“Our family has always wanted to go to Disney World, but we’ve heard it’s very expensive! Can you help us make Disney affordable for our family?”
The answer to this question is YES! I have been helping families make dreams come true for years, and at a very affordable price.
There are many ways to save money at Disney World. I would recommend that the first step is to set a budget. As with anything in life, you can spend a ridiculous amount of money at Disney World (or any Disney destination). I think being reasonable about a budget is No. 1.
Secondly, I would look at the times of year that are possible for you to travel, and then consult on what times of year are most affordable. Disney has different “seasons” that cost differently. Lastly, let an expert help you! When I speak to clients, I know where money should be spent, and where we can save. It just all depends on what kind of trip you are looking for, and what areas you are willing to be more budget-conscious.
There are many different ways to save money (dining plan, memory maker, levels of resorts, types of tickets, etc.). But all of these things should be consulted upon with a trained professional (such as me!). Disney offers wonderful discounts throughout the year. However, those discounts have a max amount of usages. The max also depends on what resort, what days, and what time of the year you are traveling. Also, some of the BEST discounts (free dining) run out in a matter of hours. So, to have a travel agent seeking out those discounts for you, is a no-brainer. Overall, if going to Disney is a dream of your family, with some consulting and budgeting, it can happen!
“I don’t know anything about Disney World, where do I go first?”
I recently was just asked this exact question. My response is, ME! I would highly recommend letting a trained professional travel agent who specializes in Disney travel help you plan your dream vacation. Most travel agents who specialize in Disney travel have loads of training, expertise, and experience in planning Disney vacations. Here are some reasons to use a travel agent who specializes in Disney travel:
- It’s FREE! True Story! The same booking portal that Disney uses is the same one I do. There are no hidden costs
- Tailored Trip Consultation
- Personalized Payment Plans
- Custom-made Itinerary Planning
- Promotion and Discount Monitoring (If a promotion comes out after you have booked, I will take care of making sure the promotion is added to your existing reservation, if applicable.)

- FastPass+ Reservations (made 60 days in advance of your arrival – thus ensuring you receive exactly the rides you want … Even the popular The Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train, Frozen Ever After, and Pandora!)

“My family just isn’t a “Disney” family. Can you help with any other travel services?”
Yes! While I specialize in Disney, I am a licensed travel agent, so I can book just about anything. However, Disney also offers many other excursions around the USA and the world that don’t involve princesses or mice. Disney Cruise Ships are a great way to get away and see the world, and Adventures by Disney are tailored adventure trips around the globe. There is also a Disney resort in Hawaii, Aulani, that does not resemble a Disney Theme Park. It’s beautiful, relaxing, and very romantic. It is perfect for a Honeymoon or Anniversary destination.
Overall, if you want to book a vacation for family, I can certainly help with ANY destination. (Disney just happens to be my favorite!)
