Yes and yes -- you can transfer to Costco and the cash card will be the same. You must transfer within 30 days.

Not only that but I hear you can't use the 10 percent discount for booking on board for this route

Disney really don't make it easy for people

Am shocked these cruises even full up at this price as that's crazy
Yes, we really do think it could/will be that high. We're hoping to be wrong... but they have charged as much in the past and done OK enough to keep doing it. I too am surprised that it still fills, but hay, a lot of people have more money than I, so it is what it is!

And after you transfer it to Costco, can you still "see" the reservation at the DCL website? Can you do stuff like booking excursions and Palo at the DCL website?

I can't speak for Costco specifically, but I had this exact conversation with a TA this morning and she said if I booked directly through DCL and then transferred the ressie to her, that the OBC she offerred would only be about half of what she could offer if she made the ressie, as DCL gives the TA less commission if people book directly through DCL out of the chute.

Yes - everything is still on the DCL site except $$$. Yes, you still do your online check-in and book excursions, etc. on the DCL site. If you want to change staterooms or move dates though, you must call Costco.

That's the case with most TA's I think, but Costco hasn't followed suit. They still give the full cash card even when its transferred. Hope this continues to be the case - love that cash card!

Not sure what 9B would be but I booked this years WBTA September 2014 for 2 adults in 11B for $1542 total including taxes/fees. This was with OBB discount. Booked opening gold day.

Which route or routes did you hear you won't be able to use the OBB 10% discount on? Is this a guess or was this blocked on similar routes in the past?

That has to be pure speculation since DCL only introduced blackout dates when the first 2015 dates were released a few months ago.

I would add that a few specialised DCL TAs are speculating that any new type of itinerary may well start in a blackout for OBB discount, but nothing is confirmed.

It's just the speculation is coming from those who sell cruises.
