That's a pretty subjective opinion. It's just my DH & I, we want quiet. The first time we ever stayed @YC CL, we were in the room right next to the CL "prep" room. HATED IT! We were woken up at 6:30 every morning by the noise. We get up before 5 for work & look forward to sleeping on vacation. And of course, you can occasionally hear people in the halls.

Ever since then we put in a request for a "quiet room, away from housekeeping". We are usually quite a ways down the hall- last month we were in the furthest room possible. Lots of people hate to walk that far to their room, but it doesn't bother us at all. In 6 days, we heard someone in the hall once.

If you have kids & intend to let them go to the lounge on their own, you might want to be closer to the lounge. We usually just leave right from the lounge in the mornings & stop for snacks on our way back in the afternoon. So we don't do a lot of back & forth.

There is a middle ground, I just don't know how you'd request that!

Another updatr from Boardwalk Innkeepers Club. Lounge was again quiet last night about 9:30 but very few offerings, just mini pecan pies and rice crispie treats. We slept late this morning and went to lounge about 10:15. Usual fair of oatmeal, fruit and pastries. There was a bowl of hard boiled eggs as opposed to the individual plated sliced eggs we had our last several stays at BC. I was told no small bottles of water except perhaps for suites.
System was back up this morning so we got out key cards made. Miss the gold cards, now we have blue like everyone else. I was told the system was down because they are rolling out the bands for two resorts and this would happen every time they add another resort. Not sure if thats accurate.
This afternoon snacks were cookies, goldfish, trail mix stuff, chocolate covered raisins and chocolate covered almonds. They also had the home made potato chips we loved from BC but not the dip. Is that being served at BC any more? That may be a dealbreaker for returning to BWI LOL.

All of Disney computers were down including online. There were no gold keys at the YC last month. I was told the batch they had were bad and had to use the blue keys. Made no difference to me, it opened all the right doors!

Not much in the way of desserts at the YC either. Looking forward to trying the BC in December. We just returned from Disneyland and stayed at the Disneyland Hotel on the Club Level and had a great time.

That's wierd! We had the gold keys at YC the last week of April.

What do you mean no bottles of water? I'm starting to get a little nervous about trying CL. Paying all that extra money and you can't even get a bottle of water unless you're in a suite?

I've stayed CL at Poly, CR, BC and GF and they didn't have the plastic bottles they had big glass bottles you can ask for to take to your room..

It's not that you can't get a bottle of water - they'll give you a large bottle of water to take to your room. They don't generally give the individual size plastic bottles, because people were taking more than they could use & then leaving them in their room fridge when they checked out. I guess the resort couldn't reuse them once they were taken out of the lounge.

You can bring some empty bottles to fill up for taking to the park if you want. (And sometimes you might get lucky if you explain you'd just like a few individual bottles.)

Good Luck and have a great stay.

We actually got 20 oz plastic bottles of water to go at YC CL in April. It seems only some resorts offer this for some reason, but we really appreciated it!

It seems like just BC and YC. Maybe they just bottle all the water from Stormalong Bay.

We stayed at the YC in May and did not get gold keys either. We checked in on the 9th. BC CL has the same food as YC. I'm glad I am not much of dessert person or I would really be disappointed.

Since the Club level at BWI doesn't seem to be much different than YC. I switched back to YC today. Why pay a 100.00 dollars more and have a lesser pool. I love the BWI, but it's so hard to give up SAB.

That's good to know. I missed getting my gold cards last time, but I didn't want to ask the CM's. I felt kind of silly asking about it. I keep all of our room keys. I have no idea why, but I do.

It was funny but I had a couple of CM's that worked at quick service restaurants ask me why my card was yellow. I told them that they were club level cards but I felt a little funny saying that. I didn't want to seem pretentious as we are a very middle class family .
