It's a 1/2 marathon in November. I believe it is run at night, not early morning like most Run Disney Events.

So, I have been hanging onto our GF reservation for quite some time, with the contemplation of doing AKL instead....but GF is winning out this time...you can remove me from the August list.

We'll get to AKL someday.

Also contemplating an AKL club stay. And I have to say those afternoon snacks are way better than the ones offered where we've stayed (Poly, CR, BC, WL). We are used to just the goldfish-type things and that's it. So AKL also has cheese/veggies/pb&j sandwiches?! That's really nice.

Couple questions about AKL Club ... we just watched the videos of it and it looks impressive actually.

But I am wondering a couple things a) are there limits to the amount of food you can eat ? b) are there limits to the number of alcoholic beverages ? c) can you bring any or all of either snacks or beer/wine back to your room ???

Maybe there is a sticky on this, but I figured you fine people would be able to answer in a hurry.

TIA !

no, no, and yes.

These are meant as snack, not dinner, and the drinks are like a pre happy our before you go out, and yes I have taken cheeses and beer to my fridge and had for dessert after my return.

Ah nice, that's kind of what I was wondering, its not meant to essentially become an "all inclusive" I know that, the food makes that pretty apparent, although I am pretty sure I could survive on crackers and cheese because I LOVE them, not that I would try with so many other wonderful foods at WDW though and some of the other stuff I have seen, like turkey patties and fish cakes etc, a few of those and it looks like lunch And I have repeated seen people here posting about eating breakfast and lunch in the lounge ...

It does seem like you can eat a pretty full breakfast there, But I was seriously wondering if you would be able to grab like 4 or 5 beers and bring them back to our room for my wife and I to split or what have you ... or if there is someone working there who will tell you 'no' or who monitors how much you are taking etc ...

....while I agree with you that the breakfasts are pretty filling and can get you going til' way past lunch, I don't think the offerings are very filling to suffice as a lunch/dinner. It's up to the individual as to whether they would feel 'embarrassed' [ or otherwise] if they were to remove too much food as they were leaving the lounge area. I've never been approached by anyone - of course, I've never taken an exorbitant amount of food either,so.....

They'll give you as many beers as you want, and are constantly refilling the food.

When we stayed CL at WL, the CM's knew DH's beer of choice well and one day after coming home late from the parks we noticed that 6 beers had been placed in the fridge.

The next day, one of the awesome CM's said to him "they figured he wouldn't be back in time and wanted to make sure he was supplied"

So Kim, judging by one of your previous threads, it appears that you MAY be going...Does this lead us to believe it's in that month? Or do your other comments about the wine, CL videos have us to believe that you'll hopefully be going during F&W....Im already past my 11 months window, but I was going to try n get BCV if possible for the 7 month, If not then a shot at AKV again...Hopefully yoy hubby will want to go....I'm contemplating either Fri. Oct 31st after work or Saturday Early morning - thru the following Sunday....We don't want to miss out on the X-mas decorations, & certainly not Osbornes Spectacle of Lights ether.. Heres for some for ya..
