    Hi Disney Moms! I love your panel! I am planning a trip for my family of 7 to WDW 2012. I've found a lot of useful information but now i am unsure as to whether I want to book directly through Disney or a travel agent. What do you suggest?

    Hi Anita!

    I suggest using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  Those are travel agents who specialize in visiting Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, and Adventures by Disney.  It shouldn't cost you anything.

    I make that recommendation because they can help you with questions, planning, making advanced dining reservations, and looking out for ways to save money should Disney release a discount code that would apply in your situation. 

    I used to always make my own reservations, because I thought I knew everything about Disney.  However, during the past several years, I've always used an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  She has saved me money in several occasions, offered advice on my plans, explained some policy that I wasn't aware of, etc. I consider her a friend.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
