Hi, is there a diference if I book via Dreams Unlimited travel agent or if I do it myself. I know if you book your ctuise via DU they give you an OC and a gift.

I don't know if Dreams Unlimited gives any perks for booking with them but the biggest perk of using a Disney specialized TA is their wonderful service which is free of charge to you. They know the moment Disney promos are released, and on the phone the moment lines are open, getting you the best deal. Making payments is easy, just a quick email to the TA does it. Same with any questions, requests, or help with planning.
Also, if something goes wrong on arrival, and not getting help there, a quick text or call to your TA does wonders to straighten things out.
I remember a post about that awhile ago. Person had some problem, can't remember what now. CM or manager wasn't helping. She phoned her TA, who made some calls and had things straightened out in minutes.

If looking for a quote comparison, I would certainly give Dreams Unlimited a call since they're nice enough to host this wonderful forum.
have a great stay!

The biggest downside with using a travel agent (any agent) is that any changes must go through them. You can't just pick up the phone and call Disney; they won't respond.

Not sure how Dreams Unlimited TA does things for WDW reservations but my TA sends gifts with documents when folks book a package. Right now depending on how many in the party and ages of kids, she sends a small backpack soft sided cooler, stylus pen, autograph book/s (if there are kids), and a gift card. Also, a zipper pouch to put documents.

Gifts vary through out the year.

If you are interested in using Dreams Unlimited I would send them an email and see if they offer anything.
