We are booked for a TPV for our ten year anniversary. It was an amazing surprise that was almost pulled off by my DH. We were booked for CS and he went to the TA and upgraded us to the Polly, our favorite resort!! Now I am trying to pull one over on him and have gone to our TA (who must think we are nuts) and asked her to book CL TPV. Do you think this can be pulled off until we arrive or will it be obvious when we get our paperwork before the trip? I would love to be able to surprise him. We have not been in a few years so I do not remember how it was when we did CL 4 or 5 years ago. Thanks for your help!!!

On my welcome package it states Garden View. I would either hide the package(by saying you already packed it away) or just fib and say you haven't received it yet. That would be a nice suprise to walk into your club level room and see the castle out the sliding glass doors!

Really what are we doing here, making our resort overcrowded! Shouldn't we get some compensation for it, a free Pina Colava, dole whip or lapu lapu?

Does anyone know if we still tell the bellhop that we are checking in for club level?
The bellhop will know already because the security guard notifies him when you pull up to gate, your name, CL & the kind of vehicle you drive. So when you pull towards valet -bell services, they will already know who to look for & if your room is available.

I'm sure my kids would love it and would consider it this trip except that we're bringing Gma along and she's willing to stay with the kiddos a few evenings so DH and I can have some time together!
We try to do one "extra" each trip. Last year it was the Pirates n Pals Fireworks cruise and Hoop Dee Doo, this year it is MNSSHP and the pirate adventure. I would gladly trade both for CL!!! You are lucky to have an extra set of hands so that you can have a few evenings to yourself. This will be our first adults only night in Disney!

We will keep our eyes out for your little pirate and princess, I am sure we are bound to run into you at some point. Now I am off to do the happy dance, as we are now in the single digit numbers of our countdown, and to try to get some packing done. I am much more excited about the happy dance part!

I know it's in the the Tonga longhouse and is one of the smaller rooms at the Poly (around 385 sq ft vs typical rooms are 409 sq feet). The suite has a king bed and Jacuzzi tub. It has a view of the Marina and the Seven Seas Lagoon.

We did pirate and pals 2 years ago - so fun! DH and I did Illuminations cruise for our 10th anniv. and loved it. CL is definitly the "extra" this year!! Enjoy your adults only time - we love Disney with the kids but its just as magical when its just us

DGD's enjoyed Neverland Club so much last year they ASKED their Mother if they could spend an evening there again on this trip. DD had to CHANGE her schedule to find an evening for them to stay!

So good to hear. I was having some serious guilt sticking my daughter in a babysitting program when we are supposed to be on a family vacation, but it's important to have grownup time too! DH and I have always wanted to spend time in EPCOT just checking out the pavilions, but somehow we always end up chasing characters for autographs across the world! Hearing such positive feedback will let me really enjoy our night, thank you!

Here's another BIG THUMBS UP for the Neverland Club! My kids also ASKED to go and really enjoyed it! DH and I like an evening at Epcot by ourselves. Don't feel guilty AT ALL. I like scheduling the 'kids night' after a few days. By then, both kids and parents are ready for their own time. We've also tried the Den's club at Wilderness Lodge and while the kids liked it, they both said they preferred the Neverland club.
