Question When canI expect my room #?

We are sailing on September 1st on the Dream and do not have a room assignment yet. When should I expect that?

It sort of depends on what type of guarantee you have. A "regular" GTY that specifics a specific category (9B, 5A, 7C, whatever), those are generally assigned around 30-45 days out, but have been as far out as 60 days.

A last minute restricted *GT (IGT,OGT, VGT) those are usually assigned about 2 weeks out.

That said, any guarantee (regardless of type) can be assigned at anytime between original booking date up to, and including, embarkation date.

We'll be on the 9/1 Dream sailing as well. I'm guessing the OP booked a GTY because I don't think there have been *GT rates for September yet. It seems as if many people lately have been getting their GTY assignments about 54 days out, but that hasn't kept me from checking every day! One thing that could throw a monkey wrench into things is if DCL does offer *GT rates (or FL resident rates) in the coming days. It seems like that would delay the assignments as well as complicate the process.

We got our GTY room number at 50 days last year for our November cruise...I stalked our reservation like paparazzi on Justin Beiber waiting for that stateroom to appear! For our next cruise, I bit the bullet, price wise and just picked a stateroom.

Weird. I booked through the Disney cruise website some months back for the late August '13 Eastern Carribean and got a room number right away, emailed to me with my reservation confirmation.

did anybody book a 7a and get a higher category? Just wondering because it doesn't seem like there is a lot of 7a.

I'm on the Sept 1st too and yes, I've been stalking the website even though I know it's been around day 55, 54ish.

What I'm worried about is this new PIN number email for upgrades. Seems to me they don't want to keep giving away the upgrades so they are now trying to sell them in advance. I'm hoping that a mass emailing of pin codes doesn't stall them assigning us our rooms, and completely eliminating any hope of "free" upgrades for us.

And before any smart alecs come on and say anything about free upgrades: Yes, I know not to expect one. No, I'm not holding my breath either way. Yes, I booked a room (GTY 7a) that I will be more than happy to stay in, since having a verandah, any verandah, always seemed like a dream that was out of reach for me!

Just having a thought and making a comment

We had a 7A GTY for our May 30th sailing on the Dream and were upgraded to a 5B so it is possible!!
