    We'd go back to Alaska with DCL (did it in 2012) if they return to Seattle. The Seattle stop included Victoria, which was great even though it was short.

    Our family members did DCL out of Vancouver and the flights were pricey, hotels pricey, transfers pricey.

    Seattle was a breeze--cheap flights, public transportation to DT, extra port. Port times are short but that doesn't bother us at all. We're not (at this point) all day excursion people.

    We did the 2012 Alaska cruise that started in Seattle and ended in Vancouver. We were told by crew members that in the future they would be going in and out of Vancouver. We found Vancouver to be extremely easy. (we also found Seattle to be easy, but I don't think the switch will be a big problem) We are really hoping to book 2014... today would be great! LOL

    We did the awesome DCL Alaska cruise out of Vancouver in July 2012. We looked at the Itineraries for both Seattle and Vancouver. No contest. The Vancouver one was vastly superior to the Seattle one. Yup, a little more expensive to fly to Vancouver but so worth it!

    Just called Disney travel agent and they said Silver castaway members can book on Thursday (02/14/2013)!!!!! So i am assuming gold and Platinum will be able to book tomorrow.

    Does anyone know if the 2014 itineraries are the same as 2013? Other than the added 9-night cruise? Thanks!
    Also, has anyone flown into/out of Seattle and driven/taken train to Vancouver? Airfare may be much cheaper that way. Thanks again!

    Yes, amtrak is a great option from Seattle to Vancouver. It's very affordable (usually around $30 per adult) and beautiful. It's super easy, too. There is also a shuttle bus that can take you from Seattle to Vancouver for a good price.

    I was hoping Disney would do Glacier Bay instead of Tracy Arm, any idea if they are considering this for the 2014 itineraries? Holland America is the only one I can find doing Glacier Bay from Vancouver (at least in 2013)...

    There is a very lengthy application process to get permits to sail into Glacier Bay. DCL tried to get a permit before they started sailing to Alaska but either gave up or were not successful. Cruise lines that have sailed Alaska forever seem to have them wrapped up.

    No, prices are not the same for all dates. Prices go up for peak seasons, i.e. June and July.
