It's been several years since the CL lounges had water that we could take to the parks. I really wish they still did. For us water drinkers, the cases of soda and beer they serve don't mean anything.

The last few trips there was at least bottled water (in glass) in the lounge. But we have resorted to ordering cases from garden grocer, which really does seem silly when we are staying CL.

I have complained to the IPO offices each trip. Perhaps if more people do the same something will change.

So bottled water for CL guest to use in the parks were previously listed as a perk or was it just something CL provided to be used in the club or to take back to the room. I'm all for saying something but I'd love to know if it was actually a perk or something that CL guest just did on their own. Thanks

Yes, quite a number of years ago (4 or 5 maybe?), bottled water for guests was a perk of CL. It went by the wayside when CL services were being cut due to the downturn in the economy. Given the exorbitant cost of CL these days, one would think it is a perk they could afford to reinstate.

Yep. They used to have bottles that we were welcome to take with us. And I agree that the cost of staying CL (over a regular room) has gone way up, while the amenities have been sliding some. Since we do split stays each time, it would be nice not to have to move a case or a case and a half of water each time...

Thanks for responding, I guess I better grab two cases from the store tomorrow

This water thing is a bummer. Sounds like we'll need to make our complimentary Publix stop this trip just for water. We usually only stop when we do our DVC stays.

I just noticed this..

That was our last time at POLY CL too!

I wanted it for our Anniversary trip this April but it wasn't available with my 35% BB rate. I just couldn't let that rate go so we are trying BWI CL.

Hoping for a BB rate next year!

Hi everyone, this is my first post! I've really enjoyed reading through this thread. I had a quick question, if staying club level, at then end of your trip can you check into ME and get boarding passes from the club level consierge or do you go into the main lobby to do it? Thanks!

In our experience, this is done for you on your last night. We woke up on our last morning and everything had been printed and was out under our door.

And..... to the Dis!

Hoping to do V&A's Queen Victoria room in October when we go - anyone have experience having the IPO set up this for them or should we do this on our own?

Also, we'll have to use Kids Nite Out that evening (staying Poly CL) - probably a dumb question and I know we'll figure it out, but wondering if anyone knew if will we have to meet the sitter somewhere or will they be able to come to the room directly somehow?

The last time I was able to get water bottles from CL was April 2011 at Contemporary and we had to specifically ask for them. They were the little bottles that are in the kids meals at the counter service restaurants.

Yay after lots and lots of math we pulled the trigger and booked BC CL SV! I can't believe it. We usually stay at POP. Going for 11 days 9/18-9/28. I'm so excited!

and the amount of waste. Club CM's reported that many guest were stocking up their frigs with large volume of water bottles. When they leave they are required to be thrown away. Also, remember Disney has Green initiatives too. Just another case of people wanting and hording more than they need leading to changes.

Bottle Water - Being Green

The last few club level stays, I have packed a refillable water bottle, like the one I take to the gym. The Wilderness lodge has a large filtered, chilled water dispenser and I simply fill my water bottle up from there each time I go in and out of the hotel. Most of the clubs will have some type of filtered, chilled water, it just won't be in a convenient grab and go plastic bottle.

I do agree that we pay enough they should provide it, but also understand the attempt to eliminate so much waste.
