As summer approaches millions of people are planning their family vacations. Walt Disney World is one of the most popular family summer vacations there is on the face of the earth! With children out of school it is a most convenient time for people to travel. Now, on top of the crowds add all of the major overhauling and drastic changes Walt Disney World has gone through just within the past six months and it is a recipe for disaster if you are not properly prepared and thoroughly planned for your vacation months before you even leave the house!
Did you know you are able to book all of your dining reservations 180 days prior to your arrival? That is six months before you even get there! Were you aware these reservations can be booked up solid in the blink of an eye? Also one of the big changes in WDW is the Fast Pass Plus which is now reserved online 90 days prior to your arrival. Gone are the days of getting to the parks at your leisure and getting a hard Fast Pass ticket in your hand.
Now, don't get me wrong. I am not looking to make a WDW vacation sound unattractive because of all the work that goes into it. If planned just right, it can be one of the most rewarding vacations you and your loved ones will experience. In order to plan it correctly you must either know all there is to know about the changes in place and how they effect the Parks, The Resorts, Dining, Attractions etc. or be planning the trip with someone who does. As an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner I feel there has been no better time for us as Planners to be able to assure our clients they will not get lost in the crowds! There are some amazing times to be had this summer in Walt Disney World if you or your planner tackle the hurdles of change Disney has thrown into the mix. The changes may seem overwhelming but as an end result with proper planning these changes can ensure us that were getting the most possible out of your vacation!
So many times we have potential clients reach out for information on a Disney vacation to end up booking with another platform because they think they may save a few dollars. In the end each one of them come back to us for more information, some even cancelling their vacations to re-book with us. Not many consumers are aware that Authorized Disney Vacation planners are 100% free upon booking your vacation saving you alot of time and effort trying to figure out how to book everything on your own. Booking through a Vacation planner allows you to have 24/7 access to your agent at all times. Gives you the ability to have as much or as little planning and involvement with your vacation itinerary. Our agents and planners are always on the dining page booking dining for the most sought after reservations that are almost always sold out and that is not something just any Travel agent will be willing to do for you. We have a deep passion for Disney and hold alot of our own insider information we are willing to share to make your trip as magical as we would want our own. One of my favorite things we offer is free vacation savings monitoring. Even after we book your trip we monitor every promotion that comes out and always try to find the best fit to save our clients the most money possible, again not something most agents will do for you. Disney World Resort in Orlando has gone through some major changes in the past year which make it very tough for first timers or clients who have not recently traveled there to understand all the pre-planning it takes to make the trip successful. It is like taking your Jaguar to a Ford dealership, you would only want a specialist working on the Jaguar who knows the car inside and out. It is always best in life to go with someone who specializes in what they do. Have you ever had any experiences with booking a Disney vacation on your own that you wish went differently or wish you had help booking?
