not sure if this is possible but....

is there anyway i can upgrade my hotel? we've already booked for february staying in the santa fe, although i'm more than happy to stay here i'm just wondering if it's possible to upgrade our hotel now? seem to have found some more money that could go towards the trip and am wondering if it would be a good surprise for DP?! if it is possible how would i do it? and would it be worth it? would probably upgrade to the SL if possible.

TIA xxx

Yes you can just contact whoever you booked with, Disney or your travel agent. We dis a few times more recently in may. I had booked cheyenne and upgraded to the slowly. Were going nxt march and i actually down graded my booking from 4nights at the new York to 3nights no prob. In my view its def worth upgradeing hotel, where ever we go i always book the best hotel i can possibly afford.

You can do this. Only thing to consider is that if you booked when there was a special offer, you probably won't get the same discount applied to your upgrade.

Iv stayed in both Santa Fe and Sequioa Lodge and can definately say the extra money is worth it!

Arriving at the Santa Fe I was quite smug thinking that I wasnt wasting our spends on a flash hotel however after being lucky enough to have a stay in Sequioa Lodge in July I was amazed at how much the hotel took my breath away. Instead of just a 'theme park break' it felt like a 'holiday'. We were happy to chill around the hotel.

The only disadvantage of staying at SL is that I can never even contemplate SF again lol!

thank you! seems like i'll be taking a trip to the travel agent tomorrow then !

Probably a silly thing to say but i had a quick look on disneyland website and put in our dates at both hotels and the SL was coming up cheaper... surely this can't be right?! if that's the case how will i be charged for the 'upgrade' as in will i be charged an alteration fee or as the SL if viewed as an upgrade or generally more expensive holiday will I just pay the extra?

It might be worth waiting a little while to see if a better offer than the 1 you booked with comes out.

I've booked SL with the 40% discount but if a 50% flash sale comes along I'll check to see whether I can get HNY for not much more.

I'm pretty sure there are no extra charges providing you're upgrading and I even downgraded once from HNY to Cheyenne, when my sons were adamant they were not sharing a bed and didn't incur any penalty fees.

i booked when it was on book 2 nights get 2 free so don't think a better deal is likely to come up how likely is it that a 50% flash sale will come up before february do you reckon?!

If its coming up cheaper, an option they may give you is to add a character meal or something to your booking, to bring it up to your original booking price. I did this once.

I would definitely go to your travel agent and see what disney offer you, you may even get money back if its cheaper, I think others have?

I'm booked for February under the same deal, and my fingers are most definitely crossed for a flash sale for my dates .
