#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT Dream November 7th
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 9 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 4E 5662 & 5652
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Idk, last time we cruised we were in same location just on deck 10, and have no other experiences so we are not sure what to expect. The reviews say these rooms have oversized verandas, but I m concerned about the view because of the life boats.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Yes
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 57 days

They pulled the *GT rooms off the available room list for 11/16 Fantasy sailing... hope that means assignments are coming soon!

I noticed the Royal Concierge Suite suddenly became available, too... we could dream, right?

The waiting is a fun new twist for me.. Ive booked guarantees on other cruise lines in the past, but have always received assignments almost immediately and well in advance of the cruise date. This certainly amps up the pre-cruise excitement!

Just wondering how other people are checking to see if their rooms have been assigned...?

I have just been logging into my reservation on the Disney site and clicking on "Reservation Summary" to see if my room is still listed as a guarantee or has a room #. I assume this would change as soon as the room is assigned.

Hoping we see some assignments this afternoon!

Still waiting for the Nov 15th Magic. Will be curious to see when it happens, it may be late with how they closed a the sailing with a lot of rooms open. My guess is they are waiting till last minute to see which rooms are brought up to DCL standards before assigning.

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Happy. Read its near laundry room but most say no noise issues.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Yes. 4 other staterooms with family and we're all right next to each other. (7594/7596/7598/7600/7602). Funny thing is the family of 5 that booked 2 VGTs (linked reservations) did not get assigned to what looks to be the connecting staterooms (7600-7602). They got 7594 and 7600.
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 62 days

Wow... hard to wait that long!! Ive been waiting on the 11/16 Fantasy assignments, but I almost booked the 11/15 Magic... wonder if the delay on your sailing is Magic-specific because of the renovations or whether DCL is overloaded right now in general...

Anyone else contacted DCL about assignments?
