Where should I buy tickets or packages?

I know you can get your tickets through many different travel agents, but are there any other places where you would recommend me purchasing my tickets or packages from? Or is it best to just book thru Disney?

Except for AAA or a special promo a travel agency might be doing (like a free gift certificate, bag or hat) the prices of packages are the same thru Disney and authorized TA's. There are some shady charecters out there that are TA's that might add on some fees and charges. The advantage of going thru a TA (for some) is that they will do a little leg work for you, making calls and reservations.

The prices will be the same.

I always book thru Disney directly to cut out the middleman and so I can have direct control over all my dining reservations and such.

If you want the dining plan you need to get a package.

If you go through a TA they have "control" of your reservation, and any changes until when you actually check-in must go through the TA.
