I don't think she would be interested in using the CL lounge, we would provide dinner and/or snacks for her if she wants them. I just wanted to make sure it would be ok for her to stay in our room on that floor.

We aren't even 100% sure we are going to do this, just wanted to have a plan ahead of time.

I don't see anything wrong with her being in your room . You can always talk to a CM when you arrive (if you decide to) regarding the lounge just in case she might want to go down there .

It's a gradual rehab, completed a few rooms at a time, you won't even notice it's happening. Teena reported that all work is done during the day and if you are next door and it disturbs you they will switch your room. If you want to stay in a rehabbed room the higher the floor, the higher the likelihood that it will be done, as they are starting with CL rooms. :

I know Disney has their own in room sitters, but we would rather utilize someone we know and it would save them some money as well.
One likely option you may have, if you wish, is simply to add her to your room reservation. If you meet the criteria below, adding her will be free.

Regular rooms sleep four people. Children under two don't count towards that total. WL regular rooms hold up to two adults plus two children over age two, plus one child under two- for no additional charge. (three adults= + $27 per night)

If you have a package (room + tickets), adding her now will cost extra, because you'd have to add her to your full package. However, once you are at WL, you can add her as just a room guest. (no ticket) You can even list her as a guest for just the one night- even if she isn't technically staying overnight.

Hope that makes sense.

Curious....did age requirements change? I thought one child under age 3 didn't count towards the room max.

It didn't change. It is "under age 3". Kids age 2 and under do not count in the occupancy limit.

We wouldn't be able to add her, we have 4 adults and a child under 3 in the room already. We do have a room only with military discount.

It's $25 per night per adult over 2.

At Beach Club now and wanted to update on the bottled water debate I started: We checked in Wed night and they were out of bottled water and didn't get any in until mid day Thursday. Now that they have some, it seems like they are rationing it. I asked for three (for me and my kids) and the girl said I can give you one or two. So whatever, I ask for a couple when I go there and I also went and picked up a case at 7-11. All I drink is water though, so I don't feel bad to keep asking for it.
On another note, we were there for evening snacks and I was upset to learn that none of the items were labeled. I have a seafood allergy and had to hunt down someone to tell me what each item contained. Something wrapped that looked delicious had crab in it so I am glad I asked. Since it seems like they put out similar items every night I really think things should be clearly labeled.
Also, at 7pm, the end of evening snack time, they take everything that is left and throw it away. So to the people afraid of taking too much, I would take it because chances are it will get tossed. It would make more sense to me if they just stopped making more food at 630 and then left it out until it was mostly gone say around 730. Yesterday they brought out a fresh tray of appetizers at 6:45 only to throw it away at 7.
Overall though, I love the convenience factor. I love the kids having somewhere other than my bed to eat cereal. No more crumbs and spilled milk in our room. We are right down the hallway so a couple of us can go to the lounge if everyone else wants quiet. My husband is in love with the COOL factor and has decided he is never staying non cl again.

I dont recall ever seeing plastic bottle water at Poly CL, but f we want water they always gave us big glass bottles of Evian now my understanding they give you a sealed decanter of filtered water which is fine by me. My understanding that they are doing away with the plastic bottles b/c there is a LOT of waste..

WL or Contemporary Club level?

We did BC last fall for our first time doing CL and loved it and the resort, but me and my DH do prefer the MK area. We are either going to do WL or Contemporary club level. We love both of these resorts, my DHs 'fav is WL, we've stayed there twice is woods and CY view, my fav is CR, I just LUV that big old toaster of a hotel and the convenience of the monorail to the elevator to your room. My ? is the actual club level in both resorts. I do like being on the same floor as the club itself for convenient access if anyone can speak to that at either resort. BC club was nice but kinda small. Which has a better spread of food, size,views...ect....It's just me and my DH. We have always done all our Disney trips in the late fall, this time we want to try March or early April to experience the Flower show and just something different. I really want to go when the 7 Dwarves mine ride will be open. Any new info. on that? Thanks so much.....Mary in MI (Travelgoddess)

I don't see any problem with your friend's daughter babysitting in your room. The only issue is that she won't have a key to get back into the room if she leaves it. You can add her as a day guest so she can get a room key. The CL concierge can easily do that for you. She can also go to the lounge as your guest.
