Galveston

I still haven't heard any (Houston) dcl advertisements about them coming back to Galveston. This leads me to believe that Disney only came back to uphold their agreement. There are so many people in Houston and surrounding areas that still doesn't know that Disney is returning to Galveston. Where are the commercials and the billboards? They made this mistake before...Lets get it right this time Disney.

I am I Houston and although I have not heard any I know other people have as they have posted the return on FB. They are not Disney fans but still heard about it. I know some radio stations will start doing some things this summer.

I wonder what the airports will have this summer. They used to have DVC ads so maybe they will start to pop up this summer

That's the thing… they really didn't have many ad's. There were a lot of people that were in the dark about dcl being in Galveston. When I came back from my cruise, my co-workers were all surprised that Disney was in Galveston.

We sailed on the Inaugural sailing of the DCL Magic out of Galveston in Sept. of 2012. Lot's of hoopla!! We received a lot of extra little gifts from DCL because it was the Inaugural and lots of "Texas" themed extras! Helicopters flying overhead for sailaway.....it was a pretty cool experience.

They did a pretty terrible job of advertising here last time. I think I maybe saw one billboard? I know several people who would have sailed with them had they been aware of their presence earlier.

I agree that many people were really only starting to become aware of them being here when they pulled out.

On the other hand, we're doing the right before Christmas holiday sailing out of Galveston, and its already more than half booked. Main Seating dining is reputedly already full. (At least, we're traveling with a very large party, and one couple in our group was told that Main Seating is already full. We're assuming they'll get it eventually, since they'll be linked to 12 other people signed up for Main Seating, but still, we were shocked to hear that.)

At least they've posted about it on Facebook. It's a start, but I do hope they'll get the word out and it will be more profitable for them. I want them back regularly!

That's exactly what I want too. I want them to get the word out so that they can see that it would be logical to come back (Hopefully in 2016).
