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!
Are you not allowed to go on the Safari if your under 3? We will also be w/ our DD who is just shy of 3 and our 1 yo DD. We had all planned on doing this.

I always find it easier just to ask for a couple of extra in the evening and put them in my own room fridge, but they are available during the day--just ask the nice Innkeepers!

Is this your first stay at BWI/CL? If so, you are in for a treat.

Have a great trip!

And yet ANOTHER dis-er to be jealous of! The BWI/CL people are coming from everywhere!

mmom2travel, hope you have a terrific time next week. Staying at an EPCOT resort is truly a whole new world to explore! And I can't say enough good things about BWI.

Yes, first stay here. We stayed at POLY/CL last summer and it was awesome, although some of the CMs were a little less friendly than I would have liked (seemed inconvenienced by we mere guests at times). Everyone there was asking for beers and wine all day long and that is where I noticed that the CMs being a little grumpy. I just wondered if maybe it wasn't really encouraged to ask for drinks other than during the evening appetizers. Don't get me wrong, we aren't going to get drunk everyday, but if I want to have a drink, I just want to know what to expect as far as asking for them. Thanks.

Don't worry about that with the BWI lounge CM's- they are FANTASTIC!!

Hi. We are 6 weeks away from our triple split stay 5 nights HRH/ 5 nights Poly LV CL and 5 nights YC GV CL. We are also booked 5 nights in Oct in a BWI dxcl room. We have grade school aged children so we will spend a lot of time at the pool. From what I understand the Poly CL is very close to the pool and its easy to run over there and get drinks and snacks. What about YC and BWI. How far is the cl from the pool? Do they have plastic cups for beer and wine, and to go containers for snacks? I'm guessing no bottles are allowed at the pool. Is there a dress code in the lounge? Can you run in there in a bathing suit cover up or workout clothes and grab something? I have never stayed CL in my life. Any tips or info would be helpful. Thanks.

Can't help with the Poly or YC CL (yet ) but BWI CL lounge is nowhere near anything (sorry, but that is my one tiny complaint about BWI). It is quite a hike from the elevator and definitely not convenient for running up to from the pool.

On our pool day, we grabbed a paper cup to put a beer in and used a couple of same cups to fill with the wonderful homemade potato chips and goldfish crackers to snack on.

As for dress code etiquette in the lounge, I will let others chime in. I don't mind a swim cover up, but bare feet, IMHO, are NOT appropriate.

Bummer, we check out on Wed. I came close to meeting some dis'ers at Poly CL last Sept but have never ended up crossing paths with anyone. Maybe we don't really exist!

We'll be the mom and daughter in relaxed mode if anyone else is hanging around the Innkeepers club early next week

The 2 times I did Sunrise Safari it was already past 9am when we got off the safari ride and headed to breakfast. Many folks stop to go the rest room before heading into the dining room and they wait until all folks are there (or at least most) until the chef comes out to explain what everything is. I could look at my photos at home to see what the time stamp is for when we came out of breakast but I would guess no earlier than 9:30.

Wish I could escape this! Can't wait for May!!! I'll be 9 between trips. I haven't gone that long in over 6 years-I'm starting to get the shakes from withdrawal. I've already booked my family August trip so I won't feel too guilty in May leaving the kids at home.

I don't know about you, but I am so tired of seeing people show up for breakfast in CL lounges (all over the country, not just at Disney!) wearing their pjs/robes/bunny slippers! Really. Can't people get dressed first? It shows that some people have money, just no manners.

As for running in to grab a drink for a minute, a bathing suit cover up or workout clothes would be OK. Like you said though, no bare feet. Ick!
