ASsports seems to be overbooked right now. There still seems to be availability at ASMu, but I'll send you some pixie dust anyway.

That is the stuff dreams are made of! We will be at Pop April 19, and as much as I love Pop, I would be kissing the CM if they upgraded me to AKL. I would say thank you for the Poly or the Contemporary. Any of the others, I wouldn't be thrilled, but I would take it anyway--except maybe boardwalk--the older DD has an unhealthy fear of clowns and blames it on me decorating her nursery with them.

When I went to AsMo for one of my trips that happened to the lady in front of me. She was upset and wanted to stay there. I overheard and told them I would gladly take the upgrade. She then changed her mind but said they should comp tickets or give her some other compensation since she was staying somewhere other than where she booked. To some, an upgrade is just not enough.

So happy for your sister though. Loved my AKL stay.

How awesome ! I was excited to just be upgraded to a preferred room at sports last month- I figured it was because of all the cheerleaders there and I asked for a quiet room . They just made a disney customer for life with your sister !

I absolutely HATE AKL! they would have to literally give me the room for free in order to get me to stay at AKL... I don't want to even pay value room rates to stay there!! I would be telling them to look thru their inventory again or move me to a better deluxe but not AKL!
LOL!!! So does that gift horse so straight to the glue factory then??

It does prove the adage though, it is impossible to always make everyone happy.

I wanted to share that a similar thing happened to me back in 2010.. Dec 26th to 31st ( to give disney people some hope) we had booked all stars movies and I received an email saying that the resort was booked to capacity and that it would be easier for everybody if I could move to animal kingdom or yacht club..as soon as I saw the email I called them requesting the animal kingdom but they said my only option for the upgrade was the yacht club.. And I said YES please! So it was an incredible upgrade as i would have paid Three times as much and it was my first disney trip ever! now that's some disney magic

Happened to me last Feb with the Royal Rooms. I booked a GV room and they were not done. Got a call from Disney with an upgrade to Poly TPV room. I was not thrilled at first because I didn't understand the upgrade I was given. Many Disboard members set me straight and I am so thankful. It was an AMAZING place, view and experience. I will never be able to afford that so to have it gifted to me was beyond words!

wow that would be our dream upgrade! Too bad for us we always go during the 'slow' season so it will never happen on our trips but I love reading about it happening to other people!
