Question 1: How do you keep up with all the changes and how often do you go to Disney?
Answer : I keep up with the changes by traveling to Disney regularly, reading, reaching out to contacts at Disney and in the travel world, and media, just to name some of my resources. I go to Disney 2 or more times a year to keep up on all the new rides/attractions. It is important to also keep up on any procedural/policy changes.
Question 2: What do you do that is different from a Travel Agent?
Answer : Many Travel Agents can/will do many of the things I do, though I believe in face to face meets and getting to know you. I want to meet you where and when it is convenient for you. Coming to your home, office, coffee shop, etc. I come to where YOU are.
By meeting with you and getting to know you and your travel group, the plans are for YOUR days IN the parks. The dining and ride reservations are based upon what YOU want.
Through education you know how to best tour the parks to maximize your time BEFORE arriving at the park. The design of your itinerary in the parks suits YOUR needs and wants, after all it is YOUR vacation.
I make myself available to you while planning the trip, during the trip and after the trip (need to work on those Memory maker pictures).
Question 3: What are your fees? Are you expensive?
Answer : Packages are available or you can do hourly, they vary and depend upon many factors. The very basic starts at $150 and goes up to $900 plus. It matters how far in advance of your trip you book with me, number of people in party, if I am making dining and ride reservations, setting up itineraries, and so much more. Or you can set up a consultation with me and just pick my brain for 30 or 60 minutes. I want you to get the most out of your days in the park!
Question 4: How far in advance should I book my Disney vacation?
Answer : My recommendation is 8-10 months in advance. Keep in mind that discounts for on site resorts may not be out yet, usually you can rebook to get the better rate.
Question 5: What is a Fastpass and how much does it cost?
Answer : There is no fee for using Fastpass, it is included in your ticket price. Fastpass is kind of a “go to the head of the line” ticket. It is a must use for your Disney park touring.
Question 6: Why should I hire you when I can do it all myself?
Answer : Yes, you can do it all yourself. Do you have the time and want to use your time to do that? I save your time in the planning process and in the parks so YOU don’t take TIME away from your family or work. Using my personal experiences and tools I have developed working with clients, we create a great experience for YOU at Disney.
Question 7: Can you guarantee getting me the dining and Fastpass reservations?
Answer : Sadly no. Disney controls the number of reservations due to space. Yet, I will keep trying up to the day you leave to get them for you.
