Wow that's a great upgrade - mind you she will never want to go back. Disney will have her paying for a deluxe from now on!!!

take it she was not told before hand.

some people will turn it down - because it was not in their plans.

does she have a room, studio or 1-bedroom?

That is amazing, how great for them!! We arrived at ASSp once to be told they were overbooked and they were sending us to Music. I told them that we weren't interested in ASMu at all, we have 4 sons and had chosen Sports for a reason. They managed to find room for us. Now had they offered us AKL...

Congrats to her!!
And I know I am in the minority here, but I would not be happy...
I absolutely HATE AKL! they would have to literally give me the room for free in order to get me to stay at AKL... I don't want to even pay value room rates to stay there!! I would be telling them to look thru their inventory again or move me to a better deluxe but not AKL!

Love it when magical things happen in Disney, that's how it should be! We were upgraded at the Polynesian to conceirge level and it was amazing! It makes the trip that much more memorable!
