We're booked in a 5A for April 12th, no OBB, transfers or ins for 2A/1C, $5377. $2114 each adult, $903 for the 9 yr old.

Its a lot of money, but spring break always is. I was hoping for under $5K but this is close. We've never been able to go spring break week because its usually either sold out or $8K. So I am mildly happy...especially since I have a year and a half to pay it off.

I also asked her to look into June 28th, which is the week we went this year, and it was over $6700 for a 5A. We did a VGT about 65 days out and paid $4200 for the same category. Maybe I'll go cruise with Shrek on the Allure that week instead. We'll see when they release the rest of the year's prices on RCCL.

WOW. Just priced out Fantasy for March 8th, 2014. Same week we have booked for 2013 (spring break), same Cat. 6A. Cruise is $1000 higher than what we booked for 2013. 5k for 2A2C. That is a 25% price increase. I know my salary hasn't gone up 25%.

Problem is having now done a longer cruise, the 3/4 night runs to Nassau (yuck!!) just aren't appealing.

....It was definitely a lot cheaper than summer so I'm trying to remain optimistic about the price in general!

I guess that is what makes the 4/12/14 price tollerable. It is so much less than the July dates that we would need to book so DS doesn't miss school. Hoping we will be able to go, but not counting on it. I did book the bigger room just in case because these kids sure aren't getting any smaller.

If you don't mind going on a Western and could go a week earlier, the 3/1 cruise is cheaper. We were going to hold both (we could go either side of that weekend of 3/8), but it was several hundred more for the 3/8, so we're just going to go with 3/1.

You got that right I hope you guys can go, too! I'm worried about the school calendar not being out and this week being different than past year's patterns. I'm tempted to book on board in a few days - woohoo - to lock in the other week, just in case...If the price is the same as today, I just might.

No, it's not supply & demand. It's because everyone has a different spring break week. We get no days off around Easter in my county in FL. Spring break for us is early March. In Ohio growing up, it was always Easter week. That's why WDW is busy from March thru whenever Easter is - variant breaks.

We haven't received detailed pricing yet, but our TA has a hold for us for Jan. 11 Eastern. She's swamped, I'm sure, and will get us details soon. We're in category 5E (woohoo!), and online pricing looked as follows: 2A ($1379/ea), 2C, 11&8 ($749, I believe, ea). Total around $4500 with taxes, no ins., no discounts. My parents are in a connecting room. Can't wait!! These prices were in line with what they were for this coming January several months back. We're happy, as it was right in budget and within our expectations.
