Question 1: One of the top questions I am asked is, Are you a Travel Agent?
Answer 1:The answer is no, I am not. I do suggest to my clients to work with Disney authorized Travel Agents for their resort reservations, park tickets and dining plan (if applicable). There is no fee to use a Disney Travel Agent.
Question 2: Are you affiliated or connected with Disney?
Answer 2: The answer is no. My connection to Disney is my love of Disney!
Question 3: How often do you go to Disney?
Answer 3: 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 4: What do you do that is different from a Travel Agent?
Answer 4: 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 5: What are your fees? Are you expensive?
Answer 5: Packages are avilable or you can do hourly, they vary and depend upon many factors. The very basic starts at $100 and goes up to $800 plus. It matters how far in advance of your trip you book with me, number of people in party, if I am making dinng and ride reservations, setting up itineraries, and so much more. I want you to get the most out of your days in the park!
Question 6: How far in advance should I book my Disney vacation?
Answer 6: 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 7: How far in advance can I book my dining reservations?
Answer 7: 180 days, yes 180 days- about 6 months. If you want the best locations and times you NEED to do them at 180 days for best chance of getting them.
Question 8: How many days should we spend in the parks?
Answer 8: This depends on your group. Magic Kingdom tends to be the park most people spend more time at. This will depend on how many days you are there as well. If you go over 5 days at Disney make sure to plan for a down day to just relax. With 5 days in the parks, most would do 2 days at Magic Kingdom and one day in each of the other parks.
Question 9: What is a Fastpass and how much does it cost?
Answer 9: 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 10: Why should I hire you when I can do it all myself?
Answer 10: 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 11: Can you guarantee getting me the dining and Fastpass reservations?
Answer 11: 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.
