I would see if I could book the Atrium Club at the CR, if I didn't need a suite.

Question for all of you who were booked on the Tower Club floor at the CR:

When you were told that you have to change, were you offered an alternative? What are they doing about any potential cost difference? If you didn't book a suite on the 14th floor, have they offered the Atrium Club to you?

Just curious - thanks!

we are 79 days out. They said the renovations were supposed to be done but now are going to Nov.. The only thing they offered was a switch in resort (which was GF or Poly)

But were you booked in a suite on the Tower Club level? Did they only offer a room of comparable size at the GF or Poly? I thought maybe they would upgrade you for your inconvenience so that's why I'm asking.

no, not a suite, just a regular room. I was kinda thinking she was going to offer us a suite or something, not that we need it, but just because we have been planning this for quite some time to have it changed when its close (to us).
She offered the GF main bldg. theme park view
or
Poly theme park view.

I didn't do a cost analysis to see if these are even comparable to what we have booked.
I was so dumbfounded, I told her the CR was a dream stay and I would have to call her back.

Take GF RPC theme park view! It is spectacular!

Well, if it wasn't a suite then why can't you stay on the 12th floor Atrium Club level at the CR? I would ask for that since you really want the CR, but I'm assuming it's all booked.

The RPC (Royal Palm Club) is the "main bldg." at the GF. With the Poly you might not get a balcony since the second floors don't have them. With the RPC you're in the same bldg. as the restaurants and monorail. Are there amenities that are important to you?

Can you see Wishes from the GF? I mean really see them? A balcony would be nice. We are doing the pirate cruise and spa from the GF so in a way that makes sense to stay there. I just don't know much about the CL anywhere but the CR (and the WL because we stayed there last year).

I just looked at our ressie, it was MK View Atrium club level at the CR.

Yes, you can see Wishes from a TPV room at the GF (not as impressive as the view from the CR, but a very nice one at that). I will admit that I have never stayed CL at the CR, but I have stayed RPC and it was our favorite stay at WDW. The food offerings are great, the lounge staff is wonderful etc.

I was booked Atrium Club, not Tower Club, and I'm still having to move. They offered me a regular TPV room at the CR; a club level, TPV room in the main building at GF; or a club level room at the Poly. We chose the GF, and I already have my confirmation. No extra cost.

Hello CL fans!

I've been staying in WDW resorts since childhood, but have only stayed CL once (BC deluxe CL in February.) We have three boys (ages pre-school to pre-teen) and I didn't realize the value of CL until we experienced it.

We booked two pre-cruise nights (BWI) and one post-cruise night (BC GV CL) in August. We spent one night at AKL on our way to the airport last weekend and the bounceback offer prompted us to change our BWI stay to CL too!

So I read through all the pages of this great thread and have a few questions about BWI CL!

1) It looks like all the BWI standard CL rooms are on the 4th floor and they all have balconies. Is that correct?

2) I don't have any requests on our reservation because I usually don't make many requests (although I sometimes request a full balcony at BC.) I honestly don't know what I would prefer at BWI - a view of Epcot sounds great, a view of the Boardwalk sounds great, too! But it sounds like "away from ESPN club" would be a good request to make - or should I word that differently?

3) In the BC lounge, they have a little TV area for the kids with small chairs. That TV was set to the Disney channel and the other TV was set to non-kid programming. From the video and photos, it looks like the BWI lounge is set up differently - is that correct?

Also, just a few BC CL comments in response to the earlier questions:

1) We really loved BC CL and had great experiences with low crowd levels (we were in the lounge at 7am for breakfast and for the 5-7pm snacks), other guests (the kids were great and everyone did a nice job of sharing in the childrens' area) and CMs. Bret and Neil were particularly wonderful and we wrote to guest services about them (and the outstanding BC greeter, Teena, of course!)

2) I entirely agree with MickeyT about the table-clearing situation in the BC lounge. We always tried to find a CM to give our dishes to - just didn't want to leave them on the table.

3) Regarding the refill mugs, I tried to go without my refill mug for our 7-day BC CL stay in February, but I only lasted one day. I use the mug at home every day, so I'm just used to having it in my hand. So I bought one and filled it with coffee in the lounge. It was also VERY useful at SAB for the refills at Hurricane Hanna's. I plan to buy another at BWI and fill it in either the lounge or down near the pool!
