Just one more question before we leave on Sunday. I bought some reusable water bottles to take with us. Can we fill them up with the lounges water in the morning and afternoon or would it be better to ship some bottled water to the resort and just leave the reusable ones at home?

The lounge staff at BC always handed us water bottles to take to the parks, but there were pitchers of water also. You could fill up your reusable bottles there?

Thanks Jenny, I'll plan on packing the bottles. They're around a 20oz size. All I drink is water and a lot of it. Oh and a lot of adult beverages too.

We will be staying at BWI club level later this month. Due to a medical condition I can only drink sugar free, non carbonated beverages. Will coffee and water be my only options? I have been able to purchase Vitamin Water Zero at some of the hotel gift shops on prior trips. Has anyone ever seen these types of beverages in the Lounge?

I don't recall seeing special drinks like that in the lounge. I think I've seen them in the frig case at the nearby Screen Door General Store. They also might sell them in the little shop that's actually in BWI.

It really isn't a big deal, he said he doesn't really care about it, I just thought it might be a nice perk of being CL and I would try for him. Not looking to complain, just wondered what others thought.
I think it is CM specific. At AKL Cl I was pregnant with horrible nausea. The only thing I could drink was ginger ale. I asked on our first night if by any chance they had some. The CM went to the back and came out with 2 or 3. So the next night I asked a different CM and he nicely said no, they didn't have any. I explained that the CM the night before went to the back and magically appeared with a couple. So he went to check and out he came with a couple more. So I would ask for it when you get there, perhaps you will have a better chance by talking directly to the CL CM's as opposed to the IPO CM's.

Help!

I have a std main building RPC room for one night followed by a deluxe king room for 2 nights. I put in a request for a king for the first night but IPO responded that I had booked a 2queen room. On the disney website it says 2q's or 1 king. I always thought they had a few kings std and the deluxe cost more because they have extra features (MK view, whirlpool or octagon room, etc).

Does anybody know of /or have stayed in a std main building king?

Thanks!

I would call central reservations to ask about the booking categories.
I've stayed there before, but never in a king.
