Does DCL ever release new dates without an announcement beforehand?

It's probably just regular site maintenance, but I was just on DCL's site, and when I tried to search for a cruise I got the following message:

DisneyCruiseLine.com is currently undergoing maintenance.

On deck, onshore and online, Disney Cruise Line is committed to providing you and your family with the most magical vacation on the high seas. Currently, we're making things even better at DisneyCruiseLine.com, so please be sure to check back here soon. We appreciate your patience and look forward to sailing with you soon.

In the meantime, if you need to plan and prepare for an upcoming Disney cruise, please visit the Planning Center. We also invite you to explore all of the magic that awaits you onboard our entire fleet of Disney Cruise Line ships, in addition to the cruises and destinations we currently offer.

I have experienced this with just general site maintenance. Usually Travel Agents get notice and some of them are kind enough to post here. There have been times in the past when the ports for a particular ship(s) did not change and the dates just appeared on the site.

The last half of 2012 for the Fantasy just appeared without notice and people just happened to find out when they were checking DCL's site. Of course if DCL thinks the itineraries are blasé enough they give notice around 7:30 that new dates will open at 8 a.m. for everyone, without platinum & gold having the benefit of booking ahead.

Very interesting. Well, I will hope for advance notice since I'm hoping for some exciting new itineraries for 2015! I just checked again and was able to do a search, so they must have finished with whatever they were doing!
