Got upgraded to the Poly!

Went to check in at the CBR on Saturday am. I gave the CM at the online check in desk my ID. She started to enter my info into her computer and then seemed to stop. She kept staring at her computer, and my ID for what felt like a very long time. She then excused her self saying she had to check on something and went into a back room with my ID in hand! I had no idea what was going on. When she returned she said that we had been randomly selected to receive an upgrade to a deluxe resort, and that resort was the Poly!!!!!!! Me, DW, and DD were so happy and excited I think we scared the CM...lol! Since we used magical express and didn't have a car, they gave us a voucher for a free cab ride to take us from CBR to the Poly. Best 1st day of any vacation I have ever had EVER! Thank You Disney World! Now getting up to start day two of our awesome trip! Just had to share my happy news!

Wow, congratulations!! The Poly is wonderful.

You know what Disney's doing don't you? They're trying to get you hooked on the Poly so you'll stay there again and again and again. Bwahahaha!
