    I'm researching Disney cruise for 2017. I don't seem to be able to choose my own cabin & the website shows that I will be assigned one. Is this something new?

    Ahoy Deanna –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel – we are so happy to have you with us! Marcy and I love cruise planning, and I am pleased to assist you with your selections. At Disney Cruise Line online, guests can book a custom cruise package step-by-step. Start by entering the number of cruisers, ages, destination, and desired dates. The next prompt will give you an initial list of options, from which you can pick your preferred date and itinerary. 

    From there, stateroom options are listed: Inside Staterooms, Oceanview Staterooms, Verandah Staterooms and Concierge. After choosing a stateroom type, a list of prices will be shown and from there you can choose the part of the ship (Aft, Midship, Forward), deck, and stateroom number.

    Some staterooms will not have these options and these are the Guaranteed Staterooms (IGT, VGT) which for a discounted price guests are guaranteed to get a room in that category but will not be assigned a room number until a later time. Some guests may even get a magical upgrade at no additional cost with this room category. I have booked Guaranteed Staterooms in the past, and I saved a good amount of gold doubloons in my treasure chest. Deanna, I hope that your cruise planning is sailing along smoothly, but if you need more help please come back to visit with us again.
