free upgrade?

right now we are staying in the pop for the end of august. Any chance of getting bumped up to a more expensive resort? i know cruiseships often upgrade, not sure about disney.

Not unless they are overbooked, don't count on it.

I have only heard of it happening a handful of times in the 15 years I've been talking to peopel about WDW. I will say that a few times we've been upgraded to a preferred room from a standard at Value resorts. The end of August is still a very crowded time, though, so I wouldn't bank on any kind of upgrade.

No, I don't think there is any chance of that happening.

Free upgrades to a higher category of resort are extraordinarily rare. Honestly, you'd have a better chance of winning the lottery. Sorry.

Talking

It happened to us in 2007 when we were booked at AS Music. Many people at values received emails and were bumped to 1 bedrooms or studios at OKW or SSR. We are going in August again this year. Would love to see this happen again!!!

Not unless
. . . a portion of the resort is unusable
. . . they are drastically overbooked
. . . the phase of the moon is absolutely perfect

If you are thinking about upgrading your resort category then it's best to change your reservation, because this way you won't be disappointed with staying at Pop Century.

I have had a CM offer me an upgrade to a moderate, say, from a value while booking for less than I've seen posted, but I think that happens mainly when they are pushing certain resorts that are underbooked. I agree with an earlier post, go ahead and get a quote on the upgrade yourself from the reservation line, you may be pleasantly surprised how little it is to get into a moderate.
