Cant believe what happened to us today! We are DVC members who are doing a split stay between POP/BWV (BW was only available 4 nights of our 6 night stay so we booked a value to save some $$). Anyway, my wife goes to check us in at POP. The cast member, after looking up our reservation, got a strange look on her face and told her that she needed to see a manager. After a short discussion, the manager approached my wife and apologized that POP was overbooked and that they would have to send us to a different resort for the first 2 nights of our stay. So now, I'm writing this from the 5th floor of Jambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge! Heck of an upgrade $$ wise for,these 2 nights. We love AKL and can't believe we got this lucky!

Happy New Year, everyone!

What an amazing surprise. AKL is beautiful. That is definitely a great upgrade.
There is a great big beautiful tomorrow, and I intend to keep an eye out for it.
