In addition to the hot appetizers they have cold salads, PBJ for the kids, dip and vegetables, apples with caramel. You won't go hungry.

I just noticed that on Allears.net... the Leaping Horse Libations pool bar says "closed for refurb" next to their menu. Does anyone know if this is true? I didn't find anything on their actual "refurbs and closings" page or here (though I didn't look too hard ) Just didn't know what to expect for our Sept. trip... same menu or not?

Hey TaraPa I see that. I answered your question on the other CL forum about balconies. We have been on both floors but prefer the 4th floor. If you don't mind taking the steps and walking a few extra min then go for the larger balcony. It will be hot during the day, but it should be pleasant at night and first thing in the AM. We head down in 2 wks.

Sorry for any confusion. I didn't post photos of the appetizers that are served from 5-7 so it may appear they don't exist, but be assured that they will be there when you stay for DS's birthday.

Oh no confusion on your part - I saw on ALL Ears it just said "wine & cheese" between 5-6:30 & thought maybe it literally meant JUST wine & cheese!

But the million dollar question is.....do they have oatmeal at breakfast?!?!?

(and yes WL CL did still have the oatmeal out in late March & it was heavenly...)

Ok waterparks - I've been to WDW over 20 times & have never done a water park! The boys beg to do them so its time. I HATE water parks, so what suggestions do you have for me?

I should have preempted the oatmeal question by reporting that YES! They do have it (I have some breakfast photos on the first page). Well, at least in April they had it so I think it's year 'round and not seasonal, like WL. And they have the sliced hard boiled eggs that WL doesn't have. AllEars is great, but their CL information is, well... Hot and cold Hors D'oeuvres are served from 5-7.

Ah, the water parks. I recall schlepping those 'water craft' up many flights of stairs when DD was younger. If your DS is 13, he can carry them himself. I dislike hordes of people, so I go only during AM EMH. This works out well for the water parks as they are much less crowded, you can easily get on all the rides and it's not as hot. By lunch, we are all done and head back to the resort. I prefer driving to the water park, but have taken the bus from WL. I've never used the BWI buses (we walked or drove) so I can't comment on them.

Agreed!!! First, one of the reasons I love CL at BWI is the hard boiled eggs. I rarely eat breakfast, but at BWI, it was hard boiled eggs, strawberries, juice and coffee every morning. These items do not taste as good at home as they do in the BWI club lounge!

As for waterparks, also agreed!!! I strongly dislike waterparks, but will occasionally take one for the team. Usually I won't take one for the team on Disney time, but I gave in pre-cruise in 2011.

Honestly, I can say that Typhoon Lagoon is my favorite waterpark of all time (if you can have a favorite among things you don't love.) The theming is so well done, and it just seems so CLEAN compared to other waterparks. I'm sure Blizzard Beach is the same in terms of cleanliness, but we opted for TL because it just seems less hectic.

The bus from BWI to TL is fine (it's the way home that's not so great, but still OK.)

KOOK is absolutely right - morning EMH, then lunch, then escape! (Even better would be lunch back in the Epcot resort area, but that doesn't leave much time.)

And the wave pool at TL is really amazing and a ton of fun. We're in southern California jumping in the waves and boogie boarding every year, so we love big waves. It's not the same, but it's the best I've seen at a waterpark.

Maybe it's the Disney goggles, but the entire experience beats your typical waterpark!

Oh, and then after lunch, I'd recommend some time at the BWI quiet pool!

Excited to learn about the ins and outs of Boardwalk on this thread!

Welcome, west&east!!! Hope you love BWI CL as much as we do! The lounge is wonderful and the CMs are among the best at Disney. We request a boardwalk view and enjoy the beautiful view of YC/BC! Love sitting out on the balcony listening to the soothing boardwalk music and watching the friendship boats go by.

The bedding is very similar to the bedding at BC - fluffy comforters with the runner at the end of the bed. I think BWI, BC and YC have the most comfy beds in WDW. Unless they changed something recently, you'll be happy!

Thanks PixarMom! I think we chatted a couple of years ago when I was a club level newbie. So glad to hear that the beds at BWI are comfy! Excited to check it out.

Thanks for the tips. I agree we should hit a water park at opening, stay for 2-3 hours then get the heck out! I want a shaded spot to sit in while they go do all the slides & such, and I read you must be there at opening to get one. Can you just leave your belongings at your chairs while you go do things (I MIGHT try the lazy river) - or will it be moved/disturbed til you get back?
