Pricing From:
Inside $999 per person
Oceanview $1,149 per person

I would expect Disney to be twice that ???? at least 1.5x???
I'd say 3x...if not more. I can't imagine the balconies below 3kpp.

Price of a WBTA can someone give me a rough estimate of a WBTA in a 9c or a 7a for 2. Just want to make sure I am in the ballpark of prices. Years past will be great or even this year. Thanks

Please note though that Costco's phones don't open until 10am Eastern, whereas DCL releases rates at 8:00 (I think, or is it 9:00??).

I will be in this situation on opening day as Gold. I have a reservation I transferred to Costco and one of the few negatives (there aren't many I promise) is they don't open until 10am EST. I will call DCL at 8am EST when they open to price out Alaska, Med and perhaps a summer Eastern Fantasy for 2015 and then decide what we are going to do. As long as the prices are reasonable (LOL ) I will go ahead and book with DCL with the understanding that I will then have to re-shop when I'm on the Fantasy next month (as long as not a black out date) so I can get my 10% and $200 OBC. Then I'll have an idea what to do when Costco opens and call them at 10am EST and move the one I have with as well as a back up for my DS and end of school and weather days or just leave as a "dummy" for now.

I'm trying to keep this all straight - ha ha!

I agree with you! I sincerely hope they aren't too outrageous (or not as outrageous as we anticipate) so those of you can book it as so many of you are excited!

I know - its wacky! I'll do the same - call DCL at 8:00 to get prices and decide what we're doing. Then I'll call Costco at 10:00 so they can move my dummy booking. I really hope there aren't too many black out dates. Unfortunately, the week that probably works the best for us is over July 4th, and we pretty much know that will be blacked out. Anxiously waiting!

I agree as well. We went to the Baltics & St Petersburg on RCI in 2010, the same season as the Magic. The DCL price was 3x the RCI price (2A, OV cabin).

I am prepared to pay about 15k for the Baltics and maybe 10k for the Iceland cruise for 3 people with a Verandah. 12 night July 10th and June 29th Repo..

I really hope it doesn't get to 20k because I would like to book Hawaii for me and all three kids. I think that will be expensive as well. So between the three, those will be all the vacations I hope to be taking in 2015.

A friend of mine just guessed 8k per person for the Baltic and 6k per person for the Repo Iceland…

I hope that is wrong

Yikes. The price of these European cruises makes my head spin. We're hoping to be able to afford the local zoo next month--I couldn't even imagine throwing down that much cash on vacation, even for Disney!

Do you really think they will change as much as what you guys are saying a year before. I mean what they going to charge a month before as it normally just goes higher. I was hoping to book on day one and get not to bad a price

Not only that but I hear you can't use the 10 percent discount for booking on board for this route

Disney really don't make it easy for people

Am shocked these cruises even full up at this price as that's crazy

So, just to get this straight... You can book at DCL and then move the reservation to Costco? Do you get all the same benefits as if you booked directly through Costco? (Particularly the Costco gift card, which is a substantial chunk of change).

Also, is there a time limit to move the reservation to Costco?
