Great job on the new thread. The resort by resort layout will make it much easier for people to get a handle on "the basics" of CL.

Thank you for the new thread. It helps answer a lot of questions right away that get asked a lot and then the answers are "lost" within the thread. Thank you!

I am starting to go into Type A panic mode. IPO has our list and reservations are supposed to be made on Monday (our first night is room only). I've been hearing of people making their ADR's at 3am the last couple of days. I'm starting to wonder if they live on the west coast or if we can really make ADR's in the middle of the night like that? I need to calm down a bit, I think.

Again, thanks to everyone for your kind words!

If anyone has any information or pictures they think would be helpful to put on page 1 (some of the resorts, like YC/BC & BWI, could certainly use some more info!), please feel free to send me a PM and I will be happy to add it.

It's a West Coast thing. I used to have to wake up and call central dining at 4am PT to get what we wanted. Now that we're using the IPO office, I get to sleep in and don't have to be on hold forever. Don't worry -- they do a great job of getting what you want.

Thanks for calming me down a bit. I think that next time I won't book our ressie 11 months out. It gives me too much time to obsess about it, lol.

Monday morning couldn't come fast enough!

We stayed last month concierge at AKL. What is the correct name for those pastries with the chocolate chips. They were my favorite? Does anybody know if they have those in the concierge lounges at Poly or WL?
Thanks!

Jen, Like you I am a type A Disney Planner. On the last trip in Aug. I finally relaxed enough to send my list to the IPO and let them do all the work. On the first day (Monday) I received and e-mail at about 10 am and they had gotten all my Adrs and booked two tours I requested. They even managed to book the Breathless boat for the Illumination cruise and that reservation is near impossible to get when you try to do it yourself. Several time in the next few weeks I would call to add a few more things and they always got what I wanted. I so glad I this time that I could relax and let them doo all the work. Hope this helps ease your mind.

Chocolate croissants and sadly they don't have them at the Poly. I LOVE the Poly and enjoyed the evening service more than AKL but was disappointed in the morning service. They had bagels, plain croissants, and cinnamon rolls (those were very good). They had a bowl of mix fruit, apples, bananas, oranges, and cereal. You had to ask for chocolate milk and yogurt.

That was our experience as well. While we liked the Poly CL in general, we were very disappointed when comparing their breakfast to the one at AKL (it was a split stay, so it was hard not to compare them). Poly doesn't have the yummy chocolate croissants, the great espresso machine, or the hot cereals that are offered at AKL.
