They pulled all of mine up themselves. They sent me a copy of my itinerary based on what they saw in the system since I didn't send then any info for the reservations I already made.

That's good to know for the future! I didn't think they could do that! Awesome!

Sometimes it isn't 100% accurate though! Like last year. I tweaked my ADRs so much that when they printed my itinerary at check-in it was totally off. Thank goodness I always bring my own spreadsheet.

How did you like CR Atrium Club? I've stayed GF SL and didn't care for it. We are trying the CR for the first time in December and I can't decide between a regular TPV or CL . We are also trying Poly CL in December, so I hope you will report back on that .

We loved Atrium club!

The space was modern and interesting to the eye. The 12th floor view was beautiful! We never found the lounge over crowded either. It is nice that all the rooms are on the same floor as club so I would SKIP( if no one around) down to the lounge , grab a snack and then walk back to room. (Ds was always eating).

Food offerings were all good, very similar to GF except to afternoon there is less.

I won't know until I try poly but we liked CR way better than GF SL. The lounge is so dull

The MK view from CR is just a favorite space for me. I was content just to sit with either a cup of coffee or glass of wine and I didn't care if I ever got to a park

You will love it!

Thanks for your input . I haven't read a lot of reviews about CR CL, but from what I have read, most people seem to really like it (especially the view from the lounge). I agree about GF SL....the lounge was the biggest disappointment to me. The offerings are the same in SL as in RPC, but the SL lounge is too small (IMO) and I don't like how it's located right inside the SL lobby. It was also very crowded most of time with not a lot of room to move around and I didn't think there was enough seating for the amount of people staying there. One thing I loved about GF RPC was sitting in the lounge early in the morning watching the resort "wake up", while everyone else was getting ready. I can just imagine sitting in the CR lounge looking out at MK first thing in the morning .

Thanks again.....I have some thinking to do, but CR CL is looking better and better .

Hi! Just got a question about how do you plan with IPO when your 180 days is aproaching to do lunch or dinner reservationd, but the park hours are not published yet? Just wondering how do you make plans for reservations with the park that you will visit on any given day? Any suggestions?

I've never received any emails from the IPO giving me any survey, etc.. I did call them at the 180 day point to reserve the Sunrise Safari, did get that, woohoo!

This will be our first CL stay in WDW.

I can't help as I don't use IPO for ADRs when staying CL and we usually eat TS in the resorts, but hopefully someone will come along with some advice/suggestions .

If you didn't reserve directly with Disney, the IPO won't email you. You have to initiate contact by sending them an email.

I would just send them a email. We are staying CL at the Poly for the first time in September. IPO made all my reservations for us. It was wonderful We got everything that we wanted and at the time we asked for(except for one, it was 5 mins later) Check easywdw. Josh should have the October hours posted there for you. I used that for ours and it helped out great.

I love to make our ADR, but I will say with all the problems with the new site I did not want to chance it. At 7 a.m. on 180 day I got a email with all of our conf. numbers. Could not be any easier than that.

Contact them so the can send you the sheet you need to fill out ASAP and let them make your ADR, you wont be sorry.

Have a wonderful trip!

I just glanced at the Swan and Dolphin website today but it mentioned something about a club level. Is that correct? If so - has anyone stayed there?

And even if you do reserve with Disney, you may need to initiate the contact (at least that's been my experience 90% of the time).

Yay for getting the Sunrise Safari! My family has taken that one several times and we get something new out of it each time! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do... AKL CL is really nice -- I love their lounge area.
