Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 10 Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 10/30/20   

Notes: Secret Porthole Room - quiet, slightly-obstructed porthole but nice view nonetheless. Roomy enough for 3 adults, 1 child. Good location but had to walk on left side and across ship to get to room since Kids' Clubs blocked right side of ship.

Ship: Disney Dream Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 8A Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 07/15/14   

Notes: This is a real nice room for 2 or 3. The living room is somewhat divided from the bedroom with a partial wall between them.(full height, not full width) Not a split bathroom, the shower was tall enough for me 6'3". There is a couch that makes into a twin size bed. Also there is a 6 foot countertop in Living area with desk area and drawers. Lots of storage for clothing and luggage goes under bed with no problem. Two large portholes. This is near the very front of the ship and the hallways were quiet. We also had cabin 5522, I had to choose between the 2, I would choose 5522 it is slightly larger.

Deck: 5 Category: 10A Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 05/19/14   

Notes: The room itself was fine. Everything was in good condition. We upgraded to the SPH room a month before the cruise, and found the location to be noisy. There was a lot of foot traffic, and a crew door across from our room that was used frequently. We were also kept awake late at night from rehearsals going on after midnight in the Walt Disney Theatre. This was on a transatlantic cruise so it may not be the norm. I would not book this room again. I would rather pay less for a non obscured view on deck 1 or 2, or slightly more for a non-obscured view in a 9A. We did not miss a verandah, but liked being able to see out the window.

Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 4
Deck: 5 Category: 10B Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 08/24/13   

Notes: This is a great room (secret porthole). Pretty quiet and very comfortable. It was just myself and wife in there, but plenty of room. The only niggle was the door to the toilet stuck ever so slightly, so you had to slam it (or lift it up when closing). Otherwise no problems, would definitely stay here again. It's a great location for Adults

  Sail Date: 11/13/11   

Notes: SPH stateroom - Classified as an Inside stateroom, but has a porthole that is slightly obstructed. Sleeps 4. Only issue we had with the room is that the drawers were hard to open and closes. They need some TLC to get them to open or close easily. Otherwise the room was great location and nice quiet hallway.

Ship: Disney Dream Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 8 Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 06/21/11   

Notes: Loved this room. Set up as two rooms with a dividing wall between bed room and living room. The bathroom is not split however. There are two large portholes that double as window seats. We love this room so much we booked the same room on the Fantasy for 2012. We never had a issue with noise. Felt no motion beyond the normal at sea feelings.

Ship: Disney Wonder Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 10 Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 03/13/11   

Notes: Great location. We thought forward might be a bad choice - but not at all. It was very easy to get to all the forward locations and easy to go up or down on the forward stairs. The only slight oddity that turned out to be a positive was that the Lab prevents direct access from the right side of the ship - you have to walk from the left side - but it was very quick walk from the Lab - so if you have kids - we highly reccommend it. It is a Secret Porthole room - but with very little obstruction. Great view for the reduced cabin rate of an inside.

  Sail Date: 02/05/11   

Notes: This is a secret porthole room. The view was not obstructed much at all. Very clean and plenty of room for 2 of us. Lots of closet space but no steamer trunk. I would love to get this room again! You pay the inside price for a porthole room.

  Sail Date: 10/24/09   

Notes: The room itself was great! Relatively quiet, the obstruction didn't bother us at all. Although I thought I would miss the steamer trunk, we still had plenty of room for all of our stuff and it was great to have that extra room for our toddler! This was our first time, however, staying forward and we didn't like it at all. We frequented the 24-hour drink station, Pluto's and Topsiders and the VERY long walk got very old by day 3 or 4. I will never stay forward again. It was very handy for shows and adult pool though!

Ship: Disney Wonder Stateroom: 5520 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 10 Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 07/20/08   

Notes: We did back-to-backs in this room and loved it. Very convenient and in good shape. As previously reported, there is sometimes a light on outside at night - but not always - we clipped the curtains shut. One day there was a worker out there checking the inflatable life rafts so keep the sheers drawn if you're changing while in port. My only complaint is that it does not have a steamer trunk! Otherwise, minimal obstructions and a GREAT bargain!

  Sail Date: 09/18/05   

Notes: We did like this SPR very much. It was nice to have a porthole that was virtually unobstructed. It was very convenient to be on the same floor as the kids clubs and just a quick walk down 1 floor to the shows. However, there is a bright light that shines outside the porthole at night. Luckily we brought some clothespins and clipped the curtains together so the light wouldn't shine through. Without a room darkening shade it still acted as a little bit of a nightlight though. But that was fine as it was the kids side and they like night lights. Also, on the last day there was a crew member working on something outside so be sure to close the curtains when changing!
