When to go to Walt Disney World: Disney World Tickets Walt Disney World Vacation Packages: The eternal debate:
Travel Agent or Planning your own Disney World Vacation

As you can see, planning a Disney vacation can be easy if you just do a little bit of research. Which park has Early Theme Park Entry / Extended Theme Park Hours? Is there a special event going on? Are all of the attractions open? Is my favorite restaurant available? When can I book it? The list is endless and can become quite time consuming.

Planning a Walt Disney World vacation is different than it was 10, or even 5 years ago. With the addition of Disney Genie, My Disney Experience, and everything else that goes along with planning a Walt Disney World vacation, it can feel like a full time job.

This is where using a travel agent that specializes in booking Disney vacations is invaluable. We're biased and think that Dreams Unlimited Travel is your best choice on the market. Your Dreams agent knows all of the ins and outs of planning a Disney vacation. Tours, dining, recreation, etc, can all be taken care of in advance. Our agents can even add the information to your My Disney Experience itinerary if you’d like! They can also send you a customized itinerary to print out and take with you if you’d prefer that. In addition to your own dining reservations, touring tips and the like, the itinerary can include the Park hours, when Extra Magic Hours are scheduled, what time the parades take place and if an attraction is closed during your visit. As always, using a travel agent will not cost you anything extra.

Another advantage of using Dreams is in finding Disney discounts. If there’s one in effect when you book, great, but what if one comes out later on? Your Dreams agent will constantly check to see if you can get a better rate. They have saved their clients countless thousands of dollars over the years by doing this. Forget about Disney giving you a better price if a new offer is released after you've booked with them. While the DIS does let you know when these discounts come out, if you don’t see it right away, there’s a chance you’ll miss out on getting it. Let our experienced agents do that work for you.

There you have it, Walt Disney World Vacation Planning 101. With these basics, you’re off to a good start. For hardcore planners, there are also a ton of useful tips found here: Disney Planning.

A little bit of advance homework should make your Disney vacation what it was meant to be. A memorable, magical trip that everyone will enjoy.
