Great - thanks! I feel better knowing this is a pretty common thing to do!!

Our 200 day mark will be here in a few days. I plan on sending IPO an e-mail a few days after. My question is, what exactly should the e-mail say? Should it just be an introduction type thing? What more (or less) should be said? We don't have too much to ask of them right now, but I am sure that will change.

We got an email and we filled out the questions they asked us - what time is our arrival, would we like any reservations made, etc.

They have really been great about answering our emails, and we got every dinner reservation we needed. We have Le Cellier, Shula's, California Grill (2 nights), etc. We will be there 10 nights and have 8 dinner reservations - and they are at the times we requested.

You are going to love your CL stay! Have fun!

Leaving in only 9 days!!!!


3 nights at the Swan
7 nights at the Contemporary

If they don't email you close to the 180-day mark, send an email a few days prior with your reservation number and your dates and they should reply with the form that clemsondisneyfan mentioned.

HELP!

AKL IPO sent me an email that contained a link to form to fill out approx a month ago. I go to find it in my inbox today and it's not there. Does anyone have access to this link or form?? I know it's very detailed and since we are traveling with another group it will help us out immensely.

I called IPO and they said that email/form doesn't originate from them so they couldn't help with the form.

Another thing, we are doing a split stay with our first 2 nts at AK CL. I asked about booking at 180+10. The CM in IPO said she could only book our dining at for the 2 nts we are there, nothing else past that that point. I know my 3 hotel reservations are considered separate reservations...however, I've heard that others have been able to book 180+10?

TIA

EDIT: I found the form. It was sent from Disney Destinations instead of AKL IPO which threw me off since my Poly form came from Poly IPO.

Anyways, now I need to figure out the dining since my 180 is tomorrow.

If you provide the IPO with your departing flight details, do they do the check-in for you? i.e., take your bags and give you boarding passes. Last time, non-CL, I just called and had them pick up my bags, then they drove the bags and myself down to the little desk outside and I got my boarding passes.

Thanks muchly, pros!

If your dining window opens tomorrow I highly recommend you contact IPO with your ADRs directly in addition to the form. My AKV-CL info came with a link to fill out the info and I did it the night before my 180 day mark, I needed one additional ADR so I emailed them to add it. The next day IPO responded that they were able to make that ressie but that they wouldn't receive my form until 7p that evening so I sent them my ADRs and they did them right away. I still got everything I wanted pretty much at the times I wanted too.

Best of luck to you!!

I would love to, but unfortunately I can't because I'm doing a split stay for 11 nights; 2-AKL CL, 7-CSR, 2-Poly CL and the lady in AKL IPO told me she would only make my adr's for the first 2 nts I am staying there, not for anything past that.

I know I can make my 180+10 online no problem...just figured it would've been nice to have them take care of it all.

Have you contacted the Poly IPO? I would contact them and ask for advice about your ADRs. They might offer to make all your ADRs. Good luck!

Our upcoming trip will be our first CL stay. I've been reading this thread & the WL thread. Some people say for CL to still do online check-in, others say it's best NOT to do it if staying on CL. So, does it really make a difference? If so, which is better? Thank you!

During our Club Level stays at the Contemporary and Boardwalk Inn since online check-in had started we never used it because we always checked-in at the Club Level lounge of our resort.

Based upon reports of others, if you opt for online check-in, you will not have the private check-in at the CL. You will, instead, pick up your documents at the regular online check-in queue in the main lobby of your resort. I would opt for the personal service and private check-in for which you have paid in booking CL.

While the majority of our stays are at the BWI, I have done on line check in and have still had the private checkin. It really isn't necessary, but sometimes it makes the trip seem closer!!!! You just don't go to the online checkin desk. Let bell services know you are a CL guest and you will be taken to private checkin.

I guess I should have clarified, others have had to follow the procedure I set forth when staying at the Polynesian. We have not opted for online check-in based upon that information. It looks as if amandaw is staying at WL--should have looked at her signature before answering.
