Room 5028 on the Fantasy.

Hey there! I had booked one of the 05E rooms (the ones with the oversized verandah) on the Fantasy for Earth Day week. It looks like on my reservation I am now at room 5028. It's right near the theater and I'm worried about loudness factor. Could I call Disney and ask for the 05E room? I was GTY, but I'm worried about noise. My mom says it looks like we've been downgraded.

Just back from Dream 4 day - room 5042, 4E. I thought it would be ok, just expected noise before, during and after the stage productions. Not so ok. Noise (I'm not sure from what) basically from mid day - 12:30am or so each day. I could definately tell when the ship changed direction, i.e. backing into Castaway, because the engines were so loud. We weren't in our room all that much so it could have been worse. The extended verandah was very nice as was the general location of the room because there wasn't much foot traffic past the door and it was near the fwd elevators.

Were you a 5E GTY? or a VGT? If you had a 5E GTY, you should not have a lesser category room assigned to you. You will either be placed in a 5E or higher room. 5028 is a 4E, so an upgrade.

I booked the 5E for the big verandah. I'm just worried about the kids and the loud factor. Also I don't want my magnets or FE stuff swiped. I booked GTY. Everyone at work was like "you 'upgraded' but it looks like a downgrade next to all the kids." (And I have no issue with kids, I just don't want a loud room.)

It is an upgrade because it's a 4E. It is still an over sized veranda.

From the Disney Website:
Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah
Category 04E
Help
Sleeps:
3 or 4
Size:
299 sq. ft. including verandah
Deck:
5
View:
Oversized Private Verandah

Here are some reviews from nearby staterooms with the same category they look good.

We booked GTY 5D and are hoping for lots of pixie dust to get upgraded to a extended veranda.

I doubt you will have a problem with magnets etc being swiped or kids near your door, even though it is the floor with all the kids activities. There was never any foot traffic past our door and we hardly ever saw kids. The clubs are far away from the fwd cabins.
