You may not be able to answer but I have to ask -- now that you've done the check-in training, what is the method behind the madness of getting upgraded?! Do you have discretion to do it any time there are rooms available?

Loving your enthusiasm even just for training, it kicks off my work day right and makes me try to have that much energy for what I do!

The only way to get upgraded is if they overbook the type of room you reserved. There's really no secret to it! It would be completely by chance.

Hi Jess! I'm Allyson's sister! I dug up my profile that I've used before and am getting VERY addicted to the boards. I'm enjoying your updates SO much - they are getting my super-pumped for my trip down there in a couple of weeks!

I hope that you guys are having a BLAST down there and hopefully our paths will cross when I come down to visit! YAY!! :D

I am so jealous!! I am a junior in college now and am hoping to do the DCP soon. You're making me want to be there right now (and I just got back 2 weeks ago!)

Sorry I haven't been posting as much, but let me just say this TR is going AMAZINGLY! I wish I were there for Long Lost Friends Week (although I have met Robin Hood, the Sheriff, Prince John, Scrooge McDuck, Pinocchio and Jiminy on previous trips) cause it looked awesome! Also, I have yet to see Beauty and the Beat, but I will soon!

Can't wait for the next update, Jess! Keep up the good work!

I am so happy you will get to stay at the Wilderness! That is my all time favorite resort. And my DVC home! The DIS actually just posted this today: http://blog.wdwinfo.com/2013/02/01/7...derness-lodge/
I’m sure that will get you excited (:

Oh my GOD. You are staying at some amazing resorts soon! The suites at AoA look amazing. I want to stay in one so bad!

I wish they sold that shirt you got in the parks! I would so buy it.

I would LOVE to have the Premium or Platinum plans one day! I mean, you have UNLIMITED TOURS with the Platinum. That would be amazing. I mean, you could have it for one night, do everything you wanted, and then switch over to the regular plan. I seriously might have to do that in the future!

I "think" today was your last day at Disney University so CONGRATULATIONS on finishing Front Desk Training!!!!

I heard you were going to celebrate at Victoria and Alberts.

Wow!What awesome Resort choices!

BWI,WL,AoA-to paraphrase the great Resort TV Frump Stacey,that's a TRIPLE RESORT WHAMMY!!!!

I bet you can't wait to go onstage!!!!

The VERY first time you check a Guest in is going to be such an exciting event for you-I am sure you will remember those particular Guests for the rest of your Disney career!

And also what an honor for them to be the first Guests checked in by the future President of The Walt Disney World Resort!

GO DCP Moms!

Go Mark!

Go Baloo!

I think reading your TR is going to help me deal with the fact that I am now at home and not at Disney. I am seriously SO SO happy that things worked out and we were actually able to hang out for awhile at Disney =) And YAY that things have been going so well with your training and the start of your DCP!

BTW - that t-shirt is AWESOME.

Just wanted to say hi and that it sounds amazing. Also the TOT pic was awesome. I dream of working at Disney all the time and it is nice to get to hear about it first hand while it is happening. Good luck and I can't wait to read more.

I'm having so much fun reading all about your adventures! Thanks for keeping us updated. I'm glad to hear that you have decided to print all these great reports in a book once you are done. It'll be an amazing memory that you can share! Can't wait to hear more!

I've enjoyed reading about your adventures too! Didn't become a Disney fan until the last year when my two kids and I got annual passes and made good use of them. Know we'll be doing that some other years too! Will be fun to watch your journey there working AND playing!

Jess, I'm so glad that you're sharing this WONDERFUL experience with us! I've been in lurkdom on your trips reports for awhile and have enjoyed every minute of them! I've learned so much from your experiences and feel as though I've actually watched you grow up on the disboards! I know that your parents must be so proud of you because I'm a total stranger and I am! Anyhow, enjoy every second of your DCP and know that your avid readers are here cheering you on! BTW, I was so excited for you having been assigned to CSR! It's my favorite mod resort! My sons and I will be staying there at the end of Sept. so we'll just miss you! Oh well, maybe we'll see you in the parks one day! Hugs to you girl!
