You're too funny about the blonde comments . I'll try to convey what I want to say and I hope it makes sense .

Make sure you don't delete the [QUOTE] that starts and ends the post you are quoting. In the post you just did where you quoted me, it looks like you just deleted the [QUOTE] at the beginning of my post (which should read [QUOTE=mickeynut1....and some numbers]). For KOOK's post that you quoted above, it looks like you did the same thing, except deleted the [QUOTE] at the end. That's where I had the hardest time when I first started multi-quoting......I would always delete something at the beginning or end that needed to stay. I hope that makes sense.....if not, let me know and I'll try to explain it a different way if I can .

BC is the family's favorite (although I DO love it for the location)-The lounge is small, but we love the relaxed feel of BC. (We're from the shore area) I love the way you can walk right thru to the International Gateway & go to Epcot.

Poly was also a wonderful stay. They have a lot of food choices there & the lounge is bigger & more crowded at times.
My kids loved the volcano pool & the CM's were great!
The only thing I didn't like was the longhouses. I don't know why.. (Ducking for the haters)
We had a screaming child right next door & I don't think we slept for days. We should've said something, but we didn't want to move.

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!!!!!
That's great to hear- thanks so much. We are still over 100 days out, but I am starting the process already. It's fun to try something new for this trip!

YC CL Standard Rooms

Hi! Anyone have knowledge of YC CL Standard rooms?
I found a decent rate for CL at the Yacht Club with the new early winter discount. It was only $40 more per night than the original resort rooms I was looking at. That would definitely be a good value for my family. They are standard rooms though. Does anyone know where the CL Standard rooms would be located? Still with potential parking lot/roof views?
Any help would be appreciated! I can't decide between staying at YC and enjoying the resort experience or saving the money and going with AoA or Pop and do some extras. YC is the only (non DVC) resort I haven't stayed at.
We've also done CL at Poly and AKL~
Thanks!

The YC CL is the fifth floor, which covers less footprint than the other floors. Roughly speaking, the standard view rooms are the ones that look over the entrance side (car port, entryway). Water view rooms look toward the lagoon/Boardwalk. We've stayed YC CL standard view many times, and were perfectly happy. You get a full balcony, and we've been able to see Wishes in the distance from our balcony. But if you would be super bummed by view of car entrance area, you might want to avoid it.

We loved YC!

Personally, I enjoy the balcony, but the view doesn't matter much. My priority is to be close to the lounge. Standard rooms look towards the parking lot side of the hotel. (as opposed to facing the pool/lake/Epcot). The rooms are across the hall from each other. The view usually includes trees and landscaping, like the view from most condos. We don't end up using the balcony much, even when we have a great view.

We use the lounge when we want to relax or have a snack. With extended family, being able to meet up in the lounge is great. It's also great if part of your family wants to sleep. I find it more open than a balcony. Plus, they serve yummy treats!

You also get the extra staff. It's just so much fun being welcomed right away, and bypassing the check-in line. The CL staff at YC was super nice. You're going to love it.

All of Disney’s Deluxe resorts offer concierge level service for an additional fee. In recent years, WDW has preferred the term “Club Level” as there is also a Lobby Concierge, which has caused a bit of confusion from time to time.

The non-Disney owned Swan & Dolphin Resorts no longer offer Concierge or Club Level service.

Thanks to KatMark - "Coronado Springs Resort: Cabanas 9B is now “Club Service” for convention guests. When there is no convention being held at the CSR, the rooms in Cabanas 9B are available to regular resort guests (however, they do not have use of the Club Level services).


The Itinerary Planning Office (IPO) will not have your address and phone number if you book through a travel agent or online. You should call them and let them know you are coming. Most of us like to make contact with IPO as soon as we make our resort reservations.


Please do not contact the IPO until you have a confirmed reservation.

When sending an email, you should receive a generic response within several hours. This will let you know your email was received and that someone will be contacting you soon. Within a day or 2, you should receive a personalized email response from a member of the IPO team.

IPO is available to answer the phones 9:00am to 6:00pm Eastern. (Thanks, PNO4TE)

TIPPING GUIDELINES

Tipping Guideline: Thank you to TheRustyScupper, for the following information (9/22/08)

1) Concierge (and Front Desk) CM's can be fired for taking cash tips.
2) They are supposed to refuse up to three times. If you ask a fourth time, they take it, but, they must immediately turn it over to a manager
3) The tip goes into a fund, and the manager buys donuts or coffee for all.
4) If they do not turn in the cash, it can be immediate termination.

NOTE: They can accept gifts of up to $75 value (like candy, doll, etc).

I've been told that they appreciate small gifts (especially edible gifts!) that represent where you come from, for example, I'm from Massachusetts, so perhaps something cranberry-based. I'd try to bring some lobsters, but I think that'd be a bit tricky to get through the airport security.

Here's a link to the "Club Level Lounge Photos" thread started by CR Resort Fan 4 Life:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1944096

...but you can feel free to post pictures here too!
yes you do have the use of the club lobby at CSR if you are staying in the Business Class even if you are not at a convention

We are staying CL for the first time. We will be at CR Atrium CL as the second hotel of a split stay and I was wondering if we need to do online check in or is there something we need to do or a certain place to go when we arrive? Thanks!

I know there's been some concern around the CL service at BC, but I've just had a great experience and wanted to share.

I called yesterday morning to finalize our itinerary, and while I was on the phone, I asked our IPO what we should do with a few surprise packages I was planning for the kids. Wasn't sure whether I should have them delivered to the hotel, then put in our room after we arrive, or just pack them and bring them with us. I explained that they were birthday surprises - we couldn't justify Disney Florist with the $$$ we were spending on CL already, and so I'd planned to bring my own surprises and somehow unpack them while DH was entertaining the kids around the resort. But instead, she offered to have one of them do this for us, so we'll check in, drop everything off in the room, and then they'll pull one CM to set everything up in the room for us while we all get to run around the resort (or head to the park), so that it'll be ready when we get back. LOVE this, and it's exactly the kind of Disney magic I was hoping for when I booked CL.

Very happy, and feeling much more excited about our CL stay.

Just make sure you have linked both reservations to your MDE.

I like to do online check-in for all but it is not necessary.

For Atrium club let them know via email the time of your arrival and mode of transportation. Outside is a person with a clipboard you can inform of your CL arrival. They will either walk you to check in desk or to a person that will escort you to elevator to 12th floor.

I have stayed there before and have a res for 1/5 if any other Q's.

I must say I am liking the CL already... Poly CL already replied to me re DD's allergies that they were noted on our reservations and that a week before our arrival they would contact the chef. And that every day we would be walked through what is safe for her. Love Disney. They make her allergy seem like a bonus, not a detriment!
