    We are staying at Animal Kingdom in a standard room this Aug. Some rooms over look the car park so have been advised to ring 10 days b4 to ask for a better room - do you think we'll get one and do they do free upgrades??

    Hi Allison,

    This is one of those "hit and miss" opportunities that you can never guarantee.  I have only been upgraded once (maybe twice) in all of my years travelling and staying in WDW.  It really depends on the actual day that you are arriving, what is available at that particular time and normally they upgrade you based on a Standard room not being available, so you get a better room (upgrade) instead.  Unfortunately, there are no guarantees, although you can make a special request as you have stated in your question, just don't be disappointed if it doesn't happen.  Have a wonderful trip and enjoy Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    Best wishes,
