Thanks!! I think I'll just buy a few at the dollar tree and see if I can pass them along to someone at the end of our trip.

That's what we've done and people are always so appreciative.
Now if you were staying at either YC/BC or CBR, I'd say, you can always find a ton laying around since Hurricane Hanna's and the food court at CBR serve some of their kids' meals in a bucket. It's actually kind of sad, so many of them get thrown away.

Really? Good to know! We are staying Club Level! Any other little perks I should know about, you know, besides the listed ones?

Is it a cheap bucket? I don't want to feel like I have to make room to take it home lol unless it is worth it?

I got our email from IPO. I think this is a record for me. 13 days before our ADRs can be made.

Woo hoo!

I got my IPO email for my March BC CL stay as well - your trip is pretty far off, how soon do they usually send that email out? Do you make any room requests through IPO, or don't they have any control over that? I already had my ADRs so I don't need any assistance with that - anything else I should be thinking about asking them/having them help me with? It's my first CL stay so this is all new to me.

When did that start? We've stayed CL twice and never gotten a bucket at checkin. Last time we stayed was Feb. 2011.

They have a really decent selection of Disney movies on DVD you can borrow from them to watch in your room. Just ask them for the movies list at the desk.

You get a Really strange little bag of salt at the end of your stay with a note explaining it.

Sometimes you get a large bar of chocolate with the poly logo on it when you arrive..

We have always been taken to CL by a cast member in a golf cart.. But some have not..

I really like not having to stand in line in the GCH to check in.

I also like going to the CL desk to make reservations.

Oh and if you buy items in the park, when staying club level.. The items will be delivered to your room.. Normally you would have to pick up items at the gift shop.

They do not automatically give you one unless your kids are little.. But if you want one next time, just ask.. They are either on the shelf behind them or in the right hand side of the closed cabinet behind them.

It's the little plastic bucket and shovel that you would normally get at a dollar store.. They only give them to the little ones.. It's not something they just give to everybody.

So exciting! We have never stayed deluxe period, let alone CL at the Poly. I am just so happy! My boys are 2 and 7, they are going to love it so much!

CL is really great.. The only problem is getting spoiled.. And nothing else will do. Even staying at the poly in a garden room will destroy your ability to stay at any non-deluxe resort. So be careful..
