1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
Two OGTs, Wonder Sept 23rd Pacific Coast Cruise

2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
13

3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
two 9Ds, rooms 1034 and 1036

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
Must admit I'm disappointed. Not only do the rooms not connect, they are on deck 1, right next to the tender lobby. Instead of a big porthole window, we will have two little ones. Feel like I'm in the basement. I got a great discount and I'm on the boat, but not feeling the magic. Hoping to upgrade at the port.

5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
Yes, side-by-side. Disappointed they are not connected.

6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 2 months

NA

6. How many days before departure date did you book? 78 days.

6634 - 7A Navigator's Verandah

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
I would have prefered a 5, but we wanted to try a Navigator's Verandah so this might be the perfect cruise for it. So I am not unhappy. I'm still very pleased with the price we paid for it.

5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
NA

6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 6 months
Quoting myself to update this after reading stateroom reports. It looks like 6634 is one of the secret verandah rooms. So we will have a clear plexiglass verandah with an obstruction that looks like it covers maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the verandah. So that makes me a little happier since we will be able to sit on the verandah and still be able to see the ocean. The overhang looks like it will offer up a bit of privacy too.

Still waiting to hear about the Fantasy Sept. 22 Eastern Caribbean sailing! Of course, GoDaddy has been hacked and crashed so I'm not receiving ANY emails.

Thanks!!! After reading the reports, I got much more excited about it. I really like the plexiglass verandahs so you can see the water while sitting down.

What did you think of the obstruction? Does it take up a lot of the view?

Not sure if I can post this link to pics or not, but here goes:

http://www.*****************/

Just select the link on the home page for Secret Verandah Rooms and it will take you to pics.

HTHs! We've stayed in 7620 on the Magic and loved it!

ETA: Guess the link isn't allowed. Google Disney Cruise Line secret verandah rooms and it should come up for you to go to...hths!

I am getting a little antsy about our room assignment. We sail 9/22/2012. Why is DCL waiting this long to assign rooms? Is this the norm?

Glad to know it is not just me waiting!

LivinADream & Msbmommy99 - It's so tough to wait!!! But, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see anything for another couple of days.

So what do these stand for?

IGT, OGT or VGT

I honestly tried to look around for an acronym list and couldn't find it.

Thanks!
