Could that be an indication (although I know anything can happen, cancellations etc.) of how far up you could be bumpped? For example, we're booked in a 9A GTY but there is nothing listed on the site b/t 9A and 5D. So would the chances be good that if there are no 9A cancellations and we would get bumpped, it could be up to something with a verandah?
Not a dumb question at all!

Considering there are only 10 9A staterooms on Dream & Fantasy, it would seem the upgrade chances are high to begin with, and it also sounds like those with 8's prefer not to give them up.

I also wonder how upgrades are done... if they need oceanview space, do they simply move the 9D GTY's in order to open up the least expensive oceanviews or do they move the 8A GTY's and then the 8B GTY's, on down the line?

We're in the same boat as you for our October cruise - only GTY's between us and Cat 5B - and we're hoping that we end up with two cabins together, and verandah would be awesome!

Got our assignment... maybe?

So I booked 9A GTY on the Magic sailing Feb 1st. Just got a room assignment this morning for Room 6500 (9A). I looked it up and this is a handicap accessible room, which is fine, but it only sleeps 2 and we have reservations for 3. Maybe they just assigned this room as a placeholder and it will change again before sailing???

Just found this thread

We are going for our first ever Disney cruise, sailing March 10 on the Dream. Surprise 40th for hubby! Soooo excited.

Just realized what our GTY booking means We picked 6A and would be happy with that but I guess we'll see. Booked back in October and was happy with the price so went ahead.

We received our stateroom for our 1/24/13 cruise from Miami. We booked a VGT and received Navigator's Verandah. We have our reservation linked with my parents and they put us right next to each other which was nice. We were hoping for an upgrade, but all good! We're just happy to be going...glad to have paid the price of an inside to get a verandah too! We were in the Fantasy in September and we were spoiled with a large aft balcony!!

A GTY is not a rate. It's DCLs way of letting u know that a certain percentage in that category has been sold. You agree to be assigned any room in that category or perhaps one higher if they decide to upgrade you. It's not any cheaper.

Now that would spoil my DH and DD13 way too much!

I did splurge and book a cabana on CC because about a month ago, my DH tried to take off his right index finger with his father's new router. I wasn't certain what type of healing curve he was going to be on so I figured the cabana would be great if he wasn't allowed to swim. Long story short...he didn't need surgery and the finger is healing extremely well. Now that he has seen the cabanas on YouTube, he won't let me cancel it

We used a cruise credit from a failed attempt at an Alaskan cruise in 2011...my father was diagnosed with ALS and having difficulty chewing/swallowing and DCL special services could not guarantee us that they would be able to meet his dietary needs so we canceled the cruise. I'm happy to be going on this cruise...but it is going to be very bittersweet for me to board that boat in two weeks

I'm happy to see that you decided to give DCL a try! I have a 9A GTY booked on the Dream for May 30-2 and I am very excited also. I don't actually know when you receive your number because this is the first time I've booked GTY but from what I have read on this thread sometimes it's 2 months before your sailing while others have found out at the port, so I guess it kinda depends but it sounds like you made a good choice.
