Love the pics trishadono.

The one with the wine and food looking out the window looks so nice. I could see myself sitting there for a long time.

You are killing me trishadono!!!!

I have been thinking that 2014 is the perfect time to finally stay Poly CL....we had been hesitant because we weren't too thrilled with the Poly decor and were waiting for a refurb. Well, the refurb came, but the DVC is coming too....and now with word that Neverland Club is closing in October....I'm thinking that we won't stay at the Poly...but then I see pics like this...what to do? what to do???

We've stayed at both and love both. For your purposes, I would stay at the Polynesian CL because 1) if you love the Polynesian, you're appreciation for it will only increase after staying CL and 2) you might as well experience something you haven't before.

The lounge is 2 stories so there is a lot of room, the second floor (of the lounge - 3rd floor of the bldg) is quieter, with games and comfy seating, a nice place to hang. Being able to watch the fireworks from the lounge and just the lovely view in general, is pretty great. The food offerings have an asian/island flair so that makes it a little different and enjoyable. The Hawaii building is in a great location.

For us we're back to the BWI for CL which we enjoyed immensely, but that has a lot to do with location. That said, it was a really tough choice this year.

Hope this helped as your posts over at the BC/YC thread have been invaluable to us.

We've never stayed at BWI and have only stayed GV at the Poly, but I would try Poly CL since you've never stayed CL there before. I have been reading some awesome things about Poly CL lately. If you like the Poly, I think trying CL is a good idea (especially since you've stayed BWI CL) .

How would you compare WL CL to Poly CL? We have stayed CL at the WL and GF (both RPC & SL). RPC is my favorite, but WL CL runs a very close second (didn't care for SL). We are trying Poly CL in December and I am very excited, but a little part of me is wondering how it will compare to the WL and GF .

I think all rooms at BWI have daybeds, but I'm not 100% sure. We've never stayed at BWI, but after researching it for a future stay, it seems to me that all rooms have one. But I agree with the pp that I would put a request in for a daybed just in case .

Have you thought about GF? We've stayed both SL and RPC and RPC is amazing . SL was nice to try, but I didn't care for it and would rather stay GV if I wasn't able to do RPC.

Does AKL Cl still have the Wii in the lounge. My boys would love this if we have some rainy days. We don't spend a lot of time in the parks anymore.

I know the CL rooms at AKL are on the 4th floor, but are they reasonably close to the lobby or should I request it. I have heard about the 10 minutes walks to the lobby at this resort.

We are also staying a BWI CL after the cruise. We have not stayed at this BWI CL level either. We have stayed at YC, BC, Poly and WL club levels. I loved WL and Poly. BC and YC were just ok. My favorite resort is YC, but I'm just not sure CL was worth it. How does BWI compare? Thanks
Just curious why did you like poly CL more then bc/YC CL? Thanks

Thanks!
The lounges are small. The food was just ok, and the display was just so-so. There was just no "Wow" factor for me at all. I do think I liked the BC CL better than YC. The cm's were friendlier and it had a more relaxed feel. YC was a little stuffy with a lot of convention people there.

I'm sure in the future I'll be staying club level at one of these resorts again because it is difficult to get a SV or GV room with a discount. Our upcoming trip I had a choice between YC LV or SV CL. I decided to give BWI a try.

Really, what haven't I considered???

But yes, GF is kind of my "back up plan" at this time, but I was thinking Sugarloaf...what didn't you like about it???

The lounge is larger and you have a view of the lake, mk and the fireworks. The lounge is also right off the pool which is so convenient. The food at Poly is wonderful. The also have a alcoholic punch which is delicious. The YC lounge like a said in PP is really small with no view. The food was just ok.

The only think I don't like about the Poly is the price. We haven't stayed there in a while, and I'm not sure if we ever will again. We really enjoy the Epcot resorts more now that my kids are tweeners.

The pool and location at YC make up for it's lack luster club level. It will always be our favorite resort, as far as club level goes it would be near the bottom of the list.
