    I'm just stuck until we find out the prices for rooms at wdw in January. Once we can figure out the price then it will be easier to decide. Ideally I'd love to do the 7 night cruise to western carribean and then 2 nights 3 full days at the parks. That's a lot of money though! Are there good deals and promotions for the ships and if so, how far in advance do they come out? Do the cruises go out of new jersey new York or Maryland? I think I heard last year was the last year from new York. We live in ct. Would be nice to save flight money

    A dummy booking s when you rebook while onboard your cruise so you can save an extra 10% off a future cruise...it is called a dummy date as you don;t have to go on the actual date you rebook for...you can bump it out. For instance we rebooked for 10/2013 but bumped it out to 6/2014.

    You can get an idea of WDW room rates based on the current year. You can even go ahead and book a room only now, they'll tell you the estimated rate (based on this year) and that it might change. You can convert to a package or other deal if/when released.

    Cruise deals...lowest fares are traditionally when first released as fares will increase as more staterooms are sold. That said, DCL has offered some great discounts as *GT rates, which are more last-minute, usually appearing less than 75 days before the sailing. These rates have several restrictions associated (no changes, PIF, DCL assigns the room, etc.) but are highly discounted. Other deals like Kids Sail Free and military discounts may or may not be offered, generally if a cruise is not selling well.

    Currently DCL has cruises for next January out of Port Canaveral, FL, Miami, FL and Galveston, TX. There are other home ports at other times of year; cruises out of NYC, if offered again (and I would love that!) are likely to be summer only.
