Welcome to the group.
My advice- annual passes, Florida discount rates, and sunblock lotion.
We've been talking about relocating back to Florida when hubby retires in about 15 years.
Unless Disney needs someone to take care of its airplanes!!

Since the itineraries that were announced did nothing for me, it looks more like a possibility that I WILL do the WBTA (can't go a year without a DCL cruise, can I???). Now, if this could leave out of Venice, that would be ideal

Thanks for the welcome everyone! We are excited for the new adventure ahead of us! Now if only DCL would announce the WBTA and I could add another journey to this new adventure! For those of you who reside in the home of the World, I may be asking some advice in the future if that is ok!

Ohhh what a shame....you are the first person I have heard that doesn't want romantic Venice on the itinerary.

There are over 130 of us that would love to leave from Venice after the dry docking....

It is something to see huge ships tower over the buildings as they sail in and out - makes for great photo's.

I DO want Venice. I wanted Venice & Greece in the same itinerary, so that's why those cruises announced aren't for me, since it was 1 or the other.

I would love for the TA to start in Venice-it's an amazing city (was there with my father in 1990).

It sounds wonderful - have never been to Italy in my travels. Hey, there is no penalty to dream, but think of all of us seeing it become a reality!!!

I noticed the maintenance post about being closed and thinking it might mean they are loading the new itineraries.

They close it around that time every night for updates.

West coaster that gets frustrated by it on a regular basis.

Sure just ask away. We live about 25 miles west of Tampa on the coast. I had the pleasure of mowing my yard today and trimming the hedges. Get to do this year round. Wouldn't have mowed today but next door neighbor man mowed his last week and mine was begining to look ragged. He is one of those guys that goes out with a ruler and if his grass is 1/4" taller then mine he runs and jumps on his riding mower and fires her up to mow his grass down to the smae height as mine. (I wait untill mine measures at least 1/2" taller!!!)

Apologies ...I read it wrong. And yes, it would be great if they had done Venice, Dubrovnik and Greece in all one cruise.

Hope to meet you on the WB

Which I hope they announce SoOON

I have a couple of questions for all of you veteran WBTA cruisers out there. This will be DW's and my first Transatlantic Cruise. This is something DW and I have wanted to do for sometime now, but it just never worked out for us in the past. Did Disney, on the past Transatlantic cruises, wait on announcing the West Bound Transatlantic Cruise? Or is this one the first? If Disney did this before how long did they wait to announce the West Bound TA? Just wondering. Thanks all.
