I would like to know more about it in general. When specifically did it start? We had a room upgrade dropped on us immediately upon arrival on 11/24 and I'm still looking for some kind of reason why, could that have been it? ASMu was certainly not packed, and all the CM at check in would say is "looks like you were pixie dusted"...

It's just starting for 2013. Here's one place to read more about it: http://www.insidethemagic.net/2012/1...ld-disneyland/

And as far as your upgrade, that was just like the CM said...some pixie dust to make your stay even more magical!! They will randomly do things like that for no reason. I've never had a room upgrade (I'd love to though!!) but we've had small things given to us in the parks like FastPasses, snacks, my youngest got asked to be Jr security at Epcot, a CM played tic tac toe with him and gave him a Tic Tac Toe Champ certificate in MK and he got to say the "All Aboard!" when we road the MK railroad one time...

And Disney Commando- I thought of you when I saw the video of the Dapper Dans singing boy band songs!!
I hope I'm there that week

Although our last trip on Nov 11th, My Son, Myself, Randall (Cinderella's Fella) & his wife Jodi, had a AWSOME encounter with them, even got to wear their hats

I'm all for it! We should definitely do it! I am planning two, well three trips to maximize my PAP's. 2 in 2013 (mid Nov and early Dec). So it looks as tho we have a very good chance of this Dis meet. Plus, the one in early Dec is with my mom so it WILL be a girls trip (again, fellas you are welcome to join. . . for a little while jk)

Thanks a ton for the link! We've been the lucky recipients of a lot of magic in recent history as well. A room upgrade though... huge!

But basically it's all the CM's no matter what job they do, that make WDW what it is the Happiest Place On Earth, Every CM in some way can effect your day, and being open to this idea they can also help make Magic happen & maybe learn something

It is kinda funny that a Commando who a lot of people would stereotype as someone who does not to stop to smell the roses, can pick up on something like this where other's do not

So to all the CM's out there, Thank You & Keep Up The Great Work, Have A Happy New Year and I look forward to meeting more of you

And to ALL The Commando Club Members, Have A Very Safe & Happy New Year, I hope to meet as many as I can, and always keep a open mind when at WDW, Magic can come from ANYWHERE

Be careful with that upgrade. We used to stay at value resorts and didn't get the upgrade, but just as good of a booking offer, and stayed at CBR. We liked the moderate resort so much better than the value that we bought into DVC and have never turned back.

Now, I am still cheap and we only do studio stays to save points, but staying at The DVC resorts has added an extra layer of Magic. I say be careful, as you may not be able to go back to values after that.
