    How do I know the travel agent I found online is a certified agent through Disney?

    Hi Taylor!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with this great question! 

    I'm excited you are starting the planning process for a Walt Disney World vacation later this year! With everything that goes into creating a magical visit, getting as much help as possible is always the best idea. Using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is definitely the way to go. You'll be able to work closely with them to book your vacation package along with any travel needs.

    Taylor, you'll be happy to know that most travel agencies should be able to book your Disney vacation. However, many companies specialize specifically in Walt Disney World Resort trips. These companies are usually part of Disney's EarMarked Program, which helps designate themselves as Authorized Disney Vacation Planners. To be included in this program, the travel agency must demonstrate a track record of booking Walt Disney World vacations through the years. There are different levels of recognition that start at bronze and go all the way up to platinum. Most agencies will advertise that they are part of this program on the home page of their website. If not, you can also reach out to someone at the company to ask if they are.

    The best part about using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is there is no additional cost to you for their help. You'll pay the same amount for your vacation as if you booked it yourself. These individuals are extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of your stay and will work directly with you to create a magical Disney vacation. They'll even be able to assist with airline reservations and travel to your resort. You'll be in great hands with their help!

    Taylor, I hope you have an amazing time during your stay! Stop back and see us anytime at planDisney!

    Happy planning!
