This past January, we stayed @ Poly, fiance paid for Garden View, but he had noted on the reservation, that he brought me to WDW to propose We were upgraded to (I guess they call it) Theme Park view? We had the castle right in front of us, GF wedding pavillion on our left and CR on the right. It was lovely!

I got engaged 1/24/10 in Epcot

I will be on the plane 3 weeks from right now!!
When we were upgraded at WL the CM told us that we'd be on the the CL floor. At BC, the CM at check-in didn't tell us we'd been upgraded but as we were approaching the room there was a CM in the hall and he said, "ooh, that room has a great view." At Poly, I knew it was an upgrade when the CM pulled out our KTTW cards and they were gold.
Recent trips: BWI - 2014, BC/POR - 2013, GF - 2012, BWI - 2011, Poly - 2011, BWI - 2010, GF - 2010, Poly - 2009, Pop - 2008, BC - 2008 and many more!

Beach club
Upgraded from: STD room
Upgraded to: Concierge level for 1 week!!
Reason: 10th anniversary

We didn't request an upgrade but had sent Disney a letter explaining that it was our anniversary and a second honeymoon. We drove into the parking lot and were met by a CM who told us to follow her as we had been upgraded to concierge level. We were so pleased and it was such a great surprise. We are heading to AKL and would love for the same thing to happen!
