There are no changes at this time to the Disney Fantasy® scheduling.  With this schedule, unless Disney cancels some of the dates already for sale, there is not going to be a dry dock opportunity for the Disney Wonder or the Disney Dream in 2014.

Don’t forget about our onboard credit offer, available on most sailings.  Also we currently have two promotions for our birthday – one giving you double referral credit and the other with a bonus for groups.

Disney Cruise Line 2014 Changes

Yesterday we reported that select sailings on the Disney Dream would be shifting dates.  Today we are reporting that the sailings in late October 2014 through the end of 2014 on the Disney Magic will be switching to the Disney Wonder.  This is because the Disney Magic will be moving to Port Canaveral.  The Disney Wonder schedule previously was not released so this will not be affected.

So what does this all mean?   Here is my speculation:

The Disney Dream already was going to switch sailings from Thursdays and Sundays to Fridays and Mondays around Thanksgiving time.  They are now doing that sooner in October.  From that point on the Dream will be sailing on Fridays and Mondays.  It was indicated that this change is happening because the Disney Magic is moving to Port Canaveral.

We have the Disney Fantasy sailing on Saturdays.  Disney Dream will sail on Fridays and Mondays.  That leaves the remaining days of the week open for the Disney Magic to sail.  I’m guessing that the Disney Magic will sail on Sundays with Western Caribbean sailings.  Right now the Disney Fantasy’s last Western Caribbean sailing is scheduled for November 8.

I think the Disney Wonder will be going into dry dock in October.  The dry dock would be shorter than the Disney Magic’s dry dock.  I don’t think it will be for as long as the Disney Magic will be.  There are only 21 days between the Disney Wonder sailing that returns on October 10 and the next sailing on October 22.  The 2 night sailing on October 20 has been canceled and not replaced, but the October 22 sailing has been replaced.  With three weeks they either won’t do as much or they figure they’ll have it figured out how to do it quicker as the Magic will take 6 weeks.

Additionally, we have heard in the past that the Magic was too top heavy to put Outlook Cafe on it or an AquaDuck.  With the dry dock this fall, they are extending the length of the ship, presumably to allow them to add more weight to the top of the ship.  They may also be doing something with the materials on the top of the ship to lighten it up.  The Wonder doesn’t need these things to be done so it is possible that they won’t need to have as long of a dry dock.

I doubt that we will hear about a dry dock on the Wonder or the Dream before the new Disney Magic itineraries come out.  We know that modifications can be made to the existing sailings next Tuesday and Wednesday, however, we have no idea if the new sailings on the Disney Magic will be available then.  Stay tuned!

Changes for Fall 2014 Disney Dream and Magic Sailings

We have received notice this morning from Disney Cruise Line about changes to the Disney Dream schedule for October and November 2014.  Here are the date changes:

dream change

The reason given for the date changes are that the Disney Magic is moving from Miami to Port Canaveral.  With this, the Disney Dream will alter her schedule to have sailings on Monday and Friday as they can’t have two ships at the terminal on the same day.

We have not been advised of the Disney Magic changes as of yet, but expect to get word this week.  We do know however that the sailings after October 21, 2014 of both the Disney Magic and Disney Dream will be changed.  Since we see that the Disney Dream’s schedule has been removed from the booking engine for the time being, we can see that sailings from November 17, 2014 on appear to not be changing.

Some are speculating that this will allow the Disney Dream to have her drydock in October or November 2014.  I do think the Dream will go to dry dock in November, but not that the sailings for the Dream in October be switched to be on the Disney Magic.  Hopefully this will become clearer in the next couple days.
