Well, because they’re FREE! Well, most of them are. Bottom line is that I am. Yes, I promise that if you do an online quote yourself and ask me for the same details in a trip, I will come back with the same price. So how do I get paid? Disney sees the value in experts like me, and will pay me to assist you in planning your travel details.
I know you might still be asking why you need help, when you can do everything online. Well, it’s a little trickier when it comes to that. I remember planning our first Disney trip, before I was a travel agent. It was for me, my husband, my parents, his parents, his sister, her husband, and their two young boys. 10 people total. We were celebrating first visits, an anniversary, birthdays, and Halloween. And we were staying in three different resorts. My husband and I had the deluxe dining plan, while others had (what I call) the basic dining plan, and some didn’t have a dining plan at all. It was all over the place.
I spent countless hours online, reading up on different tips and recommendations about touring Disney World. I learned about how to get the most out of Extra Magic Hours and FastPasses. I learned about making dining reservations 180 days in advance to help me get the restaurant and times that we needed. I learned about the different events happening during our trip. I also spent months planning everything.
If I had known about the free services of Disney travel agents, like myself, I would have saved myself hours and hours spent researching and asking questions on message boards and getting opinions and advice from different directions on every topic. A Disney travel agent will listen to what you want to get out of your trip, and they will make some common sense recommendations based on your goals and budget.
Disney World has changed a lot since our first trip, so now more than ever, it’s important to have the guidance of a trusted professional to help you plan the details of your vacation. With the introduction of FastPass+ and My Disney Experience, it’s almost a requirement.
Also, keep in mind that I am a full service travel agent. I do specialize in Disney Destinations, but I can also package a Disney vacation with a few days at Universal Studios. If a Disney cruise is out of your budget, I can quote several affordable alternatives for you. Maybe you just want to take the family on an educational trip to Washington, DC. I got you covered.
If I haven’t sold you on the idea of giving me a chance to plan your next trip, just ask for a free, no obligation quote by contacting me either by phone, email, Facebook, or here on my blog. I hope to hear from you soon!
