    Hi there! Is there someone I can connect with that can help me plan my entire Disney World vacation including handling the purchase of tickets? Thanks!

    Hey Howdy Hey Matthew and welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you are very close to booking your Magical vacation for next year, how exciting! Thank you for stopping by with your question about planning your trip. I will be happy to give you a little more insight and recommendations on where to start! 

    When it comes to booking a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, you have essentially 2 options. You can do it all yourself or you can partner up with a travel agent to help you through this process. 

    Booking your vacation yourself can be a daunting task as there is a lot to do, see and experience when talking about a vacation to Walt Disney World. On the Walt Disney World Resort website, Disney does have a dedicated Vacation Planning page which is a good resource for where to start making your reservations for your vacation. This site is super helpful but still is a self-guided process. If you wanted to partner up with someone that can give you the insider's guide to planning a trip to Walt Disney World, you might want to consider a travel agent. 

    When selecting a travel agent, there are some helpful things to look out for. Doing a quick internet search, you can look for "Authorized Disney Vacation Planners" and you should find many that come up. When browsing through your options, you should also see various designations Disney officially hands out to these agencies with an official EARmark. This just gives customers a little more insight into the expertise and frequency each agency has recognized through Disney when helping Guest plan their trips. These distinctions are essentially color coded such as bronze, gold and diamond to show Guests the level of experience and frequency by which they plan vacations. 

    One of the best parts about partnering up with an authorized Disney vacation planner is that their services are FREE! You should not see any extra charges from these agencies for booking a vacation to Walt Disney World. All of these agents have to go through extensive training with Disney as well to be the ultimate planning expert. Rest assured that working with one of these agents you have all the fun planning while they do the heavy lifting of making your dream vacation come true! 

    I hope these options helped decide which way to go in planning your trip in the spring of 2023. Please feel free to keep your newfound 'Ohana here at planDisney close if you have any further questions, we are always happy to help!

    Happy Planning,
