    Booked VGT on the Magic.
    Got assigned05C, room 6608.
    Looks like a great room but reviews have me nervous saying that it is right above the theater and pretty noisy during movies.

    So I know that they "can" not assign cabins until you arrive at the port, how often does that happen?

    I've always wanted to go on a Disney Cruise, but found it always too expensive for solo. Now I have found an affordable cruise on the Magic but it is IGT. As I have never cruised before I don't know yet if I have a preference for a deck or certain cabin.

    Good decision?

    The only other catch with IGT is that it's non refundable/non changeable. With not being able to select a room yourself, those two things are the only differences?.

    Yep, you've got it. We go on our 2nd *GT sailing in less than 2 weeks. If you can snag one with dates that work, they can be a great deal over the prevailing rate. We have 2 rooms, and saved a total of $4k.

    #1 what category GTY cabin did you book? IGT
    #2. What category and room # did you get? 11A 9087
    #3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 6
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? It's a great location. It is a 4 night cruise and we wanted to try an inside for the virtual porthole. Love the location! I don't feel it was a 'leftover'. Was hoping for a split bathroom, but again, we don't care much for this cruise. Price was good, only 4 nights! Don't plan on being in there much!
    #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. Tuesday
    8. What time of day was your cabin assigned? About 11am EST is my best guess. I woke up at 8am (PST) and it was there!
    9. What month is your cruise? December

    Other question, how do you find out about your room assignment? Do you get an e-mail or do you just see it in your online reservation?
