Going to Disney World or Disney Land can be a ton of fun. However, the trip itself can be extremely stressful to plan, especially if you are going with young children. You want to make sure that your kids have a great time, but you might worry about lines, the heat, how much money you are spending on the trip, and a million other things. If you have never been to Disney Land or Disney World before, you might feel completely overwhelmed. One way to deal with this is to hire a Disney travel agent, or someone that specializes in helping families plan trips to Disney. However, you might not want to add on this additional expense to what might already be a very expensive vacation. Here are some questions that you can ask yourself to determine if you need a Disney travel agent.
1. Are you planning on travelling on a shoestring budget?
The first thing that you need to look at is your budget. You might be travelling with four or five kids, as well as two adults, and you don't have a ton of money. If this is your situation, you are likely tempted to not go with a Disney travel agent. This is a mistake. When you are working with a very low budget, you don't have the luxury of messing up. Travel agents know how to stack deals and know when to recommend that you go on your trip to save the most money possible. If you are working with a small amount of money, it will likely be cheaper for you to go with a travel agent thanks to the deals that he or she will be able to to find that you would not have found yourself. If you go with an authorized travel agent, you might not even have to pay anything because Disney will be paying the agent a commission on your trip.
If you have a little bit more money, you do have the luxury of paying a bit more than you have to and therefore do not need to get a travel agent.
2. Are you worried about the trip being perfect?
The next thing that you need to do is consider how much of a perfectionist you are. If you need the trip to be perfect down to the last millimeter but also don't trust anyone else to do it, then don't use a travel agent. If you want the trip to be perfect but are willing to leave some of the details to someone else, go with a travel agent.
