I let the Poly IPO book our BOG ADR for August even though the restaurant delayed in releasing the available dining times a few days past our 180 day mark. They booked all of our other requests and then booked BOG the day it was available for the time I requested. It was a much easier process booking the ADRs through IPO because I was having all sorts difficulty even researching times through the website myself.

This was fine for us as it would last us at night and then fill up our park water bottles. I don't even mind pitchers of filtered or bottled water but I really don't want water that tastes like Florida water. If that is what is being given out now I will order gallons to be delivered. Any recent insight?
Like you said, it's been varying recently depending on resort. I would call the IPO directly and ask.

Personally, I drink so much water that I'm having Staples deliver a case of pure spring water (Zephyrhills) directly to our resort. Then, I'll just grab a few bottles from our fridge every morning. It's a small expense (compared to staying CL). Inside the parks, Dasani is still available but at a much higher cost.
You know Zephyrhills is also Florida water, right?

It's not that FL water is not healthy, it is.

I always order a couple of cases of water because I like to bring a bunch of bottles to the parks in an insulated bag. Even in the August heat the bag kept the bottles cool until mid afternoon.

Thanks everyone for the help. I did call the IPO. H said they now have a filtered water machines. My big concern was that I hate theater of Florida water. He said he has tried it and does not tste like that at all. So I am crossing my fingers and going without shipping water. We really don't like to use the plastic water bottles and bring our own reusable ones. Plus we are going at the end of April so not dealing with summer heat. Will let you all know the results when we get back!

We are book for Poly GVCL in July and are trying to learn the ins-and-outs of CL before then! I have read this entire thread and have loved every second of it. Thank you so much to all that have contributed information! Keep it coming!

Can anyone tell me some of the "kid friendly" foods that the lounge may offer at each time? I am pretty good with breakfast and I know that DD2 will eat everything that I read... but I am curious at the other times if there are things that she will enjoy... any ideas?

Thanks!!!

I will be there next week. Usually afternoon is just treats/snacks. Chips , cookies maybe fruit etc. I remember CR CL had make your own PB n J 12-4 (?) and my son loved that. I will see what is offered afternoons and evening. Anything specific you are looking for? Reading most threads usually lots of fruits, cookies, and often uncrustables or PB n j offered. You can request milk all day long if not in cooler. My ds drinks a lot of milk! I have stayed at CR and GF CL but this my first CL at Poly so I am not 100%sure what they will have.
My ds eats a lot of cereal so, i would get in am and keep for later in day. Sometimes I kept bagels in room for later too. Don't be afraid to take what you like best for later.

Thanks! I know she will eat all of the fruit and carrot sticks... She'll enjoy yogurt and pbj ... And cereal... She's also good with meats as long as she believe them to be chicken. Any chance they have ketchup? I will bring some if not as she will eat most meats as long as she can dip!

It's not that FL water is not healthy, it is.
They're all FDA approved and hence healthy. Sorry, if it sounds like I'm maligning it. I've drunken FL water since I was visiting FL in the 1950's before WDW was even a concept. I still prefer spring water over processed water. That's just my preference.

With Nestlé owning Zephryhills and others, you have no idea where the water actually comes from. It's probably FL but they don't guarantee it. It could be from a well or a spring just not from the municipal water supply.

You can always grab ketchup from capt cooks. I remember they had pbj crustables. My kids ate a lot of cheese and crackers at night for apps. I dont remember a lot of plain meats.

I saw your post, researched the discount, and called today for a $1298 refund for our Poly CL stay. Thanks for the heads up!
