WOW! Sounds like you really made out great! I hoped you tipped them well.

That's why I love the CM's at these resorts, they are exceptional. We received an upgrade today and 2 years ago when we went. I bought the CM a Coach change purse, from the Orlando Outlets, she loved it. But she totally deserved it.

Hope you had a magical time, personally I would not have left the suite!

Wow, that is a wonderful upgrade. We had a similar experience two years ago. I booked a garden view at the Poly. There was a small problem with the room and I called and asked if they had another room. The same category, of course.

The gentlemen said, would a theme park view in the Hawaii bldg. (conceirge) be ok? I asked him if he was sure as I was in a garden view and he said yes. I couldn't believe it. We had a great time and I still think about how wonderful that room and view was. Congrats on the upgrade

What an amazing room upgrade. I thought I hit the jackpot last year when we were upgraded from a studio at AKL Villas to a 1 bedroom villa.

Thanks for reading and for all of the positive comments. I took pictures of the Club Lounge too and I am going to add those to the YC/BC thread.

What an amazing upgrade. We're staying CL in AKL next month, now I hope to get one of those magical upgrades, lol!!

I know what you mean about no rush leaving CL to get to a park. That's what I'm afraid of, with us They'll have to pry us outta there to get on our DME back to MCO!
