IPO doesn't have any more of a chance to get ADRs than you do and as far as I know, they cannot book prior to 180 days. With that said, you can always give them a list of ADRs you want and have them try to book at the 180 days, but also look yourself as having another person looking can only help. Good luck.

I believe all on site resorts book 180 plus 10 days ahead, unless it has recently changed.

They can do 180+10, but they can't start booking prior to the 180 day mark like the OP was asking.

We are staying in a BWI deluxe club level room from 4/26-5/5. I wouldn't consider spending that kind of $$$ to spend 10 days in the middle of a construction site.

Since earlier posts mention the refurb doesn't behin until 5/12 is it safe to think that the same level of service and offerings will be made available?

Emailed BWI CL concierge regarding April- May Stay

So my nerves got the best of me. I emailed the BWI CL desk this morning asking about the upcoming refurbishment and if it will effect our stay 4/26-5/5. I asked about the offerings in the lounge and a sample pool activity schedule too. Here is the response I received (rather quickly):

Thank You for your email. What I found out about the rehab is that it won't be starting until 5/12 thru 6/17. They have not let anyone book for those days so their is no inconvenience. So you are fine. The Lounge starts to serve their Continental Breakfast from 7:00am to 10:30am which is whole fruits, cut up fruit, cereals, milk, juices ,water and soft drinks, coffee and tea. it varies every day on different breads, muffins, crisonts, and their are also hard boiled eggs, oatmeal and yogurt. They close for an hour for clean up and reset up for lunch snacks which varies from day to day sometimes yogurt covered pretzels, chips & dips, swedish fish & trail mix. They close at 4:00pm and reopen at 5:00pm for veggie trays, dips and hummis, breads and cheese & fruit trays, also something that may be from either Kouzzina'a or the Flying Fish. They also put out the beer & wine. They closes this at 7:00pm and reopen at 8:00pm until 10:00pm with the delights and something if you want to have a night cap. Of course this is all subject to change. It may be something different by the end of April; But it gives you an Idea of what to expect. I have attached the activity schedule for Jan. Please let us know how we may assist you further. Thank You

That is correct and the experience I had with my upcoming trip. I was not able to get the BOG adr I wanted by no fault of the IPO staff. People going before me simply had booked it all up.

Later, more tables ended up opening up and I got what I wanted just fine.

The IPO is just there to assist you in making your adrs, but they cannot guarantee you'll get everything that you want. It's a great service (I love not having to get up at 4am PST to book my adrs) but it's not a skip ahead in the line service, alas.

I'm debating:
WL CL (either deluxe or standard room)
BLT 1 bedroom Lakeview
BLT studio Lakeview with DDP
Poly CL
CR with DDP

We already have splits planned for FW, BLT, AKV Kidani, in that order, this would be for the last part of the trip. What do you think would be the easiest for young kids? We will be spending a decent amount of time at the resort by that point, I'm assuming. I figured you all would know the best about the CL part of it
I would go with the Poly CL. Being on the monorail is so wonderful with little ones. And another perk of the poly is that the TTC is within walking distance. Easy access to Epcot isn't to be overlooked.

I agree . We love the Poly and think it's very convenient to not only MK, but also Epcot as this poster mentioned. Plus it's just an overall beautiful resort, IMO.

Our welcome gift was different at Atrium CL this time. The box is the same size and set up as the Poly CL gift I received in April/May.

Is the contemporary picture also a big piece of chocolate? Looks cool.

That is the same thing we got at the BWI in September. I think it is very sad that there really aren't many differences between the resorts now. It started years ago when the pool bars and lounges started serving the same drinks, then generic bedding and now the same CL welcome gift. Maybe they are trying to stop the split stays by making all the resorts the same.

psac, Yes the picture is chocolate.

I'm glad you got a response and the refurb won't effect your trip . I was wondering what was going on at BWI as I tried pricing out a 4 night stay at the end of May/beginning of June and wasn't finding any availability. Thanks for posting this information .
