View Full Version : Paid for an upgrade at the port

Hi! I just got home last night from the January 2 Wonder (3 nights) to share that I got a good deal on an upgrade at the port. We were originally assigned to a category 11 room for which we paid 1500 for the four of us. We have only stayed in rooms with a verandah so decided to check into an upgrade. If I had upgraded the week before my cruise to a cat. 5 (no cat 6's were available), the price increase would have been $3500! That's right! Our original price was with the early booking savings. Disney was asking $5050 for a cat 5 on a 3 day cruise the week prior. However at the port it only cost us $578. to upgrade from a cat.11 to a cat 5.
I will warn you that it is best to get to the port early (we were there a bit before 11:00) and go directly to the Castaway Club desk or next to it. That is where they check for any possible rooms available to upgrade to.
Hope this info was helpful!

Lucky you! We will be cat. 6, and the only upgrade I would be interested in paying for is to a 3. (Magic) Has anyone ever done this upgrade at port? If so, how much was it? Not very many 3's available at boarding I bet!
