We are staying at the BWI CL in a deluxe room this December. This is our second stay at the Boardwalk, but our first ever CL stay on property. We chose a deluxe room as our party consists of 5 adults and felt we would need the extra room.

I am going to be emailing in our room request soon and was wondering if there are any deluxe rooms that happen to be corner rooms? We had a wonderful standard room last December that was on a corner, and was so much larger than a regular room. I'm guessing its a long shot, but you never know if you don't ask! Like I said.. we're a party of 5 adults and we're family.. so the more breathing room we have to preserve our sanity the better!!

Thanks again for this great thread!
I don't think they have any located in the corner. No matter if your on the 3rd or 4th floor their Deluxe Rooms come with a view of the Boardwalk/Cressent Lake and they have their own balconies. Well in this picture I can tell you some of their Deluxe Rooms are located over the Boardwalk Bakery and Seashore Sweets, which both have their own set of balconies. However when you look at the rooms above the arcade sign they don't have their own balcony and it's like that when you keep walking towards the ESPN Club, so that means those are not any of their Deluxe Rooms.

Thanks! I was not aware that the deluxe rooms had separate balconies. Any recommendations for a room request?

Well the rooms on the 3rd floor have bigger balconies, however if you stay on the 4th floor you will be a lot closer to the lounge. Now in August 2010 we had a Deluxe Room on the 3rd floor which was room #3229 and it was very close to the stairs that go up to the 4th floor. So what do you think is more important, a bigger balcony or being close to the lounge?

For our Deluxe Room reservation this coming August we requested a 4th floor room so we can be closer to the lounge, however if we got a room on the 3rd floor that won't be a problem.

Just booked 4 CL rooms at the BWI for Nov. 16-22. My husband and I are taking our 3 children and their families. We will be celebrating my youngest daughter being in remission from breast cancer!!! Suzy was only 31 when diagnosed last September. She fought the disease with determination and we are all so proud of her. When we asked what she wanted to do to celebrate, she said she wanted everyone to go to WDW.

She has been living in England for the past 6 years and will be moving to Alaska in July. Her husband in in the Air Force. How could I refuse, so it is family celebration time for us!! We will also be celebrating 2 of my grandchildrens' birthdays. Madyson's is the 18th, same as Mickey's, and Jackson's is the 12th. Cannot wait.

Maybe you should go down a few days early just to get everything all settled-I'll be there 11/10 to 11/15.

When we were there 2 years ago they had Grand Marnier; a premixed fruity drink that has orange-guava-passion fruit juice, pinapple juice, rose wine, grand marnier, and a few other things (sooo tasty); and I think Kahlua & Amarula (which is similar to Bailey's, and possible one other thing. But none of your typical "call" liquors to make mixed drinks with.
I'm sure someone has been there since me and can provide updated info on offerings.

I'm Sarah and we are visitng WDW from the UK for three weeks on August 11th this year. This whole trip is full of surprises.

My children have no idea whatsoever of our trip and we will be surprising them just before we leave for the airport. I cannot wait to do this, although I know I will cry

We arrive and are staying for three nights at AK Kidani, then four nights CL at AK, followed by two weeks at our fave resort POR.

The day we arrive at POR will be awesome as my Nan and Grandpa are flying (for the first time to the States) to WDW and surprising the children at POR and spending the final two weeks with us. They are just going to get off the Magical Express and we will just happen to be in the lobby where the children will spot their Nan and Gramps! Can't wait for them to experience what WDW will be like.

Now back to our club level part! We have never stayed CL, but I managed to bag a 40% code that was applied to our booking. Up until our POR stay we have no Park tickets so are just going to be relaxing and adjusting to the jet lag we experience from the UK. Therefore we will be able to make use of the fantastic facilities AK and CL has to offer.

So far dealt with Don who has been great. Looking forward to speaking to you over the 66 days before we go!

Sarah
You will LOVE AKL CL! I have stayed there twice and really enjoyed it. One of the things I really loved was doing the Sunrise Safari. This however requires park admission. Did you know you can pick up your package tickets 3 days early? This might let you do the Sunrise Safari if you were thinking about trying it.

Here's the info from the ticket sticky on the theme park board:
Quote:
Picking up Package Tickets Prior To Start Of Package

In cases where Walt Disney World Resort Guests would like to begin using their Package Tickets prior to the day of check-in (up to three days in advance), the Guests will be directed to visit any Theme Park or DTD Guest Relations location and request Early Ticket Pick-Up. (Note this cannot be done at a water park.)

It is only valid for people with packages at a Walt Disney World owned and operated Resort. You can be staying off-property at the time you pick up the tickets. Note that if you have a package which includes Dining, although you can pick up your tickets early you cannot get access to the Dining until you have actually checked in to your Resort.

There is a possibility that if your package and the stay prior to the package are at the same Resort that you will be able to get the tickets at the Resort and not have to go to a Park Guest Relations Office.

And the tickets issued will be valid for the entire stay; they will not receive valid tickets when they actually check-in to their resort. There is a strong possibility that the tickets you have received prior to check-in cannot be added to your KTTW on or after check-in.

Why, yes! They are famous for their Lapu Lapu which contains Myer's rum, Bacardi 151, orange juice, sour mix, served in a fresh cut pineapple. BTW, to save a few bucks, refills are available without the pineapple and bring a spork with you to scrape the inside of the pineapple

Wow, this is a wonderful plan. There are going to be a lot of celebrations attached to your reservation. I wish your daughter all the best. (My DH is retired from the Air Force.)

Although delicious and awesome the famous Lapu Lapu is not available as part of the CL offerings, you have to purchase it at one of the bars.

Kerry-What a way to celebrate. The lounge and the staff won't be the same after you all leave. As always I know you and the family will have a wonderful time staying in all of our favorite resort and with all the special cast.
