    Booked on the Fantasy last week for a cruise that leaves next week! Booked a VGT, no idea of my category since it doesn't say it anywhere in my reservations, weird huh? I think it was a 5D though.

    Assigned today

    Category:
    04A
    Deck: 9
    Location: AFT

    Was fully expecting Deck 10 (blah), so am super happy now!

    Great upgrade. Normally a VGT does not have a category tied to it. You are just guaranteed a veranda. A GTY will have a category tied to that. You did great!

    It definitely did have a category though! I made sure I read that part before I booked, and I knew it was a 5, but not sure on the letter! I didn't want to end up with a Navigator Verandah room, so that I why I made sure it had a category!

    I just checked the current rate for a cat 4 on our cruise, and it's about $8,000 right now, so I think I did good also since we paid about $2,500 less than that for the three of us!

    I have a IGT for the Wonder in November. It will be my first Disney cruise. I am a little nervous about where I will end up. I hope the cruise is all that my sister has made it out to be. Two adults and 0 kids. :)

    Can anyone tell me how we know when they’ve updated the Florida res rates weekly? They used to put a date on them but since they’ve changed the format, I can figure it out. Does anyone see a date change on it? It used to say “these discounts are good through xx/xx date.

    Hey DCLCrazy, are you talking about DCL's website? Or the list of discounts that comes out here on the DCL forums pretty often?

    Their website. Sorry, I didn’t make that clear. :thanks:
    K, thanks for clarifying! And I'm not sure I know the answer to that. I'm also a FL resident and the cruise we just booked for early Sept (booked in late May on a FL res. rate) is the very first FL resident discounted cruise I've ever booked.

    I do not recall there ever being a "good until (date)" posted as they clearly state each of those rates is good for up to 50 cabins. Plus they generally reserve the right to change rates at any time.

    Over the years it seems that DCL changes rates frequently. I know the CM rates officially come out on Thursday on the Disney intranet, but when I worked for the company, those rates/availability could and would change a LOT more often than just weekly. You might call about the FL rates and ask, but if it was me, I would keep stalking the site as the rates change pretty often in my experience.

    It seems they've had a LOT of discounted rates of late, which is interesting. Not sure I know the reason. But to be able to book a FL resident discounted rate 3.5 months in advance was pretty amazing IMO. :yay: I'm referring to the Fl resident Gtd Cat 5C rate for the Fantasy. I thought it was a VERY good rate for 2 people for under $3000 for at least a 5C stateroom. I don't think my answers are what you were hoping for, but it's all I know. :cutie:
