I like food to be prepaid, that is what makes CL and DP so interesting for me.
the IPO service would be a nice service as well

but not this year
too far away to go to WDW every year
I think CL goes fine with the regular dining plan. But it would be way overkill on deluxe dining. I would use the lounge for breakfast, my counter service credit for lunch in the park, back to the lounge for afternoon snacks and/or apps at 5:00, then a nice sitdown dinner around 7:30 PM.

We had LV CL with 2 queens and a daybed, but our room was over the back entrance looking towards the Boardwalk. In order to get a SAB view you'll have to be down the hallway quite a long way, definitely a further walk for the lounge. Our room was only about 5 or 6 doors down from the lounge which worked great for our kids. :D My report with pictures should be on page 1

Welcome back . Congrats on booking a spring break trip. I'm sorry YC wasn't available, but yay on booking AKL CL . I'm getting close to booking AKL CL for a December trip, so I will be patiently waiting for all of your CL pics .

TigrLvsPooh,
I just read your detailed trip report and saw your pictures of the YC CL lounge. (Did you ever find out who the members of the British royal family were that were staying there when you were there?) My family was hoping to have a view of Stormalong Bay, so it looks like my chances of getting a room with 2Qs and a daybed are small. There are only four of us, and we could manage OK with the 2Qs, but we were hoping for a daybed. I'm hoping there's enough space in the room for a rollaway, just in case.

We did find out! But now I can't remember who they were. That whole experience really was a hoot! I will never forget a team of people coming into the lounge to set a table for them with those white tablecloths and silverware! But we'll never be ROYALS...

We used a roll away at YC a few years ago for my mom. It wasn't terrible, mainly we just lost that area near the sliding door where we usually setup our suitcases. But it did fit.

We love daybeds too for our family of 4 because my boys do not like sleeping together. Many times we've actually taken cushions and comforters and made a bed on the floor for our youngest because he flat out refused to get in bed with his brother. I'm requesting bunkbeds at AKL next month, I have no idea what our chances are for those but I think the boys would prefer them. I need to do some research on the CL rooms there, it has been so many years since we've stayed I don't even know what requests to make.

Welcome back Erika!

Does anyone know if GF CL offers mimosas? I remember reading that one of the CL's does, but I can't remember which one.

And, while I'm at it, here are our mini reviews of Poly CL from August 2013:

Our Poly CL TPV Room Review

Our Poly CL Review and Food Pics

We stayed right before all the construction at the Poly started so the view from our TPV room is probably very different now...

We were in YC CL in May and Poly CL in August! Almost the same!

Thanks for sharing your reviews! I will add those in!

Oh boy, I can hardly wait. 1st time staying CL! We have BC reserved for early June.

We are celebrating my special needs daughter's High School graduation! It's a very special occasion. Should I contact them and let them know our celebration for her and also, to let them know she has a seizure response service dog, a very handsome 78 lb Golden-Doodle traveling with us?

I would love to see any Trip reports from CL at the BC.

We are booked with a water view, so will that be either the lake or SAB?
Do all CL rooms have full balconies?
I so want to just sit out there and enjoy the view with a beverage and relax with my lovely wife while our daughter naps in the afternoon.
Any rooms have better balconies or views than others?
Are there corner rooms that give a little more room than other rooms?

And anything else any of you want add.

Thanks for all your thoughts and comments, I look forward to reading this thread as it grows and then being able to contribute after.

YO

I don't think I've seen mimosas out, but I'm pretty sure they do have champagne in the evening. I remember one evening a cast member offered a strawberry to add to my aunt's glass of champagne!

We are thinking about adding a few nights at AKL CL during our August vacation. We've never stayed CL at AKL and I think the kids would love it. I'm somewhat confused though with the CL rooms/views. If I look on the WDW website, it seems as though all of the CL rooms have an Arusha Savanna view. Is this true? If so, I'm puzzled as to why there is very little, if any, price difference between the Arusha Savanna bunk bed rooms and Standard CL rooms. Thanks!
