#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on Disney Dream (2/27)
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 10 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 5A #10028
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Very happy; great location, one deck below adults only areas, which is great since we are traveling sans kiddos. I would not have picked to be right outside elevators, but reports are that the forward elevators are pretty quiet. Saved a bundle going VGT (at least $500)!
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6How many days before departure date did you book? ~40 days

Fwiw, I was watching cruise fish on this one. It was in the 70s when we booked, dipped down to the 30s a month later, then went back up to the 50s a week or two before, then ended back in the 30s.

mydisneyfamily explained things perfectly but my brain is thinking you might have wanted the abbreviation translation too so here goes:

IGT stands for Inside Guaranteed stateroom
OGT stands for Oceanview Guaranteed stateroom
VGT stands for Verandah Guaranteed

These rates come out 'roughly' and I coin that loosely, seventy-five days before sailing (usually just after the balances have been paid by guests who've booked).

If you book one of these you have to:
-pay the full amount in full at the time of booking
-cannot make guest name changes or additions
-accept where the stateroom is located on the ship (you of course select category)

I booked a VGT on the Fantasy last week for the 4/5/2014 Eastern Caribbean. My question - how do I know when a cabin is assigned??? Saved a ton of $$$$ on the current rate so I'm sure we'll be happy with the room!!!

You have to keep checking your reservation in the DCL site. They do not notify you of your cabin assignment. Just look at your booking and in the stateroom details or whatever they will update it from VGT to a cabin #

Booked when all rooms are GT status

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? 7AGT on Disney Dream (3/20)
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 7 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? All cats were GT status when we booked so we booked least expensive Verandah 7A. We received 5A on Deck 10.
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Room is fine. We have always had a 6 so it will be neat to see Murphy bed and how the "extra" sq ft. feel. Would have preferred aft as we had requested, but I am not sure they even see requests when assigning a GT status room.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6How many days before departure date did you book? ~9 days This is a last minute trip for DH and I. We always sail with the three kids and wanted to go once where we could just do all the things WE wanted to do! LOL

AFAIK you have to book cat 4 or better to get the murphy bed and extra interior space.

VGT-the dreaded 5524

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on Disney Dream (5/8/14)
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 56 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Booked 7A, got 7A-5524.
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Not sure-there are a lot of warnings about this cabin-concerns about privacy due to oversized balcony next door. On the plus side-it is a cruise, there is some type of balcony and if my neighbors are staring into my room and see something they don't like-their problem, not mine. Plan to due a trip report/post pics because even though there were lots of warnings, no actual pictures.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6How many days before departure date did you book? 57 days

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

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

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
7a, 5136

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Definitely a "left-over" but it is what I paid for. I paid $500 less than I could have reserved this room for, so overall I am happy. Hubby is thrilled with the Navigator's Verandah. I would have preferred to be on starboard side for Castaway Cay instead of Port Side. At the end of the day, we will be on another Disney cruise, so we are thrilled!

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

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