Take a look at the picture below. The people at the very top of the picture are standing on Deck 11. Deck 10 is the next deck below them, and doesn't appear to have anyone standing on it. 10658 should be the verandah door that you see to the far right on Deck 10 (the 4th of the 4 that you can see on the right side), set slightly back and somewhat angled toward the corner rather than facing directly backwards.

We have 6X90 and 6X92 (don't remember what the X is, possibly a 1 or 6) aft, connecting cabins and we have another cabin that is also right in the middle/aft with us, with the "hidden" door in the middle.
BUT, looking at Deck 5, it looks like those two cabins would be ideal since if the are booked with families connecting (like I am on Deck 6), the balcony divider can open and they will have LOTS of space, if the hidden door part of the balcony is included. Did that make sense? LOL
I am still wondering how this flag pole thing will work out so we can have our privacy and keep our baloncy door and binds open.
Thanks.

Both deck 5 and 6 aft have larger than normal decks, so they look good in that respect. Both also seem to have a sort of double railing across the back, that could create another layer to try to see through when you're sitting out there. Deck 6 has the added curiousity of the flagpole, while Deck 5 has the access door. Still have yet to see what sort of dividers if any they will be installing back there or if they will be shared verandahs.


Here's a picture showing the deck 5 door opened.

If I had a choice, I'd pick 7506 between the two just because historically starboard has had better views in the existing ports and CC (assuming they back the new ships in like they do with the existing ships.)
I was just looking at these rooms on the deck plan on the DCL website (where you select your room). On that deck plan, these two rooms actually appear to be smaller than the Cat 8C room next door, though they appear to be the same size on the paper and pdf deckplans. So book them at your own risk, recognizing that you won't get any less than you pay for, though you could possibly get a little extra space if the one deck plan is correct.

Because that's how he does it in the Fantasia movie! He falls asleep while directing the brooms, and doesn't realize that they keep going and flood everything.

Of course if they were really carrying the theme through, it seems like they would have errant yellow paint where the brooms are starting to go awry. But I digress...

So, usually, we like an aft verandah on CC side, and we were looking at Cat 5E for our Fantasy cruise. This thread has posed a question now for us ---> if you are going to look down and see a lifeboat and not the water rushing by like on the Wonder/Magic, wouldn't it be better to have a 6A/6B verandah room??? DH says "yes" resoudingly. Any thoughts???

I like your thinking. Plus that could get you higher up the ship, away from the nightclubs on Deck 4, under the 5E rooms, which would be a turnoff for us.

There is a small lip at the floor of the 6A/6B verandahs (about shin high), and some of them are somewhat obstructed (see my original thread) by the metal detailing, so choose carefully. Also, it remains to be seen how they will handle the 5E verandah railings, since there appears to be a small platform where the verandahs could be extended outward, along with some support type projections above that could be used to support some extended veranda separators.

From eariler DCL press release:

Staterooms:
Nearly nine out of 10 of the 1,250 staterooms on the Disney Dream are outside rooms, and of those, 90 percent have a private verandah. To accommodate larger families and groups traveling together, there are 500 connecting doors adjoining staterooms. On connecting verandah staterooms, the partition between verandahs may be opened to create a larger shared balcony.
