Staying club level in Aug. Do I need a grocery stop on the way from airport or is the food in the club sufficient? Has anyone picked up additional food or wished they had?

others might not agree with me but i don't think the food offerings is a substitute for a meal.
i guess it depends if you are the type that want a full meal or just snacking to tied you over until you have a meal.


breakfast offerings in the lounge might be fine for your family as it has cereal, pastries, muffins, fruit, etc.


the snacks in the daytime are usually snack type items such as chips, pretzels, etc. (crustables i did see one year)
water, soda, coffee and tea are available when club lounge is open.


the first evening offering is good but not a meal.
kind of a light meal.
usually a hot item, cheeses, fruit, couple of salad dishes, etc.

the sweet hour is really good but i rarely am back at the hotel for that time period.

all of the offerings are really very good but nothing that i would consider that would take the place of a meal.



when i use the club lounge, i do a grocery stop for snack items.
i don't buy water or soda as i get that in the lounge.
i do buy snacks such as pbutter and cheese crackers, cracker jack, beef jerky and twix bars.

I booked Club Level on my last stay and had myself (very picky eater), my g/f (vegan), her daughter and husband, and their two year old. I think a trip to the store is completely unnecessary. I was blown away at the offerings they had available. The breakfast options alone blow away any "continental breakfast" other hotels I have been at and also perfect to "grab and go" if you want to take stuff with you to the park. I had to cancel planned meals at the Hard Rock Cafe and Margarittaville because we had too many other options available.

We probably got our money back just in beer/wine at night. Maybe I had my expectations set pretty low from hearing about Disney Club Level experiences on shows like WDW Today, but I was blown away by the RPR's version of it.

with as many rooms as you will need, you need to make that request as far out as you can.
and, call again about 4-5 days out from arrival to make sure your reservation notes are read for accomodating your groups needs.

you would call the hotel directly.
don't call the booking number but the hotel.

i totally understand what you mean.
you are the chaperone and need to be near the group all the time.

when you made the reservations for the room, did you have the tm list your requests about being kept together?
did you tell them that this is a group of special need adults and you needed rooms together and a convenient location?

if so, call the hotel and ask if all of that is in the notes.

if not, have it listed.

I will call the TA for the agency to find out what she requested , as I have nothing to do with booking the resort the tickets or the flights, which seeing as I am not paying is fine with me !! She has always answered any questions and been very helpful . So that had better be my first call. Thanks for your help !!

if the TA did not make the requests for room locations and you all be next to each other, you can work with the hotel directly to make it happen.

I am considering booking a CL room. I have a couple of questions.

I'm guessing the CL rooms are in a certain tower? Which one is that? Also, I have seen a review where the person requested a theme park view, who do I put a request in with, the person I make the reservation with?


Another question about the resort- I see that TS food places, but are there any quick service places that have a quick breakfast or lunch instead of buffet?

Thanks!

Club is in Tower 3. You can request a view at time of booking.

Grab breakfast in the lobby(Orchid Court) or at CityWalk or in the park at either bakery as you enter. For lunch at the hotel the Bula Bar poolside is terrific.

Can you make a reservation for the breakfast at the Island Dining Room?

I tried through the Universal site and Open Tables but they would only make the reservation for dinner. Should I call or just wing it when we get there?

Thanks!
