    Hello again, Why does the tell me to book my cruise with a travel agent? Does Mouse only book land? Thanks. P.S. Your site helped our past trip so, so much. Thank you for the great tips. We had no problems due to you. does not directly book any vacation components. Whether you are ready to explore Walt Disney World or sail the seven seas aboard the Disney Cruise Line, will offer tremendous help in your vacation planning.

    Once you are ready to book your vacation, MouseSavers recommends a travel agent for convenience for land and sea vacations. It's often possible to save money when booking the components of a Walt Disney World vacation (tickets and hotel) separately rather than a package.

    You will find that with a Disney Cruise that there is not a large difference in price whether booking the trip yourself or via an agent. A travel agent may offer your family an Onboard Credit, however. Sometimes this can be quite significant such as a $200 credit for a family of four. The typical credit is from $25 to $200. That OBC or Onboard Credit can be used towards shore excursions, bar bills, spa treatments and other extra costs while aboard the ship. A meal at Palo would be one great way to spend your credit!

    I have personally used Dreams Unlimited and Mouse Fan Travel for my Disney vacations.
