Count me as another one who would love to Disney explore 3 and 4 night cruises out of LA (and not just because I would love to see the Wonder in my harbor every week). It seems as if Disney has truly created a wonderful vacation opportunity by combining a short cruise with DW stay. DL deserves the same opportunity, especially with all the work being done at DCA. I think there are plenty of people, both in the US and in Asia, New Zealand and Australia, who would love the chance to combine a DL trip with a short Disney cruise.

Yes, that and/or Panama Canal crossing in summer too. All of these awesome and "different" cruises are smack in the middle of the school year. Unless you have preschoolers or homeschool, it's really hard to miss 2 weeks of school.

I am trying to be patient because other lines have not released summer 2013 itineraries. Not working so well but I am trying

I have resigned myself to spring 2012 so I will not have expectations. The anticipation is nerve racking

I don't think Hawaii will ever happen in the Summer, sadly, since Alaska is waaaay too lucrative to pull a ship out. All West Coast ships go up to AK for the summer months (except the Carnival Splendor).

I think what we are going to do is book plan B now just so we get Fantasy's opening prices (the cruise we would book hadn't had any increases yet). I'm afraid by the time DCL announces the 2013 classic ship itineraries, they will either hold no interest for us or be more than we are willing to pay. And by that time, Fantasy prices will have moved to a higher tiered pricing. I just don't have a good feeling about this, so I'm hedging my bets by booking the Fantasy "just in case."

Anyone else feeling this??

Alexandnessa,

Yes, I am the same way. When I saw 2013 summer prices I thought I might have to just give up on another disney cruise, but I had a booking I needed to transfer, so I "settled" on a spring break March Eastern which was MUCH less expensive. Well, I have started researching the Eastern (did a Western on our first and only previous cruise) and am getting very excited even though it is over a year away. I am waiting to see if there are some more interesting and/or better summer prices sailing out of Galveston 2013, but really, I don't think that they are going to beat the Eastern on a new ship. So, really, with Disney, unless I am doing a 3 day (which for me would just be too short) any cruise is not really settling. Canceling and refunding my deposit would be settling, for me. Just hope I am not wrong about our spring break 2013 school calender (won't be released until Dec or Jan) but the week I chose is only 1 day off of the 2012 spring break so I am betting it will fall that same week in 2013. So I am anxious but hoping for the best!

I moved my dummy date to the Fantasy on day 1 for this reason. I figure I'll move it if needed when the Wonder/Magic dates are released.

My TA seems to think DCL will keep the Alaska & Mexico itineraries (especially the Alaska ones as they've been so successful for Disney). I have no interest in either. Now an 8 day out of NYC to Bermuda...

Great minds think alike!

As much as I love Bermuda, I just don't know if DCL could do it. Celebrity, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean ... they all go and park there for a few days. I am wondering if King's Wharf has any room? The Magic is too big to dock at Hamilton. Don't get me wrong .. I would love it, just thinking of the logistics.

Wondering too if DCL can really afford to keep up sailing the MR. Cruises are cheaper to begin with, and they are having trouble filling the ships.

Wherever they go, just hurry up and announce it already .. geesh! Don't they know we're all (not so patiently) waiting?!

Already did.....
The prices are far less than what i was expecting on the Fantasy. And Dh wants to be on one of the big Disney ships before we stop the Disney cruises so we booked an October cruise on the Fantasy celebrating DD 17 bday
