    How many passengers is that for?? That's still expensive. We did a 3-night last year 2A 1C FLR Rates in a 5A for $1200!!! That is expensive for a 3-night even without FLR Rates - yikes!!!

    I have a screen shot of the VGT still being offered at 10:19am on 5/31. It was gone when my co-worker checked at 2:30pm.

    I saw that.

    VGT for Dream 8/1, 4, 8, 11 & 15



    I think it's looking pretty good for VGT rates for September. This morning "my" cruise was priced at $1305. It was $1315 when I booked in February with the onboard credit offer -- got $100 obc from Disney for booking. I could pay with my Disney Visa and get $50, so I really got only $50 extra with that deal. I wonder how low the VGT (I'd even take OGT or IGT, probably) would be? If it was $1265 I'd break even, anything lower and I'd save money. Hmmm...I probably couldn't save enough to make it worth having to cancel what I have and play the waiting game though. :upsidedow

    Anyone know what last year's VGT rates were for September 4 nights?

    Seems like right now vgts are running at the same rate as the regular rate of the lowest avail interior on the same sailing. Of course I could be wrong...

    I have been tracking the I O VGT's in an excel spreadsheet for a couple of months now. I'm pretty sure I have seen VGT's about $200-$300 less than insides. I am hopeful for September.

    Thank you! That is quite helpful to me and gives me some idea of what I might expect to see for September. When I checked this morning the lowest inside rate was $210 less than I am paying for a 7A gty.

    Part of my dilemma is that I am using a TA (Dreams). I am concerned that when I see the rate/cruise I want, by the time I contact her and she books it, the rate will have disappeared. :headache:

    Still, I always enjoy planning and changing and re-planning my WDW trips. Not really having anything to plan for the cruise portion is bugging me LOL. The thought of the excitement of repeatedly checking for -GT rates appeals to me haha. Of course, the thought of ending up with no cruise at all does not appeal to me. :rotfl:

    Have your TA put you on a wait list for the date that you want the VGT for. Give them your CC # so they are ready to book it as soon as it comes out and so that you don't miss it.

    It's 2A 2C. I think it's expensive, too, but I prefer to sail off-season so my idea of a good rate for January is different than a good rate in July!

    Yeah - our rate was in Feb 2012. I'm not into 3-night sailings, but sheesh that's a chunk of change for a 3-night DISCOUNTED rate......

    Thanks for replying :)

    We got an IGT for late August 2012 for the Dream, but have not seen any IGT for this summer. Is that your observation also? Thanks.

    So far, all I have seen for August are VGTs on the Dream, 3 and 4 night sailings through August 15th. Hope that helps...

    Thanks. Have you seen IGT or OGT at all for the Dream for 2013? Thanks again.

    April 7, 2013 Bahamas - 4 Night OGT $2,732.88
    April 7, 2013 Bahamas - 4 Night IGT $2,580.88

    Price based on 2 adults and 2 children.
    I started tracking in the beginning of April 2013. Next year the spreadsheet may be useful...

    That's all that I have seen. Mostly all VGTs. :thumbsup2

    Many thanks. I guess the inside and ocean view cabins are selling well for the summer. I think we will jump on the VGT for our late summer cruise if and when it becomes available, :-).

    I see that on May 31, VGT rates went online for the Dream through the August 15 sailings.

    If we are looking at the Oct 6 and Oct 13 Dream sailings, is there any historical perspective about the date when *GT rates will become available? The 90-day PIF for those sailings will be in early July. Likewise, is there any historical perspective about what time these rates come online? 9am eastern?

    For October, I would start looking for *GT dates around mid-to late July. The *GT rates usually come out after 75 days prior to the sailing. So find out the PIF date for your sailings and start looking after that date.

    We booked IGT on the Dream in January. Not sure if you were asking if there was IGT at all for 2013 or for summer!
