Forgot to mention I asked BWI IPO last week if they have anything special for CL guests now and she said no.

Oh man. I think I better bring my pump! Between scraping the rum laden innards of my Lapu Lapu pineapple and some evening bubbly I may need to keep some extra supply in the fridge!

Hi! The YC club level is on the 5th floor. The lounge is just outside the main elevator bank. To get to the pool you would go down to the first floor & either walk thru the lobby& walk past the Captain's Grill. There is a door near the elevators, too, so you could walk outside if you didn't want to go thru the lobby. The closest entrance to the pool is on the far side of the YC, near the Yachtman's Steakhouse entrance.

It isn't very convenient to run back to the lounge for drinks or snacks. They do have styrofoam to go cups with lids. I think I remember small styrofoam bowls that you could put snacks in, too, but no covers for those.

We use a Cuisinart 700 single serve series at home that accepts the K cups. Would love to bring along DHs favorites if they have that kind of machine.

Thanks!

In exactly 14 days from right now, we will be landing in Orlando!!


The Tower Club uses the exact same one as the Atrium Club and here is a picture of it.

The machine only takes pods, if you want regular Coffee then you need to use the one next to it.

It's a Nespresso machine (made by Nestle). It's their version of a Keurig-like machine: using proprietary pods of real coffee. Although, unlike Keurig, Nespresso machines only make espresso (or cappuccino if you get a frother and do it the "old fashioned way") The one in the picture is the commercial/office type; we've got a retail one at home -- both use different types of pods. Only know this because my hubster can't bring any of the pods from his work home for use in our machine.

14 days... so close! Have an excellent trip!

This is what I took it as. Just like park tickets kids under 3 are free. I'm going to be emailing IPO to book it w/ all 5 of us. so we shall see. I don't see why they couldn't go if it's really just the safari ride in more detail.

OK...that helps. I think he prefers regular cups of coffee and will use the one beside it to get a cup. Wish I could order Starbuck's pods for the Nespresso machine. He would be soooooooo happy!

Thanks!

I am sure it's fine for kids to wear their PJs for fireworks. My kids will be dressed, I save the PJs for in the room but that's just me. As for at Target, that makes me crazy! My MIL and BIL work and Target they tell me some storiesI love Target!

clemsondisneyfan Have a great trip! I'll be looking for your CR trip report, we might be staying there next year

Hi everyone - have a quick question and apologize if it's mentioned earlier on this thread and I didn't catch it.

We are staying POLY CL later this summer!!! It will be our first time staying CL so I'm reading up on all things CL. Along the lines of the PJ's in the lounge, I'm wondering if it's appropriate to grab some munchies and take them back to your room / outside - or do most people eat in the lounge?

I don't want to be one of "THOSE" families if this is not common. I have no issue bringing everyone, but sometimes - in the morning especially - it would be more efficient (we are traveling with 2 little ones and Gma) if we sent one person to get snacks while the others get ready - or got a "to go" bag on our way to the park.

Your etiquette experience is appreciated! Can't wait to experience Hawaii

Hi! I haven't stayed at Poly, but we've stayed at YC many times. It is fine to take fod & drinks back to your room, lots of people do. The YC lounge is kind of small. It is sometimes hard to find a seat there so going back to eat in the room is a must. Enjoy your trip!

Should I email IPO now or should I wait? I'm really hoping for a non-club level room and I don't want to email them now if I happen to get a non-club level room in the next few weeks.

During our previous Club Level stays at the Contemporary, Boardwalk Inn and Polynesian, there have been times when we taken food back from the lounge to eat in our room.
