Hey MW, hope all is well. I have a couple questions. Has anyone used travel agent to book their WDW trip? The past two I have planned I used the disney website, I didn't know if you get better deals through travel agent or better to use Disney website again. Trip is still two years away but wanting to get opinions or info to talk it over with my sister in law. The other thing is we are wanting to make some of our own matching shirts to wear and I was wondering if those of you who have made shirts would mind sharing pics of shirts so I can show sister in law and we can get ideas? You can email pics to [email protected] if you are willing to share your creativity with us. Thanks in advance me family!

I had a friend book theirs through an agent, their whole trip including tickets, stay at all star music, dining plan and air from kc was $3000. And that is for this April, I thought that wad pretty good. Oh there are 2 adults and 1 kid. - ccmom  187.5 #49 9:07AM
I've heard that Costco always has a good deal for Disney trip. Might try them next time myself. - dadwholovesdisney  68.3 #94 10:22AM
I was a travel agent and Disney destination specialist. I booked the same package for my clients that you can book on the Disney website. There are other companies that offer WDW packages, so shop around. Also, don't assume that a package is always cheaper than each item separately. Price things out both ways. Good luck! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #6 10:28AM
With Disney even if you don't have a special now if you learn of one closer to your time they will apply it. No sure you can do that with a travel agent. - 5disneylovers  1271.6 #9 11:39AM
The past few years I have used Disney because I have the annual pass and sometimes that room discount is better than anything out there unless you get free dinning for your family. I always check a couple different options and make a choice after my homework. And like CDKG said a package is not always cheaper ( can be mor convenient) so check around it may be worth it - mmddgp  1853.9 #2 12:23PM
We have Always gone through an agent but this yr it was so much cheaper to book our airfares online and directly with the airline and with accommodation and passes through the disney website. Other sites and travel agents couldn't get us a better deal even through their wholesaler, so shop around, do your research and get the best deal - bubbaschoice  57.8 #104 1:21PM
I've been twice and both times used the Disney website. Before the 2nd trip we went to AAA to get those prices and even with more people it was cheaper to go through the Disney website and book out own airfare through southwest. If you have time just shop around and see - brodysmommy  476.5 #510 3:07PM
We find it cheaper to go through Disney. One yr we went through AAA and it was horrible!! We almost did not receive our tickets and they messed up our flight info. By the time everything was said and done we had to pay $500 more then if we booked it through Disney. - Schramke  741.5 #13 3:30PM
I just emailed u pics of the shirts I made. Let me know if u have questions or want to see pics of us wearing them to get a better idea of how they look :) - mzdisnee  574.3 #15 3:41PM
Oh and about the travel agent, we booked our trip in may through Southwest. When I was getting my airline tickets it asked if I wanted a hotel. They had Pop Century avaliable when the WDW website did not and it was cheaper then the price Disney was offering for the All Star Hotels. Always be on the lookout for other options. - mzdisnee  574.3 #15 3:43PM
Awesome! Thanks for the email and the info. - txdisneymomma  161.6 #59 4:48PM
Thank you all for the tips! We are wanting to stay at AoA when we go but I looked at the map and the standard rooms seem so far from everything and my sister in law wanted a suite for them and I don't think they have suited and standard rooms in same building. So now I'm not sure about it. - txdisneymomma  161.6 #59 4:51PM
i go to disney every other year. I notice it is cheaper to book your flight through either the airline directly or priceline negotiator if you dont mind varied flight times. them i book the hotel room through disney since i like to stay on the property and either use AAA or other discounts for the room and can save upwards of 40% per night. i dont do the disney dining package since i dont like it. I think its better to have food delivered from wegoshops or gardengrocer and have special dinners since u save a lot on drinks and lunch that way. lastly on tickets i like to use my friends military tickets since they are very economical and he can give me up to 8 a year. a good example of cost is in 2011 i went for 9 days ti disney world for 1200 to include flight, hotel, 4 day fun and more tickets for 2 people. food was another 300. have a great time planning your trip as it can be so much fun - athica  12.9 #223 6:14AM
Oh wow you sound like a pro. Lol. How does your military friend get u tickets? My husbands brother is military but not the side of the family that is going with us. - txdisneymomma  161.6 #59 7:22AM

I thought it was just me. Lol. Someone needs to hit the refresh button. :) - DeadliestPassholder  448.4 #554 2:10PM
It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11772.1 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10876.5 #11 9:55PM
