I have stayed at the GF RPC once and the YC CL twice. I would agree that the food choices are better at the GF, but we enjoyed the YC CL a little bit more. The CM's were wonderful and extremely helpful.

I think both resorts are wonderful and I would not hesitate to stay at either one. My children prefer the YC and SAB. Have a great trip!

Jecon We are doing a split between WL CL and YC LV. We have stayed at WL CL on the last two trips. I really want to change it up. I love Poly CL, but I will miss the hot tub. CR does not appeal to me at all. I was briefly booked at GF SL, but then I started questioning myself. Do I really need to spend that extra 500.00 dollars when my family is happy at WL? The food selections at GF look really good I'll have to think about it some more. I had a choice between a SV CL or a LV at YC. The club level wasn't much more, but I think I will enjoy the nice view more than I do the CL.

Mickeynut I forgot about adventures by Disney.

You should definitely give it a try, if possible. We loved it.

Yes, I hope you'll add a night or two (or more!) here onto one of your trips
Let's make it next summer and we will stay at the same time

Our son & girlfriend are staying at a different hotel, and will be meeting us every morning at the Yacht Club. Can we bring them up to our room? Sorry if this is already posted somewhere. I tried to find it but could not.
The lounges are for CL guests only. There is barely enough food for the people paying for it so I really don't think guests should be allowed to bring guests from other floors or other resorts. Now as for your room, I think it's fine to have people come up there. I'm not really sure why you would want to hang in the room when you're at WDW but I don't see a problem with it. Typically we have our family members meet us in the lobby because I don't even want to raise eyebrows of the CL staff bringing people up to the floor. But that's just my own personal opinion.

When you say arrive at 1:00 do you mean your plane lands at 1:00? It's hard to know for sure what time you'll arrive at the resort, but I wouldn't count on seeing your luggage for at least a couple of hours. You can always choose to not use your yellow luggage tags and just go down to baggage claim and get them yourself and take them on the bus. We've done that many times.

No corona or vodka in any lounges. No rum or tequila either. The only hard liquor they have are the evening cordials at 8:00 PM and those are things like Amaretto and Grand Marnier. The types of beer offered are also very limited and vary by resort. They do offer various wines from 5:00-7:00.

I will check it out. I'm not much for tour groups. I kind of like to do my own thing. We are planning on doing a European cruise in 2 or 3 years. My kids will be 13 and 14 then. I want them to be old enough to remember it since the cost is outrageous. 10-15k on DCL. I haven't checked into other cruise lines yet.

I remember the first time we saw the view at Poly CL when we were checking in! We were amazed and couldn't stop staring out the window!

TPV CL has the best views in all of WDW we spent so much time out on our balcony we watched Wishes the whole trip from there it was truly magical!!

The Poly would be my first choice. We haven't stayed CL (yet), but the Poly is our favorite resort overall.....we just love everything about it .

I can picture myself grabbing a seat and not moving the whole time we're there .

TPV CL sounds heavenly . I priced it out against GV CL and it's almost $500 more for our 2 nights, so I'll probably stick with GV.....but I'm sure we will still have a magical time .
