Club Level at Walt Disney World
You’ve just spent a busy day at a Walt Disney World theme park and returned to your resort in need of a snack. Instead of stopping at the resort’s quick service location where you might stand in another line, you go straight to the exclusive Club Level Lounge. Inside, you find an array of desserts and cordials, along with smiling Cast Members standing by. Soon, the lights dim, and unmistakable music begins to play…”Ready to begin…”
The next morning, you skip the quick service breakfast and head to the Club Level Lounge, where you find hot breakfast items, cereals, fruits, and more. You prepare an espresso in the provided machine, indulge with a mimosa, and set up the kids with cereal while Disney Jr. plays on the lounge TV. Today, you're spending the day at the pool and while there, pop over to the lounge to grab sodas, juice, beer, and snacks to enjoy back at the pool.
As evening approaches, you visit the lounge for hot hors d'oeuvres and a pre-dinner drink. Again, you are met by smiling cast members who engage with your kids, ask about your day, and ensure you have everything needed. After dinner, you retreat to the lounge for a nightcap and a Mickey Bar to end the night.
Sounds lovely, right? I’m Abby, a travel advisor with Be Our Guest Vacations, and a frequent Walt Disney World guest, along with my husband and three children (ages 12, 5, and 3). We didn’t have to just imagine the lovely resort stay described above; it was our reality when we stayed Club Level at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, with a room in the Hawaii building and full access to the King Kamehameha Club Level Lounge. After this first, magical, Club Level experience at Walt Disney World, we were hooked!

Why Should I Book?
Walt Disney World vacations are often jam-packed with visits to the four theme parks, resort pools, Disney Springs, and more! You might be asking, “why should I upgrade to Club Level if I will be so busy outside of my resort?” Great question!
For many guests, Club Level offers an easy, convenient, and luxurious vacation style. I know too well the morning alarms at Walt Disney World; rushing to get myself and three children ready while mobile ordering breakfast and sending the other parent to grab the food…ultimately this ends up with syrup all over the resort room! When we are Club Level guests, there is an ease to those hectic mornings because we can rely on the Club Level Lounge to start our day. Additionally, we appreciate the unlimited supply of juice boxes and snacks for the kids!
Club Level is also a great option for guests who build in resort or rest days during their Walt Disney World vacation, thus spending a large amount of time near the lounge.
Further, guests who take midday or early evening breaks from the theme parks will also see great value from Club Level. The lounges are open to guests outside of scheduled service hours for relaxing or unwinding from the theme parks.
Additionally, if your flight arrives early, you can access the Club Level Lounge before your resort room is ready! Conversely, have a late flight? You can stay in the Club Level Lounge until you depart. You have full access to the lounge from open to close on both your check-in and check-out days.
Not ready to commit to a full week of Club Level? For longer trips, consider splitting your time between a standard resort room and Club Level! I recommend scheduling the Club Level portion at the end of the vacation, allowing time to relax and enjoy all the amenities of your resort. While at most resorts, this would require a room change, your resort’s Bell Services will transfer your bags to the new Club Level Room. And, as a Club Level guest, you can enjoy the lounge beginning at 7 a.m.!
