    #1. What category GTY cabin did you book? Vgt
    #2. What category and room # did you get? 5C
    #3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 10
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Overall- yes. My only disappointment is that we are located nowhere near our family members (linked reservations) who selected their cabin. This only bugs me because almost all of the other vgt folks in my saling ARE on that deck so I know they could have accommodated
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? No
    #6 What ship are you sailing? Fantasy
    #7. What day of the week was you cabin assigned. Tuesday
    8. What time of day was your cabin assigned?mid morning
    9. What month is your cruise? January

    Hello! My family is booked into a VGT for March 17 on the Fantasy. I just received out travel document, but no stateroom assignment. How long have others waited for their assignment in this category? I realize I can’t join FE and other activities without knowing the stateroom yet. Feeling anxious

    You can join the group, people understand about VGT. Emails or phone calls can help you get your information to the group.

    Question. If I book now and the cruise I want gets a Florida resident discount, am I going to be able to get credited the lower rate?

    Possibly. In the past, FLR rates were the only special offer that could be applied to an existing reservation, even after PIF and without penalty. DCL may or may not change that rule.

    Enjoy your cruise!

    Yippee! First cruise, just got my stateroom assignment today.

    #1. What category GTY cabin did you book? 8C
    #2. What category and room # did you get? 8C, Floor 7 forward
    #3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 45
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Pleasantly surprised we got a room in (according to reviews) a very quiet area with an awesome view of castaway cay!!! I wouldn't have minded a slight upgrade to 8A or 8B to get something closer to mid-ship, but to be honest, I am just relieved they did not "upgrade" us to an "undesirable" obstructed-view verandah room in a noisy teen club area (we have young children with early bedtimes), which was my fear going into this. All told, I am very happy we got the room in our selected category of 8C, since I think my kids and I will really enjoy our large window-seat porthole.
    5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? n/a
    #6 What ship are you sailing? Dream
    #7. What day of the week was you cabin assigned. Today (Tuesday)
    8. What time of day was your cabin assigned? PM (I checked this morning, early afternoon, and it only showed up when I checked at 9pm)
    9. What month is your cruise? April

    I have a 5e GTY for late November this year, how do you find out when your room is assigned. Do they email or do you have to check reservation? Also does your cruise have to be paid in full before room is assigned? Thanks!

    They did not email me—I just had to keep checking the My Reservation page on the Disney Cruise website. I’m not sure if payment in full is a requirement before a room can be assigned, but as a practical matter it seems like most room assignments happen within a couple of months of sailing, so you will be past the pay in full mark by that point.

    They are usually assigned after PIF. I want to say about 45 days out is kind of average - it's been a while since I did not consider my assignment an upgrade the only time I've tried it. I'd rather select my own cabin.

    They technically can leave it as long as embarkation day, but usually do not.

    And you're correct that they do not email you - either for GTY or *GT (the latter being what this thread is about).

    I am trying to find a place to share my joy (so forgive me but doing it here) but just got my 5E notice that we got 8682 on the Fantasy!!! I'm overjoyed because we aren't risk takers when it comes to GTY (last time we did it was on our first cruise in 2013), we had 4A on deck 10 booked but I said what the heck, I can save $750 if I book 5E so I did and so excited!!!!

    #1. What category GTY cabin did you book? 5E
    #2. What category and room # did you get? 5E, 8682, huge verandah, HA
    #3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 51
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Overjoyed! We originally had a 4A on deck 10 booked but wasn't sure about the noise issues on deck ten plus the overhang blocking a view so we decided to take a risk and save $750 and book 5E and it worked out!
    5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? n/a
    #6 What ship are you sailing? Fantasy
    #7. What day of the week was you cabin assigned. Today (Tuesday)
    8. What time of day was your cabin assigned? AM (*email came in around 11am)
    9. What month is your cruise? May

    *actually since I see the discussion above on the email - my email came in today around 11am because they were notifying me about the move from Tortola to St. Maarten and not about my stateroom. That email prompted me to go and check if they assigned one in "My Reservations" on DCL's site and they did so I guess I technically did NOT get an email when they assigned my room.

    So I am on the March 28 Magic. I booked an OGT 9b and still haven't received my room yet. I have checked several times so still waiting.

    You could find out as late as when you check in at the port. There is no time schedule for when they are assigned except "prior to boarding".

    Was there a separate thread somewhere that was tracking room assignments? Thought I had seen one awhile back.
