From what I've read, a lot of people do WDW first and then the cruise. We are staying at a Disney resort both before and after .
That is awesome!!

We checked into YC club level today. They staff was extremely friendly. We stayed BWI club level and AKL club level before so we can compare those. We liked both of those and so far YC seems good too.

We got the gold cards. They added our UCT park tickets to the room key. We created a code for room charging. We got all of our room requests-near lounge and a daybed. The lounge is four rooms down and is close to elevator but not so close we hear much noise. It is nice. The room was clean. We always bring Lysol wipes to wipe remote and knobs etc.



The staff told us we could ask for bottled water for the parks and beer during afternoon if we wanted it.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will try to find answers.

Most CL opinions posted here are highly personal. Much has to do with the CM's you happen to get, and everyone's mood that week. I've had a few service jobs myself. Sometimes a kind or rude guest affected me for hours or days. I've been to WDW enough times to say, multiple visits to the same resort can be widely variable.

IMO, The two least valuable criteria are (individual) CM experience and CL food variation between resorts. Food is pretty similar in all the resort CL's. Food is an important part of staying CL (or not) just not variation between CLs - unless you happen to know you really want something like a certain brand of beer offered at only one resort.

Each resort has pros and cons. I find the best criteria are: price points, theming, layout, and amenities you plan to use. (transportation, recreation) You kind of can't go wrong with Disney. Split stays are also another fun option.

Judging a resort based on the CM's that another guest happened to encounter months or years before your visit...probably not the best criteria.

ITA w/this. Of course, we were also uncomfortable with the incredibly dedicated level of service we got at BWI--we are totally the type of people who are just like, hey, good morning, how are you, ok I'll go get my coffee now, no need to chat further

We *almost* didn't go back to CL for this upcoming trip because we felt out of place, feeling like we were the only people in there who weren't wealthy. Which I am sure is not true. But it kind of felt that way. But DH has wanted to do the Sunrise Safari for years, so we upgraded and I am sure it will be great.

I agree.....cruises are a great value . My DH and I have cruised in the past (with our favorite being Alaska on Princess ), but our DSs have never cruised. My oldest is a little hesitant, so I figured a 3 night would be a good way for him to experience it (and I get to try DCL, which I've always wanted to do ). It will go fast, but it will also be enough time for him to see what it's like and form an opinion of whether or not he likes it. I just didn't want to book a 7 night and have him hate it and want off the boat after a day or two (not that that would happen, but some people just aren't into being on a ship in the middle of LOTS of water).
I can understand the desire to do a test run. Hopefully your sons will love cruising and want to go again. My 3 year old has already been on 2 cruises and can't wait to "go on a big boat again"

I hope so, too, because my youngest would love to cruise to Alaska (and I wouldn't mind going back ). That is so cute that your 3 yo loves it so much that he's excited to go again......looks like you have many cruises in your future .

Okay silly question... What type of beer do they offer at the Poly club? My husband says we can only stay at club level if they have good beer. I'm desperately trying to convince him

I know for sure that they have Kona Long Board Lager. Not sure what other kinds they have. If your DH likes a good beer, he will love that one.

Update: we checked in earlier. We have a standard view club room at YC and have a great view of Wishes from our balcony. It made my day. I didn't realize I would see anything from our balcony.

That's awesome enjoy! We had a standard view CL at BC last month and were also able to see Wishes from our balcony. It was a very pleasant surprise.

The only time I see my kids on the ship is when it's time to eat and sleep. As my kids get older I think cruising will be our vacation of choice. We will get to take them to a lot of cool places like Alaska and Europe, but they will have kids their own age to hang out with while on the ship.
