Haha! Sorry.

GTY is a "guaranteed" cabin category where the passenger is not immediately assigned a cabin number.

A PM is a private message! ;-)

Got yeah...so the cabin number they send you when you book online is not a guarantee? They sent us a email with confirmation when we booked and gave us a cabin number

Princesses and 5 yr olds... :-)

Do you think it's worth it to try to do something princess-ey during the day in Disney or do you think the cruise will offer enough opportunity for my daughter to get her fill of princesses?

I think it depends on how princess-oriented your daughter is! :-) For Lilia, there is plenty of princess interaction on the ship and she wants to ride rides on her WDW day. One of the things we love about the cruise is more personal character interaction. Some little girls will still probably want to meet the princesses at the Magic Kingdom, even if they already saw them on the ship. This is made much easier now that there's a princess meeting spot right inside the park. Just be sure to get there early or grab a FastPass for it, because I heard it gets crazy!

No, if they already gave you a cabin # then you are all set. Only people who specifically book a "GTY" fare are not immediately given a number. It means that they pay a (usually) lower fare in exchange for not being able to request any specifics about their cabin other than the category. They are then guaranteed their category, but not a specific cabin.

I see from your previous posts that you have late dining - we do too! Does your 6yr old make it all the way to the late dining or is it better to plan to have kids eat earlier at the kids club? Or does everyone just shift late on the cruise (late nights/late mornings)?
She is a night owl. She did fine. She actually did not go to the kids club on the Dream.

We are lunching in the castle. But she is more pop princess than princess these days.

We are excited to be part of this cruise and a welcome and congrats to all who have made it in the fe. We have started our fish extender shopping and have to admit I was getting worried it was going to more than expected but the cut off works for us. Thanks Sonia and Mike
