Disney Vacation Club’s ‘Lounge Service’ at Reunion Station has been the target of criticism due to its value, or lack thereof. The service provides a cold breakfast for 3 hours in the morning plus 2 hours of salads, snacks, desserts and alcoholic beverages in the evening. For this product, Disney currently charges $50 per adult and $33 per child, per day. Guests are required to purchase the Lounge Service for their entire traveling party and for every night of their stay.
What is a more appropriate price for daily access to the Wilderness Lodge Lounge Service?
When I think Concierge Level I think Alcohol. That's what is driving the price and the interest.Premium appy's are next on the list.
If my fee includes unlimited Makers Mark Bourbon and Jordan wines with bacon wrapped scallops & skewers of tenderloin, maybe $50 per day per adult isn't terrible. However, well spirits and Kendall Jackson served with Chex Mix should come in around $20.00.
I wonder if the "length of stay" can be gamed by booking one trip into segments? I want to hit the parks Saturday to Wednesday but from Thursday to Sunday I want to chilax around the resort. Do I book S - W first, Th - Sun second with the Club and then have them link the two as the check in day approaches. Seems I recall this strategy working for Dining Plans.
Like Viking says, its difficult to say what the price for concierge service until we know what is offered. $50 a day per person seems high to me. However, we have gone to the Territory Lounge at Wilderness Lodge and had appetizers (the mushroom soup is delicious) and a couple of glasses of wine and the bill adds up very quickly. Nevertheless, I just can't see myself going to a concierge lounge every day for 7 - 10 straight days and getting my money's worth.
What if Segment 1 were OKW and Segment 2 were Boulder River Copper Kettle Canyon?
To answer your question, DVC will combine into one reservation, when you book multiple reservations for the same room type, with the same guests at the same resort. So for the two DVC resorts at Wilderness Lodge, if you book one night at BRV and the next at CCV you have two different reservations as you are staying at two resorts and you will have to move rooms each night. You could get concierge for only one of the reservations or you could do both. Now why you would want to check in and out so much is beyond me. But if you made multiple single night reservations at only CCV for every night, then DVC will convert those reservations into a single reservation. Some members wait list dates and end up with the multiple reservations but Member Services will combine them into a single reservation as long as everything matches, guests, room type and resort.
