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.
Not only are bare feet not appropriate, shoes are required in the lounge. At the WL at Christmas, a guest went into the lounge with only socks on and one of the staff told them they must have shoes on. Unfortunately, this rule never seemed to be enforced at the CR's lounge in August. I saw too many PJs and stockinged feet. They wouldn't dress this way to go to McDonalds, but some CL lounges are another story.

I admit, I have yet to be in a CL lounge with a grown up wearing PJ's, but from what I read here it seems to happen alot. I totally agree that its not appropriate. Would you dress like that to go to the hotel food court/CS place? As I have said before, we are NOT one big happy family in the CL lounge!

The only thing I saw that really bothered me was our stay last year at BWI. A younger gentleman, who was clearly coming from the pool, came in bare feet, dripping wet swim trunks and hair (at least he had a shirt on) and came to drink a quick beer by the lounge TV and devour some appetizers. He was in and out in under 3 minutes but since it was about 5:30pm and most people there were dressed for dinner, it was quite interesting to see...

Since we're talking about dress codes......

I will probably have me kids bathed and in PJ's before Wishes since it is after their bedtime. I"m thinking of letting them watch from the lounge (we are at Poly CL) in their PJ's while grabbing a dessert. Would that be appropriate?

I see kids in PJ's all the time in the lounge especially if they are going to view the fireworks... I say no problem!

NO! Teasing. Of course kids in the jammies watching the fireworks sounds fine. Last year I was in a hotel for at least 75 nights. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen kids AND adults wearing the pjs at breakfast - club lounges and even in the hotel restaurants! No kidding. I don't understand it, and I think it looks awful. Usually they look like they just crawl out of bed and come to breakfast as if it is their own kitchen - most of the time they are wearing slippers and their hair isn't even brushed. Do they crawl back into bed with pj pants they just dragged through food under the breakfast tables (b/c of course they are always long and hanging down past their bunny slippers!? yuck I am so glad my parents taught me better than that and you sure won't see my kids coming to breakfast in their pjs at any hotel in America!

OK...I will get off my soap box now.

I don't have a problem with kids in PJs, but it does concern me (I've said this before) what perhaps other people might be thinking, and I don't mean pink fluffy thoughts either. Disney or not, one still has to be a little careful.

I don't know what kind of pj's your kids are wearing but the baggy tee shirts and lounge pants my 8 year old wears covers up more than the shorts and tank tops that she will be wearing in the parks

During my previous Club Level stays at the Contemporary, Boardwalk Inn and Polynesian it was only at the Contemporary where I happen to see little kids wearing their PJs in the lounge and personally that doesn't bother me. However it's the adults that shouldn't wear their PJ's in there, although I haven't yet to see anyone do that and hopefully I won't ever have to.

You'd be surprised. I work at Target and I've seen quite a few families come in wearing PJs. It's mostly kids, but I've seen some adults wear PJs. You wouldn't catch me wearing PJs in public.

Well, remember we ended up at the CR/Atrium Club at the same time last August and I saw those adults both during Wishes and breakfast wearing PJs and stockinged feet or slippers. And, unfortunately they weren't those cute Hanna Andersson-type matching PJs that you might wear for your Christmas photos!

Well since we never saw each other in the lounge despite our rooms being next door, I call it different timing in seeing that and not seeing that.

Oh gee. I might just have to take some pictures in the lounge next month.....kind of like those Wal-mart shopper photos we have all seen on the internet!

Is anyone else going to be around the CR between Apr 11 - 18th? I see a lot of people aare staying at the BW and Poly....haven't seen any other CR posters, have I?

I can't wait for our next trip!
