05E GTY .. upgraded to 4C

This will be our first Disney Cruise in October.

We had a 05E GTY reservation. At the 51 day mark we received our cabin number assigned in the 4C category.

We were hoping to keep the 05E but is 4C considered a 'good' upgrade from the 5E?

It will have the Murphy bed in addition to the sofa bed and bunk-type bed. So, your kids can choose where they want to sleep!

Sorry, I had been told that by a DCL CM but now realize that info isn't correct!

I have learned how to check though, if you go to the cruise booking website, enter 4 people, choose that category and see if that room # appears (you may have to try several cruise dates though to find it), then try again with a booking for 5 and see if it's still an option...

I actually looked up the room number. No murphy bed for our specific cabin.

It will be great having a bigger room!

And my opinion would be no - I'd much prefer the oversized 5E aft verandah to a bigger room.

That's the reason I started this thread. I know alot of people who really Want the 5E because of the veranda. Besides the 4C being a bit bigger, I know for sure our specific cabin does not have the murphy bed, and I guess the 4C location is 'better' depending on what you're looking for.

I dunno. I'd still like the 5E but just looking into the positives for the 4C.

Either way, we're happy just to be sailing soon.

And next time if you really want the 5E, add a "do not upgrade" on your reservation, which you can do on a GTY.

Either way, you will enjoy yourself

We booked this trip through a travel agent. I didn't know I could add "do not upgrade" on our reservation. Good to know for next time! Thank you

You are correct that is is just a request, but the people putting requests on are in the minority. We've been lucky enough that the 4 cruises we put the "do not upgrade" request on, we've gotten our specific room.

And yes you can put the request on even if you are in GTY to try to get a room within that category. You cannot make any special requests with the IGT/OGT/VGT rooms, but you certainly can with a GTY.

We also booked a 5E FTY for our 10/20 cruise and I was "dead set" on getting an oversized verandah so I asked them to add a "Do not upgrade" note on my reservation.

It worked! I got my assignment last week, and they gave me an awesome 5E! So excited!
My point is, it will help for next time if you add that. Have fun!
