The 14th is a Sunday. Have they ever released on the weekend? I would think that would be a problem for TA's. I know they work weekends but isn't weekday start the norm?

Are we thinking we will get all of 2014 or just half? Any rumors if all 4 ships will be released or just Dream/Fantasy

We just disembarked the Wonder yesterday and the Future Cruise Desk team said they have no idea when they'll have 2014

I think the general consensus is just Dream class will be released.

they didn't release all of 2013 at once. I think it would overwhelm the systems to have all four ships booking at once. I think they're going to break it up and do two ships at a time, or maybe just do half a year first and the latter half next year

Well, just got an email from my TA saying to "get ready" and asking for my preferences. I gave her our itinerary choices in order of preference, date ideas and room category. So maybe this week

We recieved a similar, though more subtle, email a few days ago from our DU TA with some questions about any ghost bookings we may have and desired dates or itineraries. Looks like the pros are getting their ducks lined up.

Although my two upcoming Disney cruises are booked with two different travel agencies, I haven't received e-mails about booking a 2014 cruise from either of them! At a meet with Deb Wills at Epcot last week, she said she may sponsor a group cruise in 2014. If so, I'd like to be on that one.

Would be really nice to have a release date, so I can make sure I'm home on my computer and not running all over the place . . .

Can't you sweet talk your TA into giving you a date???

She actually has no idea -- just prepping. Disney is so undependable anymore with rhyme nor reason as to how they release the dates. One time she said they weren't even notified until the same day it went public that morning!

I called DCL also and, as always, they have no idea (and I believe they don't). When I mentioned to him how frustrating it is the way Disney does this, his response was "oh believe me, I know. We hear that all the time -- and people are now telling us so many other cruise lines have their 2014 itineraries out already and why don't we". He, too, sounded frustrated!

What I cannot for the life of me understand is that after 12+ years of this nonsensical way they do release dates and pricing, they haven't come into the 21st Century with a better system. They could at least release the itineraries one week before they start accepting reservations so that a person has time to plan it, discuss it with the family and decide on pricing and dates. For many, it is mind-boggling on day of when you have to make phone calls to the family while on hold with Disney trying to figure out what everyone wants -- especially because you have no idea what ports are going to be opening which might completely change your pre-planned cruise ideas.

Okay, sorry, I'm off my soapbox. I just find the Disney way of booking so antiquated!

Everyone finds out at the same time; even TA's and cast members. The only people who might know more are DCL execs, and they don't give any dates until they are 100% sure everything will be up and running. At this point, it is all speculation based on prior years. You will find out here on the DIS not a second later than everyone else knows.

If one.whenever these dates are released wants to change a ghost cruise date you need to call them right? It can't be done online?

If you have the reservation # and you haven't used a TA, you can go into the reservation and "modify" it.
