It's a work in progress but I'll keep plugging away!
WDWKOOK has a ton of WL-CL pics on the WL thread, I'm sure she would be willing to share.

And the 1st post of the thread looks great and easy to navigate!

Erika, thanks so much for doing this! Everything looks great!

We never thought we'd get into CL, but in 2009, we booked a SV room at the GF and we're upgraded to the RPC, and since then, when the money has allowed, we've been staying CL. It's one of those things when you ask yourself, do I really need this? The answer is clearly no, but it's such a nice little luxury to have. For us, it's really not about the food, or the seclusion, or the IPO (we really enjoy making our own plans!), but about the CMs. We've met so many wonderful ones so far! At BWI, Jackie, Scott, Anita, JJ and Jese come to mind, as does Chip and Jill at BC. It's so nice to come back to your room and have a new CM friend ask what the lines were like at Space Mountain, or ask if we liked The Brown Derby, or tell us they've been working on changing that reservation from 7 to 8. It's that special treatment that gets us to spend our dollars on CL. They take the time to learn your name and your interests and even have a pretty good idea of what your itinerary is. That's special to us.

So far, we've stayed CL at the GF (RPC), AKL, BWI, and BC. So far, our favorite, hands down has been BWI, though BC is a close second. At BWI, we of course love the CMs, but we also love the spaciousness of the lounge, and how they never seem to run out of offerings. The lounge is also BEAUTIFUL. It's a treat to watch some of the Illuminations fireworks from the lounge balcony, and in our stays, we've been lucky enough to score a BoardWalk view from our room and I truly dint believe there's a better view at WDW. I'm also obsessed with the moon-themed turndown cards they use there. I actually framed a full set and hang them by our bed.

This summer, we are trying YC CL and can't wait! I'd love to hear Regatta Club stories!

Thanks again Erika!

BoardWalk Club Level

Just a couple of corrections/updates:

OLD INFO:
The Concierge Lounge "Innkeeper's Club " hours of service are: Continental Breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m.; Refreshments from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Tea and Sweets from 3 to 4:30 p.m.; Wine and Cheese Selections from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and Cordials and Desserts from 7 to 9 p.m.
The Garden Suites are designed for Honeymooners but can easily accommodate a family of four and are two stories.
The Concierge Lounge "Innkeeper's Club" hours of service are:
Doors open at 6:30am, for Coffee & Tea Service
Continental Breakfast from 7:00am to 10:30am;
Refreshments from 11:30am to 4pm;
Wine and Cheese Selections from 5:00pm to 7:00pm;
Cordials and Desserts from 8:00pm to 10pm
Doors closed at 10pm each night

The Garden Suites are designed for Honeymooners and groups of 2. Parties of 4 are no longer booked in the Garden Suites.

Also, FYI
There are a Total of 57 Concierge Room
The 14 Garden Suites are on the 1st Floor in the "Quiet/Garden" area.
5 Deluxe Rooms are on the 3rd Floor (Two above Flying Fish and 3 above Kouzzina's) (BoardWalk Views)
5 Deluxe Rooms are on the 4rd Floor (Two above Flying Fish and 3 above Kouzzina's) (BoardWalk Views)
The Steeplechase (Presidential) and the Sonora (Vice-Presidential) Suites are on the 4th Floor (BoardWalk Views)
4 Two Bedroom Suites (NO BoardWalk Views)
ONLY 8 Standard Club WITH BoardWalk Views
Leaving 19 Standard Club with Garden (Quiet Side) View.

One more note: 3rd Floor Deluxe Rooms (Total 5) are not behind the Security door and will require either a stairway access or a elevator ride up to the 4th Floor Lounge. There are 3 rooms on the 4th Floor (1-Deluxe, 2-Standards) that are also outside of the 4th Floor Security Door, just around the corner from the 4th Floor Check-In Desk.

These limitations sometimes make it difficult to meet multiple room requests. NO rooms are near an elevator. Few rooms in the standard catagory have a BoardWalk View.

Thank you, I have been reading the old thread.

I do have information for the AKL CL guests only for the booking of Sunrise Safari. It has changed to being paid in advance. I booked this and have heard from other CL guests who have booked it that they share the same experience. You still have a 48 hour cancellation policy.

Our stay at AKV-CL begins on 3/28, so excited!

And yea, me!!! I'm the first new post!

Thanks for all the info...we will be staying at BC in a few weeks. If anything looks different, I'll be sure to take pics for you.
Thank you so much! Would love to get some new pics and new info to keep this updated!!

Other than that, looks awesome!!!

I won't be at Sugarloaf until August, but will be glad to grab pics.
Thank you so much! I will update that right now.
Can't wait to have new photos to add, thanks!

Great! I had a feeling that information was outdated. I appreciate your help!
