How exactly do you pay $1400 for 2 verandah staterooms?

You didn't state it was a concierge. Wouldn't that make it more expensive than other 1 bedroom cabins that are not concierge? Perhaps, much more so?

BTW, you're welcome. No charge for my free advice.

They differ depending on the ship.... Magic/Wonder or Dream/Fantasy. They are over 500 square feet, one or two bedrooms, a refrigerator, sink, dining room.

Wow! 500 sq is huge for a ship. I was thinking the OP was belly aching about the rate for the 200 - 300 sf cabins that I book on DCL. Thanks for clarifying that.

I wonder how much more expensive these 500 sf "one bedroom" cabins are vs. a 5-person verandah room?

Does not justify to you but if you want the Disney experience, there is only one Disney. If you want to see Tarzan and Belle and the Lion King you go to WDW...really doesn't matter what it costs to get in Universal or Busch Gardens.

Why are you even "giving free advice" when you apparently don't know what you're giving advice about?

All one-bedrooms are concierge. And yes, they are one-bedrooms, with a separate living room. You cannot book a one-bedroom on DCL without paying the concierge upcharge. Some people save their money to sail only concierge (no, I'm not one of them) and that is their right without you judging them for it, much less posting information when you haven't done your research.

The change in concierge pricing has been drastic on the new ships without a significant change in service or itinerary, which is why people think it's worth posting about. If you can't be bothered to learn about a topic before posting in a thread as if you already have, just try reading the thread without posting and learn something instead.

Based on previous years opening day pricing dates, pricing did not go up by that much. But it's possible they adjusted the low season dates...

I am afriadd I totally disagree with your position. The facts are Disney Cruise Line offers a very specail type of cruise, and better then most lines.

If you dont feel its worth the money then don't sail DCL.

Apparently others feel the price is proper for the cruise being provided. If they don't the price will come down

How many other cruise lines can you put 5 in a suite (much less 7)? That's the main reason why we chose DCL.

Almost all of the other lines have equally outrageously expensive suites, but they surely only want to put four or less people in them. What in the heck is up with that??!! The same thing with hotel rooms. You can get an 1800 sqft hotel suite, but it will only sleep four (and sometimes 3).

Me with many hotels: "So, you'd rather I pay $250/nt each for two rooms, than (insert outrageously large number here)/nt and put a roll away in that gigantic suite mam?", "Yes, that's our policy". I'll just find another hotel.

Is there something wrong with my wanting to put all five of our family in one container? Apparently cruise ships and hotels thinks so (except Disney cruise ships and hotels of course, and they are the ones that tend get our money because of it).

Just to chime in a little. We do have a cruise reserved for Memorial Day week 2013 that we booked on opening day. When the 2014 prices were published, the same week (Memorial Day week 2014) generated a 19% increase in fare cost for us from 2013. Just did not make us jump for it considering it will be going to the exact same ports of call as in 2013.

As some have already mentioned, perhaps a different vacation during the same week might be better.
