A lot has been written about the 2.0 upgrades and I can't remember all that is being implemented, but I will fill you in on what I do know:

Upgraded linens, welcome champange upon arrival; better room service choices, more activities like lectures, classes, etc, better food with more choices; extended kids club hours; there is more, but these are the things that come to mind.
