Using an agent vs. self-booking

Should you book your Disney vacation yourself or with a travel planner?

A very common misconception is that as an “outside” agency booking Disney vacations there is an “upcharge” for our services. This, however, couldn’t be further from the truth! As You Wish Vacations agents are paid directly by Disney to help you plan your Disney vacation. Our services are completely FREE to you – clients pay the exact same amount with us as if they booked directly through Disney! Here are some of the major differences in booking your Disney vacation with a travel agent versus doing it on your own.

When you book your Disney World vacation by yourself directly with Disney:

• You have to do all your own research
• You are responsible for finding out about any special offers and call to have them applied to your package
• You have to call to make any changes to your reservation
• You talk to someone different every time you call
• You have to make your own dining reservations, which sometimes requires you being on the phone by 7am to get those hard-to-get advanced dining reservations when your 180-day window opens

When you book with an As You Wish Vacations agent, we take care of everything for you!

• You have one agent you work with from booking to completion of your vacation! You get to know us and we get to know you, therefore forming relationships with your family to likely extend for many trips to come.
• We monitor and then automatically call and apply any applicable special offers to your reservation after you book with us and then let you know how much money you saved on your Disney vacation!
• We can set up a payment plan that’s most convenient for you! And remember, you only need $200.00 for a deposit to book your package!
• We can make your dining reservations for you! You tell us what you want and we’ll handle it.
• Let us call for you so you don’t have to wait on hold for sometimes hours to make any sort of change or request to your package.
• Whether you are looking for advice on where to eat, what special events may be going on during your vacation or are wondering what the weather or crowds will be like, we are here to answer all of your questions to help make your vacation wishes come true!
