Let’s start off the Perfect Fit Concierge at Walt Disney World Resort with the Old Faithful Club, Disney’s Wildernesses Lodge Resort Club Level Lounge.
For many years now, going on 20, our family has been trying new Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Club Level services. We have experienced for many years the Disney Dining Plan and staying at moderate resorts, which we totally love and makes our Walt Disney World trips so enjoyable. With one counter service meal a day , one table service meal a day and a snack, we found it was just enough for our family at that stage of our boys lives.
Fast forward 19 years and now our families needs have changed and along with those changing needs we discovered the incomparable Club Level at every Disney Deluxe Resort Hotel. By being a guest at a Deluxe Walt Disney World Resort, we already felt the difference in theming and architectural brilliance, but staying Club Level took that experience to the next summit.
By being a Club Level Guest, we have an amazing view no matter what room we are housed in, the views are all different like all resorts, woods, gardens, pool, or parking area, but our rooms have always been practically perfect in every way. Not only are the rooms amazingly themed but the location on each Club Level floor makes for spectacular views. Not that different from the rooms on other floors of the resort except for VP Suites and Presidential Suites, which by the way, if you ever are fortunate enough to stay, will blow you away with so many enchanted appointments ( even a gorgeously decorated Christmas Tree during the holidays)!
As a Club Level Guest, the Club Lounge is open for continental breakfast 7-10 which offers more than enough food options for us, cereal, yogurt, fruit, cheese and meats, coffee, tea, bagels, toast, assorted pastries and drinks. All day snack offerings 11-4, including soda, ice tea, lemonade, water and coffee and tea. Mixed nuts, homemade chips, dips, fruit and cookies as well as candy. During evening hours of 5-7, hors d’oeuvres are served along with beer or wine, the offerings are ample and could easily replace dinner for my husband and I , with both hot and cold choices, cheeses, breads, and some kid friendly choices as well, there is something for everyone and it changes nightly. Dessert comes out from 8-10, and me oh my, the choices are phenomenal, assorted fruit hot strudel crisp, assortment of cookies, brownies, small dessert bites, fruit, and cordials. Again, more than enough to satisfy that sweet tooth before bed, or as we like to do, a stroll around the resort to walk some of our indulgences off.
While each Resort Club Level offerings differ, most of the food comes from the themed restaurants within that Resort, so you will have that feeling of authentic pairings at whichever Resort you choose.
We have tried them all and can’t choose one we like more than the other, they all serve up top notch Guest services ( there are Cast Members on each Club Level to assist you with any need you might have from dining reservations to where to locate the laundry room on property)and the food is deliciously prepared every stay.
The reason we have come to love staying Club Level while vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort is that we don’t have to feel stressed about finding a place to eat EVER, we just walk down to the lounge. We don’t ever have to feel that we have to go crazy making dining reservations, those are not necessary for our family as the Club Level provides all we need. And to be quite honest, when we do the math between getting the dining plan, purchasing all meals separately, or staying Club Level, it all evens out in cost for our needs and for accommodations to fit the four adults now in our family.
We have our favorite resorts on property, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge “Old Faithful Club”, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa “Sugarloaf Club” outer building are our special favorites.
We have never have stayed off property and it makes our trip that much more magical knowing extra pixie dust is included in our Concierge stay no matter which Deluxe Resort we choose.
