You need to register with a photo sharing site like Photobucket, then load your pictures onto your account so you can post them.

Loved your review. We had the same issue in August at the Atrium Club. There were some PJ wearing families and some less than desirable food handling behavior by children. It seems every CL is susceptible to this phenomenon

Here's the link to the photo posting tutorial with a video:

You need to upload your photos to any photo sharing site, such as Photobucket, which is free. Copy the IMG code and then paste that into your post. It's really easy once you've done it.

This photo of the KKC lounge shows beer on the counter:




The photo is from the first page of the Poly thread.

That is where it used to be kept, but was moved off the counter to a place behind the service area, but in clear view of the guests. A CM is there to open the bottle and hand it to you.

There wasn't enough room for the large tub with ice and beer when the punch, food, and wine were in place. Things were being spilled or knocked over AND folks were taking more than 2 beers at a time was probably the biggest issue.

During "non-serving" times, the beer is in the back and guests need to request it from a CM.

Thanks for explaining this, Tess.

Well, why don't they just put all the beer in a fridge like at the CR, WL and YC? Are they the only lounge where you have to ask for a beer?

I am not 100% sure but I think they are. However already have that fridge where they put in cans of Coca Cola, Diet Coke and Sprite, so they could easily put their Beer bottles in there at 5:00 PM like they already do with the Contemporary fridge on the Atrium Club floor.

Sorry to say this, but I think it's a trend. We've seen the same things at every hotel that we've stayed at in the last few years at WDW.

OK...will this work? Thanks for the link and the message on what to do. I am not very good with all of this technology. haha

I do not feel comfortable uploading all of my pictures b/c of privacy issues. If anyone has a particular question and I have a picture of it, I will be happy to email you personally. These show some of the rooms and views from the balcony. I also included a picture of the coffee maker, since it WAS a k-cup machine and my husband could have his favorite coffee in the room each morning. That was something we tried to find out before we went on the trip, but no one could confirm what kind was actually in the room.

That works or you can post the actual photos by pasting the IMG code like this:




Just click-on the icon that looks like a yellow postcard to paste your image link into.

Interesting that you had the K-cups. I wish all rooms did!

However, we love the location of the Hawaii building, the views from there over the lagoon towards the castle, etc. And getting to watch the fireworks from our balcony while munching on dessert from the CL lounge was fantastic.

I like them both, but they are quite different.
I love hearing about all the club levels! So what kind of offerings do they have in the afternoon at the GF? I was recently at the BWI and in the afternoons there was also goldfish, cookies, nut mix, chocolate covered pretzels, gummy worms, and chips.

The refrigerator they use at the Polynesian is a larger type and it is fully stocked with sodas.

If they put beer into the refrigerator currently in place, I can see the bottles falling every which way and ending up outside the refrigerator onto the tile floor. It would not be pretty. Then there is the issue of controlling guest consumption based upon quantity (limit of 2 per adult) AND age. The location of the refrigerator is on a corner which leads directly to the exit on first floor and third (which has two exits). It would be tough to monitor during the busy serving hours.

I believe the other CLs, like those you mentioned, have the type that have a lip or raised front edge and dividers that allow for bottle storage. The one at the Polynesian is simply an open shelf type refrigerator. There are no dividers and the cans are freestanding on the shelves.

Here is a picture of the fridge from the Atrium Club floor at the Contemporary and you can see it has both bottles of Beer and cans of Soda inside. So do you think the Polynesian can get a fridge like that or update the one they currently have to put Beer in there?

A few days before I took the exact same picture you did without the logo on the fridge, however when they added it on I deleted it and took the one I posted. So it must have been done after you checked out because I am sure you would have done the exact same thing.

Hmmm .... I wonder if part of the reason the Polynesian doesn't put it in the fridge is because the 'staff' is not always there to watch who is getting it. What's to prevent 'underage' kids from grabbing a beer? At the CR the concierge staff is close by most of the time, I think? But sometimes there isn't anyone around in the lounge at the Polynesian -- especially in the afternoons. The staff is either in the back in the kitchen area .... or downstairs checking guests in.
