So I had posted asking if Jungle Juice was still at AKL CL...however that wasn't what I was thinking of, oops!

What my family had loved were the African Smoothies. Which is very different from the jungle juice. And was one of the reasons why they picked AKL CL over POLY CL (well any CL for the matter)

Are the African Smoothies still offered?

Here is a pic of what it looked like.

Did not see that. During the afternoon the three options were the tea, lemonade and filtered water. Sorry.

Does the CL at WL offer any kind of 'view'? Like maybe fireworks?

Does it have any special highlights - like unique food offerings. I haven't read much about it.

You should check out Disney's WILDERNESS LODGE and VILLAS Information Thread ~2012~. It has lots of great info. We stayed in a deluxe club level room last year and it was really great. We had an obstructed view of the MK fireworks from the balcony and a full view of the parade on the water. It's a beautiful resort. The cobbler seems to be very popular with a lot of people. My 14 year old nephews were very excited that they were able to sample venison a few times(they loved it). No sure if it's unique but they also served sushi every evening. I hope this was helpful.

We are YC/BC Club people -- and I love it. Mostly I love YC/BC and the Club level is great for all of the usual reasons.

But I have to admit to feeling some food & drink offerings envy based on what you folks list from other Club levels: Mimosas. Sushi. Smoothies!!?

Might be time to test some others!! Although I hate to give up the pool and location. Decisions, decisions...

Just booked 2 nights at Boardwalk Club Level! Usually stay at Beach Club but we got a great passholder discount and have friends staying at Boardwalk so we are going to try it and then head off site to the Waldorf Astoria (free room using Hilton Points!) I have read a lot of great things about the Inkeepers Club so excited to check it out! And DD14 will be excited that they seem to have the chips she loves from Beach Club's lounge.

Poly CL

Has anyone stayed Poly CL since the renovations? Any pictures? Any changes in the food offerings? I've seen some pictures of the rooms post renovations on Tikiman's website, but I haven't seen any of the Club lounge. Thanks!

We've done BC and YC. I agree about the pool. The staff at BC is the best of all the CL levels we've tried, with Cr a close second. The location of BC/YC is also great, and I really like the room décor lighting, and set up. As much as I like the original two resorts- CR and Poly, the room set up is odd. CR has these crazy flat sinks that don't drain, and no counter space- except the sinks. Poly rooms are too dark. both have odd closets that are only minimally useful. One is cut in half with a metal bar, the other is halved by the room safe.

I also recently discovered that YC leaves snacks out all night - or at least pretty late. The lounge doors were shut at 6am, but at midnight they had gummy fish, trail mix, goldfish crackers, soft drinks and the latte machine/hot water/hot chocolate. It was great.

Oh, and the lobster salad at BC was delicious.

Thanks for the info. I peaked a little at that thread. I have a funny aversion to looking at photos before I go to a fun, new place. I am glad to hear they have sushi. I stayed at the resort once just not CL. We were on the far side; I remember getting an angled view of the water parade. If we stay there, I'll probably opt for "standard view," so probably not much to see from our actual room. I'm guessing the actual lounge doesn't have much external view. Does it overlook the lobby?

We have an all CL split stay booked the first week of June, starting at GF Sugarloaf and then heading over to a Garden Suite at BWI. I have heard from GF itinerary planning but not from BWI. Shouldn't I have gotten an email from them now that we're within 30 days to check-in?

There are lounge photos/menus/ CL info. on the WL thread with photos of the great view of both the lobby below and the WL courtyard, pool, geyser and Bay Lake from the large lounge window that you can even sit in front of. There are no STD CL Views. CL views are by-request only and are either Woods or Courtyard. Bunk beds are also a CL request and not guaranteed.

When booking a CL split, the first resort can make all your arrangements, however, all of them should contact you at some point. The general rule of thumb is that you will be contacted either 180+ days, if you booked that soon or at 90 days. With less than 90 days, you should be contacted ASAP. This doesn't always happen though so feel free to email the BWI IPO. Just include your confirmation # in the subject line.

Sometimes you just don't hear from the IPO staff when you make a CL reservation. In that case, it's a good idea to email or call them to introduce yourself and make any room requests you might have or any other requests.

We just returned from our stay in a honeymoon room at CL inWL.

From our CL room, we could see the fireworks except that there was one large tree obstructing our view.

From the lounge we could see the water parade but not the fireworks.

Hi! I have my 180 day on Monday. I gave the IPO all my dining requests. Just curious if anyone has ever NOT gotten all their requests. I always see postings of being able to get their requests but I'm kind of nervous since this is my first time not doing it myself (never stayed CL).

Well looky looky looky at all my DIS friends over on this thread too!

Just booked deluxe CL at BWI for August...for those that have stayed in the deluxe rooms, which do you prefer - being on the same floor as the CL lounge, or having the larger balcony? I requested to be above Seashore Sweets, so we're closer to the elevator/lobby, but not sure if I should request a room with the larger balcony on the 3rd floor or not. I know there aren't many of these rooms so a request probably can't be granted anyway, but I'm curious on your thoughts.

I usually do spend some time on the balcony, and LOVED the BWV BW view we had last month...but I'm thinking in August it will be as hot as the surface of the sun, and I HATE heat & humidity, so I may not be out on the balcony as much as usual. I'm thinking this is my 1st & last trip to WDW in August, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to surprise DS on his 13th b-day, and its so hard to take them out of school anymore, so we're trying summer.
