Which cruise? We are thinking of October 5 since that is likely to accommodate our annual RIP tour for HHN at UNIVERSAL. I looked at what 2012 October prices are for our category, and at the moment the 2013 dates are 1000$ cheaper. Im sure the 2012 dates didn't start there so I need to know if this is plan B that I've at least gotten in on tier one pricing for 2013.

Which begs the conundrum.....does Disney attract neurotics or does Disney make otherwise sane people neurotic?!

Should I book a 2013 cruise now or wait.

Should I book the Fantasy for October 2013 now or wait until we are on the dream Oct 2012? What would be cheaper?

I would book it now. You can always cancel it if it ends up being cheaper to book while you're on the boat (right?)

Thanks I am going to go ahead and book. We just got back from the Dream I booked the Dream for 2012, buts its still about 500.00 more than I paid this year even with discount. I should have booked 2 cruises, but 2013 was not out yet, and I wasn't really familar with the dummy cruises. I have learned a lot from this boards. I paid 2700 cat 4a this year. Oct 28 next year is 3700 for same room. I had to downgrade to 5D, and I am still paying a couple hundred more. I am thinking about using my 10% discount reservation for the fantasy in 2013 and then just paying the full price for the Dream in 2012. The cost of the Fantasy would 4557 for cat 4a oct 2013. I think that would be a pretty good deal.

Thanks, I just got done switching the 2012 Dream to the 2012 Fantasy. It was only 500.00 more to go in 2012 vs 2013. I think I have set some kind of record for switching reservations around. I figure after the Fantasy starts sailing the prices are going to really increase like the Dream did.

Still waiting to see what the other sips are doing for 2013 I went to book the Easter Fantasy cruise a few hrs after they released them and all that was left was cat8 and higher which is more than we wanted to pay so I booked the wk before christmas instead.
Hoping that some lower cat. will open back up for that sailing when the other ships open up for booking. if not we will just book another cruise line for Easter and wait till Dec and sail on the Fantasy

Any more speculation about what might be offered out of LA? Why is it that they can't do a 2 week Hawaii trip during the summer?

I believe they are still planning to sail Alaska Summer 2013. They seem to have no problems filling the Wonder in that time frame.
