Our "babies" are 21, 19 and 12...this is our 1st trip without them since 1989.
Too funny!

It will be awhile before we get a Disney trip to ourselves...
Luckily we got in a few before the kids came.

So with the savings on 4 nights opposed to 5 i wanted to upgrade to BWI CL well it wasn't available with my BB rate so i took YC SV and requested a balcony!

Please Please tell me about CL at the YC!

Also, this is our 1st experience with ME, if we land at 9:55Am what time would you say we would get to resort?

thanks
We stayed YC CL a few times, the latest was last June. I love the YC -- it's quieter than the BC but has the same great pool and location.

CL was nice. They had the "standard" breakfast snacks and oatmeal, some swedish fish and snacks in the afternoon, etc. The CMs at the desks were very nice and friendly. The YC CL rooms are all on the 5th floor -- we asked to be close to the lounge (and elevators) since there are long hallways. I think most, if not all, of the rooms have balconies.

I haven't used ME, though, so I can't comment on that.

Thanks! I did request a balcony, close to lounge sounds good too! We are super excited about our adult only trip! It's also the end of tax season for my DH so he is counting down the days. The club level planning staff took care of ME for me.

We've used ME a few times and I really don't have any complaints about it. It might take you 10 to 15 minutes to get to the ME check in and another 10 to 15 minutes before they load you on a bus. Then another 10 to 15 minutes before the bus leaves. You should be at the resort in about 2 hours or less. They show a nice video while you're on the bus ride. One of our favorite Disney traditions.

Yeah, back in our stay last June the BC had bottles of Dasani you could take with you, but only if you asked, they weren't out. It sounds like they still do that. Sounds like only the BC has the Dasani waters though, and everywhere else just has the big bottles.

Just so everyone knows..... we stayed CL at the GF in the Sugar Loaf building last week and they did not have any bottled water, large or small, glass or plastic, even when we asked.

Wow! That is terrible! In all our CL experiences I've never been refused water. I would have contacted a manager. Awful!!!!!!!!

So far BC has been the only CL where we've been given the option for small Dasani, we've had large glass Evian bottles everywhere else. We always ask for 2 bottles each day to keep in our room so that when we come back late at night we have water to drink. Between the 4 of us we easily polish off two bottles after a long night in the parks.

I agree! When we asked, they said they don't have any bottled water. We told the CM that we have always been able to get bottled water from the YC and Poly CL lounges. They offered to fill a pitcher from the Poland Springs cooler in the service area, but we declined. Fortunately, we had a car and spent one day visiting a college in Melbourne, so we stopped and bought a gallon at Publix. Because of that and several other reasons, I scored them quite low on the survey they sent online. It was just an ok stay, with no WOW factors that I expected from what is supposed to be Disney's flagship resort. We will go back to the YC or Poly for our next CL stay.

That happened to us when we were at AKL CL a few weeks ago. I was really disappointed because when we switched to the CL I specifically asked if there'd be bottled water we could grab in the mornings for our days at the parks. I was told yes but then we got there and asked and were told they didn't have bottled water.

Maybe they'll get rid of bottled water at all CLs? Practically speaking I would imagine that's a big expense for them because if everyone wanted to do what we planned we would have grabbed 2 -4 bottles a day probably twice a day. Whereas we didn't grab any cans of soda or milk. We drank from the pitchers and had some wine and beer in the evenings.

I guess we will contact IPO about the water issue. We go through A LOT of water. I'm more than happy to fill up my own bottle from the glass evian at the lounge, but I just don't want to have the sink water
We usually buy from garden grocer a 24pk of water. I was hoping when paying for CL that something like bottled water would be included?
Seems silly that they wouldn't offer it. We chose to do CL so we wouldn't have to bother with Garden Grocer! As long as there is someway that we can get bottled water, even from a poland spring cooler like outahere said, then that'll have to suffice.

Me, too. I was hoping to pass on the garden grocer this time. That water was definitely a bonus when I reserved CL. What to do, what to do.....

Maybe email the IPO and ask about water, see what they say. I don't think I've ever seen little bottles of water at any of the lounges we've stayed at-BWI, YC, AKL.

I would say if they will give you a pitcher of their bottled water from the CL kitchen (that you could take back to your room) that might be the easiest for filling water bottles for a family.
