We are also GTY. We were GTY last October cruise on the Fantasy. We were assigned a cabin on Day 51 with a nice upgrade. 5E gty to a 4C. We opted to take our chance again with GTY.

I ready that often cabins are assigned between day 50-59. (but not always).

I have also read about 10 days before, 30 days before etc etc.

I do know that I check every day though! It will be assigned in plenty of time to update the FE list.

Thank you Gaporee for the info. We are category 7a, as of now. Maybe we will be fortunate enough for an unexpected upgrade.

We were going to book 7a gty but the day we booked (a week ago) it wasn't available that day. So we did 6B GTY which was the next lowest option. I just looked on the DCL website and a 7a popped up available again today.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see what we get. I kind of like the surprise.

Last year we actually wanted to keep the 5e because of the over sized verandah but ended up being more mid ship and bigger room. So that works too!

I don't book gty because I want a certain area of the ship and like my room assigned right away.

So, I understand what GTY is, but how do you find it? When I look up our cruise, I don't see any options for it. I have seen it as a choice on a few other cruises, but not for ours, yet we have a number of people who have booked GTY. Just wondering for future purposes...

Both times we sailed we went through a travel agent. Online it didn't give us GTY as an option but with the travel agent we were given the GTY option.

I wonder if you can also get GTY if you call Disney Cruise line and specifically asked for it?

80 days until our Cruise!!!

I have all of my magnets printed out. That is, unless I see something else that I like. Have done my on-line checkin, booked the excursion we want......now just waiting until it's time to go!

How do you print your magnets? Last year we printed and then glued tuem to magnet sheets then cut them.

That's exactly what we did last year. We found great magnet sheets at the dollar store last year.

Been busy over here working on Fish Extender gift 'packages'. I have spent hours researching, calculating costs, making up my mind about stuff then changing my mind. I'm happy to be on both lists but wow, those costs add up quickly and its definitely work! Honestly though, I secretly love it!.
