    Hello, I am a travel agent who does not book Disney very much! What is the benefit to booking Disney World packages as opposed to booking hotel and park passes separately? My clients want to stay a the Walt Disney World Swan in February

    Hi there, Sandi!

    Welcome to planDisney, where experienced Disney-loving Guests help other Guests plan visits to Disney Destinations. We're glad you've stopped by with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! We always appreciate the opportunity to help spread pixie dust to other Guests visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. Sandi, I'd be happy to help you understand the advantages of booking a vacation package with the Walt Disney Travel Company.

    A vacation package consists of a Disney Resort hotel reservation and theme park tickets. As a bonus, when Guests book vacation packages directly with the Walt Disney Travel Company, they'll also receive Magical Extras! This means that they'll receive exclusive discounts on dining and merchandise at participating locations, as well as vouchers valid for a round of miniature golf on property and general admission to the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Another benefit to booking trips as vacation packages is the ability to make payments over time. When booking vacation packages, Guests pay a $200 deposit (subject to change) at the time of booking, and the remaining balance is due one month before their scheduled arrival date.

    The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is a beautiful Deluxe Resort located in the EPCOT Resorts area. It's a very popular choice for adult Guests, solo travelers, and Guests participating in runDisney race weekends due to its proximity to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios! While the resort is located on Walt Disney World Resort property, it's not one of the Resort hotels included in the Disney Resorts Collection and therefore does not offer Guests the ease and convenience of Walt Disney World's complimentary Resort transportation. For that reason, I might suggest that your clients consider a stay at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts or Disney's BoardWalk Inn.

    Sandi, I hope you've found this information helpful. If you have any additional vacation planning questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out to planDisney again! We're here to help Guests create special memories in The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    See ya real soon,
