I got one a few weeks ago.. There was nothing when I booked, but they were checking for me..about a month later, they sent me a "congrats" email.. I got dinner at BOG

I've never used IPO as I like to make my own ADRs, but it wouldn't hurt to have them looking along with you since BoG is sometimes hard to get. Sometimes IPO has success and sometimes not, but it never hurts to have someone else looking just in case you miss something. Good luck.

I haven't tried to get BOG reservations. I booked our trip late when we went this past Fall.

I will say this. I'm sure that CL tries very hard to please all their guests, but if you would like something very certain, such as one of these coveted BOG reservations, I would book it yourself. They don't have special pull making ADR's. I do know that they can put you on a cancellation list. I would get up first thing and book it if possible if this is something that rates at the top of importance.
Best of Luck!

I didn't use IPO to book my ADRs, I booked mine online first thing and booked my BOG dinner day and time first before any others and I got the time and day I wanted.

I am a bit of a control freak and would rather do it myself.

I think the week we are going may be a slower week or something. I was able to get all my ADR times and book DVC studio CL at AKV without a problem despite hearing that others are having a hard time getting what they want especially with BOG. So I am not sure what is going on. I didn't think our week was a slow week by any means because it is during Spring Break weeks here in Indiana and I am sure there are other states with similar Spring Break times.

We are going 3/28-4/5/2014

A couple questions....

Can anyone tell me if the BCR lounge is currently providing bottles of water to take into the parks? It wasn't in 2011 when we were there last but I thought I'd read that they do now. Thanks for any info...

Also, has anyone been to a resort when the CL was being refurbished? We will be there in September so I don't know if the new lounge will be done then or not. I understand they use the Presidential Suites when that happens. How is it? Would the Presidential Suite be at least as big as the current lounge at BCR?

Thanks!

Does the RPC at GF have champagne? If so, is it just during the afternoon tea, or is it available any other time? I thought I saw this somewhere but cannot find the information now.

I haven't booked yet but there was still availiability as of yesterday in SL and RPC. Also, I read that GF has two pools, Courtyard and Beach area pool. Is there a quiet pool also? TIA

Thanks for the information. We stayed BWI CL the past two trips and I loved it there. But, I've always wanted to stay RPC at the GF and with the 35% off and a stay of only three days makes it possible.

No, there is not a quiet pool. The courtyard pool and beach pool are the only two pools at the GF.

You are going to love RPC. We've never stayed BWI CL so I can't compare the two, but I think RPC is amazing.

Thanks Mickeynut1 for the information. It's been over 20 years since I've stayed at the GF although we visit it every trip for dinner.

Does anyone know the email address to contact the AKL CL? I tried the email on the first page and it didn't work. Or would it better to call?

The link is chopped up on page one, so if you used it that might be why it didn't work.

Also, for some reason, the "m" separates from the com

If you type it all out, it should work. The dis won't let it be typed for some reason Good luck!
