Thanks, I think I just may build up the courage to ask. They might think I am a lush, but who cares, I'll be at Disney!!!!!

I just booked my bounce back stay at AKL - CL for August. I can't wait for my first stay at AKL... I hope the next 204 days fly by!

Just so I don't look like a lush (shhhh don't tell) I kept seeing adults walking around w champagne flutes filled w what I THOUGHT was jungle juice. Until the nice lady behind me said 'I love mimosas' I turned around so fast my head popped off. . Can't wait till oct for our bounce back!!! It will be my dd's 8th bday.

Know what you mean. My "lush" question of the day is can you ask them for wine or beer when they are closed from 7:00-8:00? We are staying CL at WL (this is my first CL experience). I have 5 kids and want to know should I need to buy some wine because I will need a "little" wine after disney with them! Or can I grab a glass while they are closed by asking?

We got an e-mail from the IPO @ AKL a couple months (2 or 3 maybe?) before our arrival date. Asking about room, arrival time, special celebrations, requests, etc. If you haven't recieved an e-mail give them a call.

Who cares, you are on vacation. Have all the mimosas you want (as long as you take the bus & don't drive yourself to the parks )

I very much like using IPO and have never been disappointed. I hope this will be your experience too.
Spoiled is having an IPO & TA babysitting your ADRs. I haven't had to do anything for this trip. Now if I could just get them to drive us down there .

We are doing a split stay in May and as result will be checking in at the Poly at 7:30 am, is that worth mentioning to the IPO? It would be great to have our room ready but it's definitely not a necessity.

I did a split stay one year and told the poly and they had our room ready for us. It doesn't hurt to tell them.

I'm curious about this too. We are doing our first CL stay in March. Our first stay at AKL too - we are pretty excited! :D

In going through the CL thread some post suggest not doing the advance on line check in, so you can have the whole club experience. But if you do not do the advance check in, how do they know when you'll most likely arrive? Or do you simply walk in the lobby and ask for the CL check in?

The WL IPO just sent me an email asking me my arrival info and I have done online check in. They included the latest version of our itinerary too. The email also tells us what to do when we arrive in regards to the resort knowing we are CL guests. I suspect each IPO sends something similar but don't know for sure. It's our first CL stay

Thank you.

Do you recall about when you received the email? We are heading there in 37 days.

They had sent me an itinerary back in September - at the 180 mark when our ADRs were made. But since then our party grew from 3 to 7, so I changed all the ADRs myself. I guess I should send them the changes if they are going to print out an itinerary.

We simply asked a CM nicely (anytime day or night that they were there) for a glass of wine or beer. Also stuff like sparkling water and gummy bears

As for online checkin---we used it for our recent trip and it worked like a charm. Upon arrival to AKL they asked for photo id, and my Dh said 'checking in' but did not say anything about CL. As we pulled up to valet we were approached and asked 'Shingler safari?' we were taken directly upstairs, all of our KtoK were ready, we were given a drink and a overview of the resort and all/any questions answered. They offered to show us to our room. The whole thing worked beautifully.
