    what is the best way to get an upgrade at Grand Floridian??

    Hey Edwin! I think we would all love to know this answer if it was that simple!  Getting upgrades at any of the Disney resorts is simply by luck and being at the right place at the right time. Even if you "know" someone it doesn't mean that the magic automatically happens.

    Assigning rooms is a great puzzle for each resort. They have to take into consideration requests and check outs and check ins for each day. When the resorts are booked to 100% it is wonderful to just get a room and not have to be changed to another resort.  Disney will always take care of you but sometimes things just happen.

    If the resort is not to capacity you have the best chance for upgrades and there is nothing wrong with asking when you check-in. Nothing ventured nothing gained but don't count on anything and if they can make the magic work then it is icing on the cake. All the rooms at the Grand Floridian are beautiful with great locations so no matter what I am sure you will have an awesome vacation!
