We've been waiting and constantly checking as well for our stateroom number. We have a VGT assignment on the Dream for Sept. 6th and still not received our room number with only 7 days left. So excited, yet anxious about getting our room number

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT, Disney Magic 9/12/12

#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13 days

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 5C on deck 6 right next to aft elevators (6120)

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Happy, we actually request the rooms right off the aft elevators when we typically book. However, I was hoping for some pixie dust and a cabin on 8. But its OK it looks like a great room.

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A

#6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 60 days

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? This room is given only to parties of 3. The extended Balcony is great. However very loud location!!! Has strange water swishing noise at night. Should be a Cat 5. It is not a bigger room, but bigger balcony.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 2 1/2 months
Great price and I would do it again.
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...[/QUOTE]

Hang in there! We booked OGT for the 8/15 sailing and got our assignment 6 days out!

Maybe tomorrow for you?

9/12/12 Magic IGT - bummer

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT on 9/12/12 Magic
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 14
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Cat 11B Room 6323
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Definitely got a leftover - very disappointed , but not unexpected given the full ship. Good deck - but, backing right up to the service elevator which is going to be the pits early in the mornings - and on the last night for luggage!
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 35 days

We can't complain too much, I guess. We paid $1100 with all taxes for 2 adults - 5 nights. That's a little over $200 per night for room, board, entertainment, transportation to and from Canada -- and it's still a Disney Cruise! Just hoped for a bit more pixie dust...

Although this cruise was a great price I knew pixie dust would be very limited since they filled up the ship so nicely with the DVC offer of a verandah cabin for super cheap. However I agree that $1100 for 2 people for 5 night is really good no matter what room you are in.

I'm pretty happy, it's not an upgrade but it's the best in the 11 category that I could have hoped for. Deck 6, midship, nonconnecting room, nothing to complain about! This will be a lot of firsts for us since we always book deck 2 aft and have always had a split bath.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 51 days

I got all excited when I saw that you had posted here (hoping that you had gotten an assignment).

Yeah, if our cruise follows the same pattern, we should be seeing something on the 10th.

Sorry to get your hopes up, I have been lurking on this site just to gather information...I did see some get assignments as early as 14 days....and some as late as 6. I will be curious to see when the cruise the week before us gets theirs.
