No need to wait. You should reach out to them with any requests that you have. Just be sure to include your reservation number so they can connect your request to the right reservation.

We will be at YC CL next month () and they have been very responsive to all of our requests and email.

I have already been won over by the Poly IPO and we haven't even made it there yet! We booked this trip only 30 days in advance so we had no chance in getting reservations at O'hana, Cali Grill or Chef Mickeys. We decided to ask any way and they told me that nothing was available, and we were totally fine with that. What I didn't expect was an email yesterday morning telling me that they were able to get me a reservation at O'hana and Chef Mickey's for the times I was looking for. This morning I had an email telling me that they booked us at Cali Grill as well! I never would have expected them to take the time to constantly check for cancellations!

My first club level stay has already impressed me!

My only reason for not booking Poly Club Conc.....

Is that I might not get a balcony or terrace, the possibility of getting one of those 2nd floor rooms is not good for me, but I do Love the Poly.

I have shellfish allergies. I thought I read somewhere one of these 2 put out alot of shellfish for the evening food? At both places are all the rooms all on the same floor as the lounge? Sorry so many questions.

Thanks so much
BC does not guarantee a full balcony (They have "Juliet" style ones, or standing balconies on many of their rooms) while all YC CL rooms have full balconies.

Both hotels have limited King beds - you're better off not checking in ahead of time and just asking when you get there if one is available (also add that to your request section on your reservation).

We have stayed at YC CL but not BC. There were mini crab cakes one evening as a snack selection, but not much else seafood-wise. Best bet is to tell the IPO you have an allergy and see if they have more info.

Most rooms are the same floor as the lounge, save for a few deluxe rooms and suites in each hotel.

HTH!

I made our YC concierge reservation last week for a stay in August and have already heard from the IPO, send them an e-mail with your requests and they're sure to get back to you

Can anyone just confirm for me that the CL balconies at the Wilderness Lodge are full balconies and not the narrow, standing only balconies? Thanks

They are full balconies, but enclosed..so you have to stand to look out. There is great CL info on the WL thread

pas130 is correct that they are all full balconies, however, only the 7th floor (CL) have the semi-solid balcony walls that you have to stand to see down below. But, since you're posting to the CL thread, I assume that's the floor you are asking about.

This is funny, because we have stayed CL 3 times and have never been greeted upon arrival. I didn't even know they did that!

At the YC, we arrived really late, so that may be why. But I can't explain BWI and Poly? Do they usually greet you at the ME? I think we may have been missing something!

Well, this thread has helped me to understand that CL resorts are not consistent with the services they offer. Not just between the different CL resorts, but w/in the same resort as well. I guess you can't rely on things happening as they should.

Hello Everyone! This is a great thread for Concierge questions, which I've got one..
I booked about a month ago at the Beach Club to stay in May. I haven't received an IPO email yet. I've already made ADR's, so the only request I wanted to make was if it was possible to have a room near the elevators. I've got age 60 something parents going on this trip and thought it would be convenient for them. Should I contact now to make that request or closer to the trip?
Thanks

ADR's

My ADR window opens up February 27th. It's been a few years since our last club level stay. Do I just send a list of where I want to eat with a day & time to the Concierge office?

Yes! When your booking window opens, they will handle the rest and email you with the ADRs. If you don't receive an email, simply email them and ask for a copy of your itinerary.

You can contact them anytime, so I suggest you contact them now.

Send them an email and they will add the request to your reservation.
