Hi! I'm a DCL newbie (Disneyland expert) looking to book in Nov 2012 for our first cruise for our family of 5. I know the schedules won't be out for a few months, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can. You are all so very helpful! Is it too soon to start working with a TA so that I can be ready to make the reservation as soon as the booking dates are released? How does DCL announce the new dates? Do they just show up on the website one day? Should I be watching here for some sort of advance notice that Castaway Club members receive and would be posting about? Any suggestions are welcome and much appreciated.
