What room types (meaning bed configurations) are available in the theme park view concierge rooms? Are they all on near the lounge, or is it possible that we will end up a long hike away. Just trying to weigh the value (a very relative term, I know) of the upgrade from regular theme park view room to concierge.

My son was hoping for a bunk bed room, but I don't want to request that if that would put us farther away, or with a worse view.

By the way, what are the "worst" views you could end up with a standard concierge room, if we end up going that way? (Though I am SOOO loathe to give up my view.)

Also, what is the best (i.e. most likely to be successful; and I know it is just a request) way to put in a room request? Is it via the general reservations line, or calling the hotel directly?

Oh and, also wanted to ask what the lounge hours are? Is there 24-hour availability for soda and water?

And, lastly (for now anyway), do they do package delivery direct to your room, like they do for concierge level guests at DisneyWorld?

2 queens are the most common room configuration. 1 queen and bunk bed in available near the lounge, I had an excellent view of the pool and park from a 6th floor room above the entrance to Storytellers (VGC expansion now blocks much of the park view). 1 king is also available, but this is a rare room type and does not match your needs. 2 queens and daybed are only standard view, but they are located relatively near the lounge.

The best park views will not be the closest rooms to the concierge lounge. I prefer rooms with views of Paradise Pier, which will be quite far from the lounge. Hotel rooms part of the VGC expansion only go up to the 5th floor and can be quite noisy (although I like the festive park noise).

Not 24 hours, 6AM to 10PM (approximately). I have a visit in early September, and will check on the exact hours. You can grab a few extra drinks and keep them in the room

This is just a review of the villa view we had this weekend. We had the 2 bed villa #5518 which is the Tower of Terror, Bear rock formation & "woodsy playground" view. Although we could have had a pool view I thought my guests would like to try the partial park view but we were surprise to see turning to our left of the balcony a perfect view of Disneyland firework show! Wow so beautiful!! That was a true bonus for us! We knew we would not see WOC but thought to try a new experience with this view & so glad we did! It was NOT the BEST park view such as the grand villa (#4522) but surprisingly okay!

Thanks for the info. My DD and DSIL will be going and that's the villa I've requested for them. They didn't want the great park view so I was hoping this one would be a perfect fit, and it sounds like it is.

Getting the final details in place for our trip set for Sept 5th. I wanted to get a lego set that my husband has been wanting waiting for us in the room when we check in. I called and talked to Mounir to see if this was possible and he got in touch with the lego store, who doesn't deliver, and is going down on his own right now to pick it up and have it waiting in the room for us. So excited to stay at a place with this great of customer service before I even arrive!

I'm here now and they are 6:30 to 10. And they close promptly at 10 & are really trying to usher you out about 10 min before.

They have soda stocked in the fridge, little 12oz glass bottles so I'm sure you can't bring those in the park. The water bottles are just as small but you have to ask for those to be brought out as they aren't stocked with the soda.

I've been to the Poly concierge & found the items much more extensive & more variety each day than here. Although here they are REALLY good at keeping all the food offerings stocked.

Thanks for the update, boo on the info. We did do the upgrade, so I'll be anxious to hear your continuing thoughts on whether it's worthwhile. Especially as someone who, like us, has done the concierge level at Disney World as well. We've still got a month until our trip, so not too late to downgrade and save some money.

The alcohol you have to request a drink, it's not out for self serve. So quite honestly it's hard to say.

It's tough, overall not as impressed as I was at World. Breakfast is the same everyday - which is normal as there isn't too much variety for bfast - with muffins, croissants, bagels, sliced cheese, ham & some fruit. Cereal & instant oatmeal packets. Coffee with liquid flavorings like hazelnut, caramel & vanilla. Juice is cranberry & orange. Water & 2% milk. Chocolate milk you have to ask for & someone will bring it out.

Lunch is the same everyday. Tea sandwiches of cucumber, turkey, or salmon. Chocolate covered strawberries, tea cookies & scones. No juices out, just water & the stocked soda.

Dinner has been the same every night too. Veggie tray, cheese tray with crackers. Honestly the crackers suck IMO. Tasteless wafers really. Bread slices & seasoned pita bread wedges,. The hot appetizer has been either chicken or beef southwest rolls. They are just like taquitos. There is also a dipping sauce. Again, no juice, just water.

We made it once for the dessert at night because they do close at 10 and the parks have let off the fireworks at 9:30 & we missed one night by 2 minutes. 10:03 we got back & they already took everything away & locked the doors. The night we did make it we got there at 9:45 & no sooner sat down when we were reminded that we should be leaving soon & please grab what we want & try to leave so that tinker bell could sprinkle her dust & get it clean. There were the typical choc chip cookies - which we took the last 3 & they didn't bring out more, oatmeal raisin, & 2 other little desserts which escape me right now.

Alcohol is not out & you have to ask them for whatever beer or wine you may want. I don't know the variety or selection as I don't drink much & haven't asked for any.

Hope that gives you a good idea of what to expect.

I'm on points for this stay due to various factors & I wouldn't do this again unless my hand was forced - use points I mean.

I paid around 500 something for my stay at Poly concierge, and thought it was definitely worth it. Not sure what the price point is here, but I wouldn't pay much more than at the Poly & honestly IMO even that price is pushing it.

You can see the fireworks from the balcony & they do pipe in the music but your view is really another wing of the hotel with fireworks overhead, you can't see the park at all.

Hope that helps!
