We have the Fantasy booked for next April too. Concierge wasn't available but we will look out for another last minute upgrade. Or we might cancel it and save our pennies for the ABD to Central Europe/ Prague/ Austria!

I've read a number of similar accounts where guests were allowed to have guests outside of their room use the lounge with them as well. Even encouraged to invite them by the CL staff in some instances.

I've never seen Vodka in any WDW CL lounge and I don't recall seeing Corona - sorry.

At least I knew before I booked!

We are staying CL at the BWI for New Years Eve this year. Does anything special happen in the lounge? At the resort? How is the view of the special NYE fireworks from the lounge?

We are deciding between a CL stay at either the YC or BC. Which would you choose? We've stayed at both the SL and RPC in the GF and are the food and drink offerings comparable? I've read a couple of reviews that the food was limited at the YC

The food offerings at BC and YC are the same. I only did BC and we enjoyed it but I've heard complaints from those who have done CL elsewhere that the lounges at both are small and a bit crowded in comparison. We had no issues with that though. I prefer the decor of BC which is why we chose that. Nautical theme just doesn't appeal to me.

I don't think the food offerings are going to be comparable to what you are used too. The BC and YC are pretty similar in offerings. I think the YC has better views, and you are guaranteed a balcony. The Epcot resorts do offer hard boiled eggs in the morning which is a big plus, but overall don't compare to the MK resorts especially RPC.

I decided to skip CL at YC on our next trip. I booked a LV instead.

What does ABD stand for. Just curious. We are planning several cruises over the next 5 years.

Officially the rule is that CL is for paying CL guests only. It is, however, somewhat up to the discretion of the individual CL staff to allow it or not. When we stayed at BWI, I asked if some non-CL family members could join us in the lounge to share a birthday cake I bought for my son. I was told (nicely), no, that the CL lounge was only for CL guests. So it's not something anyone should count on or expect.

GF CL has the best food offerings at Disney, IMO. When we stayed SL, breakfast included a wide assortment of pastries plus yogurt, oatmeal & toppings, sliced meats & cheeses, and hard-boiled eggs. YC had a small selection of pastries, yogurt, oatmeal & toppings, and hard-boiled eggs.

For snacks, I recall SL having veggies and breadsticks in addition to the usual chips, trail mix & cookies offered at YC.

Starting at 4pm, SL offered tea and scones . They don't have that at YC. And the evening appetizers were WAY more plentiful and in a greater variety than YC.

IMO, the food offerings at the Epcot resorts are just okay. MK resorts are much better, with GF being the very best.

[QUOTE=mickeynut1;48779534]I can't help with your question about Chef Eugene, but just wanted to say congrats on being able to get back to the Poly .


Thanks for the congrats mickeynut1, we can't wait to go back. Have tried some other CL resorts since being here and nothing beats watching the fireworks from the CL lounge!

This is my opinion as well. For me, YC and BWI CLs just didn't come close to the MK Resorts offerings and lounge sizes, though I do wish the MK Resorts offered boiled eggs at breakfast.

I agree with your post and feel the MK Resort's CL offerings are more varied and extensive.

Thanks everyone for your advice on the YC/BC CL. We are doing a split stay so maybe this part of the trip we will skip the CL knowing we will have it at the GF for the bulk of the trip.
