Thumbs up Awesome Thread

We just booked 2 VGT rooms for August. By the looks of things, it seems as though Disney attempts to put the linked reservations as close as possible. I'm hoping our rooms are close as well. Very exciting. Once we get our assignments, I'll post the results for everyone, although, we won't get them until the end of July. Thanks everyone and keep posting your results.

I haven't received my assignment yet but the statistics nerd in me forced me to figure out my chances of getting a great room. As far as Verandah rooms go-

A little less that 3% are Category 7.
A little more than 3% are Category 6.
49% are Category 5.
40% are Category 4.
Less than 5% are Concierge.

So statistically speaking, chances are really good that you will get a Category 4 or 5 room.

Did you mean to type Cat 4 instead of Cat 7?
Also, there is a chance that you could get a concierge room from a VGT?
I just posted that question and nobody seems to know.

June 23rd Cruise

I'm new to this forum (although I've been lurking for weeks, loving the helpful advice and tips!) and will be sailing on the June 23rd Fantasy cruise in a VGT cabin. Just wondering if anyone on that cruise has received their assignments yet? Trying to be patient but we are so excited that we are having a hard time with this wait-and-see process!!!

Exactly how do we find out the stateroom number? I've been logging onto the Disney Cruise website every day to check (still says VGT). Is that how we find out? Or are we notified in another manner? Thanks in advance for the help!

Yes! Keep checking, instead of VGT it will have a room number! Excited for you for the wait! It's like Christmas finding out what you get!

I was wondering the same thing. We have an OGT booked for August. What happens with the luggage tags when you get your docs before your room is assigned?

We got our luggage tags without a room number a couple of weeks before the actual room was assigned.

From what I'm reading on various boards on here in the past few months it seems the room assignments for IGT, OGT, VGT for the Fantasy sailings are typically posted on Monday afternoons about 12 days before departure.
