    I am not sure if this is the right place to post this so please move it if not.

    I was wondering what makes a travel agency an earmarked agency. I am looking to book but the agent I am using is not an earmarked agent? I understand that is something special with Disney but what is it that the earmarked agencys had to do to get it?

    Hi, for an agency to be considered an Earmarked agency they must sell a certain amount of Disney travel. Also, everything must be booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company. The agency's reputation selling Disney travel is also taken into consideration. Personally, my first choice is to book with an agency that is Earmarked. Hope that answers your question!

    Most agents working for an "earmarked" agency are certified Disney travel agents who have completed Disney's College of Knowledge program.

    - sales revenue levels, possibly over more than 1 year of sales at those levels
    - at least 50% of front-line agents are College of Disney Knowledge graduates
    - dedication to promoting and selling the Disney travel product
