Top 5 Reasons to Use a Travel Advisor

Why use a travel advisor?

Yes, we’ve heard it all and we know it is possible to book your own travel. Consider this – how much time and effort does it take to put together an amazing vacation?!

Many people end up not taking (a much needed and well-deserved) vacation because they simply do not have the extra time to plan one. Especially in this post-pandemic world, planning a trip can be confusing, time-consuming, and quite a hassle.

That is where our travel advisors come in! Our teams arrange transportation, provide early booking discounts, special fares, hotel deals. Plus, they guide you through the complexities of travel advisories.

Let our advisors ease any uncertainty you may have with up-to-the-minute information and expert advice.  It is all in a day’s work in the exciting world of travel planning and building relationships!

Here are the top five reasons you should plan your next vacation with a travel advisor!

Save time!

Sure – of course you can book your own travel. Just like you can go to the store to shop. In all honestly – it’s incredibly time consuming. Shopping the best deals, researching resorts, adjusting flights, checking COVID protocols – it takes a lot of time and energy. Make the call so we can take on the confusion and stress of planning. The last thing you want to think about is whether you have a transfer included or arranged or if your lost luggage is covered.  You can sit back and enjoy a memorable experience. Let us sweat the details while you do nothing but relax!

Save money!

When most people think of using a travel advisor their first thought may not be of saving money, but this is often the case. Our vacation professionals have cultivated strong relationships and premium partnerships with countless travel suppliers giving them access to a network of lower pricing and exclusive travel packages.

Disney Planning Q&A with Chelsea from the Fox Dream Team

If there’s one thing we know well, it’s that when it comes to planning a Disney vacation, it may not seem like the easiest task. This is where our Dream Team comes in! We have the expertise to make your Disney vacation planning a breeze, all while keeping the magic in your heart. Dream team member, Chelsea, is answering 5 of the most frequently asked questions below.

 

Q: What exactly is Disney Genie and when traveling with a number of people, does the app give the same information across the board for those who are traveling in your group?

A: When you select the interests for the group you are traveling with, the recommendations that the app will give you is based off the initial interests you selected. The app is simply giving you recommendations, not everyone likes the same things, and that is a-okay. You can be logged onto the account on different devices at the same time. If the group wants to split up while in the park, you can do so and use the Genie recommendation list accordingly.

 

Q: When visiting Disney with little ones, are there lockers to rent at the parks? Are strollers available for rent?

A: Yes! There are a limited amount of lockers at the front of each of the parks. Please note, these normally fill up quick in the early morning since space is limited. CLICK HERE to find exact measurements and pricing for the lockers currently available. Strollers are available to rent within the parks as well. The amount of strollers available are limited and usually rent out fast. Your travel advisor can help you with a stroller rental from a 3rd-party vendor that can drop off the stroller at your resort and pick it back up when you depart. Learn more about stroller rental at Disney HERE.

 

Q: Say I book my accommodations myself off Disney property, do you still assist in booking our Park tickets?

A: Yes! We can book tickets separately for you if you wish; however, to make your vacation seamless, we have multiple vendors that we can utilize to assist you with all of your vacation planning. No need is too big or too small when it comes to the Dream Team. If you were to purchase parts of your package separately, we would be unable to assist if any problems were to arise. Vendors will not relay your personal booking information if we are not your booking agent.

 

Q: Are there park accommodations for disabled visitors?

A: If you need assistance within the parks, my biggest recommendation would be for you to work directly with Disney employees known as “cast members” within each Disney Park because Disney has a policy in place regarding qualifications for their Disability Access Service. I recommend viewing THIS WEBSITE in depth to see current rules, regulations, and qualifications.

 

Q: What are some of the top attractions/things to do at Disney Springs?

A: There are many things to see and do in Disney Springs! Not only is this a great hub to go to for food and shopping, there are also shows, activities and entertainment available.
