Please include:

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

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...
1) cat 11c GTY
2) 52 days out
3) 10b rm 2543
4) very happy, but since some of the 11c GTY I know on our cruise got 9d, less than entirely thrilled. I think this is one of those things where if I hadn't known other people I would've been happier.
5) just one
6) 5 months in advance

Magic sailing Jan 4th

Hi all,

Such a great idea for a thread. Here is my information so hope it helps someone else out.

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on Magic
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 16
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 6A - don't want to post room number but it's on deck 5 and we have a split bath which I really like.
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? I'm happy with it. I would have taken a 7A gladly for the price we paid for it compared to what it costs to book one outright. Plus I'm on a boat which is better than any day at work.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Only my DH and myself going to celebrate our 11th anniversary.
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 21 Days

Honestly, I disliked the 9D rooms and would prefer a 10B! Hope you have a great cruise!

I've booked an IGT for a Jan cruise and honestly am hoping for anything except a 9D! There is a lot of floor space but just disliked the weird porthole in the corner!

How do you find out about your assignment? Do you have to keep checking or is it emailed to you? We should get our assignment any day now, So I just wanted to know if I should keep checking.

I'm curious too. We're on the Jan. 12 Fantasy Eastern Caribbean and have a VGT reservation. We should be hearing something soon!

You just have to keep checking. Disney doesn't notify you of your cabin assignment until you get your printed cruise documents.

Just checked the website. We're in stateroom 5532.
1. VGT on Fantasy
2. Not sure, just checked the site and it was there. I guess we expected that we would get an email or something.
3. Room 5532 not sure what category this is
4. This seems to be the lowest level verandah room, so I don't think we were given anything extra other than what we booked
5. N/A
6. About 60 days
