I cheated, I left dh and ds out of it and only went with dd17.

WE loved it and it was more fun with out the guys being bored.

Your guys are not going to love it the way us girls do BUT moms should get what we want sometimes because we usually put everyone else's needs first.

The food was tasty and the atmosphere was so "castle-y" . DD liked the light up goblet even at her age.

You will love it!

VERY professional feel and loved the food offerings. Will be back!

I posted some pics on CR thread but here are a few more:

very good oatmeal served with brown sugar, dried pineapple, dried bananas and raisins.

Love your pictures! Thanks!

You got bring your own instant if you wanted but definitely not necessary.

We were there in May. They did not have oatmeal.

WL only offers oatmeal seasonally from December 21 - March 19. Yes, you could certainly bring your own and use the hot water for the tea.

Thanks for the review We stayed at the CR once (not CL) and I never thought I'd go back, but your report makes me think maybe.

Can Guest Visit Your Club Level Room

Hi,

After a long absence we are finally returning to Disney World. We are planning on staying at the Yacht Club on Club Level. I cannot remember if visitors are allowed in your room.
Our son & girlfriend are staying at a different hotel, and will be meeting us every morning at the Yacht Club. Can we bring them up to our room? Sorry if this is already posted somewhere. I tried to find it but could not.

Magical Express Question

When using Magical Express, what has your experience been with luggage arrival? Does it get there in a reasonable time frame? Do you get any special consideration being club level? I am concerned about being stuck for the evening without luggage (we arrive at 1:00 PM).

Heading back to the Poly after three years!!!

So very excited to be returning to the Hawaii longhouse this coming October and am wondering if Chef Eugene is still heading up the CL lounge? He had just taken over when we were last there and we thought he was amazing. He was so helpful and sweet to us so we are really hoping to see him again this trip.

TIA

You can bring them to your room, but not to the lounge. The lounge and its offerings are for CL guests only.

I guess I broke the rules. Brought a friend up once. No one said a thing. What's the difference then bringing snacks back to the room?

As bowbat posted, you can take anyone up to your room, just not into the lounge.

We've never used DME, but from what I've read about it, I think it could take a few hours before getting your luggage. If you arrive at 1:00 pm, you might not see your luggage until around 4:00-5:00 pm. Hopefully someone will be able to give a more accurate time frame from experience .

I can't help with your question about Chef Eugene, but just wanted to say congrats on being able to get back to the Poly .

There's no problem with taking others to your room....they just can't (or aren't supposed to) go to the lounge as the lounge/offerings are for CL guests only, as the pp mentioned.

johnsonet, wonderful photos and review. We've never stayed at CR proper but now I am determined to try club level there one day even if for a short stay. Thanks for sharing.

west&east, you're a bad influence! I mentioned CL on the cruise to DH, and after looking at some reviews and some pix online of the extended balcony category V rooms, he realized one of those was still available on deck 12 for the cruise we wanted, and booked it! So, now we'll go from AKL CL to CL on the Dream with an extended balcony.

I knew that "once in a lifetime" AKL CL trip we took in April would come back to bite me! We're completely spoiled now. My $$ disney trips have become $$$$$$$$$$$ trips!
Sorry I have been off line for a while but congrats on the cat V!! We upgraded to cat V from a 5c about a week before our cruise. The nice thing is that the price is what you would have paid at time of booking. Reading the latest comments on how club level does not get you concierge service, I can truly say that the concierge staff on DCL is amazing. Read up on the DCL board. They will take care of so many things before and during your trip. We got our preferred dining rotation, amazing tables in each dining room, Palo and Remy reservations all one week before the cruise. The concierge are basically your private guest services. You never have to stand in line at guest services for anything. They even went down to the spa and put DH's name on the spin class list. We ordered photos in the lounge on their ipad and they picked them up and delivered them to our room so we didn't have to deal with the photo craziness the last night.

This whole website is a bad influence!!!
Yup, we have APs and now TIW living in Charlotte. We are addicted to CL (although the Waldorf Orlando was amazing) and concierge on DCL will spoil you forever.
