    Is it difficult to get a cat.1, 2, or 3? If one would like to book the Walt's suite should one go through a travel agent? Everytime I check I never see it offered on the Disney reservations site. Also how much does the Cat. 1 suite go for a family of 2 adults and a child? Thanks

    They are very difficult to reserve unless you are traveling in the off season. Most of the "in-season" Suites are reserved months if not years in advance. The best thing to do is check with some of the travel agents such as Dreams Unlimited. You can also fax a request in to inventory control for future cruises. We were waitlisted for the 2004 10 day Holiday cruise fro 16 months before we got a room. We had faxed a request in for any future special sailings and managed to reserve a Cat. 3 on the 11 day this Sept. We hope to get a suite in the Med. next year.

    I can't give you an exact figure on the price of a Cat. 1 - but I would expect to pay at least $10k family of 3 for a 7 day (based on what my previous and upcoming cruises are costing.)

    The waitlist for the cat. 1 or 2 suites is generally 2 years... or more.
    Cat. 3's are much easier to get since there are so many more of them, but still you'll need to book several months in advance. I have always worked with Dreams Unlimited Travel, and they have provided fantastic service, including bookings in both the Walt and Roy suites the last 2 years!

    Have they started the non-refundable policy on the suites? I thought I had read it would be starting with the 2007 cruises.

    I've seen several posts in the past where people were able to get into a suite about the time final payment was due.
    I'm guessing folks might think twice about holding a suite on the chance that they might cruise if they stand to loose a sizeable deposit.

    Maybe the suites will be a bit easier to get now.
