Quick question---other than the CL DVC rooms at AKL is there another way to book CL w/DVC points? I keep debating buying but I like CL too much. Unfortunely come next June, we will be a family of 5 not 4+1 per disney, so will be limited in room choices.

What are the kids' options at Boma for dinner? Trying to figure out if it'd be a good dinner option or not. DS6 and DD2, rather picky at times...

Boma is a buffet, so the kids have the run of the food. I find this helps with picky eaters. When we were there in Jan, the 'kids section' had Mac & cheese, meatballs, Mickey ravioli, maybe chicken nuggets? There was also salad, fresh fruit, side of wildebeast, hummus, bread, soup, roast chicken. Not sure the 'pickiness level' but my kids did great. Of course we like buffets for the opposite reason-- my kids are picky--they won't eat off the kids menu most places.

I guess I am not understanding the question....
But you can pay CASH and get a CL room, or you can use DVC (points) and get CL.

Its much harder to do on points though right? My understanding is there are very few DVC CL rooms that book at the 11 month mark. For our dates they were sold out in less than a day when the window opened vs. there still being plenty for cash reservations..?

It all depends on what time of year you are going, I have booked CL with DVC at the 7th month a number of times.

That's cause I wasn't clear . Right now I can pay cash and get a regular room w CL privileges. If we buy into DVC, I can (hope/pray, etc) book at exactly 11 months and get a standard or value studio w CL privileges. Once DS turns 3 we will no longer be 4+1 for room size. So we will need at least a 1bedroom. And to book that w/DVC is nigh impossible, right? Or is there another way to get my CL fix, my AKL fix, and not sell a child?

I think I understand your question. "The Disney Collection" allows members to book WDW Resorts using DVC points (and a $95 transaction fee). BEFORE AKL had DVC, you could indeed book a room at AKL using points. In fact, when we first bought DVC, that was our first stay -- AKL-CL! And we were on the 5th floor because those rooms were Deluxe and the DVC construction hadn't started yet.

That is no longer the case since AKL now has DVC. So in my long-winded way of saying this: the only way to use DVC points to book Club Level at AKL/AKV is to book those coveted 6th floor rooms through DVC!

WDW Resorts which you can book using points (and $95) are: CBR, CSR, FW Resort & Campground, GF (although that too will change when the DVC construction is done there), Poly, POR/POFQ, and Yacht Club.

Is AKL the only DVC resort w/ CL?

Here's my dilemma. My MIL wants to come w/us next June for baby boys bday. Which is fine. But I REFUSE to stay off site in the summer. I hate offsite as it is. And I really like CL.

That sums it up for me thanks!! Hmmmm Poly? Not sure I can do that. Although we could fit in one room.....

ETA- now that I have the Oct trip planned I'm obsessing about trips 3 down the road--Sorry guys

Late January - more popular than I had thought I guess? Its marked as 'Value Season 1' so I thought it would be relatively easy.
