Well, my understanding of the rumor is, the announcement of the new itineraries will be on the 11th. Gold & Platinum CC members can book on the 12th, and everyone else on the 13th.

that's what I understand since I didn't know it didn't include silver for early bookings. No one knows what time they open up?

We leave on our first Disney cruise next month, so I'm not up to speed on why there is a need to book immediately when the new itineraries come out. Is it a pricing thing, or availability? I need to learn!!!

Pricing, typically cruise prices are their lowest on opening day (not just DCL, but all cruiselines). As space fills on a cruise, prices rise.

Availability, if you have a specific room you want, your best chance to get it would be opening day.

July 4th would be ideal for us too, but if the prices are too high compared to other dates then we are flexible. Kids have summer off, which would mean we take a week to 10 days off, should be doable But July 4th will be fanatstic

Early June tends to have better pricing I've noticed. I also seem to remember sales popping up during that timeframe. I seem to remember a kids sail free promo last year I think for the early June Alaska trips.

They start making bookings at 8 a.m. ET. You need to call in since they won't be available online until the silver/general public booking release.

Thanks, I'd be general anyways since our 1st DCL isn't until May...not that it would matter to be silver it appears. The gold and platinum people can give us pricing though right?

On our June 2, 2012 cruise they ended up offering GT rates AND an amazing DVC offer for balconies!

That is generally what has happened. I'm surprised there aren't any threads locked already if this is happening on Tuesday.

How was the weather? When I researched, I remember finding that July tends to be a little warmer with less rain. Guess thats the tradeoff for the cheaper fare.
