Using dvc points on Magic

Any chance of an upgrade if we booked using DVC points on Disney Magic?

Anythings possible but don't hold your breath.

Well, I guess that depends on whether they assigned you a cabin or not. I guess if you haven't been assigned a cabin it is more likely.

We also book using DVC points, which a lot of people would call crazy but to each his own.

Once DVC makes your reservation, the cruise line has no idea how you paid, either with points or cash. You would have just as much chance of an upgrade as any other guest. And "Yes" upgrades for DVC members booked with points do happen. Back in 2001, we were upgraded on the Magic, from a CAT 7 to a CAT 4A.

We've done 4 cruises with points - gotten an upgrade 1 time and then downgraded again so we'd be next to each other (5 family members - 2 rooms)

Like others said - once it's booked and paid - they don't care. It's all about balancing the lifeboats and people.
