Refresh my memory, is that building closer to GCH or the transportation center?
Have you already booked your next trip at the Polynesian?? Lol!

I've read of others being upgraded to Saratoga Springs or Old Key West before, but not the Poly! What an unexpected and magical treat for you; enjoy!!!

Tahiti is closest to the transportation center! We stayed in a theme park view room in Tahiti this past April. We absolutely loved the location. Congrats to the OP again!!!

There are many reasons they do it and the reason the CM went to check with a manager was probably because as some of you, she doubted it was accurate.

The OP's resort could be full, the Polynesian has openings, win win for both.

Also just because it is not posted here does not mean it does not happen to others. Many, many people go to Disney World and never visit an internet forum, before or after their trip.

Over the years we have been upgraded from moderate to deluxe a couple of times.

WOW!!! That is incredible. I always wish that would happen to my family. We haven't even gotten a room upgrade, forget about a whole hotel. That's really great. Hopefully your luck will rub off on someone on the DIS!!!

Have a great rest of the trip!

Congrats! That is awesome.

What if you didn't want to move? Say, they offered you the GF with the pool closed and the construction, etc. Or you had planned out meals at the resort or other activities, what would happen? Do you have to move?

Oh no, they actually asked us if we wanted the upgrade. I think I answered by saying Yes, yes, yes, Oh my God yes! LOL! I think if we had said no, we would have just been given our room and perhaps someone else would have gotten the upgrade. I still can't believe this happened to me! :-)
