I was wondering if anyone has heard whether the poly cl menu has changed since the renovations?

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

Just stayed RPC earlier this month. The food offerings were very nice. The liquors were all dark, but the wine and Champagne were equally mixed and very tasty. Some of the staff were very pleasant and did everything to make you feel at home. Some of the hospitality staff like Patty, were a hit or miss(she only spoke if she liked you).

Breakfast had lots to choose from. It ranged from 3 different cereals, muffins, pastries, 3 kinds of yogurt, ham, turkey, croissants, bagels, hot oatmeal with all the sides you could imagine, fruit, sliced cheese, spreadable cheese and different juices.

Lunch/snack were things like homemade chips, pretzels, cheese, cupcakes, grilled zucchini and squash, crackers, dips, carrot and celery sticks, grape tomatoes. lots of soda, water

Hot appetizers rotated nightly with things like Pinatas, fried raviolis, bacon wrapped chicken, Dur-kin chicken strips on a stick, fruits, wine, liquors, beer ( dos equis, Heineken, yuengling, Sam Adams) All you can drink

Desserts were mini cheesecake tarts, fresh fruit tarts, custard, cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, scones, chocolate covered cookies

*they will even provide you with a tray to carry everything back to your suite

We were on the floor known as the "VIP" floor. It required that we used the Gold internal elevators "service" elevators and not accessible by other guest from the main club level elevators( you had to go up to go down if you wanted to use main elevators). I loved having the back entrance to enter our room. The elevator allowed us to access GIG from the side and return privately in the same manner. We met a lot of staff and they were all pleasant. I joked to my husband about how much our floor smelled like recently minted/pressed money as we walked through the halls, he agreed but only to point our that it was OUR money that scented the air. There were only 7 other rooms on our floor too, it was very private and quiet

The Concierge guest staff were awesome, Janice assisted us a lot and she even sent someone out to purchase a charger for our battery after it was misplaced. I can't wait till we head back in May

WL Club Level

Hi all, I am considering upgrading us to CL for our trip in June... we have had a rough few months and DH could use a surprise pick me up.

We've only stayed CL once before, but it was a deluxe room so the view was outstanding. From what I can see on the WL thread, it looks like a majority of the WL CL rooms have a balcony that looks down at the parking lot or truck area. Can anyone confirm? I don't want to spend all that $ to upgrade to a worse view. Thanks!

Our CL room overlooked the pool but the balcony had a solid wall so nothing was visible unless we were standing against the rail/wall. From what I understand, all balconies on the CL floor have the same wall regardless of view if that helps? We could see the ELP from the balcony if we stood at the rail each night!

It is undergoing renovations currently. The Hawaii building is completed I think. I've seen pictures of the new rooms but haven't heard much about the lounge other than new carpet. Curious if the food has remained the same... If Joffrey coffee is there... Any changes!

I'm sure this has been asked before but couldn't find it under search.

Does anyone who has stayed at BWI CL recently know if they keep the lounge doors open after 10?

When we were at BC last year they kept the doors open and we loved being able to stop by after parks to grab a hot coffee or tea, soda, some swedish fish, etc.

There's a bunch of photos floating around -- someone stayed in the Hawaii building right when it opened after the refub -- and the photos are on here. There are also some on Tikiman's website. IMO they are very different from the previous decor, and even the bathrooms were completely rehabbed.

Request a CL room with a "view of the Inner Courtyard ans Silver Springs" and I think you will be quite happy!

Thanks! I have been looking at the bad-room-view thread and was getting worried! If we upgrade, I'll be sure to put in the request.
