Good morning folks .... I am about to spread a little bit of good news ... this morning I had this email from my TA:

Hello!

I have seen many reports on when we might hear what Disney Cruise Line is planning for the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic for 2013 (and the end of 2012 for the Wonder). I have some preliminary information for you. I do have additional information but I am working hard to verify the information received before I send it to you.

Here is what we are predicting. We anticipate that we will get an announcement early to midweek next week with reservations opening by the end of the week to gold and platinum members. We expect silver member and new cruiser reservations to begin shortly after that.

We expect that there will be a Panama Canal cruise on December 9, 2012 going up the Western Caribbean rather than the Eastern side as they have done before. This cruise is likely going to end in Miami. After this sailing, we expect either alternating 7 night Caribbean sailings or shorter sailings of 4 and 5 nights going to the Western Caribbean and the Bahamas. We believe the Wonder will then go back through the Panama Canal to Los Angeles, then continue up to Vancouver for Alaskan cruises. We are not sure if the ship will home port in Vancouver or Seattle however. We also believe we will see a Hawaiian sailing either from Vancouver or Los Angeles after the Alaska sailings and another trip through the Panama Canal after that.

For the Disney Magic, we expect a repeat of the Galveston schedule for the first part of the year, followed by a Transatlantic sailing from Galveston on or about May 18, 2013. We expect to see a variety of itineraries in the Mediterranean with a home port of Barcelona or Civitavecchia (or both!). Expect to see similar sailings to what we have seen before plus a few longer 12 night sailings to include Eastern Mediterranean ports such as Venice, Turkey, Croatia, the Greek Isles. Based on the port schedules we have seen, we expect these longer sailings will take place in July. We also expect a Transatlantic back on or about October 12, 2013.

I am SO EXCITED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm wondering if the TA part will be released for everyone at the same time as it's not a new itinerary? (wishful thinking on my part....)

Still - I'm excited that it's really going to happen! (or 99.9% for sure right now)

I have still 2 more to do before we hit gold ... thats the problem with taking only longer cruises Hopefully the ship won't get booked up before the silvers get a look in

Grrrrr! We get what seems to be thisclose to the release of information, and it is looking like it won't be happening for our family. Ah well, such is life! At least it is before we booked it and tied up additional $$!

I'm still anxiously awaiting information as I am excited for everyone here!

Thank you! Thank you for posting this information!

I will be calling our TA a bit later today as we are changing the date of another cruise we have booked, and I want to be sure she has all our information regarding dining, etc. for the WBTA. We will be headed to The World and want to be confident that she can reach us by phone if necessary.

We'll be looking to link the cruise with something else. Perhaps ABD or a Med cruise.

I love it that there is so much activity here from you all while I'm sleeping here at home.

Hi Sarah hoping they release this early in the week so we can all start to plan.

Back to the intros we are Michael and Tricia, we will be enjoying our 39th year of marriage in 2013 so we will use this cruise as our celebation.
Tricia is a SAHGM and looks after our 3 DGDs 3 days a week before they go to school so that keeps her young, I am a chargehand rigger in an offshore construction yard. We have been DVC members since 07 so we are big Disney fans. Took our first trip in 1990 and were bitten by the mouse.

We have a West Highland Terrier called Freddie that keeps us amused and at the vets as he has all sorts of allergies (we are taking him later today) but we love him anyway and wouldnt swop him..
We did the 2010 WB so we do remember a lot of names from that trip but we didnt get to talk to many so we will try harder this time.
As we said earlier we are more readers than posters but we enjoy reading about all your plans and stories.

Mary and Stevie....look forward to meeting you on the next cruise and having a chat about service life.

I came out of the RAF quite a few years ago now after serving in the Safety Equipment Section and retrained as an electrican for 'civvy life'.

Our last posting was RAF Chivenor in North Devon and we settled there for many years and 16 months ago took early retirement and moved up North.

Travelling is in our blood and we love sightseeing and meeting people. Hve been a regular WDW visitor since 1989 and joined DVC in the 2004.

From Sarah's posting on Facebook this morning it looks like the WBTA is 'a go' and it won't be long before we are organising things.

We had a dummy cruise on the Fantasy we were going to move but friends have persuaded us to join them on the Fantasy in January so we will have to book the WBTA whilst on the Wonder in September 2012 during our Pacific Cruise.

Have put a photo of the both of us so people have more of a chance to recognise us. It's always nice to be able to put a face to the name...

Babydiver is Richard with DW Sue Powell who is on Facebook.

THANK YOU for the posting - I am already plotting and planning!

So a WB Panama Canal, probably late Spring 2013 on the WONDER. Then onto MAGIC for the EBTA, then June in Scotland, chartering a boat on the Caledonian Canal, then flying home. Use the other half of the RT ticket to fly back to Europe, and join the MAGIC for the WBTA.

off to make plans for raiding the IRA . . . . . . . .
