    Hello, was wondering how to get a resort upgrade? Will be celebrating my husband’s birthday in a few months.

    Hi there, Ashley! Welcome to planDisney from another Ashley!

    Your husband is so lucky to be spending his birthday at The Most Magical Place on Earth! I can't think of a better way to enjoy another trip around the sun than to do it in my favorite place in the world.  You'll definitely have to choose a special dining location for him to blow out those birthday candles.  Maybe an evening at California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort?  If you time it right you'll be able to see Disney Enchantment fireworks bursting over Magic Kingdom!

    Depending on which Disney Resorts Collection hotel you've chosen to be your "home away from home" for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you'll find that there are different categories of rooms to choose from. From Preferred rooms that are close to the dining, shopping, and transportation options at your Resort, to Guest rooms with a Theme Park view, you have so many options! 

    If you want to surprise your husband with a room upgrade you can most likely make the switch right in your My Disney Experience account!  Simply log in to your account on the Walt Disney World website and hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab.  Scroll down to "My Plans" to see your Resort reservations if they've already been linked to your account. Here, you'll probably see a "Change Reservations" option and then be able to change your room type if you wish.  If you're having trouble or would like to speak with a Cast Member about your upgrade, simply call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936. 

    Make sure you get that loving husband of yours a "Happy Birthday" button and grab yourself an "I'm Celebrating" one to match! You can find these at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel's Front Desk or any Guest Services location outside of the four Theme Parks! You two will have a magical time enjoying the Parks and celebrating at the same time!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
