I stayed at BWI in January. I'd booked a standard room, but was surprised with some "pixie dust" - an upgrade to a garden suite!!!

DH and I very much enjoyed the club lounge at BWI. He is a breakfast eater, and went to the continental breakfast. The cast members we met were just wonderful, and it was so nice to watch the Illuminations fireworks from the balcony.

I don't think we could probably afford to actually book a club level room, but if you can, I highly recommend BWI!!

Congrats on the great upgrade . Glad you enjoyed BWI CL. We've never stayed there, but I have read nothing but good things about the resort overall, as well as CL .

Nice work, Erika! We stayed at BWI CL last August to celebrate our DS's 3rd birthday and we're hooked We own DVC so most of our stays are at BWV but we splurged and I think we've created two monsters with our children because they talk about Innkeeper's Club like it's their second home

As Scott correctly pointed out, it's the CMs that make the experience so extraordinary. They were all so wonderful with the kids and the kids still talk about their "friends" at the BW. We're returning to the Innkeeper's Club this August to celebrate DS's 4th birthday. Can't wait!!!

Agreed on all points! Great work, Erika! BWI CL CMs are amazing! We'll be back in just 11 days - yay! Speaking of which, please let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to find answers during our stay!

Have a great trip!!! I'm jealous The kids had a really special bond with Tracey. They just loved her and could not wait to tell her about their day. Some days we would be in the parks and they would ask to go to the BWI to see Tracey Pete and Jackie are amazing as well! The kids loved the taffy and ate more than their fair share

I love this thread. I was wondering if you can post more pictures of the AKL club level rooms and the snack area. It's my dream resort and I'm hoping to stay there December 2015.

We are staying Club Level for our 2nd time in December. How often do people with standard rooms get upgraded to a suite?

I wish I had some recent ones to share with you! We haven't stayed CL at AKL in about five years. It was amazing though. If anyone has more recent AKL CL pics please PM them to me! THANKS!!!

Great job on this big undertaking. We are BWI-CL junkies that stay 2-3 times a year. Since the BWI -CL will be under renovation when we head back in May, we are staying YC-CL. We look forward to trying a new resort.

I love Pete (BWI CL) Such a funny and great guy. He helped me with some gift card issues last year when we checked in that probably would have made a lot of people crazy. He's always smiling.

Shakira (YC CL) is the best lounge castmember in history! She would see us coming down the hall and already have our drinks poured before we reached the lounge door!

You get so spoiled with all their genuine care and interest it makes other non-CL trips seem sort of lonely.
