If you noticed there are no fall itineraries listed for either the Magic or the Wonder. Not exactly overly happy that I've been waiting all this time for an announcement and it's not complete????? Really DCL???

I know...its frustrating. But I do think it will still happen. Just it makes it hard for those who do need to plan...

Well, if what goes up must come down, then what goes East must come West! They can't possibly leave the Magic over there forever!

It seems to me that the rumors might be true - that the Magic will be going into an extensive dry dock in 2013. Then she can come out lookin' good for a WBTA in celebration of my birthday in October! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

In the meantime...watch and wait, watch and wait...

Why not? The carpets on the Dream have 4 ships on the map with 1 West Coast bar a star for Disneyland, 2 in the East near a star for WDW, and another on the Eastern Atlantic next to Europe and a star that perhaps is Disneyland Resort Paris. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzIVQAXJ0Q4

Cruising in the Med is becoming a year round activity. So perhaps dry dock or perhaps and extended stay with Winter cruises in the med

lol My sharp detective skills tell me there will be a lot of that going on

And once they announce the 2013 WBTA, I would like them to announce the EBTA 2014, so I will be able to use my return plane ticket to go from the US to UK and back again !!!

I think they should announce the schedule for the next five years!

Here is the response I just received in reference to the email I sent to Karl Holtz:

Holly,

We appreciate your enthusiasm for Disney Cruise Line and thank you for
your recent inquiry.

We are always evaluating new itineraries and will continue to do so into
the future. As such, we are still finalizing plans for our fall
sailings aboard the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder in 2013 and look
forward to sharing that information when the time is right.

Again, thank you for your inquiry.

Sincerely,

George
Guest Communications
Disney Cruise Line

Some Observations...

There are exactly five weeks between the end of the final 2013 published med cruise and the possible?? WBTA. If we assume the port schedules in Gibraltar and Madeira are correct, that five weeks would leave plenty of time for an extensive drydock (although I still don't see why the company would spend the extra money for a drydock in Europe when they could get it done cheaper here in the US). Early fall 2013 would also be just past 15 years service for the Magic which might make her due for extensive maintenance.

I also wonder if the WBTA might return to Galveston and be a direct opposite to the EBTA. The dates appear to work if we assume the Gibraltar date and Madeira date are correct. The Castaway Cay date would fall on Wednesday the 23rd and that works as the Dream is scheduled to be at sea that day.

A little off topic, but according to the newly revised 2012/2013 Itinerary Brochure, the 5/19 Dream cruise and the 5/18 EBTA appear to both have Castaway Cay days scheduled for Tuesday, May 21st. That certainly can't happen. Kind of surprised they didn't catch that and publish the Dream to be at sea that day and at Castaway Cay on Wednesday the 22nd.

Im planning on booking the eastbound tomorrow which I would only go on if there is no westbound in 2013. Does anyone else plan on doing this? I can always change bookings in a WBTA comes out right?

Well thought out, that was what I was thinking, I can't see DCL having all there ships in the same area. And we now know from FB that DCL have no intention of making an annoucement about the WBTA. for a couple of months, they still have a few things to work out. So we are still playing the waiting game

I'm as antsy as a kid in a candy store waiting for Disney to give us the date for this cruise. I got the same email message everyone else got. Oh well, guess there is nothing we can do - but wait!!!

We are still hoping for the WBTA, but did have our TA book EBTA for us this morning. Got a call from her a while ago with our cabin #.

Guess I'll start looking for the thread.

Although I would have loved them to have released the dates and prices for the WBTA, I am still looking forward to this cruise.

The ports are still booked (when I last checked), it won't stay in the Med around the Holiday Season etc so it will have to go back, and they won't send it back empty.

Any way keep positive and keep counting down the days!!

I had my TA look at the EB Panama Canal.

Cat 11B for 1 person is 3200!!!! I can go on the EBTA and WBTA for that price (or close to it). Hey.... I may just do that

Oh well.... no Panama Canal for me. Maybe one day when I'm Gold and have someone to share the cost.
