I looked through posts in this thread and thought I had idea of food offerings but read a different thread that said the club lounges were scaling back the appetizers...can anyone who has been at ycclub tell me what latest hot appetizers they had. I read that they were just offering snacks??? I know there's vegetable tray...

For those of you keeping up with the FastPass+ updates, do you think that Club Level guests should have any extra privileges? I love CL but think Disney should find ways to step it up a notch...

in room Toiletries

First let me apologize if this has already been answered. I did read through the first 29 pages of this thread, but by golly my boss wasnt happy In some of the posts I noticed people stating that in room toiletries have decreased. We are staying at AKL CL arriving 1/17. I typically ship a box with razors, first aid kit, etc (TSA prohibited items) If they are cutting back on toiletries, I will add a bottle of shampoo, shower gel, etc, but would prefer to not do that. TIA

You're welcome and I think I have your same, umm, issues

There is no facial cleanser, however, there is a "facial bar." But, I always bring a tube of cleanser or a small package of facial wipes.

WDWKook--

I mean really--5 people definitely need 6 bottles of shampoo, 4 facial cleansers, 3 toners and 4 moisturizers right? Of course of those 5 people 2 are less than 10 and use nothing but Johnson's. But still! And lets not even mention hair stuff

Response: I have not noticed any drop off in evening offerings at YC Club level. It is not a huge variety but consistently 2 hot items such as cheese in flaky puff pastry, pot stickers, bacon wrapped scallops (ate too many but loved them), mini spring rolls, chicken on a stick...cheese & crackers, veggies, often cold items are there too such as brocollini salad or mini seafood salad.

FWIW, i had to email the AKL IPO today about a lunch reservation and asked about FP+ (specifically, whether we could book our attractions through the IPO), and the CM who responded told me they don't know anything about FP+ yet, but they will all be attending classes about FP+ tomorrow. So, maybe by tomorrow the IPO CMs will have more info, and we can find out if we get extra perks.

My upcoming trip this April will be my first time ever staying CL. I was hoping FP+ wouldn't be an issue yet, but if it's already rolled out by then, I'd sure feel better about it if I got some bonus privileges.

I hope I got all the acronyms right. I'm new here and all these abbreviations can be mighty confusing....

It is the new fast pass system that Disney has been testing for a while and just announced they will be implementing in full over the coming months. It lets you reserve your ride times in advance of your trip although it seems you will be able to change things on the fly through your phone or at kiosks too. There will be wrist bands or something similar that keeps track of it all. Lots of hot discussion on the other sections of the DISboards.

How are the Deluxe Club rooms at AKL different than standard rooms? We are booked Club level for the 1st time at AKL and have some questions. Where is the Club lounge on the 6th floor? My DH is a Bud light beer drinker, does the lounge stock Bud light or just African beers?

Thanks!

Someone on the YC /BC thread on the resorts board just went in December and came back with a lot of amazing pics of the YC CL flood offerings. Here is the link to the post:

YC CL Food Offerings

Steph H - thanks so much for taking these awesome pics!
