Booked it!

Thanks for posting this thread - Val & I went ahead and booked it. We were booked on the two cruises immediately following this one (West Coast Repo and first Alaska cruise) but decided that the price for this cruise was too good to pass up so we switched. Its going to save us ~$3K and its something we've wanted to do for a while.

Now that this deal is out, I'm seriously thinking...we live in Orlando. We could drive to Miami, cruise, and fly back all for $5000 for 2a, 2c in an IGT. How can I say no??? Where can I find $5000 before May? We need to get on this, people!
There are FLR rates that are even LESS!

I'm looking for someone to go with, someone to watch my kids...

OMG! We are always so indecisive BUT we jumped on this and BOOKED IT! It's only $400 more than the VGT rate that we recently paid for a 7 day Fantasy next month.

Yes! The FLR rate for a 5B is $980 for an adult! For 14 nights!!!! 2A 1C in a 5B for 14 nights incl taxes & fees is $3,350. Holy cow!!!! My 7-night cruises to the Caribbean hover around that price. OMG!!!

We actually backed out of this cruise months ago and rebooked another. So wish we had just kept putting money aside for it HOPING that this might happen. Oh well.... life is still good and we're doing something else, but we will miss our friends who are cruising this itinerary.

Glad there are those who will be able to take advantage of these great rates!

They are also offering Military rates as well that are the same as the FL Residents. I sailed the Wonder into Miami from CA a few weeks ago and if you can, GO. An incredible trip!!!

Oh my!!!!! Thank you so much for telling me. We could book a verandah on the fl rate for the same as the IGT. My husband is *this* close to saying yes. That's very unlike him.

Ha, I just saw this thread, and saw your original response. Noted your ticker had the PC cruise and figured you had jumped on it. Have a great time. We just got off the EBPC and it was awesome.

The Military rates weren't listed for this cruise, I will have to check with the code, although it won't be happening anyway. My father is more interested in the TA, and already told me he had plans in May. Fun to look though.

This is sooo awesome! And when I wish we could all fit into one room! Too bad. Sounds like too great of a deal to pass up. Congratulations to all of you that can snag it!

Wow what a great rate for 14 nights of DCL!
Just for fun I looked now and only found IGT rates available but for less than 2400$ for two people - including taxes! I am not sailing this year but if something like this peeps up in 2014, I am SO THERE! Has anyone else found VGT or OGT rates still available? You guys in FL are so lucky you can get your special rates, too!

I would love to do this but May is just a no go. Had to cancel our Panama cruise in December and I would love to book another!

I've never figured out why the schedule overlaps the PC and TA cruises. I do realize that different ports are involved, but there is a group who likes to do long cruises. Disney is well aware of them. One high ranking CM commented to me that there aren't that many families who have done more than 20 or 25 cruises, but THEY ALL TAKE THE SAME CRUISES. It would be incredible to do 2 weeks on the Wonder followed by 2 weeks on the Magic (or the other way around). And they can't fill either ship.

Poor scheduling. Oh well......
