Ship: Disney Dream Stateroom: 8042 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: 5B Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 02/16/14   

Notes: We loved the convenient location of this stateroom. Although being by the elevator has some drawbacks, the convenience makes up for any issues. Yes, there was a nearby picture on the wall from the Detective game but that really did not bother us at night at all since the game was mostly played by younger kids during the day. We loved just being able to head right up to the pool from our room. The forward elevators are much less busy than the mid-ship ones, a real plus when we needed to take them. Would book this room again in a heartbeat!!

Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 8042 Condition: 4
Deck: 8 Category: 4A Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 04/20/12   

Notes: Not quite "excellent" as it hasn't been updated in a while, but still in shipshape condition. Still has beverage cooler (heard they are all getting real fridges at some point). Blowdryer is "old hotel" variety. Docking station on alarm clock for iPod. Great views from verandah. Not too much rocking felt even when waves/wind were serious enough to cancel a port stop. Noise from above on Pirate Night was heard as was the daily disbursal of deck chairs in the early a.m. If you are a sound sleeper, you will not notice. Convenience to elevator/stairwell was great. Overall, a very good room location. Fit our family of 5 nicely (including a very tall tween). Cozy, of course, being all in one room, but we very much enjoyed being one floor down from food/pools during the a.m. Made it easy to choose the stairs over waiting in line for the elevator.

Ship: Disney Dream Stateroom: 8042 Condition: 4
Deck: 8 Category: 5B Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 03/13/11   

Notes: Very close to the forward elevator and can be noisy. There is also an animated picture that is part of the "Detective" game which draws a lot of excited (noisy) traffic. Bed is very comfortable. Sleeps four with a pull down bunk that we left down for the whole trip. Dual rest rooms are still genius. Altogether these are minor concerns based on location but when we reserved a cruise on the Fantasy for 2012, we avoided this room.

Ship: Disney Wonder Stateroom: 8042 Condition: 4
Deck: 8 Category: 4 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 11/26/06   

Notes: Great room location as it is only one deck away from the pools, food, etc. It was noisy at times with the people stomping around deck 9. Great view from the verandah.

Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 8042 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: 4 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 06/17/04   

Notes: A little bit of noise from chairs above. I thought location was very convenient. Plenty of room for 5 of us. I think I personally would prefer the other side for views of the Western ports, but it was still great.
