The problem comes from guests taking so much of the offerings not thinking about the other ppl in the lounge or making their way to the lounge to eat as well. It's not fair to the other guests to take enough to make a meal if it was meant as a meal it would say Dinner but it doesn't. Breakfast is the only offering meant as a meal.

Maybe you were able to take just a little of each & could call that a meal but I know for my family & we are all small ppl, could not make that our dinner and be satisfied..
I feel the same. It's a nice snack after an afternoon workout in the gym. We are way to active a family to call that a meal. I also have preteen son that eats every chance he gets.

I know my DH and my friend and her husband are looking forward to the free beer and snacks in the afternoon/evening as well as the dessert options at the WL CL.
I understand what you are saying. I replied in post # 2520.

Can't wait for the dessert, we hear it's a different cobbler every evening, looking forward to that.

I do get what others mean by not really making a dinner meal out of the offerings, based on what I have seen. If you have big eaters, like DH and DF's husband.

Honestly, "making a meal out of" the club level offerings is so subjective. For us, I guess we technically do "make a meal out of it". However, that doesn't mean dumping a whole tray of food on our plates....

None of us are big eaters, especially our 6 and 9 year olds. DH and I often order just appetizers at restaurants and sometimes even share those. For breakfast in CL, it is almost TOO much food for us...as DH and I don't even typically eat breakfast. My girls are quite happy with some fruit and cereal or a bagel, as that is what they get at home. If we have a big breakfast at home, it is usually for dinner...

At Disney, we typically do a TS lunch, and then have snacks in the lounge if we get a little hungry. But the appetizers in the evening are plenty of food for us, especially after a big lunch. For instance, at WL CL, a bowl of chili, some bread and veggies is a perfect meal!!

I honestly wish people would stop arguing over whether people "make a meal" out of the CL offerings or not, because it is so very subjective. One persons meal may be another's snack...and vice versa.

NOW, when you get to the discussion of those people who do empty out an entire tray of food, when there are others standing there to eat as well....well, you just have bad manners there, and I think (and hope) that's more of the exception than the rule. I have not witnessed this type of behavior myself, but when I read about it, I am always

We have never intended CL as a meal replacement, however different appetites at different times have made that happen from time to time. On our recent stay at WL CL the food was so hearty, that it did indeed become dinner a few times. (and it was not because we made pigs of ourselves or anything, the food is just very filling) For example: Buffalo chili and honey chili glazed chicken wings were served one night IN ADDITION to all of the other appetizers. Also beef stew, or seafood chowder. Always a fresh berry cobbler in the evening. Their blueberry cobbler was one of the most delicious things I have ever put in my mouth.

Sounds like I should try out WL CL! YC has had the same appetizers (pot stickers, quesadillas, crab rangoon, bacon wrapped scallops) for years now & WL's sound way more yummy than YC's! And fruit cobbler?! Instead of just the same cookies, brownies & mousse?

We want to be on the 5th floor, and full balcony, but does anyone know if these rooms exist near the EPCOT entrance? Can anyone recommend anything else I should request? Thanks so much!
I have stayed @ BC (non club) & YC (club level) many times. I can say all club rooms @ both resorts are on the 5th floor, except the deluxe rooms & some suites. And you need to take the key- controlled main elevators to access the 5th floor, so your room request should be "near elevator". So no access to the "secret" Epcot entrance, except from the lobby.

Can't answer about the full balcony. If no one answers here, ask on the Y&B Club thread. Teena, who posts there, is a greeter @ BC & will have an answer for you. Plus lots of posters there have stayed club level & will probably know.

I don't think people were arguing over whether of not CL can be a meal replacement. They are just giving their opinion. If someone asks a question that's what they are going to get is lots of different opinions.

1. BREAD: Dinner rolls with butter
2. SALAD: Veggies/dip, salad offerings, marinated olives
3. CHEESE: cheeses on assorted breads and crackers with dried fruit and hummus
4. ENTREES: pork potstickers and conch fritters each with their own dipping sauces
5. WINE
6. FRUIT: with cut up fresh fruit - apples, oranges and bananas
7. KIDS OFFERINGS: Additional make your own PB&J on rolls and apple slices dipped in caramel sauce

Then, later :

8. DESSERT: Mini assorted desserts
9. CORDIALS
(We took dessert and cordials back to our room to eat/drink while watching illuminations from the balcony)

You don't think that's a meal?
First, I wasn't being sarcastic-I was just simply stating my opinion.
I don't think most people take the R.O. offer & use it as a meal replacement. Could you? I guess? We go to dinner @ were rarely even there for appetizers, & occas. are there for the evening cordials & such.
My DD has a severe peanut/tree nut allergy, so that isn't an option & as I said, I have two teenage kids, who eat more than a large adult.
Each concierge lounge has different offerings & I just can't see using the CL as a meal replacement. For breakfast? Sure. We enjoy going out to the restaurants in Epcot & spend time enjoying Disney.
That's just my opinion as others have also stated.

They had the same cookies, brownies, but instead of mousse or cupcakes, it was the magic cookie bars. This was the same every night but the homemade fresh berry cobbler was different each night. There was blueberry, strawberry, peach, mixed berry, and then it was repeated. The same appetizers you mentioned above are every night as well at WL, but in addition, there is always a big pot of chili, stew, or chowder. Oh and one night there was a rice dish that had seafood and sausage in it. Very tasty. It was just hearty food that did not take much and you were full! I felt like the breakfast at BC CL was a lot better, but WL's evening offerings were just amazing.

Yep, it worked for us for dinner a few nights as well. After a big, sit-down lunch, just snacking at dinner was plenty for us. Now, my 16-year old usually needed something additional from Capn Cooks (burger, grilled cheese, etc), but he's constantly eating these days
