Thanks, I emailed them yesterday and got a response pretty quickly. They sent me the packet with all the info they need.

What do you do with your used plates after eating in the lounge?

Last year we stayed club level at BC for the first time. We asked a cast member where we should put our dirty plates and we were told not to worry and leave them there.

I felt like such a slob just getting up and leaving my mess behind. Is this the right thing to do or was the CM just being polite?

I had the same concerns at AKL. I usually put them on the flat area of the trash. Several times I had CMs take them from me as I walked up. They did clear the table one day when I left my DDs (12 and 7) w/ my brother. I had to take DS to the lav, and we had a few empty plates. We also had my BRAND NEW FRESH mimosa. They came by and said they couldn't have alcohol with only minors at the table. My brother said 'ok' and helped them clear--- the catch? He's 22!! I didn't let him live that one down.

What is your experience with having IPO get you tickets for a hard ticket event? I would like to go to MNSSHP and the tickets won't be out until May. I was hoping IPO could deal w/ that.

Ouch that must have hurt being told you are a minor at 22 and not correcting them.

Thanks for your input on the subject.

At both the YC and BC that's basically what we were told as well. And I did feel bad just getting up and leaving a mess. At the Poly and AKL there was definitely a place near the trash where we could bus our dishes. I'm pretty sure there was a spot at the GF, too. I think it just depends on the setup of each individual lounge.

This aspect is always a bit of confusion for us as well. It sems like at CR (this may change after the current remodel), the norm was for folks to put them on one of the trays that are out, and ain a certina area. CM's are quick ot remove them. At GF, folks did put them near the trash, but I was told I did not need todo that- as in please just leave them on the table. I think the CM's want to make sur they wipe down tables after folks are done, and seeing dishes lets them nkow they need to wipe. The downside, is that if you leave your plates unattended- even if they have food - for any length of time- staff will clear them and another guest may swoop in to steal your seat. That's happened to me when I tried to get more coffee, or even just some silverware!

It seems to me, that it is often a matter of CM preference.

Thanks mmmears and mickeyluv'r for your input.

I guess it is a CM preference. I'll look around to see what the majority of others are doing and follow their lead. Or I'll just ask again so I feel better about my decision.

At BW CL there is a round cloth covered table where many guests place their dirty dishes. It is regularly cleared by CM's. It's not hard to miss, as you walk in it's slightly ahead and to your left.

Perfect! I will look for the table.

Thank you.

Our next stay is in June at BWI (because we got a really good discount on deluxe room). We booked within the 180 days, got all ADR's we wanted. Even changed some several weeks later and got what we wanted.

The IPO's are very good at what they do. They have to tell you it takes a few days to get back to you, but I would put money on them emailing you on Saturday.

I vote for you to leave it be. I think most here would advise the same.

Keep us informed and I hope you have a wonderful vacation.
Thank you for your reply. It made me feel a little better. I will more than likely decide tomorrow night what I am going to do. Right now I am leaning toward them doing it except for one or two of them.

I am like you too hard to give up control. But last couple times I let poly cl do it and they did a great job everything I asked for. I didnt get the email first thing in the am but I checked my acct and saw charges for cinderella case so I knew it was done first thing in the am. Fyi I hear a lot of people are having a hard time doing extended dining only so if you decided to do it yourself you may have to call. Good Luck!

Today was ADR day. At 7:30am I got an email from BC IPO that they got every single one of our requested ADRs for the times I asked for for our entire 11 day stay. I am so so excited. 180 days to go!! Weve never stayed CL before and I'm already in love with it!!
