I was going to use a "regular" TA to book an upcoming Disney trip, but she definitely doesn't seem to know what I am talking about when I mention the dining plan or park hopper passes. It's like we are speaking different languages. I have used Small World Vacations in the past. Any other recommendations? I want to make sure that we have a good agent who knows about any discounts and will not make mistakes with the booking. There will be at least 7 people split among at least 2 Disney resorts for between 6 and 10 days, and I think it would be easier for us all to go through the same (competent!) agent. By the way, I was pleased with the services of Small World Vacations, just wanted to hear feedback on them and others. Also, the search function seems to be not working for me, or I'm sure I could have found plenty of information with a search.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if I can post, but I know a GREAT TA who is a Disney Specialist. You can PM me for her info if you want.

Dreams Unlimited, who hosts this site are Disney Specialist. They keep checks on discounts and ect..

Several people use them for their trips. I've used them twice and found them to be very helpful, and even help with your ADRs.

I used small world for my first trip, I wont be using any TA's from this point forward. I've done enough research and know how to play the game well enough even only going twice, that I dont feel the need of a TA anymore.

We're currently booking 2 trips with the Magic for Less...they will also research and apply discounts like Dreams Unlimited. We contacted DU and MFL before deciding on MFL.....I love the travel agent I'm working with!!!

This is the first time I am using an online agent and I HIGHLY recommend Dreams Unlimited! They have been AWESOME in getting me exactly what I want when I want it.

I have used Dreams Unlimited for 3 trips now and I love it. They have found discounts, book our adrs and tours and once when there was an issue with an ADR that I made, my agent (Sue Ellen) was able to fix it in no time where as Disney wouldn't do anything for me.

What is the difference between Small World and Dreams Unlimited? I have been thinking about using small world because it is free....Is dreams unlimited free? Is one better than the other?

Dreams Unlimited does not charge you for their services. The only thing you pay is the actual cost of the trip to Disney itself. Check out their info and FAQ on their website...it explains everything you need to know.

weve used ************ Travel and use the nicest lady Joyce she is absolutely the best she goes that extra mile and does not cost extra either their direct number is 1 866-972-6244 and her ext is 702 you can use any one but Joyce is absolutely the best wonderful personality and she wants you to have the best vacation ever if a discount or something comes available she is on it we got free dining last sept and this came out after we booked and she called me to tell me weeks before that she heard a rumor that they might be offering it and sure enough she got it for us, someone in our party that was staying at a different resort that was not offering the same she switched to a different resort so that they also got free dining, we booked the bouceback program that they offered last year but my son and his girlfriend and 2 of their friends are going and Joyce is helping them, Good Luck in your hunt for the right TA :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes

I used small world, specifically Cissy, and she was wonderful. I communicate to her through the phone, and e-mails. She is very prompt in getting back to me if I request her to call. I e-mailed her all of my adr's & she got every one of them, almost right down to the exact time I requested. She has two small girls like I do, and she could relate to what I was looking for.
I have been an obsessive planner....and usually like to do things myself, but I'm glad I went through her. Hope this helps someone :goodvibes

We used MouseEarVacations.com (******************************/) They to have disney experts. Our disney expert has helped us in every way. You can call your agent just about anytime and when you email your agent they normal respond in a hour or esle. I have never use a travel agent but I'm glad I did and I don't think I will ever go a vaction again without one. We are going in early oct and she will be making all my plans coiming in april when the park hours are up. It is a free service and they do everything all you have to tell is how,when and where and she does the rest. If you have any question on who i used or anything at all PM me

One more thing she sent me all the bourchers and the passport book with all disney info and it also had a 10 day planner that you fill in so you know where you are going and what you are doing each day. That was free. I know that passport book she sent in almost twenty dollars.

I have used The Magic For Less Travel (TMFL) and cannot recommend them highly enough. They will search out discounts and help you save $$, and do this even after you are booked. The agents make helpful suggestions, will book your dining for you...all around Disney experts.
