There is also a big difference between VGT/OGT/IGT and GTY. I believe most posts here are for GTY assignments. There is another thread for the *GT assignments, which tend to be assigned at 13 days or less before sailing.

We are not so patiently waiting for a GTY room assignment for one of the couples in our party. They booked an 11B, with a room assignment almost a year ago. The day of final payment and the paid in full receipt came via email it was discovered that our TA booked two of us on the 3/23/13 sailing of the Fantasy and one of us on the Magic sailing for the same day. After several days of back and forth of the TA blaming Disney... it was resolved, the TA paid the extra $600 but the couple lost their room assignment and had to go GTY. Hoping and praying for some major pixie dust that they get upgraded... At this point they don't even know about the whole fiasco!!! So far I've been able to handle it and not get them stressed out!!

Hi all!

Can you answer my questions as I've read through the thread and I'm unsure about a few things. We booked the 12 night Med cruise (with Venice) just under a year ago. I think it might even have been the weekend the rates were released.

We went for a 11C GTY room because it was within our price range and having stayed in one before we are more than happy with that category. At this moment in time on 10B, 9 (A,B,C&D) and 4 (A&E) are available.

The question is:

Are GTY rooms more likely to get an upgrade when the ship is nearly full or pretty empty?

Looking at what is currently available onboard and the fact we don't yet have a room number, what do you think the chances of an upgrade to a 10 or 9 is?

Thanks

Upgrades are random and follow no rhyme or reason. DCL gives pixie dust to people with room assignments and without.

I have a question that hopefully someone here can answer for me.
When Disney offers a GTY special its usually after the PIF date I think.
But when the offer comes out if it does, can I book that only on DCL or will Costco have the offer as well?

Thank you!
Lori

GTY is not the same as the after-PIF lower rates that are VGT/OGT/IGT. This thread is for GTY bookings, which are not restricted and only mean that a room in that category cannot be assigned yet. They are not discounted.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.
