    I am trying to make some choices. As of now we are staying at the Poly-Garden View Club Level. I want to make our first trip special. Is club level worth it? Our son may need an ADA, so any thoughts on that are welcomed too. This is overwhelming.

    Hi Becca!

    Planning a Disney Parks vacation can be like a roller coaster all of its own: some decisions are easy breezy like the world’s happiest boat ride, while other elements offer so many wonderful options that feel like twists, turns and loops. But no matter what you choose, you’ll still be at Walt Disney World Resort enjoying special family time.

    I recently enjoyed a club level room at Disney’s Contemporary Resort with my family and it was one of our best Disney Resort Hotel stays yet. Before becoming a mom I was a 'rope drop to park closing' Disney diehard. Now we need some daily downtime. What I loved most about our club level stay and the lounge was having somewhere else to go to get a bit of work done or watch TV without waking my son during nap time.

    Access to all-day gourmet goodies is a big reason why some choose a club level. While the actual menu items vary based on the day and the resort hotel, all club level lounges follow the same time schedule of when eats are offered. If food is the forethought of this reservation, think of how you have your Disney Days scheduled and if you'll leave before breakfast (served between 7:00 A.M. and 10:30 A.M.) or will be back to enjoy evening hors d'oeuvres. (5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.)

    The best Polynesian Village Resort club lounge perk: it has an amazing view of Magic Kingdom Park’s nightly fireworks display, which normally falls during the dessert service. (8:00 P.M to 10:00 P.M.)

    I hope I've given you a few extra bits to consider to make this planning ride as enjoyable as possible, Becca. We’ll See You Real Soon!
