The DCL website said the end of March 2012. When we called DCL yesterday, they referred us to ABD. ABD said information would be released by the end of April 2012. Who knows? But we're definately interested to know. We're booked on the 7/13/13 Med Cruise that includes Greece.

We were wondering about the ABD add-ons to the cruises as well (for 2013), including the Barcelona-Madrid side trip. The cruise folks refer us to ABD, and ABD tells us the announcements will be soon--couple that with an ABD rep telling us that the rest of the ABD season would be announced soon after May 20 or 21....so will it all be one big announcement in late May? Or will the rest of the cruise itinerary (for the Magic and Wonder, for late 2013) be announced in late April--with ABD add-ons---and the rest of the ABD season in May? (With Greece added, and many trips tweaked, and now Vietnam...hard to believe there will be any more new trips announced, but who knows?)

we couldn't find anything either--so called the Disney cruise folks (ABD was closed for the day). They just got the info today--the rep read it to us. No details on what excursions they will do in each port--but they had pre-trip packages (4 nights in Madrid, for example--or three nights in Barcelona). For the 7 night western med the price was $2299 pp for the ABD add-on. So weigh that with a typical total excursion cost--and then the other add-on benefits--to see if it is worth it. I know SayHello did this a couple of years ago and highly recommends it...

Anyone finding details about the day to day excusions please post!!

For those who haven't seen yet, the DCL/ABD add-ons are now on the ABD site at www.adventuresbydisney.com with full day-by-day itineraries.

Just look under the regular destinations menus for Europe.

Yup! Have been looking at it the past few hours.

Anyway, I called DCL and the Madrid add-on can be added to any of the Med cruises. It even says so on their website. This is so tempting!!! I'll talk it over hubby later and book it maybe tonight since it'll be just a group of 40, as usual.

Well, that's interesting. I thought Tozzie was told the Madrid add-on was only for the shorter cruises. Conflicting information already!

OK, the funny thing is, what the ABD site says is this:

Quote:
This vacation may only be purchased in conjunction with Disney Cruise Line 7-, 10- and 11-Night Mediterranean Cruises.
But I don't think there are any 10- or 11- night Med cruises in 2013. They're either 4-, 7- or 12- Night. Looks like someone did a bad job of cut-and-paste from 2010 or 2011.

Yes, and I made it clear to the rep that we are booked for the 12-night. She kept asking me why I wouldn't do the one with the cruise itself and told her I was interested in the Madrid one and she went through the whole highlights and what is included in the price. It makes sense since it's a pre-cruise tour, unless there are conflicting or overlapping dates, which I doubt since only one ship is doing the Med cruise.....unless they are doing just one tour for all the Med cruises? They don't have the dates on the website....hmmm... let me look into that.
