    If I book my Disney trip myself while my travel agent is on vacation will she still be able to get credit for the reservation and would she still be able to take care of the other things associated with my trip?

    Hey Howdy Hey Brian and welcome to planDisney!

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort can take some time to plan out many of the details. One huge time saver can be utilizing the expertise of a travel agent that specializes in planning trips to Walt Disney World. They can do s much for you and lighten the load of planning so you can enjoy the fun a little more! Thank you for your question about booking your trip and your travel agent's future involvement. I've got you covered for the answers!

    When it comes to having your travel agent get the credit for your booking if you were the one to make the reservation, it depends. The biggest factor would be the time frame you make your reservation and when your travel agent puts in the request to Disney to take over the reservation. Disney only allows this to happen in a narrow window. I would double-check with your travel agent or the agency in general for that specific window if that is something you wanted to ensure, that your agent gets the credit for your reservation. If your agent can put in the request to take over your reservation then you are all set and they can make the appropriate changes to your reservation as needed. There is also another option you may want to look into. 

    The other option that some agencies will offer is the ability for agents to make all of your plans and such on trips they do not book. This option does come with a fee and some can either have a blanket charge or charge by the day you want them to look into various reservations and such. That information might be available on their website for you to take a look at if you wanted. But again, those options are usually an extra fee, rather, if they were the agents that were in charge of the reservation, all that extra would be included at no cost. 

    As you continue to plan for your upcoming trip, I just wanted to pass along some information on some recent announcements of a couple of highly anticipated attractions opening soon! There is always so much happening in Walt Disney World with regards to celebrations of the seasons and developing attraction information, but recently Disney announced some BIG news for a few. TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom will be speeding Guests across a world with no horizons in the Spring of 2023! Over in EPCOT, construction continues on an almost full reimagination of the whole park. As developments continue, we were fortunate enough to hear that another highly anticipated attraction, Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will be opening in late 2023. There is so much more to keep up with in Walt Disney World and you can do just that over at Disney Parks Blog to hear about all the latest news and announcements that might apply to your upcoming trip!

    I hope this information helped decide when to book your next trip. If you do have any further questions, please feel free to stop back and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
