Concierge sent us an email saying that we've booked but they haven't heard from us. Hubby talked to them about helping with a few times on our ADRs. Hopefully they can help.

So glad I found this thread, we wouldn't have known to ask!

I have always given the time I want, but then stated my preference after each ADR for alternates (ie: earlier rather than later, no later than 7pm etc) IPO has always gotten us everything we wanted within 15 minutes (including Le Cellier and CRT).

Thanks! That's good to know.
I have a question for anyone that done the sunrise safari thru AKL CL. Only DH & older DS will be doing this (my younger DS will be 2 mos shy of 3). So DS (2) & I plan on meeting up w/them at AK. Can anyone tell me about how long it lasts & when they would finish by? I want to get an idea of when we would be able to meet up w/them.
Thanks!

We were on it last October and ours was 1 hour and 45 minutes, we left before others from breakfast so it could take longer or shorter depending on speed of breakfast.

Did it take that long from 7:30 am when you meet at CL or from when you arrive at AK? About what time were you done, by 9:30 am or more like 10 am?

Question Boardwalk Innkeepers

My question is regarding the availability of adult beverages throughout the day in the lounge. I was thinking it would be nice to enjoy a beer mid-afternoon on a break from the parks, and just wondered if they are available all day, or only for the evening appetizer meal period. Thanks in advance for your response.

to the DIS and the CL thread!

While I haven't stayed at BWI, alcoholic beverages are put out in all CL lounges at 5:00. If you would like any before that time, all you have to do is ask and they will get you some. You can also store them in your room's fridge.

We grabbed a couple our first evening there to store in our room fridge.

When do you hear from IPO? (is that it?) I have never stayed club level before and this is only my second trip so I am all sorts of confused. I switched from BWI Water View to CR Atrium Club Level yesterday if that helps.

We're staying at Poly in CL and going through a travel agent. The travel agent has said they will make ADRs for us, but I am totally Type A and wanted to do it myself to make sure it gets done on time and we get our requested times.

Does anyone know if the concierge has a more direct way of doing ADRs, and would it be worth contacting them?

If you don't get an e-mail from them within a couple of days then you should e-mail them yourself. Include your confirmation number and days you will be staying there, so that way they can help you with whatever you need.
