So I called again and no luck. They will only offer the upgrade for the one night. I can only assume that the free dining the rest of our stay is causing the "black out" on this offer that she mentioned. Oh well, we were and still are looking forward to POR. Any day/any resort at Disney is still better then any day at home!

If we could go from POR to poly for the entire stay we would do it in a heart beat! Just not worth it for one night for us. Enjoy and congrats on the upgrade!

The thing is, my sister wants to stay in the LM room she booked! None of the "upgrade" options is in any way appealing to her. I realize that to someone else, these might seem like upgrades, but to my sister, they do not.

If she doesn't call them, will they maybe force her to "upgrade" when she checks in in three weeks? Should she call and make sure that her LM room is still hers?

Thanks for some guidance. This has never happened to me, so I don't know what to tell her is the best course of action (or inaction). She hasn't been to WDW in 25 years and she would like to get the room she booked. It'd be different if she wanted to stay at one of these other resorts (or suites) but she doesn't.

Thanks!
I'm paying full price for a Cars suite at AoA from Dec 5-11 so I'm super jealous! And I'd be even happier if they offered me Poly or AKL! I'm pretty sure my two year old would miss Cars but I'd love to be at the Poly or AKL & check off some of my DW bucket list!

We got the email and they gave us an upgrade to Saratoga Springs 1 bedroom villa. This is like a $3000 savings so I took it! We've never stayed at a DVC resort so I am excited. Our dates are December 22-27 and we were originally booked for AOA Little Mermaid room.

It looks like free dining is the "problem". Our offer was only for our first night, room only rate. Looking at other posters dates, it looks like the upgrades are not during free dining dates. Oh well - either way we will be in Disney in 30 days!

Anyone who turns down an upgrade from a value to a deluxe is bananas! You can always go and visit AoA. Even for one night, it could be fun just to see what it is like. They will move your bags for you during the day at the park, right?

We are at POR, not a value. Call us bananas, but the resort is just not that important to us. If we could get the whole week, for sure, but just not worth the hassle for one night. At some point during the day we would have to give up time at the park to "check in" at the other resort. We just don't spend enough time at the hotel to worry about it.

Just returned fromPOR and going again Dec 3-13. Love it there but if they offered an upgrade I would take it. Unless it was for only a night or 2. Too much trouble moving. It would have to be for at least 3-4 nights. And that is only because we are staying 10 nights. If our stay was shorter I wouldn't want to move!!

Having stayed at both and as an owner at SSR, you scored! And over Christmas, how magical. Go to the DVC section and do some research. I'd request the Springs or Paddock section. It's such a great resort.
