The Top 5 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent for Disney Vacations
Whether you've planned a Disney trip once or twice in the past, visit annually, or are a first timer you may have noticed that Disney vacations can be full of options. Having a variety of options with any vacation is thrilling, but can also come with a bit of stress when it comes to making decisions and coordinating all those little details. Disney World especially, takes a lot of coordinating, in-advance planning, and time to book those dining reservations and highly coveted FastPass+ selections.
It sounds like a lot, right? It really doesn't have to be. With the help of an authorized Disney travel agent, you'll be on your way to a magical vacation without the stress. Here are the top 5 things you should consider using a travel agent to plan your Disney Vacation.
1. It's FREE - that's right, it's entirely free to you to use my services as a travel agent.
So you're probably thinking... what's the catch? How is it free and how do you get paid?
No catch, it doesn't cost you a penny over what you'd pay by booking through Disney directly. As a travel agent, I am paid by the travel supplier (in this case Disney) for assisting you in the vacation process.
2. It saves you so much time!
When planning a Disney vacation you have to arrange a lot of details - A LOT of details. I not only help you plan the logistics of your trip, but I wake up early to make sure all those advanced dining reservations and Fastpass+ selections are scheduled for you. Let me take that weight off your shoulders as I book your favorite selections. We will discuss a plan of action together and I’ll help bring it to life without you spending the time or worrying about the logistics of it all.
Here’s an example of what logistics we might be working on:
Places to meet your favorite characters
Daily restaurant selections and advanced dining reservations for table service restaurants
Rides that will be best suited for your family including the Fastpass selections and overall timing of making those happen
Selecting your magic bands (how to use them - if you’re new to the Disney World Experience)
Disney photo opportunities and packages
Transportation from airport to your resort
Extra Magic Hours (What are they and how you want to utilize them)
Special add-ons like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Pirates League, Fireworks Cruises, Behind the Scenes Tours, Dessert Parties, Holiday Parties, and Spa Experiences
3. We’re highly knowledgeable about all things Disney!
Disney travel agents have been through Disney’s College of Knowledge - a program that trains travel agents on the ins and outs of Disney Vacation planning. Not all travel agents are equal in experience and understanding of the Walt Disney World Resort. When considering a travel agent be sure to do your research and make sure that they work for a reputable Disney authorized agency.
I work with Fairytale Journeys, LLC, a Platinum Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. In addition to my training through Disney, I’ve been on over 20 vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort and am a former Cast Member. Even with all my training and experience, I still work alongside my fellow agents to stay current on all the latest events on the Disney property.
4. We work to find you the best deals and promotions.
Travel agents can see all promotional options when processing your quote utilizing the Disney reservation system. When a new promotion is announced we are quick to find out if it can be applied to your Disney vacation and if it can will immediately notify you of your savings.
5. You have a direct contact for your vacation - no waiting on hold with Disney to make adjustments or ask questions about your trip.
Life happens and sometimes you need to make adjustments to your trip, or have a last minute question about the logistics. By working with a travel agent, you have direct access to someone who can help you make alterations, add-on experiences, and answer your questions without waiting on hold with Disney.
