Yes, you can always access the lounge, but the only thing available outside normal hours is the refrigerator with the soda in it (and maybe some water on the counter? I can't remember).

On a whim I called this morning at I was able to get the TPV room!!!! Now I am not changing my room at all again! I just pray for that they will come out with AP rates and we can change to that so we can save a little more money.

We keep trying for GV CL, but its really difficult. Now I wish I would have just booked the Lagoon view.

She said something like CL usually aren't available with pins, but since TMK view and LV were available, it makes me wonder.

I had booked GV CL with the 40% off pin (have no idea which since I never saw, they said I had one when I called and begged ). Once AP rates were released I was able to call and switch from the 40% off pin to the 42% off AP rate. So sometimes they do have the rooms, guess it's a matter of luck and availability.

Yes, but they don't re-stock after 10pm or so, so whatever is left in the fridge is it until morning. We were told to help ourselves to whatever drinks we wished and to go ahead and take them back to our room fridge. If you're counting on that soda whenever you want it, just grab a 2-3 at a time and do the same.

Well I was gone for two days and look what happened! The new thread looks great Guitarob and I love the new pictures from some recent trips. If it was possible to get MORE excited about our trip, I think some of those pictures did it!
