Fantasy Verandah's

My travel agent just booked us in category 5E. How can I find out if a particular state room has the white wall instead of plexiglass? Would TA be able to find out for me?

From the DCL website: Category 5E: Decks 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 – Oversized Private Verandah, some with Whitewall

FYI, the white wall verandahs on the Fantasy/Dream are not like the white wall verandahs on the Magic/Wonder. On the Magic class, the full railing wall is solid white. On the Dream class, the white wall only extends about 1/3 of the way up from the deck, the upper part is plexiglass.

Do you have a cabin #? There are many photos floating around. I have a 5E booked, the white portion is only about knee- high.

Thanks for your help. I have 9174 & 9176. I tried googling those staterooms but didn't come up with anything. I also called Disney and they said they don't break the rooms down that way by which have the white wall and which don't. I figured if I was spending the money for a balcony that I don't want the obstruction but if it is only knee high that is not bad at all.

There are two trip reports here on the DIS about 9174 on the Dream - the Fantasy's sister ship - that you may find helpful.
