Just a thought: It might be useful to put all these CL TR links on the first page. I hyperlinked another one down below.

Lack of stress makes everything better. I know what you mean about those cereals. I never buy those at home, but when I stay CL, I love mixing those awful FF and FL for a treat at least once. That's one thing that's so great about WDW, you can feel like a kid again (or even better than when you were a kid) and no one will judge you. Well, the CL CMs must talk about us a bit on break

I know of one you might like. hstrickland's 2012 TR has a section on their AKL/CL stay with many great photos. The AKL part of her TR starts HERE.

I'm glad you liked it and you might just want to consider a split stay

Not trying to go too OT here, but I noticed your location and the age of your child and it made me think of a DIS poster who lives in Riverside, CA - GrandCalifornian. They have a 3-year-old DD and go to DLR all the time. He posts primarily to the WL thread, however, he and his wife have a wonderful WDW TR from last year and a great WDW PTR currently. Melissa makes the cutest Disney-themed dresses for their DD to wear to WDW. Just had to share.

Noted.

Sorry for my absence. I'm a schoolteacher and the year has been overwhelming, but now I'm on summer vacation and can devote a bit more time. I'll get to the links tomorrow. For now, I added to the BWI post on the main page to include some pics of my 8/12 stay in a Deluxe CL room.

Scott, feel free to take anything of mine that would be helpful. My most recent YC trip report has tons of lounge pics. I can get a bunch of updated Poly CL pics soon too.

Thanks for sharing that! We go to Disneyland on most Saturdays. We've probably run into them and not even know it. I'm gonna read his trip reports! I love to sew too, so Melissa's hobby is right up my alley!

We stayed at the YC CL in April. Here are a few reviews I posted on the YC / BC thread. Thought maybe I should post them here too:

Question: When you have 5 people in a room and you have a daybed, do they make up that bed with sheets and blankets for you when they do the evening turndown service?

Where are you staying? It varies. WL CL has brownies, magic bars, and cobbler. YC and BC have different mousses. Peanut butter and raspberry come to mind. Poly has the best selection of food and desserts, but for the life of me I can't remember what the desserts were.
