#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?

IGT Wonder 9/14 Panama Canal

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

11

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?

11A Deck 6

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?

Not overly happy, well aware that I booked an inside cabin, hoping for a bit more room in a 10 rather than an 11.

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

N/A
#6. How many days before departure date did you book?

41 days.

The ship seems pretty empty, will try for portside upgrade...

You don't get to choose your room and are assigned one by DCL at some point- usually very close to travel time. In addition, you may not cancel, change your reservation etc. and must pay in full at the time of booking. Hope that helps.
How much is normally saved by booking one of these? Say a VGT?

This is an assignment tracking thread. I suggest starting a new thread if you have a question you want answered, or using the forum search function.

Our first Disney cruise....saved $1050 on room rate! Unbelievable! If you can be flexible, using the VGT rate can be GREAT!

Where are the "tiny or non private" balconies?!?

This is why I'm waiting patiently for 10/27 on the Magic. No VGT available and we wouldn't be happy with IGT or OGT. Historically, FLR rates are a better deal than the *GT rates, so I'm just hoping they release them and we can add a 3rd cruise onto our already booked B2B......

If not, no biggie

Do an internet search for Disney Fantasy and the Tiny Dancer and or cabin 5188. There are also a few balconies where adjoining balconies are set at enough of an angle to view you neighbors space. Additionally, many people like the (I believe 4E) cabins that have normal space with overhang and additional space "in the sun". Don't know how i'd feel about people looking down on my balcony from theirs on a higher deck.

VGT Disney Dream, October 3

14

5C, 7066

Meh. See it as a "Goldilocks" assignment - it could have been worse, could have been better; there are still category 4 rooms for sale.

N/A

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

Booked 40 days out and got room assignment 16 days out
