For those of you that have stayed at a WDW resort, did you call the resort itself or did you book through a travel site? I'm planning my vacation to WDW and I'm trying to get the best deal I can. Thank you for any input.
I've done both ... direct with Disney, and with a Disney travel agent. I think it depends how much time you have to keep an eye out for Disney special offers, etc. One year I was just way too busy, and our agent did it all!! But I'm a bit of a control freak, that I still had my hand in it still. But, I do prefer to do it myself, and book through Disney. Just depends how busy you are, I think! :) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #70 4:21PM
We always done it through Disney, but this year we used The Magic for Less travel agency and we've never been happier. They take care of everything for you to the point. ✨ - LinaBelle  31.8 #120 5:36PM
I always book thru Disney. :) - mrsincredible  768.8 #6 2:14PM
No no no travel agents...book thru disney - mickeynme  150.9 #50 2:18PM
I have done it through Disney travel and AAA - mmddgp  374.6 #18 2:20PM
We always book threw Disney! - disneycm  530.4 #10 2:21PM
If you are flexible as to when you go try and go during valu times especially if you are traveling on a budget - mmddgp  374.6 #18 2:23PM
I always go through Disney. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #17 2:31PM
We use Disney , but we are dvc so we have to :) - tracsant  912.1 #2 2:43PM
Booking directly with Disney on their website seems the best, but you can also go with a Disney travel agent and they can help inform you of the current specials (free dining or % off room) and do everything for you with no fee. You will find the same deals whoever you use and if a better rate comes up Disney will adjust your package up to a month or two before your trip. Happy planning! - Andrea84  625.8 #7 2:52PM
Booked thru Disney. The best way - tomevans13  249.8 #27 3:05PM
Ditto..... :) Disney all the way!!! - MommyMouseof2  25.0 #132 3:14PM
Thanks everyone! :) - misseeyore  538.0 #314 3:55PM
Disney. - 5disneylovers  773.9 #5 3:57PM
I've booked through Expedia and through Disney. I generally start the airfare research once I get home from a WDW trip. Keeps me thinking positive & excited about my next trip. - Tinkerbell1265  441.1 #13 7:18PM
I've always booked my Disney hotels direct through Disney. Sometimes I book the hotel alone, other times as a package. Unless Disney is offering a promotional rate on their packages, it's usually less expensive to book the hotel separately. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  801.0 #3 9:32PM
