    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? OGT
    #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? 9C - 7004. This room is in the very front facing straight out.
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Not too sure yet. I've booked these guarantee rooms in the past and ended up with a lot better than what we had booked, but I knew that was the chance I was taking. For our cruise in August, I had booked 2 inside rooms and was assigned 2 verandah rooms which was great. I'm not sure how I will like this location as it is as far forward as you can go and the window is not one of the large ones you can sit in; it's medium size and on a slant. But I'll probably get in there and love it. After all, any room on a Disney cruise is better than not being on a Disney cruise.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 6 weeks

    VGT on Wonder
    13 days
    7a
    We are very happy with our assignment, even though it is technically category 7a, it is one of the "secret verandas" so we have clear plexiglass instead of a solid wall below the railing. There is a partial obstruction but the room has great reviews.
    N/a
    We booked approx. 45 days prior to departure date.

    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. IGT - Fantasy - 11/24/12
    #2. 12
    #3. 11A - #8143
    #4. I think so. You always hope you are the one with the super magical upgrade (inside to verandah ;-) ) but we got what we purchased so no complaints. Room is right next door to the laundry. May be extra convenient or could be noisy. We shall see.
    #5. N/A
    #6. Around 60 days

    4. I couldn't believe it!

    I called DCL to make sure there wasn't a mistake! Even if we hadn't had the upgrade I would have been happy to just be on the ship, but this was the most amazing surprise!

    16 days

    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    Cat 5A - 9140

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    Location and room are fine. Standard balcony room. Nothing extra special, but nothing wrong with it either. I am actually happier that we are slightly aft than forward as it should be easier getting to the areas that we will travel to the most frequently.

    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
    N/A. Only booked 1 room, however, we were assigned a connecting room. Hopefully, this won't be an issue (we are traveling with a 2yo)

    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?
    I don't recall exactly, but I believe it was between 75-90 days out.

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?I saved 600+ by moving to Dec 1st and added a day.. so I am more than happy :) location will mean a trek to the drink station etc.. which may help keep me from gaining 4,000 pounds.

    Based on what I've read on this page, 16 days seem to be when I should expect our room assignment.

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Not thrilled, we will probably try to upgrade at port. We had a similar room on the Fantasy and the vibration was horrible.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Booked only one room VGT, booked another room in 11C GTY, they were assigned a room on the 2nd floor 16 days out.

    Can someone clarify...I just changed our reservation this week from inside rm to an ocean view, and here is our status online: stateroom GTY, category 9A. Our cruise is in April. Are our chances good for an upgrade or is this just a guarantee that we'll be in at least a porthole room?

    This is just a guarantee that you'll get at least a 9A! We booked my in-laws in a 9A GTY last summer and they got their assignment about 75 days out and sure enough...9A. GTY is different than an OGT (meaning you can get any porthole/outside room)

    Ok thanks, now it makes sense. I really just care that we get some natural sunlight, so if it's a porthole in 9A, that's great.:thumbsup2 it would be different if it were a 7 day cruise, it's only 4 so we'll never be in the room. I don't want it be pitch dark when we wake up in the morning!

    We had room 6150 on the Dream and it was awesome! It was quiet and no vibrations. I guess it's a bit further down the hall than 6180, but it was great!
