Quoting the official Blizzard website:

Heroes of Azeroth, prepare to embark for an exotic new frontier! World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™ is launching on September 25, 2012 and you can be ready to play when the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally. Plus, for the first time ever, players will have the option to upgrade a pre-purchase to the all-new Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with all of the in-game items from the retail Collector’s Edition, including a World of Warcraft pet and mount, banner sigil and accent for Diablo® III, and® portraits for StarCraft® II.

Honestly this is a sweet surprise for me because my wild wild guess is that MoP will be available during (or at least near) the holiday season (December 2012) just like WoW Cataclysm way back in December 2010. But this is welcome news for all the World of Warcraft fans out there!
