What did you think of the lounge and the Cast Members working up there?

The CMs were absolutely wonderful! They were very helpful when I needed their help, didn't mind all the questions I asked and the lounge was clean and had a variety of snacks and foods and drinks! I loved one of the wines they had out. I took a picture of the label so I could buy it in the future. I would highly recommend CR CL for those who would utilize it!

Hannah, you're back and I'm gone. We're on a short trip for our 24th anniversary and DH is napping and DD and I are surfing

Have you posted about your trip elsewhere? I want all the details! Why didn't you eat breakfast in the lounge? We missed you

WHEN DID YOU LEAVE!? I hope you are having fun!

I haven't posted a TR yet. I'm resizing my pictures and going through them so I can post them as I type up my TR. I should have the first post up later tonight or tomorrow after work. I did have breakfast a couple of days, but I wasn't hungry for the most part. And the birthday pin is amazing! It created a ton of pixie dust!

I have just started to read thru this thread and was wondering, when you do CL, do any of you also get refillable mugs?

We do not, because the mugs are only good at the resort and they only include soda and coffee. All of that is available in the lounge.

We are able to get soda and coffee all day in the lounge? I thought it was only at certain times of the day

It's available in the lounge from 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM.

However let's say you like to drink Barqs Root Beer it might be available at the counter service location and not in the lounge. I mentioned that because when staying Club Level at the Contemporary, Boardwalk Inn and Polynesian, that's one drink that wasn't available in their lounges. However the Contempo Cafe and Captian Cook's had it available at their drink machines if you purchased the mug.

At AKL there is a coffee maker that does single servings, so it is there for guests to use whenever the lounge is open.
We typically make coffee in the room every morning, but DH said he isn't sure we will this year. *I* will tell you YES, we WILL make coffee in the room every day!

Online Check-in: Worth it or Not?

Is it worth it to do the online check-in if you are staying CL? I've never done it before and checking in at CL has always been sooo easy, I just didn't know if it helped in any way. Thanks for any advice.
