We had hoped to have a chance to upgrade to a Verandah room at the port. Looks like a little pixie dust took care of that for us! Thank you Disney!

WOW!!!!! That is some crazy good Pixie Dust
Congratulations!!!!

1. IGT and VGT. Fantasy 7/7
2. 16 for VGT. 15 for IGT
3. 11A and 5B.
4. Delighted with rooms. Really better than expected.
5. No. One is fore, one is mid/aft. Different floors. Seems like they had some inventory to work with on this sailing, so a bit disappointed they made no seeming effort to keep us close, but the rooms we got are so great I don't mind too much.
6. Long time ago. Don't remember. Many months.

Please include:

#1. Did you book a igt, ogt or vgt room, and on which ship? Vgt
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 14 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 4c
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Super excited
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/a
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 120 days

i think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...
