Everything I needed to know I learned in Kindergarten...

We are booked on the April 17, 2011 sailing of the Dream. While it is not our first Disney cruise, it is our first time being in GTY status for our cabin. I choose a category 8A because they were bigger than the other oceanview rooms. It is a "Deluxe Family Oceanview" cabin. Sooo...I have 2 questions: First, what do you think the chances of an upgrade are? There aren't that many 8A's on the ship. Also, if they did upgrade us, could I convince them to give us a 4D (the next Deluxe Family Oceanvuew Room, but with a verandah), since I specifically booked this category for the extra square footage??? Thanks for your thoughts!

It's hard to say since the Dream will be new. Who knows how full it will be. From what I have heard in the past it's luck of the draw. You probably won't get your room number til 30 days out.
I've eaten at 62 out of 247 restaurants at Walt Disney World (25%)
I've eaten at 27 out of 87 quick service/counter service restaurants at Walt Disney World (31%)
I've eaten at 29 out of 73 table-service restaurants at Walt Disney World (40%)
I've eaten at 4 out of 18 signature restaurants at Walt Disney World (22%)
I've eaten at 1 out of 3 dinner show restaurants at Walt Disney World (33%)
Here's my list!

It sounds like you have less than 5 people booked in the cabin and you went for the 8A for extra space for your convenience not because you have 5 people and need the beds. If you would prefer to not take the chance of being upgraded to a regular verandah room (if upgrades would even be available on your sailing) then have it noted on your ressie to not change the category booked.
