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)
We've never stayed at the CR, but WL CL is amazing. The food offerings are great, the lounge has plenty of seating that is arranged around the railing overlooking the lobby, and the CL CMs are awesome . With that said, we are trying CR CL in December and I have read a lot of great reviews lately. Since you have stayed at the WL and already know what a great resort it is, adding CL would make it that much better, IMO . Good luck deciding, but I don't think you can go wrong with either one (especially since you've stayed at and like both resorts).

Hello!! I was just wondering if any is familiar with the Deluxe Concierge level rooms @ the WL? We were going to stay @ the BC Concierge, but last min. my husband really wanted more space because we have two teenagers. It just seemed like it was the best option for us because it has a separate living space with another TV even though there's only one bathroom.
We've never stayed WL at all, so any advice or suggestions is welcome! Can anyone tell me how the transportation is there? We're used to walking to Epcot (hoping my pain pump is going to be adjusted so no scooter)

Just booked theme park view CL at Poly based on everyone's great reviews - now I see volcano pool is under renovations 9-20 Sep. Our trip is 25 Sep-1 Oct. What are chances pool project will be completed on time? Or should we switch to BC CL? ( We were at BC in July - loved the pool - wanted to do Poly with fireworks and 2nd best pool - splurging with CL this trip no matter where )

Hi! We answered you back on the Poly board that the rehab for the volcano pool has been pushed to Jan. Tikiman reported it, I called disney recreation and spoke to a manager at Poly itself to confirm since Ill be there 9/7-9/15 and have a cabana rented..

Hello! DH and I are booked for YC GV CL in October. Through all of the free dining/room only discount madness, I've seen the Garden Cottage CL rooms at Boardwalk open up - for the same price I've already paid. Has anyone stayed at both? Never done CL before, but have stayed SV at both resorts. What's the good, bad and ugly?
Thanks!

What discount code did you see it under? The FD or RO? I looked at it with the FD code & it was a few hundred dollars more than my Deluxe WL booked & more than my GV BC CL.. It looks absolutely beautiful & the 2 bathrooms would be great! Except it only sleeps 4 & I have 2 teenagers-a son & a daughter who definitely wouldn't want to share a pull out sofa-lol!
Although yesterday when I called to modify my reservation-I added the FD to my BC ressie-& then I asked about WL Deluxe..I really didn't think it was included under FD because I checked the website (@ 4am when everything was already loaded) & it showed up under a full price ressie, but not w. FD. I asked my CM & I was SO excited to hear that it was!!

Just curious why you think that GF RPC is $1000 more then Poly GV CL. Is RPC that much "better" then Poly CL?

It's b/c it's in the main building.. You'll hear the orchestra playing & all it is very nice.. I wouldn't say better.. It depends on your preference.. Both Poly & GF CL are my two favorite

We haven't stayed in a deluxe room, but have stayed at the WL twice with one of those stays being CL and IMO, CL is amazing. The food offerings are great, the lounge is nice in that it overlooks the lobby, and the CL CMs are awesome . I don't know too much about the deluxe rooms as we've never stayed in one, but I do know they are not located on the CL floor. I'm not sure which floor(s) they are on, but you will be on a different floor from the lounge. As far as transportation, in our experience, the buses were always quick and efficient as was the boat to/from MK and CR .

As the pp said, RPC is in the main building, which is also where you catch the monorail. The GF is also Disney's flagship resort. We have never stayed Poly CL so I can't compare the two, but as the pp said, I don't think it's a matter of RPC being better, but rather preferred to some people .

Thank you!! Sounds great! I'll have to research further where the deluxe rooms are, but that's no problem, we don't live in the CL, we just make occas. visits & I have teenagers! Lol
The transportation thing I was worried about, but now I feel better! Thx!!!

IMHO you pay 4 the location. Now you even pay for theme park view, which you never had to before!
The ROC is in the main building of the GF which is absolutely amazing!! I loved the Poly-CL was amazing..I also loved their Main Bldg-where you check in & the restaurants are..but you stay in longhouses & I would say that the GF RPC is all in the main bldg with the monorail right there.
Neither is "better" it's a matter of preference..
My kids loved the volcano pool @ the Poly..I think it's nice to check out each resort..each one has something special!!

Thank you all for so much valuable information. Just one more question: if you do a split stay is it any easier or more convenient to move if your staying CL as opposed to a regular room?

It was under room only. Still pricy, but a deal if that's what you want. I did read that there are some cottages where the upstairs is not wide open, so it could work for a family - if they wanted to sleep on the couch
That's awesome that you got the FD!!
