If a certain date doesn't come up on DCL website, is it sold out?

Does anyone know if say, the 3 night on August 20th isn't showing on the site, does that mean its sold out?

Hey OP, if you have kids, it may be that they have the max # of kids already or if it's more than three people, maybe no more cabins for your party size. Just thought about that.

Really, on the DCL website?? Theyre not even giving me that date as an option. We are 2 A and 4 C, so I always start with 1 A and 2 kids, and nothing?

So, I called, and was told they only had cat 7's left and suites...4700 for the 6 of us...seems like way too much, anyone know where else I can check, like do other travel companies purchase lower cat staterooms, where I could buy from? Of course, now that my air may be cheaper to go ealier and fit in a 3 day, there are no more low categories...

Calling DCL is the place where they know if available or not, any other TA, etc will be exactly the same, my search showed higher cats available only

After speaking with several different lines, and also TAs, I may be able to shed some light on rooms.
Each TA, is "given or assigned" a certain number of cabins. Once they run out, tha particular TA is done. I dont think they can get more, though I could be wrong.
I would do as suggested above, and call DCL and see as they generally have the most rooms and also the best shot at figuring something out.
Another option, would be to do a websearch for Disney Cruise, and check different online TAs, and see if something comes up.

Generally speaking, it could be a computer glitch that wont show the date you are looking for to come up.Ive seen dates disappear and reappear on a day to day basis. Especially during the week if Disneys IT is working on the site.

Another thought. What kinds of ammenities for lack of a better term are you looking for with your room? If you adding trip ins and transfers, you could be spending more than you need. For your size party alone, your looking at almost 300 in transfers alone. A rental car or private transport may be cheaper.
