If I switch my dummy cruise from 2013 into 2014, can I go out and get the trip insurance then (outside Disney)? Or did i have to pick it up immediately when I booked my dummy cruise to get the best pricing? I only did a dummy 3 day cruise at the time, looking to do a 7 night.

Booking it early not only gives you better pricing, but buying it within 10 days of the original booking also allows for pre-existing conditions.

If you flip a cruise, the insurance company still goes by the date that the original deposit was put down. Flipping it does not give you a newer booking date. And if you had booked it outside of Disney on the original cruise, you can no longer flip the insurance too. Believe me, I've been on the merry-go-round about this in the past. For us, pre-existing conditions are vital. We can't book any insurance now that will include that once we flip the current cruise to 2014.

Uggh, it's all so confusing.

I can't even get the Disney insurance then can I?

I am optimistic about prices as I don't see how they can possibly sustain the kind of high prices we have been seeing lately with 4 ships sailing out of Florida with 3 doing similar short itineraries, during a slower time of the year for cruises. I know I certainly would not expect to pay the same money for the same cruise on the Magic that I would on the Dream, regardless of how the renovation turns out, the ship is still 15 years old, and the Dream is only 2 years old, and has more attractions.

We are currently Silver and got the email from Disney today. I wondered whether Gold and Platinum actually get pricing and booking privileges earlier than Silver. Does anyone know the answer to that?

Look to the bottom of the screen on the right - it has a link to 2014 itineraries there.

I found the link at the bottom of the page but it is as vague as the announcement was. No dates, no specifics.

I didn't see them on the DCL website. They came in a special email.

OK. So Gold and Platinum get one day advance on Silver. I wonder when the general public will have access. Maybe Silver doesn't really get to book early, but just gets the notice that it will be available. My email said I could book on Thursday, Dec. 6. Maybe just the opportunity to be ready is our perk :-)
