Does anyone know what they charge for the towncar transportation and who it's through?
I let them set up my car last time and I dont remember which company it was but there were no problems and the cost was not higher then other companies. If you call they will tell you who it is through.

If you don't like their price, I highly recommend Tiffany town cars. All good experiences with them.

I agree . We have used Tiffany Town Car several times and we love them. The drivers are always on time, very courteous and friendly, and the vehicles have always been very clean. Sometimes we rent a car, but if not, Tiffany Town Car is the only car service we use .

You should email the YC IPO (the address is at the beginning of this thread) and tell them that you would like them to book your ADRs. They will email you a packet to complete, where you will list the restaurants, date, time, and number of guests. You then email that back to them. Then you just wait. They do a wonderful job getting all your ADRs. They emailed me early in the morning with my ADRs on my 180 day mark. They were fabulous. I used the BC IPO but it is my understanding that the YC and BC use the same IPO. Good luck!

No. The only water they had was large bottles of evian for pouring into small glasses.

Here at YC CL now and they definitely have regular size (the kind that you pay $2.50 for in the parks) bottles of water for us. There are 5 of us, and several times I requested 5 bottles - no problem!

From what people have been saying, it sounds like BC and YC and the only ones that offer that now. People at AK have been saying they don't even have bottled water for pouring into glasses -- just filtered water in pitchers. I'll find out next week!

Hope you're having a great vacation! Has the lounge been crowded?

So is the consensus that YC/BC are the only two CL resorts that have small bottles of water for guests, by-request only? I get frequent questions on my threads about this and don't want to give out incorrect information, but it seems now that the MK resorts, BWI and AKL do not offer the individual bottles, but YC/BC do and it's by-request only?

WL still has the large bottles of water, but it's sparkling water and filtered "in the back" pitchers of water, as psac posted.

Have a great vacation psac! Do you guys have a late spring break?

What's wrong with Evian water?? I think it tastes great. We always keep those large bottles in our room fridge and they are so refreshing and cold after a long park day. Especially since we usually return long after the lounge is closed.

Personally I didn't like how at the BC CL last summer people were loading coolers and backpacks with those small plastic bottled waters and sodas from the concierge lounge. I think that is rude. The point of concierge isn't to serve as a picnic supply station. The food and drinks are to enjoy in the lounge or in your room, or if you want to grab & go in the mornings you can pour water into a styrofoam coffee cup and take it with you.
