Nothing wrong with a little dreaming...

...but whatever update they are doing is for all/most of the Disney Parks reservations systems (WDW etc.) so the timing is coincidental.

Plus for them to need downtime probably means they are doing a complex application update, not just adding new data (cruise dates) to an existing application. For comparison, last year the addition of the 2013 cruise dates did not involve any planned down time.

My prediction? Tuesday, October 16th for Dream/Fantasy 2014 dates to be bookable, basing on last year's Tuesday October 18th opening day for 2013 dates.

You're not dreaming, that is a very good possibility. The last two years the rates were released on Oct 19, 2011 and Oct 20, 2010 so this is the time of year to see at least the known cruises like the 7 day caribbean and shorter Bahamian cruises (Fantasy & Dream).

It is fairly common for the system to be down for a period of time prior to releasing rates so it may happen this week.

I've never booked opening day, do they release the dates and prices a few days ahead of time or is everything released at once? Thanks!

Any ideas as to whether they will bring back the Double Dip cruises in 2014?

Yes, you can -- however, when you get around to adding the other people in your cabin you will be required to pay that day's going rate, NOT the rate when you put the original deposit.

And they may not be add-able if the lifeboat station is full, regardless of empty beds in a given cabin

If they were so popular why did they get rid of most of them?
