I’ve never used a Travel Agent to book my Disney Vacations. Why? Because I thought they’d tack on fees or hidden charges somewhere – they’ve got to earn a commission, right? So, I’ve always booked my vacations online through DisneyWorld.com or by calling. But, I recently realized my assumptions were dead WRONG!
When using a no-fee Disney Travel specialist, there aren’t any extra costs built in! It’s all FREE! Let’s say you’re going to book a Disney Vacation yourself using DisneyWorld.com. You pick out your resort, your choice of tickets, you reserve your magical express transportation, you make all of your own ADRs, and you pay $3,000. OR you could use a no-fee Disney travel agent, and still pay $3,000 (not a penny more!) and they’ll do all of that same work for you! Plus, some agents will throw in some extra perks, such as free autograph books for your kids, or a Disney gift card for you. They’ll also be happy to give you recommendations and other helpful tips. Sounds like a good deal to me!
So how do these agents make money? Well, Disney pays them a commission after your trip has been completed. So, you can either book your vacation directly online or book through a no-fee travel agent… either way, you’re paying the same price, but by going through an agent you’re saving time and gaining a beneficial service of helpfulness!
To help gain a little more perspective on what these agents will actually do for you, we’re going to be interviewing one agent per week over the next 4 weeks. You’ll learn a great deal from them as to how their services work and what they can do for you and your upcoming Disney vacation. And it all starts TOMORROW!!
One last word of advice, when searching for a no-fee Disney agent, be sure to look for terms such as “no-fee service,” or “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner,” etc. to be sure that their services are indeed free, resulting no extra charges. If you’re unsure – ask them flat out when first contacting them.
