I've looked at the thread about GTY assignments. They seem to come out around 50 days out, if what I saw is a fair representation. I'm hoping, anyway! to all!

We had a GTY on the cruise we are going on in 15 days and I think we got ours 49 days out. So around 50.

Only 17 days until day 50!!!

Yes it is. We booked an 11C GTY so paid for an 11C with no room number, just a guarantee we will get that category or higher. IGT just guarantees an inside room.

This example would work better if I hadn't booked the lowest category on the ship! But IGT also has more restrictions like not being able to change the name of passengers etc... The GTY is just a normal booking with no room number,

While we are on the subject of reservations, in my castaway club account list of reservations it shows Panama Canal twice with the same reservation number. Is this normal or some weird DCL glitch? And no, we didn't pay twice!!!

Ours is that way, too, and so is my parents'. I have to login to Castaway Club twice to see my reservation, too.

In regards to upgrading, I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for all to get what they want. It's my fear that DCL will start their incentives again, thus taking up the verandahs that are available right now. I hope they PD the IGTs first, then offer those rooms to newbies.
Thanks Karen - that would be terrific - if the girls can get together to do homework it won't be as painful

The married couple in the room got the queen bed and since DH(who was DBF at the time) didn't come, as the single lady, I got the top bunk and our single male friend got the lower bunk.

I am 6' and my friend is 6'3" and the couple both are pretty short. Love how the tall people got the short beds!
Already told DD she has to take the bunk, not the sofa bed - I need a place to sit in the mornings while everyone else is sleeping!

DH was wondering if during the longer cruises if they stop at any place to restock or if all food is loaded on the first day. I did not pay attention to this during the Med cruise. Does anyone know?

DH has a theory that Disney wants this cruise to remain some what empty because carrying and storing enough food for 14 days for a half full ship is easier than doing so for a full one. He also has a theory that Disney wants some rooms empty so that they can repair rooms that need it.

His thought is that Disney has to move the ship anyway so any passengers on board while they do it is an added bonus.

These reasons could explain why they aren't pushing to hard to sell it to the general public.

His lastest theory is that Disney won't place anyone on floors 1 &2 and repair those rooms and everyone will have a higher deck room and maybe a view.

Who knows..I guess we will have to wait and see what happens when the room assignments come out! Does anyone know when that maybe?
I like your DH's thinking

There's a thread in the main forum that covers IGT/OGT/VGT assignments. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2919036

From what I read so far, it seems like 13 days prior to cruise is IGT/OGT/VGT rooms are assigned. Patience...

Crazy day today! I uninstalled something relatively innocuous on my computer (nothing complicated) and the computer no longer recognized the mouse. Also had something else pop up that was weird..still have to figure that one out. I am NOT a computer whiz but can usually muddle my way through (I'm great at problem-solving), but nothing would fix this, so I had to install a new mouse . Bizarre.

Thanks Jess for the new avatar!!! Love it! You know Chip and Dale are my favorite characters.

All this talk about upgrades has me thinking. We've had inside and verandah, both on 14-day cruises, and we were satisfied with both. I love, love, love a verandah, but the $ savings with the IGT are lovely, too. Hmmm. What to do, what to do.....we'll just have to wait and see what our assignments turn out to be.

I had an interesting conversation with a waiter today, who is originally from Mexico City and still has many family members there. He said half his cousins are in the Mafia and half in the Army ("same thing", according to him ). He told us stories of kidnappings, murders, etc. and gave us advice on what NOT to do in Mexico in general, but when he heard we are going to Cabo, PV and CM, he reassured us they are perfectly safe. I had no doubts, but it was nice to hear his pov. He equated it to NYC, where hanging out in parts of the Bronx (where he also lived for many years) is not a good idea, but Manhattan is safe. Just food for thought for anyone who may not want to leave the ship .

We have an IGTY. I just called DCL and we will get notified up to 14 days before sailing. We won't be home but can either call them or check online.
