Thanks! I forgot about the 10% since I've never done an obb. Makes sense that would be lost with ksf.

No. No DCL OBC is preserved as KSF requires a complete new booking. The OBC is tied to the reservation number and when you book KSF, a new one is issued.

Basically, you cannot combine offers that include a booking code. OBB does in fact use a booking code. Similarly, KSF, MIL, Disney Visa Rewards, all use a booking code.

The only offers that can be combined are *GT rates with Disney Visa Rewards OBC. The *GT rates do not require a booking code and hence one (such as the visa one) can be applied, but DCL needs to do it. (it worked for me last August). Or the infrequent 'online booking OBC'. That one can be combined with the Disney Visa OBC.

This is why I said there's no way to know for sure, because yes, that's the rule, but as with all things DCL, there are numerous reports of CMs making exceptions and allowing OBC to follow an OBB that gets turned into a KSF. I don't agree with them doing it, but it's not up to me. Since I don't work for them I don't know how they make it work in the system, but clearly it can be done.

So the way to get the best rate from. dummy cruise is to rebook the desired cruise/date the day it comes out?

my DH and I just cruised the Fantasy and did a dummy booking, it is completely normal. Ours is for Dec 3, 2014 Magic 10A. For 2 adults and one child age 14 is 1324.80 and so 10% down was only $133. We just said we don't know when we want to go and this is what they gave us, the furthest out booking you could get then.

My question is: could we have booked 2 separate reservations, or is it only two cabins on the same sailing?

This made me think of something. Maybe I should book a dummy 7 day cruise just so I'm locked in on that greater OBC. That way if they ever change it and make it lower or even change the requirements for an OBC maybe I'd already be grandfathered in???

Seems like I remember someone being mad at something they lost when rules were changed and they weren't informed or grandfathered in. I'll have to think about that and crunch some numbers.

If you put one adult in each room, the cost is the same as if you put two adults in each room as you are paying the 100% single supplement. If you are trying to cut down the amount of the deposit, this would be counterproductive. Not to mention that if the price goes up before the time you add the kids, you'll be paying the higher price to add the kids.

You may book up to two staterooms on one future cruise, per household, and get onboard booking benefits. You can't book two separate future cruises while on your next cruise and get benefits on both.
