Some final various pics of things...

The fan favorite Nespresso machine and new Natura water machine, which I love. Wish they'd put out bigger glasses though.

Tea and various sweeteners/flavors.

The updated lounge is quite cozy, IMO. I like what they did here.

I'm still not sure what I think about removing the CM desks, but using this space for a big 6-top table was a good call. Great for a big group.

The Tower Club lounge has two balconies, both oversized like the rooms on this floor. The padded seating is nice. There used to be a table out here that I kind of missed, but it does perhaps stop a large group from squatting on the balcony/taking space from others wanting to watch fireworks. The view, of course, is fantastic.

The balcony provides for some great Enchantment viewing. They pump the music in quite loud and it is timed well.

I had wondered if the audio would play for the holiday After Hours fireworks (which are at 11:15pm, so well after the lounge closed).... but the lounge/balconies are still accessible 24/7 and the audio played right on queue.

Planning a first trip to Universal and currently have Portofino CL booked. Any thoughts on Portofino CL vs Hard Rock CL? Considering a switch to Hard Rock given the shorter walk, but like the overall theme of Portofino better. If one CL is demonstrably better would seal the decision. Thanks!

We have stayed at portofino CL and loved it. Very relaxed feel. I thought the boat ride to parks was very easy. Would stay there again for sure. Have not done hard rock to compare

Did PBH cl in May and booked HRH cl for this Wednesday.

The walk wasn’t bad from PBH but with only 1 morning this time a quick walk seemed better.

Its been hard to get current info. I wasn’t thrilled with cl at PBH but it’s cheap and time savings are still handy.

The mew rooms at PBH were ok but the bathroom was nice with a separate toilet room and guaranteed deluxe room with cl booking. I just don’t love either . I love poly, gf and Cr. US? I go for the express pass and cheaper rooms.

I’ve stayed at several CL, but never understood how y’all know the CMs by name and look for them. However, after AKL this time, I get it! We spent a lot of the time in the lounge with a baby, so really got to know the cast members. They knew what we wanted and it was truly a magical experience! They were amazing and made our crazy trip perfect. I can’t imagine how hard it would have been if we weren’t staying CL!
I arrived in time for breakfast Sunday, then spent hours in the lounge waiting for my room with my 4 week old grandson.

We love the CL at AKL! The CMs would ask if I wanted a Coke Zero whenever they saw me come in or a Sangria. They did not keep the Coke Zero out or the Sangria but were happy to bring one out. They even brought me the pap from Boma when it was not out one day. I didn’t ask for it they asked if I wanted it.
I made all the CMs in the lounge cute pop sockets and you would have thought I gave them something awesome. They really were appreciative.

    @GaDisneyDad thanks for the review with all of the amazing photos!! 😍 I am really surprised at the kitchen in the 1BR Tower Club suite. Definitely a downgrade from what it was before, in my opinion...minus the Wolf microwave, lol. We stayed in one a few years ago, and the kitchen had a full size refrigerator and freezer! Here are two photos of what the kitchen looked like before

    A highlight of Tower Club/14th Floor rooms are the oversized balconies. They really make for excellent spaces and the updated furniture is really nice.

    These two sections of the balcony are off the living room/dining room.

    This one is off the bedroom.

    No doubt a room on the other side (TPV side) gives you all the buzz/action of the Seven Seas Lagoon... but a Bay Lake view sure is nice - especially since you can always get the TP view from the lounge.

    Not complaining one bit about the sunrises.

    And the Electrical Water Pageant view doesn't get much better. I found the app had the accurate show time - which is currently right around 10:05pm.

    The CM/team/department who made the 50th tag for the Electrical Water Pageant should get a raise. It's so simple but has such a nice message and a beautiful design.

    Beautiful pictures. The suite looks amazing and the views are incredible. Thank you for sharing. Cannot wait to be there in January.
