"Disney Vacations" Night at AAA office - worth it?

Hi! I'm in the process of waiting for an email back from the AAA agent we've used, but it's been a few days (part of it weekend) and I'm impatient. I looked at the AAA site to see when our local office is open, and noticed that another office a little farther away has a "Disney Vacations" event in a few days. Has anyone been to one of these? Are there any perks for going? I wouldn't mind a little extra drive if there would be a better offer, but if it's the same stuff, I don't think they'd teach me much so it wouldn't be worth it.

We are so blessed! Trip to WDW in the 80s courtesy of Make-A-Wish, two trips in the 90s thanks to youth group and a band trip, then a trip in 2004 with DH - what started the trend. Another short trip in 2005, a trip to DisneyLand in 2008 with our DD1, another trip to WDW in 2008 with DD1, trip in 2010 with DD1 and DD2, and just another in February 2011 with DD1 and DD2. It's been amazing!

DH, me, and our two beautiful girls (5 and 3)

I had a water fun day planned
I tend to buy way too many t-shirts when I visit WDW

Our local AAA has Disney Daze in January. They serve a breakfast, it used to be a complete hot breakfast but last time was continental. They also give out door prizes, usually figurines, bags, nothing big but decent. They also have several agents there to book trips on the spot. There is usually a Disney artist doing sketches which are either door prizes or you get one when you make your final payment. There is usally some type of discoount, not sure if it is more than AAA's regular or not. It is a nice way to spend a Saturday morning. No real pressure to book that I know of but then I only go if I am ready to book.

I think all AAA sights do it a little differently. I would say....GO! If only for a fun afternoon that will get you really in the mood for your disney trip. My thought is that there will different "disney" agents there (than your closer AAA office). And they may have interesting ideas, plans, "secrets" to offer you that you might not get from your people. When ever we go to disney, I always do a ton of research. I will talk to anyone who might have something to offer. I have gotten some really GREAT ideas from the most unlikely sources. Some real money saving ideas.

Go have fun!
