It's the itinerary planning office available to club level guests. They will assist you in making reservations, planning events, tours, etc.

I emailed the office about two weeks before my 180 days. I then received a form to fill out with my plans.

There's towels by the pool.

We stayed at the Beach Club last year. It is very nice and a 5 min. walk to Epcot.

If you know your date, I would go ahead and book - you book through dining. We just booked for 2/13 (Super Bowl so figure would be more crowded)

This is my first time staying CL so I don't know for sure but I've heard that many people don't hear from their IPO until 2-3 months out unless you contact them first. They can be especially helpful with making ADR's or special accommodations but we have neither and haven't found a reason to contact them yet. If we don't hear from an IPO 2 months out we'll probably just send them an email letting them know our check in time- just to touch base!

I always just email IPO before my adr date. They send you the paperwork to fill in with your requests.

If you know for sure, make a reservation. We have used the kids club several times at the Poly and we have just dropped the kids off but it makes me feel better to have a reservation if we know for sure we will be using it. They told us that they can hold up to 99 kids at the Neverland Club and they've never come close. Typically they have 10 to 20 kids on an average night. So you probably wouldn't need to worry - but you never know (maybe they are closed for a night or get a private event - I don't know!)

They are so awesome at the Neverland club and are really accomodating and nice. Your kids will love it and you will enjoy your dinner - have fun!

Our kids wanted to go to the Neverland club every night afterwards. If only we could have afforded it! They had a great time and said it was their favorite part of the trip

I have a question for those of you who have tried Tonga Toast...is it sickeningly sweet? I read the description and it sounds like it. Just wondering if it tastes that way. Also - do you have to eat at Kona Cafe or can you get it at Captain Hook's too?

I will have a Dole Whip this time too!!

Thank you!!!

I love Tonga Toast but it is ridiculously sweet. You can get it in the morning at Captain Cook's for around $6 so I would definitely try it- maybe split it with someone!

Superbowl events at Poly?

We arrive at the Poly on Friday. We're big Ravens fans, and would like to make plans to watch the Superbowl at the resort. Is anyone there now and do you know what the Poly has planned for the Superbowl?

Thanks so much!

Thank you!! Sounds like youngest DS and I will be splitting this one morning. Good to know we don't have to use a TS credit to get it!

I agree that it is crazy sweet but in a good way The cinnamon and the strawberries somehow balance out all of that sugar. But it's something I always split with my DD...and we get some bacon for protein
