Well we got a nice upgrade that hits all the criteria we wanted to avoid! It looks like an interesting room as it is on the back of the boat and has an extended verandah - which also means it has a smaller room! Oh well. If you book gty that's what can happen.

Our travel agent (who is probably about to kill us) has been wonderful and did call DCL to see what could be done, but all the Oceanview rooms are assigned.

Originally we were booked in a 5B beside 2 other rooms with family. Just looked and the other room flanking their rooms is open so I think we will go back to that. Additional cost of $327 but at this point it doesn't matter anymore! I'll never hear the end of it from my husband.

I would do cartwheels backwards if this happened to us!! I totally understand your reasoning, however I wanted to also mention we specifically booked an aft cabin, 6188 for our June Dream cruise and loved, loved, loved it!! Our next wish list is 8188 as Silverfox97 has mentioned!! Seriously, we loved it and everything about it.

A note about the verandah & your 3 year old. The way the aft rooms are constructed, the railing is curved inward. I'll bet your child can stand under it even (our 5 year old can). I think they would be a better bet than a regular verandah. Check out pics of 9674 here, which similarly to what 8186 would resemble. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=137

Also, I don't know where that seasick stuff comes from - I think the ships motion is similar all over......if he's going to get sick, he's going to get sick (and I hope he doesn't!!!).

Agreed!!! We are also big fans of the aft extended verandah cabins!

Me too!! There are 7 of us traveling in total with 3 rooms. My friend and I have the GTY 5E category right now. At first I was disappointed because my other friends on the cruise had 5B and were both upgraded to 5A with connecting rooms. But this could work in our favor, that looks like a nice view!

I booked last October for our upcoming October 27 cruise. we booked two rooms 11c I believe. I called in December and said are there any less expensive rooms as we are on a really tight budget. She gave me 2 rooms 9D gaurantee. She said we would be getting at least onceanview room but would not know room number. I was thrilled with this because not only were we saving 300 per room but we were also gauranteed to have a oceanview. It was a no brainer. If we were to get a veranda out of all this I think I would faint paying less than an inside but getting a veranda will be awesome. don't get me wrong will be thrilled with an oceanview but one can wish Our very first cruise on the wonder was so nice having a seperate bedroom and living room I think it was a cat 3, sooo nice. now that kids are teens and we are giving them own room for space wise have not been able to swing getting 2 verandas for past two years and getting a little sick of insides. But whatever just happy to be cruising. we will post once we get room assigned.

Here's the stateroom review: http://disneycruiselineblog.com/2012...h-9674-review/

While not your room, it's just below 9674. Good luck convincing your DH

Just got our room assignment and got upgraded from 5E to 5C. I was starting to look forward to that aft veranda so I am a little disappointed. But whatever the room I know we will have fun. =)

We are currently 5E GTY. I am actually hoping we stay 5E because of the location/veranda, but will have fun no matter what cabin we end up with.

Booked the Dream double dip for August 19-24 last week. Booked IGTY and am anxiously awaiting room assignment! We have always had inside cabins, so are just fine with whatever, but would love a little pixie dust! I was told we should get assigned 2 weeks out...that would be next week.

That is the same thing I was hoping for. Hope it works for you. I feel the same that no matter what it is guaranteed fun because you are on a Disney cruise. When is your cruise?

We are sailing on the Disney Dream Aug. 24-29 with the double dip to CC. From what I've read I thought I might have to wait another week to hear anything so I guess I got lucky!
