    Hello again! Are there certain perks or benefits provided when booking thru the agents over the phone or on-line? Or can I just book with my local travel agent?

    Hi Rebecca!

    You can definitely book with a travel agent you know or a local travel agent.  That said, I do recommend booking through an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  He or she is a travel agent who specializes in trips to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, on board the Disney Cruise Line, and with Adventures by Disney.  The reason I suggested working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is because he or she will be very knowledgeable about Disney and will also be on the lookout for any discount codes that Disney releases.  If Disney releases a code, he or she will usually figure out if it can save you money and if it can be applied to your reservation.  I have used one for several years, and she has saved me a lot of money over the years.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
