Never upgraded mid hire but you could drop in at the Disney car care centre and ask?

As above. Expect to get fleeced though!
Upgrades are expensive!

I'm sure they'll upgrade you at the Disney CCC, it's close to the entrance to MK.

I hope you weren't too far away at the time then - that's really poor

OP I think its worth calling in at the car care centre just to get a price but as Mr Tom Morrow says it probably won't be cheap.

Mmm. Probably why Dollar has such a small following on here!
I know you probably got a better service at the Airport but I wouldn't have taken the car there and eaten into my valuable time.

I picked up a car from McCoy and took it back to the Disney car care centre to change with no issues!

If the car was faulty I would have refused to drive it and ask them to bring me a new one. Over the years I have done this twice, once with Dollar and once with Budget.
Upgraded with a full tank of fuel both times. :-)

OP. Before you walk into the CCC I would have a look at the cost of hiring the car you currently have for the period left of your vacation. Then look at the class of what you would like to ascertain the difference in cost.
That way you are armed with an indicative cost so you don't get ripped off.
