We are currently at the Contemporary - Concierge 14th floor. Today when we checked in, we got the surprise of a lifetime. We have been upgraded to the 2 bedroom suite! It has 2 beds, 3 baths, 4 balconies, foyer, kitchen/bar, living and dining rooms. It is amazing! The best part - it's a magic kingdom view. We are all in our jammies and will be watching Wishes in a few minutes - my almost 5 year old daughter is thrilled beyond belief, as are we!

Nothing like this has ever happened before. We are DVC and love Disney, and feel very blessed to be able to experience Disney magic, period. This type of magical surprise is one in a million!

Besides that, the concierge staff is fabulous as is the weather! It's gorgeous. :lovestruc

Just wanted to share this magical surprise, Tiger :)

Thank you! We just came inside from watching Wishes and the Water Pageant and we are still so stunned at what magic we received today!

It was absolutely gorgeous and such a thrill. We love Wishes and have watched it many times, yet nothing will probably ever compare to this time as not only did we watch from our balcony, but it was the baby's first time at watching and he loved it!

Thanks again - happy vacationing to all, Tiger :)

Thanks! We have to go to breakfast, and then we have to check in to Saratoga today as we were only here for 1 night- that's probably why they were so generous with this upgrade.

Last night was just heavenly, as was just waking up to a beautiful sunny morning at the castle! Truly am amazing view!

I'll post more in a few days once we are get our free internet as I we have lots of stuff to do over the next few days.

So far, this has been the most magical part of our trip, Tiger :)

continues to confirm my own suspisions that arriving mid week, slower times, and short stays are prime upgrade foder. most upgrades I have read about here on Dis happen midweek, and are for less then 3 nights (however mine was for 7 nights! woo-hoo). Just keeps us wanting to go back so it's good for buisness. and I imagine some will upgrade rest of trip at their own expense if availablity is there. fun stuff.

I'm back! We had a great time at our other resorts, but after such a long vacation, we were anxious to get home. I've sorted through over 2,000 photos and chosen the best photos of the Contemporary VP suite. Here they are as promised:

Enjoy the photos! If anyone ever has the opportunity to stay in suite 4909, I would highly recommend it!

Here also is the link to my mini-review between Contemporary Concierge and Yacht Club. Contemporary won hands-down (and not because of the upgrade either)!

AFter viewing your photos, how I kick myself for our first ever trip to WDW not booking the MK view at the Contemporary! We had a beautiful lake view 1st floor room for that stay. Well I guess, we just have to stay at the Contemporary again someday. Thanks so much for sharing and congrats on the upgrade what a surprise for you!

awesome pixie dust!!! princess: That is SOOO amazing!!!

I am curious what room type your orginal ressie for? Our 1st stay there we had an upgrade from wing to the tower and we were VERY pleased!

As DVC members, we used points to book this ressie. It cost us 67 points (plus a $95.00 fee) to book the highest level for us as DVC members - Atrium Club. Member Services wasn't sure exactly what suite this would be, but they knew it would be a Concierge room. It actually costs less points to book a Magic Kingdom View room because it's not Concierge, but we had extra points to use, so we booked this as we always heard fabulous things about Contemporary Concierge, so Member Services, as well as Concierge Dept. put down that we requested a Magic Kingdom view if available. We were totally floored to get this upgrade, that's for sure!

Hope this helps, Tiger :)

I just booked Contemporary MK View for October and after reading your review and looking at your pictures, I do not have any "reservations" about the cost of the room at all. The view is PRICELESS! Wow! I am so excited now!!! I'm in full planning mode - bring on the Disney magic!
