I started this thread because we too would like to stay CL on our trip in 9/09 and had no idea where to start. There is also a Concierge/Club Level info Thread.

DisneyChristmas (or anyone!) -- were you just at the Poly CL in December 08? Have they installed one of those espresso machines I saw in the AKL and (I think) CR lounge photos? Or is it just still the sad little Nescafe machines?

And has anyone tried the coffee from those espresso machines? Is it better? We'll be at the Poly CL in June and I would love some better coffee - that should have Kona in the lounge!

I'm not a coffee drinker - and I didn't notice. The CR 14th (and I believe the 12th too) have the new machines.

Sorry...

Anyone else???

Both the Atrium Club 12th floor and Tower Club 14th floor had the cappuccino machines. Anyway here is a picture of the one from the 12th floor.

Hi again...

DH who does drink coffee says that the Poly lounge still had the old machine in December. DH says that it's one step up from a coffee vending machine.

Here's some photos from the Polynesian lounge (some old, some new):

Entrance


Kids Sitting Area


Fruit Display


Drinks


Food Area




Beverage Area




My dinner! Turkey skewers, white rice (I added soy sauce), and pineapple with caramel. The hot offering (in this case, turkey and rice) changes nightly, but everything else is basically the same every night. There's plenty of other offerings too, such as mini pitas with hummus, vegetables, cheeses, and smuckers uncrustables. And because you can eat as much as you want, it's easy to have dinner here.


And to top off this post, the amazing view from Hawaii's lounge:

You pictures are fabulous!! I was trying to decide between Poly CL & AKL CL, and your pics have convinced me that the AKL is worth being a little further away! We stayed at AKL in April & LOVED it! We have never stayed CL, and I am very excited!! We had thought about trying Poly because of the monorail convenience...but theres A LOT of difference price wise & id rather spend that cash in the parks! Thanks for your help!

Here are some pictures of the YC and BC lounge. IMO, they're the 2 worst concierge lounges at WDW (although I can't comment on CSR). Unlike the 3 monorail concierges (which emphasize their wonderful settings and views), these 2 lounges are small and unpleasant. Also, the lounge views are horrible - why couldn't they make the lounges facing water?

Thanks for the pictures, makes me glad I changed to the BWI CL instead of the BC.

Also they have 24 hour fridge in the lounge that's always stocked with cans of Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite, so you could go in there at 1:00 AM to sit down and drink one.
Is this the case for all the Concierge Lounges (open 24 hours with soft drinks)? Specifically, SugarLoaf at GF?

Thanks Much

The Polynesian is like that also. They have 2 floors where you can sit, each with a TV. We stayed GF main building concierge 4 or 5 years ago and don't remember sodas out during the day.
One night my DD asked one the employees who was putting away the food for a soda and she said no. The lounge was suppose to be open for another 30 minutes too. I went and "asked" her for it.

The SL lounge is definitely open 24 hrs. It's the "lobby" of the SL building, and you walk through it every time you go to/from your room. Very convenient location, and there's no way for them to close it off.

I dont remember drinks being out 24/7, but then we mostly just drink water so I probably just didn't notice one way or the other.

The YC lounge is literally a "room" at the YC, with double doors. They closed the doors in between services and there was no way to get in to grab a drink or just find a place to sit once they closed the doors.

Does anyone know about BW CL? Do they close the doors between service or are they stay open? We are driving down and were planning on relaxing in the CL if our rooms were not ready when we got there. I know my DBF will not want to go to the parks right away after driving that long. Thanks!
