Tell me about your upgrade
 
I may be alone, but I love reading about guests being upgraded at Disney. If you received some pixie dust and were surprisingly upgraded at check-in, please tell me about it.

In 2010 my daugheter was diagnosed with MS before our visit. We were very stressed and concerned about how she would be able to handle all the walking. I called POFQ to request room close to buses and foodcourt even if it meant giving up garden view. Saving steps was more important. When we arrived we were informed at check in that we were up graded to CR for the lenght of our stay. A private van was called to transport us and we were treat royally. I love Disney so much for making one of the worst times in our life a little better.

Such a wonderful story- thanks for sharing. I hope your family is well and that the Disney magic followed you home.

Beach Club
 
I took my parents a few years ago for a surprise to the Beach Club. It was only for 2 nights as they live in Clearwater. When we checked in a nice man came out to great us and asked if we were the "so & so" party. They knew since we checked in at the gate to park our car. I said yes and he said "you're a lucky guest, please follow me". We didn't know what was going on. I thought he was just escorting us to the desk to check in, but no; he escorted us to the elevator!!! I knew what that meant, but my parents didn't. I was so excited. :woohoo: He brought us up to Concerige!!! I had never stayed at this level. It was amazing. We were the first room on the left and had an awesome view of the pool too. I had been about 25 times, usually with my son; and we have never been upgraded to anything!! This time my son wasn't with me and I was so sad about that. He wasn't too happy missing out either. But I made it up to him and booked us concerige for his 21st Birthday the following year.

We have never received a upgrade..This gives me hope!

Upgrades at the moderates have gotten few and far between, because Disney basically added booking categories based on requests.

A few years ago, I was booked in waterview and was given a king bed, corner room riverview.

Now that would be a booking category; either riverview or king bed.

We have been upgraded twice.

The first time was in 2006 when we were staying at the YC for our 10th Anniversary. We booked a standard view room and got a quiet pool view. It was very relaxing to sit there in the morning and watch the ducks swim in the pool.

Then last year we went to the BC for the first time and booked a garden view regular room and when we stepped off the ME bus at around 3PM we were greeted by name by man with a clip board. I thought he had the wrong guest but he assured me that he was waiting for us. He took us to the concierge floor. I could have burst. My family was just looking at me like what is going on. As soon as we got to our room I screamed. I was so happy.

We loved CL so much that we are staying CL at BWI in July. Can't wait.

We have been really lucky. The only time we didn't get upgraded was at we, our first trip. While cl is a wonderful upgrade, we have always been very happy with our view upgrades as well. :thumbsup2

Our very first trip, we were "family of the day" and upgraded from std garden wing to a huge suite!!! We were so spoiled and nothing has really quite measured up since :(

We had the same thing happen to us at the CR! It wasn't our first trip though, so we weren't too spoiled. But it was awesome!

We also were upgraded from Pofq to the Poly,but only for one night. We had the PoFq night booked for just the first night, because our discount code we were using at the poly for the rest if the week did not start till night 2. They moved our first night to poly as well, at the PoFq rate. Even better, for that poly stay they upgraded us from garden view to lagoon view. Magical!!

Same here! My first solo trip in 2012, I booked a standard view room at the BC. Got off the ME bus and was approached by a young lady CM with a clipboard who asked my name. When I told her, she said she had a surprise for me, I had been upgraded to CL! I was totally stunned, did not see that coming! :goodvibes

August 2011
 
I had planned for our family of 5 to stay at the BC in a deluxe CL room for my 40th birthday (8/2) and 10th anniversary (8/4). We had surprised the kids with the trip (DD20, DS15, DD15) and they were told we were staying at POP until we got off ME at BC. We were taken up to CL to check in, where I was told we were upgraded to the 2 bdrm suite. It was awesome, wonderful view and had LOTS of room for the 5 of us.

We were upgraded for the 1st time last month. We had booked a YC SV CL room and upon checking in were upgraded to a YC Lagoon View CL room!!! We were so excited! :cool1: Way better than looking at a roof (which I was prepared to do)
