The lines in the lobby were looooooooooooong, but the ONLINE CHECK IN line was SHORT! YAY!! So I hop on this line and wait about 5 minutes.
What I did notice during that wait, is there were cast members with rolling laptop going down the line and asking all the guests what they needed help with. MAN it sure did speed things up!
So, I get to the counter and show them my printout. The CM pulls up my info, does an “OH?” and picks up the phone . . . :huh::pinch:
Now if you all remember this has happened to me once before (re “What do you mean you can’t find my reservation!” TR) So I start to sweat!
The CM hangs up and says “GOOD NEWS! We are upgrading you to Old Key West!”
I say, “Wait, what? I’m staying one night and you want to upgrade me?”
She says “What, you don’t want too?” :laugh:
I say “Not really, we want to check in, change and hit Blizzard Beach!”
She says “OK! Instead I’ll put you in a preferred room, would that work?”
I say “SURE! AWESOME!”
So, while she is making the change, we start to chit chat a bit about WHY they would UPGRADE me when I am staying one night? She though it was because of the 4/3 promotion, and that the values are almost sold out during the time, and since I was staying one night I was messing up the system. :laugh:
She also pointed behind her to a BIG STACK of YELLOW ENVELOPES.
She said, “See those? All $200 GC!”
