    I've read about people recently getting free upgrades. My ? is how are they chosen? Is it just a random selection or should I call the reservation number to see if I'm eligible? Currently booked at POFQ for 9/26-10/3. THANKS!!!

    Hi, Lisa!    The special free upgrades you are reading about are really few and far between.   I  have stayed at Disney Resorts 30 times or more and have never been offered one of these "pin codes" for a free upgrade.   When this happens, the guests are chosen at random and either receive a postcard or email to notify them of the offer.

    If you were not notified, you will not be eligible.   A bunch of us from the panel will be in WDW the weekend they offered the latest upgrade.   Only 1 received the offer, and by the time she called, the  limited number of offers available were already filled up.  

    So don't feel bad, Port Orleans French Quarter is a wonderful resort, and you were saved the time of making additional phone calls and changing your reservations around :)   !  You made a great choice;  enjoy your WDW vacation!
