Speculation. True. We shall see.

All speculation with regards to the port calendars of course!

So, if this is somewhat correct, it looks like there won't be a 8-night Bahamian Cruise out of Galveston on the Magic anymore in 2014? January - May? That was the one I was interested in booking.

I was selfishly hoping the Magic's schedule on the Grand Cayman port website hinted at a 6 night Western/8 night Bahama split from Galveston.

Our goal for 2014 is one night at WDW (my DDs want to see the 7 Dwarf Mine when it opens), followed by a cruise over Thanksgiving 2014. We could fly & do the Fantasy, but I was hoping for something other than the Western route, and it looks like that is what the Fantasy would be doing.

I don't think I would rule it out yet. I don't think they can do alternating 7 nights in the winter due to the Princess Cruise Ships in Galveston along with Carnival, and RCCL. I think there are port constraints unless they build the 3rd pier.

I'm just not sure if I should book something on the Fantasy as the dates are going to open up soon? And the Magic dates probably won't until January. I'm just worried if I don't book something on the Fantasy thinking that I can get that 8-night in Galvaston that I'm going to end up paying a lot more. Maybe I'm just making a big deal out of nothing.

You can do what I'm planning to do which is book the Fantasy and then move it to the Galveston Cruise once the dates are announced if the schedule/price makes sense.

Ok, for when these dates DO come out (for those of you that have been around ON OPENING DAY) what's the website like? I know they've been working on it, so it may not be the same, but does it tend to crash or give overload messages a lot, from everyone trying to book all at once?

I believe this is connected to Disney's release of a movie - Tinkerbell maybe.

The last time they did this they announced some new itineraries with one of them being the NYC port! Maybe that's what they plan to do? I can't figure out the "huge and magically chilly surprise" comment though I would LOVE for them to announce the itineraries a day ahead of opening up bookings. It would give everyone time to figure out what they really want!

I can't go, but I wonder if this will be podcast or anything?

Edited to add: Oh wait, I just realized this is a DVC announcement. I know NY has the highest DVC membership. So who knows

It could be the Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp, coming out this summer.

If it was a movie release, what would that have to do with the vacation club?Maybe it is the release of more New York sailings.
