Typically once they turn it down the first night they will continue to turn it down the rest of the stay. It helps because our son has stuffed animals which make it look more used. Also, if you happen to be around your room for the 5:00-7:00 PM appetizers you might be able to track down the turndown person in the flesh and tell them that someone will be using the daybed that night and to please turn it down, but we've only had about a 50/50 result with that working. Those daybeds are a pain in the you know what to try and turn down yourself, plus we typically request an extra blanket too (the daybeds are always in direct flow of the A/C vent).
A note, or putting the extra pillows and blanket is a good idea. They are a pain to pull out and put together!

The Grand Floridian had beautiful pastries every evening! Tarts, little pastries, mini eclairs, cupcakes...I cannot even describe some of them they were so good!

Plus there are 5 of us, and my kids are 9, 12, and 15 so the less stuff we have and more seating in the room the better. OF course the idea of a full balcony is nice too. Maybe I'll just see what we get and go from there.

It's not petty...I couldn't agree more. It's funny, on other trips, I'm not nearly as picky, but at WDW, especially at a deluxe resort, I like the room looking nice at all times! The rollaway would drive. me. insane.

Staying club level in a couple months and renting a stroller from Orlando strollers. Stroller should be there before we are of course.

Do we still need to head to bell services or can I ask the club level/bell services CM's to have it moved there or to our room?

Traveling with a toddler and thus trying to minimize stops at different desks, etc.

This is a great idea! I have the same question! I put "concierge" on my orlando stroller rental request, not bell services. So I was wondering if it would be w/ the CL CMs. If we can email the pre-planning services team to just put it in our room and possibly even leave it w/ them for return, that would be ideal....Anyone know?? Thanks!

I have totally devoured your thread already! LOL Poly CL puts out a whole list of what they are serving. Just looking to see if the YC has the same kind of list.

I don't think their menu is set in stone. I know we had the same two hot things back to back nights and another night only one hot item. Also this time we never hit lobster salad the whole 8 days which was disappointing. But we definitely had chicken skewers, pot stickers, mini egg rolls, bacon wrapped scallops, and those little triangle puffs. Nothing to get excited about really for the hot items. My favorites were the salads. They had a good caprese salad 2 or 3 nights that week, and ahi tuna one night. I thought the salads seemed fresher and better tasting than the warmed up Costco appetizers. I'm not a fan of those small fried things.
