We had the same thing happen during all of our CL trips! Lol. As much as ppl stay CL I was surprised at how many CM didn't know about the yellow card!

Yeah, I think sometimes they just run out. When at WL CL last July, we got blue cards. No biggie.

That happened to us in the Test Track line, right before you go into the design room, the guy who was making sure you have a cards was looking us like we had two heads when we showed our yellow cards. He was like "I think they'll still work..." (they did) weird.

My dh and ds aren't into disney the same as dd and I but even they enjoyed having the GOLD cards. We save ours too. I have a box of paperwork, folders, receipts, maps, etc .

We got a upgrade at CR to Atrium club back in 2011 and we fought over who got to put the card in elevator slot. I have a video of it my dh on my iPhone . Still makes me smile.

The perks do make us feel special, I have been back 2 times CL since then

You should never feel bad about stuff like that. Everyone chooses to spend their money differently. You might splurge on the club stays while someone else might have a bigger house or nicer car or shorter commute or whatever...

The CM hefe at Bwi said that the magic bands for all resorts will not have a special color for club level which is why they stopped the gold cards. Maybe they are using them up at certain resorts until then. I do like the special feeling of having the gold card, and theCM also said it helps them identify who belongs there.
Just to be clear, the water bottles I mentioned were the smaller plastic bottles. I was told no for that but i was given large glass bottles of evian.

Do you think they will be changed over in 6 weeks to the wristbands? My husband is not too happy about wearing something on his wrist. He already said he's not wearing it. He's my 4th child by the way.

I'll be sad if we don't have gold cards though.

How does it compare to the club level at BC, and which do you prefer.

Can you get alcohol at any time? I know beer/wine are put out at a certain time (maybe late afternoon?), but can you ask the CM's for wine earlier, for example to take to the pool? Also, how about the cordials put out with desserts - can you get them earlier? Staying at YC if it makes a difference which CL.

We have stayed Poly club and GF club and yes, my DH requested beer each afternoon for the pool and cast members were very accommodating. I may have gotten wine, but I don't remember. Not sure about cordials.
