GV CL isn't that much more at the YC so I will book that when available, if it's not I am happy in a standard view. You may want to upgrade if you spend a lot of time on the balcony and the view is important to you.
Thanks for the reply. I am going to put in a request for another view. My sister & I love sitting out on the balcony in the evening to unwind & relax.

I just upgraded out Poly TPV to Poly TPV CL... We've never stayed CL before, so any advice/insights/etc are appreciated!

And- my DD has severe peanut/tree nut allergies-- so any food allergy experiences with CL are even more appreciated!

Mickeynut1:
Thanks so much for explaining this to me! I'm so impressed with your multi-quoting..i'm going to strive to be one of the best CL multi-quoters there are! haha

Since you already know how to quote one person, multi quoting is not that much more difficult:

On another note......how exciting that your trip is coming up soon . I hope you have a great time at BWI. I have read a lot of great reviews about BWI CL and would love to hear your opinion of it when you get back .
I am so excited about this BWI trip!! I'm not very good at change I usually stay at the BC and my fav is GF

[QUOTE=WDWKOOK;49757038]My multi-quoting (Mickey) ears were burning

You asked a good question. Multi-quoting isn't intuitive and I remember many years ago PMing someone who had multi-quoted to find out how they did it. It seemed magical. Now it's your turn to multi-quote mickeynut1 and me

WDWKOOK:
I hope I can do multi-quoting justice!
Figured i'd practice and see how I could do on the computer

Has anyone stayed in one of the 2bdrm suites at BWI? I've checked out pics on the Dis Boards, but i'd love to hear from someone who has personal experience!

I'm doing Poly CL too with the discount! We stayed once before 2 years ago and we were spoiled The lounge is awesome, especially for fireworks since they pipe in the music and it has the perfect view. Go early to get seats and snacks/drinks (including their wonderful alcoholic punch). We don't have any bad allergies here but I do know that there's always CMs there when there is food out so ask them about the offerings. Also, talk with the concierge when they contact you before the trip and when you check in so they know your dietary needs.

We were upgraded to a BWI 2BR Suite in June 2012. I think it was room 4205? We loved the suite! Gorgeous and very spacious! It was a pretty decent walk from the lounge, but it had an excellent view of Illuminations, SE and the Eiffel Tower in France.

Let me know if you have any specific questions and maybe I can help.

I thank that is a good decision, you will be much happier with a GV or water view.

Congrats on booking CL you will love it. Just be aware that is hard to go back to non CL so be prepared to always stay CL.

Make sure you speak to the chef to see what would be safe for your DD to eat. The Chef at the Poly is almost always around. Also speak to IPO before you go and let them know of the allergy and they can put you in touch with the chef before you even get there. Calling IPO is much more effective than emailing them. It's been a couple of years since we stayed at the Poly and I don't remember if they put out any peanut butter and jelly roll ups or sandwiches, but I have seen them at other resorts so it's best to find out ahead of time what to expect.

Thanks- I emailed them today so that I can be on their radar. I'll definitely call as the date approaches. I just told my DH over dinner-- I handle all things WDW with my mini-planner/DD-- and he's excited by CL too. Fingers crossed that my DD will get all sorts of Disney magic this trip! It's our last "big" (i.e. pull her out of school for a week!) trip for a while...

I'd love to have some of the views you mentioned. I'm not sure what other views are available for this room type?

We don't mind a far walk to the lounge. I usually send the Fam while I'm getting ready-lol!!

Did u take any pictures?
I know you said it was a far walk to the lounge, but how about to the buses or boat to DHS?
I was looking at pictures on the BWI information page & the room almost looked like it was a lockoff? What did u think?
Anything else you could tell me to pump me up 20 days before my trip, that would be awesome!!

My DD also has a severe Peanut/Tree but allergy. I informed IPO & they suggested I speak with the chef upon arrival.
Usually desserts are a no-no (as u know) & there were quite a few nights when they prepared something special for her to enjoy, which she was SO excited!
I like how when you make food reservations online, you can notify them of a food allergy & what it is..
Disney is so great about this!

Enjoy CL!! It's hard to turn back!!!!!

I can't help with the allergies, but I wanted to say congrats on upgrading to CL . We've never stayed CL at the Poly so I can't comment on that specific CL, but CL in general is great.....you're going to love it .

I'm glad you're excited.....you're going to have a great time . We've never stayed at BWI, but it's one I've always wanted to try. Since the rooms have been redone, I think they resemble the GF in a way .

That sounds like an awesome room .

samnbilly- I'm noticing lots of CL stays in your signature. What's been your favorite? I've done CL at WL and YC and am really having a difficult time settling on one for next year.
