    I am trying to decide whether to book a club level room at AKL or an Arusha view. We have book Arusha view in the past. The reason we stay at AKL is for the animals. I don't want to give up a great view close to the animals. Any thoughts? Are there club level rooms with better views than others that we could request?

    Hated it. They stuck us on the ground floor. While it was nice to see some ducks come waddling past it was also not pleasant to watch out and see all of the carts moving trash about.

    Our place arrived 6 hours late so it was all they had left.

    I am super excited for our first CL stay at AKL. Can you tell me where the lounge is located, by an elevator? We requested our room to be close to the club lounge elevator. DH is a beer drinker, do they have beer out in the afternoon or just in the evening with the other adult beverages? Any other tips or info would be great!

    I was told when I changed my Arusha bunk bed room to a Standard Club room that all CL rooms have an Arusha view. I think it was $25.00 more to switch, so i booked the CL room. I am not guaranteed a bunk bed CL room, but I put a request in.

    I am not a DVC member, but read here on the DIS that if you book DVC AKL CL that you are not guaranteed a Savannah view, that you either get Savannah or a pool view room.

    Yum! Do all CL have mimosas or just AKL CL? We were looking at WL CL, but this could really change things.......

    I have... And loved it!! As a matter of fact we loved it so much we are headed back in april. We stayed first floor and had no problem with activity on the path outside the rooms. There was some separation from the path and our patio. Being on the first floor was important to us as it made it easy for one of us to go in and out of the room while we had children sleeping. I think that if I didn't have young children I would request 3 rd floor.

    I sold yc club to dh with a promise of bacon wrapped scallops and lobster salad. If we are staying there for 6 nights and they still offer those apps, do you think he will get to try those?

    WL CL took care of it after we arrived. You will have to check with them to see if they will do it before you arrive. Every CL does things a lil different. I'm thinking for my second DD's Sweet 16 in June, I will order thru the cake hotline prior to arrival for a cake to be delivered to CRT the morning of her birthday. My dilemma with this is how do I get the left overs back to our hotel room if we aren't heading back right after the meal?
    There is an official cake thread for ideas and help. I think I will check there with how to handle the left overs. :coffee:http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2912870&highlight=cakes

    I've stayed CL at GF, AKL, BWI and BC, and (sadly), have never seen mimosas. Now, these things change constantly, so don't go completely by me. I'm just telling you what I've seen.

    I asked this on the BC/YC thread, but thought I'd ask here too. I have seen several people say that they are greeted when they arrive and brought to the club level to check-in. How do they know you are coming? Or is it :wizard:

    This is our first stay at CL (WL). I am very much a control freak regarding our adr's. I am on the fence to do them myself or let IPO make them. I am working on the email packet they sent me. How has everyone's experience been with them letting IPO make their adrs

    Well hello fellow control freak. I too have a hard time letting go of control. That being said, I have had great luck with the different CL IPO's. Give them specifics (for instance hour to 2 hour time frame) and they pretty much get what you want if you request far enough out. I have also made many MANY changes after getting confirmations, so don't sweat it if you have to change things around. It's their job and I have never gotten the feeling that I have bothered them. Now, I haven't always gotten exactly what I want when it is closer to our trip (like weeks away), but that will happen even if you call yourself.

    The only draw back to staying CL and using IPO is you will be very spoiled. ;)

    I very much like using IPO and have never been disappointed. I hope this will be your experience too. :thumbsup2

    I was told all AKL CL rooms are Savanah view. No idea about mimosas at other CL. They were not out you had to ask a CM for one. The beer went into the fridge around 1630 but you could ask anytime day or night for wine or beer.

    Ohhhh so you asked if they had mimosas. That is a horse of a different color.:lmao: I thought they had them out to make your own or a pitcher. Thank you for clearing that up.
