So I have never used a travel agent in my life. I tend to scour the internet and find the best prices for myself. I want to book a December 2014 cruise and have read for that time I want to call a travel agent so they can get me on the wait list. Small World Vacations was suggested to me.... again no idea. So I guess my questions is what is the benefit to a travel agent? How do the prices compare to booking yourself through Disney once the cruise goes on sale? Do you pay the travel agent to book your cruise or do they get kick backs from the cruise line? I am just lost. Any info would be great. - Also we are a Military family and never knows what is going to happen with my husbands vacation time. So having the option with Disney to cancel 75 days out and getting our full amount back is very important to us. - Does this apply with travel agents as well?
