What about adding the question of how far in advance did you book your cruise? It might give us an idea of whether or not Disney gave upgrades based on the order that people booked. For instance, those that booked last would get the category they booked (if any staterooms were left that had not been booked directly by number) and then Disney would work backwards towards those that booked first-giving out the next available category. Just a thought.

#1. What category GTY cabin did you book? 11B
#2. What category and room # did you get? 11B 5013
#3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 59
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Mixed feelings. When we booked all the available cabins in our price range were GTY and only one category was available for inside with the magical porthole so that's what we booked. I'm not thrilled with the location being forward and right next to Vibe. But I am super excited to be going on the Fantasy and getting to experience the magical porthole. Interestingly, now that the GTY has been assigned our category is no longer GTY and there are quite a few rooms. I'm guessing that plays into the lack of upgrade.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6 What ship are you sailing? Fantasy
#7. What day of the week was you cabin assigned. Wednesday
8. What time of day was your cabin assigned? before 1 PM MT
9. What month is your cruise? October 19, 2013

We are now 2 for 2 -- no upgrade for our GTY.
