Yeah, I think we were lucky. The way it happened: after we were checked in by a member of the concierge team in our room, I mentioned really wanting to stay in the Walt Suite one day, and he asked if we'd like to see it. I JUMPED on that question!! Then, another time, another CM we had met took us to see the Grand Suite when we asked about what else was available like the Walt Suite. (I think my question at that time was, is this the nicest suite in the resort?)
You can always ask a CM (maybe someone you know from other stays). The worst that can happen is they say NO (perhaps someone is already in the suites too).

yes, dreamcruiser, that's how we got to see the suites before we would book them! Sometimes when we were sprinkled with pixie dust, and it seems way back then we were, upgrades happened.

ktlm~I don't know why I was thinking baby grand, yes it's a white upright piano. Thanks for correcting that! Like I said, haven't stayed in that suite!

Looking at the rates, even with AP, the discounts are awful! ACK!
Especially for SL and RPC. Oh, why am I soooo spoiled? darn it!

It has been many, many years for me, dreamcruiser. LOL
Most of the upgrades were in the 90's and the early 00's.
Good times!
Talk about being spoiled, spoiled, SPOILED!
And DH and I schelped it once and stayed non-cl last march at the BC.
We had a nice time and I was grateful to be there, especially with my health at that time.
But, CL ruins you for a standard room, (at least it did me) and the GF's RPC is KING.

Well, two hours ago, I did it. I booked our next stay at GF RPC! What a thrill! We feel just so fortunate. I can tell you, it may be past midnight, but I really can't sleep.

I know what you mean about being spoiled! My DSis and I are....I think one time we thought about checking in wearing tiaras!! Seriously tho, we can't afford concierge really. Once all three of us sisters stayed in SL, but otherwise, my sis (who travels with me) and I have been wonderfully upgraded to CL. Never to one of the top suites tho..

Lulu'sMom, we have been so spoiled. This will be our third RPC stay. As I'm travelling with my DM - not as spry as she once was - a little comfort will not go amiss. I won't mention vicarious enjoyment of that comfort .

Oh, how wonderful to get those CL upgrades! And they are like magical pixiedust! All it takes is a one-time upgrade (for some of us) and we are hooked! LOL We'll beg, borrow or steal (jk) to stay CL!
Love the tiaras! Too funny!

So wonderful that this is your 3rd stay and taking your mom!
My most precious WDW trips are with my mom at the RPC. Kacsmom has met my mom on a GF trip at one of the meets! So I hear you about wanting all that vicarious enjoyment of that comfort, girlfriend!
Great minds think alike! LOL

You can always ask a CM (maybe someone you know from other stays). The worst that can happen is they say NO (perhaps someone is already in the suites too).
Thanks for the input. I will be sure to mention it to a CM the next I am at the Grand. I have no upcoming trips planned, so I really need to start looking into one soon lol. It's really the luck of the draw because the suites could all be taken so you got really lucky!

Do we have a projected completion date with the DVC addition?
