It should just be the regular .com ending (no space...the Dis does that for some reason)...but anyway, shortly thereafter, you should get a generic automatic response that they will respond w/in 24 hours. If you don't get that, it's not going to the right address, so just check that.

And yeah, sounds like the SV might be pretty neat! We are not big sit out on the balcony people anyway, but a potential view of fireworks in the distance would be cool!

Staying YC CL SV any requests that I should make for room? The original CM told me all SV CL had a day bed, but IOP informed me this is not so. I requested a daybed but if We don't get it a cot will be fine for my son. Daughter 13 he's turning 10 if they had to sleep together that would be a nightmare

Not all rooms have a daybed, that is true. We had a party of 5 and didn't even get one. They brought us a roll away.

Hello! Im newer to the board & I've just read thru all 43 pages, and wanted your opinion. My DH has it set in his mind that in order to do Disney to his liking he wants to always do DDP for meals. I'd love to try CL, I do understand that CL is by no means a meal replacement, but I feel like CL with DDP would be too much. We don't necessarily do 3 sit down meals every day as we enjoy signature dining, but we're so full with just our DDP tha CL seems over the top. So I'm exploring idea of a split stay to just try CL for a few days without DDP & then have reg stay at our fav BC/YC w/ DDP. Any thoughts on this?

Would you prefer to start split stay with CL or end with CL?

I think I'd like to try AKL for CL since its so far out & then just spend our few days at AK, the hotel & maybe try the Sunrise Safari. Any thoughts on this? Then reg BC/YC stay we'd do the other parks as I hate the buses.
Thanks,
Angee

I think the DDxP would probably be overkill, but the DDP combined with Club Level is not bad. You can have breakfast every morning in the lounge, and then one quick service and one table service meal per day. The regular DDP doesn't come with appetizers, but if you were in the mood for some, they are available in the lounge. You can have just one, to try it rather than getting a giant order right before your meal at the restaurant.

Plus, you don't have to run around the resort filling your mug, you can get drinks and adult beverages right on your floor. It's nice and convenient.

Hi!,

We will be staying at YC CL SV in May. This is my 7th trip, but first CL! We are hoping to not even have to use Garden Grocer since we will be using the lounge for eats. However, my family of 5 (hopefully getting a daybed, not a rollaway ) drinks LOTS and LOTS of water. We just booked yesterday, so the IPO hasn't made contact just yet, but if we don't hear we will be sure to contact them. Do we make a note of needing lots of bottled water to the email (listed on first page on thread?)

Check the pricing, a room discount & paying out of pocket may be cheaper than the dining plan. Even "free" dining when tacked onto a rack rate room can be the more expensive option. And if you won't eat all that food, you end up paying the higher room rate & not using the full plan.

As for how to end the stay, I would finish the trip w/the CL. Always end at the nicer option, otherwise you change "down" & it can be a bit of a disappointment.

I am so excited!! I just booked the last four nights of our trip at the Poly GVCL. I am looking forward to getting a new room and seeing the castle from the lounge.

Thanks AliceIn! The reg DDP may be good idea or just out of pocket. I do like the idea of not bothering with refillable mugs; unless at pool of course!

Thanks Zima-Cheryl! We've never had free dining, just always paid for it. We've gotten 35% off the rooms at BC/YC because went in Feb/March when not as busy. I'd hate to pay full rack rate for sure. CL just sounds like cool experience! I'd love to be pampered for a few days for sure .

Im leaning towards ending with CL, I think it would be a great way to end trip.

Have you ever done a split stay? Or the sunrise safari?

Thanks,
Angee

One important factor to consider is if you are booking a package. If you are looking at a package that includes park tickets and the dining plan and you want to split that stay with a "Non dining plan" segment you would want to do the package first and then inquire about adding additional days to your park tickets that would extend into your room-only CL stay. If you tried to do your room-only CL stay first then do a package with dining second you'd have to buy tickets again.
