    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on Fantasy
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 12
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Cat 4 E Room 5160
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? This room is given only to parties of 3. The extended Balcony is great. However very loud location!!! Has strange water swishing noise at night. Should be a Cat 5. It is not a bigger room, but bigger balcony.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 2 1/2 months
    Great price and I would do it again.
    I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...[/QUOTE]

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT on 9/12/12 Magic
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 14
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Cat 11B Room 6323
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Definitely got a leftover - very disappointed , but not unexpected given the full ship. Good deck - but, backing right up to the service elevator which is going to be the pits early in the mornings - and on the last night for luggage!
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 35 days

    We can't complain too much, I guess. We paid $1100 with all taxes for 2 adults - 5 nights. That's a little over $200 per night for room, board, entertainment, transportation to and from Canada -- and it's still a Disney Cruise! Just hoped for a bit more pixie dust...

    Although this cruise was a great price I knew pixie dust would be very limited since they filled up the ship so nicely with the DVC offer of a verandah cabin for super cheap. However I agree that $1100 for 2 people for 5 night is really good no matter what room you are in.

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? I'm pretty happy, it's not an upgrade but it's the best in the 11 category that I could have hoped for. Deck 6, midship, nonconnecting room, nothing to complain about! This will be a lot of firsts for us since we always book deck 2 aft and have always had a split bath.

    I got all excited when I saw that you had posted here (hoping that you had gotten an assignment).

    Yeah, if our cruise follows the same pattern, we should be seeing something on the 10th.

    Sorry to get your hopes up, I have been lurking on this site just to gather information...I did see some get assignments as early as 14 days....and some as late as 6. I will be curious to see when the cruise the week before us gets theirs.

    Hi Everyone! I'm new here...but definitely not a NEW Disney Fan.

    We recently travelled on DCL Dream January 8-12, 2012. We had decided last minute as we travel to Florida every year and this time were staying a bit longer than usual. I decided to see if there was any Disney cruises departing during the time we were there! Fortunately for us...not only was there a cruise that would work with our schedule but it was on SALE!! For us that was amazing since I would have to book 2 rooms since we have 2 adults & 4 children (8 yrs and under!!):cool1:

    So...to answer all your questions:

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
    VGT
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
    I think it was approximately 2 wks prior
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    Category was 05B Deluxe Oceanview Room with Verandah Room #s 8652 & 8654
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?We were extremely happy with our room assignment:yay:
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?Luckily, we got adjoining rooms!!!
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?I think I booked approximately 3wks prior to departure as it was a last minute idea

    I am so happy that we booked this cruise as I've been wanting to go on a Disney Cruise for a very long time (12 years ago!!)

    I hope I can find another VGT Sale or any sale so we can afford to go again!!

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT, Wonder 9/16 Pacific Coast
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 06A (Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah), Room 6148, solid white wall verandah (not plexiglass), aft
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Very happy - other cabins above and below so noise level should be minimal. Thrilled with having a balcony at all, but would have loved a plexiglass one.

    I have been following this post and find it very interesting.
    I have gone on quite a few Disney cruises but have always booked when they first opened up.
    I have my first Cruise out of Galveston On May 26th of next year and since we are driving to port it may be a good time to try to get a IGT,OGTmor VGT.
    My questions are; Do most cruisings offer these, except I am sure very popular Holiday weeks? Is the price really that much less ? and When they post these guarantees do you book them right away or do they even get lower if you wait till closer to the Cruise date, or does the guar rate just stay the same. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.:cloud9:

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Very happy - the room location looks great. It is close to the elevators which is really good for us because my mom walks with a cane. But I wish I could find out more about the room - still looking for reviews. So far I saw one that said it was quiet. We've never had a verandah before on DCL and I want to know if it is a whitewall or plexiglass.

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
    ---VGT, category 6B on the Dream for September 20th, 2012

    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
    ---17 days

    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    ---We got category 4E, cabin 5162

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    ---I really can't complain too much. It's really close to the aft elevators, and it has an oversized balcony! It's just two of us, so I'm not concerned about the size of the room because apparently this room is a bit smaller than others in that category. I've never been on a cruise, so I don't really know what to expect, but I cannot complain. Wish I was a few decks higher, but I paid for a verandah, and I got a verandah. :) We were bumped up two categories, so yay! I'm still going to keep checking it every single day just in case they decide to move things around.

    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
    ---just one room this time.

    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?
    ---27
