-Resort: Grand Floridian
-Upgraded from: Lagoon view
-Upgraded to:Club Level-Royal Palm Club (Main Building), TPV
-Special occasion (if any): None. My 30th birthday was a few weeks later, though!

Booked a March trip in January for lagoon view at Grand Floridian, 5 days/4 nights. Heard on DisBoards a few weeks later that you could call and ask if there was a pin in your name. First time I tried, no pin. Called back a few days later, there WAS a pin this time, but all the lagoon views were sold out with that discount.

However, the guy said instead of taking 40% off my room, he could take 20% off the room, and give me a free upgrade to RPC, with a direct view of the castle.

It was amazing. It was my partner's first trip to WDW, and now he thinks that every room is like that one!

For the most part, we've found out when we got to our room. I think thats the best because you aren't expecting it at all!

On our HM, we were told partly, which was a good thing because they tried to give us a king. We needed doubles because we had friends coming later in the trip (it was a follow up to Hawaii- so we were ok getting company at that point, haha.) She told us that she'd like to give us a king room and comp. the parking fee. Then, we were surprised when we got to the room and it was a balcony overlooking the ToT- my favorite ride!! The manager also brought up champagne later in our stay.

I have also been given a standard room and just really wanted a different standard location and they would upgrade us to give us more of what we want. Like at AKL I really wanted a standard view on the wing of the pool side and they gave us SV on the wing with the pool.

Hope this helps. One thing I have noticed is people that get upgrades don't put in requests. I think they may look at it like they requested that room/ buliding/section for a reason and they don't want to be in another area.

YC. It was a spur-of-the-moment trip, and we requested connecting rooms. On check in, our standard view rooms were a few rooms apart. I went back down to see if they had any rooms closer together, and the desk manager moved us to two connecting water-view rooms, over my (not too-strenuous) objections.

Needless to say, YC is our favorite Epcot-area resort now. We were thankful for his generosity, and made sure to mention that in our letter to Guest Relations.

I've never gotten one, but I don't mind. Both last year and this upcoming trip we are at POR, and there really isn't much to be upgraded to...LOL! Last year we booked standard and had a great room location I was very pleased with. This year I know we'll be in AB because we are 5, so I did request ground floor because we have a stroller.
In the past I've just paid for the level I wanted.
Sounds like fun for alot of you!!
