The Ben Ish Chai Chukas (1:19) writes

בארבע סעודות שבת וכן ביום טוב וחול המועד וראש חודש אומרים מגדול בו"ו, וכתב בחסד לאלפים בשם הרב רבי דוד פאדרו ז"ל שגם בסעודת מילה ראוי לומר מגדול בוא"ו על פי הסוד יעוין שם

During the four meals on Shabbos, and on Yom Tov, Chol HaMoed, and Rosh Chodesh we say Migdol with a vav on Rosh Chodesh, as well as at the meal of a bris milah it's fitting to say Migdol, for a kabbalistic reason.

Why do we specifically say Migdol on Chol HaMoed?

    Chol HaMoed seems to me to fit right in with the other examples in your source. What is confusing about its inclusion that you ask about it specifically?
