pm. The scones are just wonderful. If you've ever had tea at the GF, the same ones are served in the lounge. Also like that champagne is served from 5-7pm or was last we were there.

Most of the CMs at both resorts were great. At each, we encountered one who was incompetent and snobby at the same time. Interestingly, I discovered in the course of dealing with those two that they were not regulars. All other CMs were helpful.

Can't go wrong with either, I think.

Robyn, sorry you are under the weather. To those welcoming family home for the holidays, enjoy! We were blessed with that joy at Thanksgiving. It is truly the best.

Thanks...... we've also run into one CM at the YC CL that wasn't up to the standards of the others. Unfortunately, that person is a regular and we've encountered them each stay. On the up side though, one of our favorite YC CL CM's transferred to the GF last summer. If that's true, he has always been very friendly and helpful and it would be great to see him again.

DW will love going to tea. She says she's taking a break from the parks every afternoon, just to go back to the GF for tea.

I have stayed cl at the YC once and RPC at the GF once. Ha, that's a lot of initials. Anyway, I found the food to be a little better at the GF because there were a few more options at breakfast and there was also afternoon tea with scones and a few other items.

I found the CM's at the YC to be much friendlier although the ones at the GF were fine. I preferred the YC overall, but would absolutely take a GF trip again. They are both wonderful! Have fun!

Where do they have the afternoon tea at the GF? Is there a menu with desserts and tea?

Gardenview Lounge on the main floor of the GF offers tea every day. Here's the menu:

Both club levels offer the same delicious scones in the afternoon along with clotted cream and some other goodies. So good. Hope that helps.

We stay CL at YC, so it might be better going back to the YC for tea and scones when we visit Epcot or Hollywood Studios. We usually have breakfast and a snack at the end of the day at the CL. It looks like we might have to go back in the afternoon too.
