These assignments look great!

I wonder what my sold out June 16th cruise will look like since it's one of the discounted ones offered to DVC members where they most likely booked the best veranda category available since I believe all categories were offered at the same price. I'm thinking in this case we VGT'ers will be assigned lower categories.

Not complaining though- I'm happy with my price for a balcony, wherever it may be :-)

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 11 (Monday)
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 11C #2525
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Not particularly happy, considering everyone else seemed to get at least a little upgrade. Yes, I feel it was a leftover.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 90

So for those who were wondering if your CC status, or being a DVC member might help in getting some kind of upgrade, the answer in our case is no. We are Gold CC and also DVC but not even a teeny, tiny upgrade. Oh well, we will still have a fun trip

You're already assigned? I booked an OGT for our June cruise (well, 2 actually) and I'm STILL waiting! I'm hoping that I'll hear next Monday, which is 12 days out...

How did you book an OGT and get a VERANDAH? Did you book OGT or a specific category GTY?

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
VGT
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
9 days out on a Tuesday
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
4D
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
Very happy. I booked with less than 2 weeks before departure...took awhile to convince everyone. I am also really, really surprised we have connecting rooms this late in the game! Didn't particularily need connecting since its grandparents in the other room, but I was scared they were going to be on a different deck or all the way at the other end, so that worked out great. First cruise so hoping it's a good location.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
Connecting!
#6. How many days before departure date did you book?
14 days!

Now I'm confused. I thought we had a 4d and they connected because that's what I got off cruisecritic. I just went and put in a fake reservation on the DCL site for another cruise and it came up as 5D and connected with the room on the other side. On the wdwinfo site it shows up as a 4B in a review, but a 4D in the plans of the decks. I might be reading the connecting arrows wrong. Is it the little arrow in both rooms pointing to the interior or is the small arrow closer to the verandah that means connecting?

Please include:

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT on the Fantasy
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 3 days before the cruise
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 11a
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? I was happy. Got a good category room out of the main traffic flow and fairly close to the elevator
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 5 days

I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...
I got room 8589.
