The restaurant manager can always give a table to someone if they need to. Rather you're a VIP, or just someone they feel like helping, it's totally in their control. CL CMs are quite used to calling restaurants to request tables for VIPs and believe me they will find room. Also we had a trip a few years ago when someone had deleted all our ADRs and the restaurant manager at Mama Melrose worked us in and also called her friends at our other deleted restaurants and worked us in for those as well.

But we did see animals and it was really nice.

The staff is what made it so special. We were there for our anniversary and they sent a gift to the room. One CM always went above and beyond and that was Chris. We chatted with him a lot. He would see me and ask me right away if I wanted a Tusker, it is the African beer that I fell in love with, even if it was not out and he would go and grab one. All the staff was very friendly and helpful but he was awesome.

We can not wait to go back and are actually thinking about adding on so we can do CL every trip!!!

Thank you for sharing!

I see you'll be there soon! Post here when you get back--I'll be interested to hear your review of CL at AKL. We are staying CL for the first time in May

Boardwalk Inn Deluxe Rooms are sold out for our dates in August

Just for fun I was checking the WDW website under the special offer for the room only discount from August 14th - October 1st and their rack rates. Well under both reservations the Deluxe Rooms at the Boardwalk Inn are sold out for the dates my family and I will be there which is from August 17th - August 31st. So after seeing that it's a very good thing we got that room as soon as that discount was announced. Although the fact they only have 10 total Deluxe Rooms is a major reason why, so it goes to show you that if you are thinking about reserving one then do that right away.

I am looking at the exact same dates-or maybe 8/18 to 9/1. I was going to call today to book it but got too crazy busy. We'll just do a standard room. I think the deluxe room was open for the 2nd week.

I also checked other resorts with that discount-nothing at all at CR.

And I also checked my May rates and no deluxe CL BWI rooms for those dates either.

There were cottage units for both May & August. How many of those are there? Those are also more expensive and I think only sleep 4.

I am not exactly sure how many total Garden Suites there are. I can picture them in my mind because they all go down in a row, so it might be around the same or just a bit more total then the Deluxe Rooms.

Originally for our reservation in December 2010 we reserved the Garden Suites. However after getting a tour of one of those rooms we didn't like it because of the set up and actually getting to the Innkeepers Club lounge. So we then changed to the Standard Club Level Room.

Can anyone tell me if this email address for Boardwalk ipo is correct -
Boardwalk.Itinerary.Planning@disneyworld.com - I took it from page 1 of this thread, so recent at least.

We check in at BWI in less than 2 weeks and I haven't heard anything from them at all. I sent an email yesterday w/ our reservation # in the title field, letting them know when we are arriving and asking a couple of questions. It hasn't been 24 hours yet, but any time I have sent an email to Poly ipo I have received an automated reply that someone would get back to me soon. So thought I would check.

Thanks!!

p.s. Can't wait for our first stay at BWI - first time staying in an Epcot resort too! From the love I'm reading on the boards, it should be a good one

That is the correct email. Check your spam folder for the autoreply and/or response. Mine showed up there the first couple of times until I added them to my contact list.

They were always VERY responsive to us in the past. Good luck!

Today is my 180 days for ADRs. The Poly IPO has my restaurant requests. (I called 2 days ago just to be sure!)
It's 8:30 a.m. Fla time. What time should I be getting my all-important e-mail with my confirmation numbers? I'm almost sure that last year, my confirmation e-mail came fairly early in the morning. I'm just a little nervous!

It really depends on how many they have to do today. Don't be nervous- just because you don't have the form doesn't mean they aren't made! They still need to input the names/confirms onto their form to send to you.

Give them a few hours before you inquire.

Thanks. I checked and that wasn't it, but I hadn't thought of that.

Since I had the correct email, I will just assume they are busy and will get back to me soon. None of it was urgent

Yacht Club IPO made our ADRs yesterday. I had an email with my confirmation nos. by 6:45 AM. Only 2 of us, but got everything either exacly the time I requested or within 20 mins. Don't know what restaurants or how many you have, but just for fun I have been checking places on line. There seems to be lots of availibility. If you have something really important, try to make it yourself now. You can always cancel the duplicate if they got it for you. I know, that kind of defeats the purpose of using IPO, but at least you will know you got the important one.
