Well, some early 2015 dates may be released at some point at the end of this year and later 2015 dates could be released early 2014. Last year the Wonder's dates October through the end of 2014 weren't released until this past July.

You should be able to request specific rooms. We booked GTY Cat. 5 and when our rooms were assigned our agent was able to switch them to connecting rooms. We had 6544 and 6546. If you book early, you should definitely be able to pick your exact rooms. Bring door stops to keep the doors open if you want, those doors are heavy! And I think 3 and 5 are fine especially if you like to do things as a family. There were plenty of small kids on our trip (including our 4 year old) and they all seemed to be having a great time. Every day our little one would exclaim "this is the BEST day of my life!"

We are thinking about 2015 for our 25th. We will be bringing our then 13 year old.

I have a dummy cruise that I have to rebook soon, so I have to find a cruise in 2014 that we might go on insted.

There is so much to do on Disney that I would not worry about your little one being bored. Plus I am sure grandma would like to spend some time with them.

thanks again everyone for all the great great info! my parents go with us each october trip. we actually leave for food and wine next saturday. i think they would really love the cruise. i think my dad would really like the food aspect and my mom i think would just like being on a cruise. they both have never been.

are the kids levels like they used to be? meaning my son would be three, so he would be in the one age group and my daughter is 5 so she would be in the other?

thanks again!

I sailed to Alaska with my 6 & 3 DSs and my 3 & 2 year old nephews in 2011. All 4 boys still talk about the Alaska cruise as their favorite vacation. Every time they see a whale on TV the boys talk about whale watching in Juneau and the bears at the zoo they talk about the grizzly bear we saw in Skagway on the train. I think they got a lot out of it. The 3 excursions we did was the train and gold panning in Skagway; whale watching in Juneau; and totem poles and lumberjacks in Ketchikan all DCL excursions and it remains our favorite cruise of 4.

thanks a lot for the info! I think even though they are young they will have a blast. Even with our Wdw trips they have been having a ball grant it Kate is on her 5th so far and this past June trip is the first she remembers but she still had fun on the first three. Kason was 10 mths his first and had fun for what it was worth. I think it's what u make of it. If we have to leave then in the club for an excursion or 2 so be it. They will be together so I think they would be fine. I know Kate will be at this point. Thanks for the info about the day trips off the boat!
