    We were on deck 2 on The Dream last year and absolutely loved it! It is convenient to everything in my opinion (except the pool area). I'd choose it again in a heart beat!

    thanks for starting this thread, I am watching the Galveston cruises at each PIF date to
    see if they open up the IGT/OGT/VGT rates, and am considering cancelling my reservation nearer my PIF date of FEb 25th,
    as I am travelling in May and believe it will be harder to fill the ship, therefore,
    I could get a sweet deal on a Verandah
    (right now I have an inside booked for two for $2500):scratchin

    Looks like those doing these rates have been given good rooms!:)

    How do you know when they finally assign your room? Do you just keep checking, or do they email you?

    About 15 days out and we are still waiting for a IG room assignment. Is this normal? Some cruise newbies in my group are getting nervous. :confused3

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT, Wonder November 4/12
    #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? 7A #6134
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Reasonably happy, since the location is convenient and it has a real balcony (albeit slightly obstructed). This is one of the four "secret" verandah rooms which are listed as having a Navigator's Verandah but in fact have a regular balcony.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 25 days

    Ajojo - it seems the norm for assignment of these restricted categories is about 12 days or less before sailing, so I don't think your cruise group needs to be nervous.

    11C GTY Disney Dream 12/13

    48
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room #
    11A Connecting Inside stateroom deck 8
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment :
    I'm fine. Expected 11C but got a wee bit of an upgrade to 11A. Still an inside but higher deck. Would have preferred a non connecting stateroom and would have loved an ocean view since it seems like there are a lot of rooms still available on this cruise. I'm still excited about going on this cruise, though!

    N/A

    Ok all you smart disboarders...is there any sort of formula or algorithm to guess at the type of cabin you'll get?

    We booked a VGT cabin for a Dec 1st cruise, and currently when I go to the Disney cruise website, only 4A-D verandah cabins are left.

    does that mean they sold out of the lower grade cabins or do they keep some of those to give out to the VGT purchasers? Also, is the assignment influenced at all by whether you've been on prior Disney cruises (this will be our third)?

    It seems like most folks are ending up really pleased with their room assignments.

    we'll be happy with whatever we get (since we got a screaming price on the cruise)...but I can't help but hope for some pixie dust. :)

    Check online frequently under "Get Reservation" - it will show up under "Reservation Summary".

    I just wanted to say thank you to all that have posted. I was checking everyday for my assignment thinking it would surely be there by now. Now I see the majority of people didn't get assigned until 10-12 days. Now I'll relax about it until I'm at 12 days.

    I stayed in this room for 2 weeks. I loved it and will be booking a 7A again. Loved the bench and the protection from the wind and cold. It was extremely noisy the first 2 nights. The rattling in the ceiling kept me awake. I talked to guest services and they had maintenance do major work on the ceiling. Completely fixed the problem. For our troubles they put Cars themed sheets the rest of the trip and have me a DCL robe to use. Also the deck manager constantly checked in to make sure things remained ok. Nice little touches. Very appreciated.
