I booked at 5c gty for the 9/23 Dream. I booked Aug 19 and got our room assignment on Sept 4. Room 7024 still a 5c. If I was choosing the room I would have picked midship, but I'm happy we're forward and not Aft.

Disney Wonder Mexican Riviera November 4th Sailing
Booked August 8, 2012 11B GTY
Received room assignment September 12, 2012 (about 53 days prior to sailing)
Assigned a 10B
It's just a little bit forward from the aft elevators. It's not a connecting room (which I didn't want), has a steamer trunk, and is in an area that gets good reviews for being pretty quiet. DH is very pleased about the extra space. Yay!

Disney Fantasy November 10 cruise
Booked in June 9A gty. Paid half cash and half points as DVC member.
Assigned 51 days out and received a 5C. We're thrilled. We were going to try for a verandah upgrade at the port and now we don't have to worry about that!

Booked an 8D on October 18th Dream and received an 8C... It's SO far forward and I am really unsure about that, but glad for the full size porthole!

How do you find out

Do you get an e-mail when your GTY is assigned or do you have to log in and look at your reservation to find out?

You find it in your page/reservation details, no communication from DCL.

Ooh, I can join this now! We downgraded so now we're 9D GTY for our Dec 6, 2012 Dream cruise. Those 9D corner rooms look so spacious, I don't mind the low ceilings and obstructed view, DS5 will love having the ceiling his height. Of course I won't argue with a pixie dust upgrade if we get one either! Still 71 days out and our cruise is pretty empty so I think it'll be a while before we find out our room number!

Can someone please tell me how this works and where you go to on the DCL site to book like this? Keep seeing posts about it, but have no clue how it works. Thanks!

So lets say you want to cruise Dec 8th on the Fantasy. You want a Cat 5E. You click to choose your stateroom & a message appears that says the category is in guarantee status. You have 2 options: choose guarantee or cancel. If you choose guarantee, you will be assigned the 5E or higher category (nothing lower). This is in lieu of choosing your specific room. You may very well get a room in the category you booked, or you may get assigned a higher category. It's up to DCL.

I logged in to our Thanksgiving cruise on the Magic yesterday to see if I would have issues w/ that booking like I was having issues w/ our Med. Cruise booking for next summer & I just happened to notice we'd been assigned our stateroom for that Turkey cruise. We booked a 9D GTY and were given a 9C right across the hall from the 3 staterooms that are linked to our reservation (and they chose their rooms from the get-go). So that was nice that DCL took our linked staterooms into consideration when assigning our stateroom.

Ok...so why do people do this? Do you get a cheaper price?

No, not a cheaper price, but there is a chance (and often a good chance) of getting a better cabin type than what the GTY booking was. So say you book an inside stateroom that is GTY. You keep an eye on your sailing and notice that no insides seem to open up, but there are many ocean views available. Therefore, there is a good chance that when the room assigners start assigning for this specific cruise, those that booked the inside GTY will get pixie dusted to an ocean view cabin, thus getting a better stateroom for no more money.

Hope that explains it for you!
