Is it possible to pay for upgrade to presidential at WBC?

I have already booked for two weeks at WBC and was curious if I could pay for an upgrade to Presidential during check-in?

Simple answer. No.

Since it's a timeshare resort, the "currency" used to pay for your room is the points you own at the resort. Since you are likely renting from a 3rd party, you would not have any points in your own name to be able to change your reservation.

If your trip is anytime in the near future, I'd be very surprised if there are any Presidential units available at the resort. Presidential units make up a very small percentage of the units contained at the property, so they do not tend to go empty. (both from direct reservations, and from VIP level owners who utilize their status to get a free upgrade)

DCtootall is correct the simple answer if no, but if you rented from someone call them ask to get an upgrade if available. Can't hurt to try.

If it's an RCI exchange - won't happen.

But it never hurts to ask. If they have availability, they may do it for a fee.

At HGVC at Sea World, they offered an upgrade out of the blue when we were checking in. Can't recall the cost and it has been a few years. We declined, but it could happen, particularly in the off-season.
