We monitor sales that Disney releases. Between deposit and final payment, when sale is released by Disney, we check your reservation to see if it applies to your plans. If it does, we notify you that your vacation price just went down! If for some reason, your trip doesn’t qualify, we can discuss the option of making adjustments so you can take advantage of the sale! You can rest assured that we are looking for discounts, so you don’t have to!
Memory Maker is an incredible way to enjoy unlimited digital Disney PhotoPass photos captured at hundreds of locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort—including select attractions and dining locations. The photos are conveniently connected to your online Disney account with a touch of your MagicBand or card. You can easily view, download, and share your Disney PhotoPass memories on the My Disney Experience Mobile App. There’s no need to purchase each photo individually. You can simply enjoy your vacation knowing that your memories are being captured for you. Learn more about Memory Maker.
If you would like us to, absolutely! Dining reservations open at 6am via the MDE app or Disney website, 60 days in advance. Disney’s phone reservation system opens at 7am. Please reach out to your agent about 2 weeks before your dining window opens so that we can start planning out which days you want to visit which parks and create an itinerary that will be customized for your family. You can let us know what your family likes and dislikes as well as any dietary restrictions or special needs.
We will create a list of the restaurants you want on which days. We can make those reservations for you, or of course if you would rather do it yourself you certainly can.
We will just need your My Disney Experience login username and password to do them for you. You will also need to add a credit card to your profile in your My Disney Experience account. Disney will not charge you for the reservations, they use the card to secure the dining reservations. However, that card will be used if the cancellation policy is not met. Please check the cancellation policy for each reservation. If the dining reservation needs to be cancelled, but isn’t done at least one day in advance (at most dining locations), a $10 per person charge will be made to the card. Reservations can be cancelled at most locations up until 11:59 p.m. the day before the reservation to avoid the charge. To cancel dining reservations, you can call (407) WDW-CNCL, stop by any table service restaurant front desk, call (407) WDW-DINE, or simply use your My Disney Experience app.
While we will make every effort to secure your plans as if planning our own vacation, unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that your desired times and locations will be available. It’s best to provide 2nd choices to your agent.
The link below is a great place to check out the restaurants and menus! Of course, we are always happy to make recommendations that fit your family’s wishes.
A park ticket with the Park Hopper option gives guests the ability to visit more than one theme park during the same day. You can “hop” from one park to another. Guests with regular tickets can leave and revisit the same park in the same day, but cannot go to a different park that same day.
Yes, you can! There are several grocery delivery services that we recommend: Garden Grocer, Dizzy Dolphin Delivery, and Amazon Prime Now. Disney resorts will keep refrigerated items cold until you can pick them up. There is an additional delivery fee if bell services brings them directly to your room.
Honestly, book as far in advance as you can. Typically, cruise prices increase as sailing dates get closer. Occasionally Disney will offer specials for guaranteed staterooms – where you won’t be able to choose a specific stateroom, but you get a lower price for a particular category. Your stateroom will be assigned weeks before or up until you check in at the pier.
The other way to get the best price is to go on a Disney cruise and book while on board! If you are unsure of where and when you would want to cruise again, book a placeholder while you are on board and let your agent know when you are home.
A placeholder is exactly what it sounds like – it holds your place for a future cruise, even if you are unsure of when and where you want to cruise. For a small deposit, Disney Cruise Line lets you save a special discount and on board credit to apply to a future cruise. The deposit is fully refundable if you decide you don’t want to use it. It’s valid for 2 years and will be refunded automatically if you forget about it! If you book a placeholder, be sure to let your agent know when you come home.
Unless there is a special promotion, gratuities are not included in your cruise fare. It’s customary for passengers to tip their waiters, assistant waiters, stateroom attendants, etc. Most cruise lines will place your gratuities onto your on board account automatically. The set amount varies from cruise line to cruise line. It’s up to you if you want to tip above and beyond that. Crew members rely on tips as their main source of income, so when someone does something to make your cruise a better experience, it’s a kind gesture to offer an additional tip. Envelopes will be available at guest services and traditionally are given out to crew members on the last evening of your cruise.
