I'm excited about our first stay in a CL room, but this doesn't exactly give me warm fuzzies about the personal care one would expect from CL service.
I got pretty much the same thing with my CL arrangements (we check in on Saturday). I had faxed in things months ago. They also didn't read all the pages where I was requesting they set up a photo session.

I'm hoping the actual trip goes much better than the pre-planning service they have provided.

We weren't sure about it at first but once we figured out the sofa it worked perfectly for our 2 year old.

We loved the boardwalk view and the 2 year old didn't mind the noise from illuminations as long as we were inside.

Patsy was our housekeeper for the week and she was incredible and made a couple fantastic towel animals my daughter slept with and wanted to bring home!

We really liked the club level offerings. For us the best parts were dessert and then beer, soda, bottled water, and crushed ice. My husband was thrilled with the yuengling and I was happy with all the diet cokes I could drink! My toddler loved to just stand next to the ice bucket eating the ice! (Who knows? She loves cold stuff!)

We figured out we probably spent about $20 on food for the 2 year old during our stay since we were able to get so many things she would eat in the lounge. This was truly awesome.

For us, club level was worth it and we are trying to figure out how to swing it again next year but we're looking at Magic Kingdom resorts so the pricing is harder to stomach.
Glad you liked BWI CL. We've never stayed there, but it's on my list to try . As far as monorail resorts, we are trying CR CL and Poly CL in December so I can't comment on those personally, but I have read many great reviews on both. If the GF is doable, RPC (main building CL) is amazing .

We have a CL stay next week with YC, we have had the same experience, nothing noted, not answering all questions, and it numbered all 3. After the third email to get the last question answered, they got snippy! We live BWI CL, but they were booked, now I see why! Not too sure about this trip, but it won't ruin it that's for sure. Going back to handling it all myself. Canned responses are obvious, and don't answer everything!

Just a little FYI: the same IPO handles Boardwalk, Yacht Club & Beach Club. So you would possibly have had the same experience if you were at Boardwalk this trip.

I'm sorry you didn't get the service you have previously tho. I really think it depends on which CM you get. And don't forget, the in hotel CMs are different if from the IPO. We were at YC club level just 2 weeks ago & had the same great experience we always have. CMs were all friendly & helpful. Enjoy your vacation!!

Please help me choose.....

Considering CR CL TPV vs CR ToweR TPV. I'm having a tough time choosing. We can do the CR tower TPV with MVMCP and cabanas 2 days OR CR CL TPV and forget the MVMCP and cabanas.

Which would you do? I'm having a hard time deciding which will be the best for us. We are 3 generation family with 2 rooms, 4 adults and 2 children, a 3 year old and 10 month infant.


TIA

I would really hate to give up MVMCP, but given those exact choices I would stay CL.

I would definitely go with CL. It may be too cold to swim in December and you may not want to use the cabana anyway. The lounge is a great place to relax and meet up with the rest of your family. A couple hours in a cabana vs having access to the lounge every day. With the ages of your group I think you would get much more use out of the lounge than a cabana. With the money you save on breakfast alone maybe you can still fit in MVMCP. Good luck with your decision.

I tried the MVMCP when dd was 11. Really 7pm is late for kids. By 10 we were tired and went home. The parade was nice BUT a 10 mo old and 3yr will be asleep anyways. I would do CL and enjoy some tlc!

The views of MK are awesome from the lounge
