5. Don’t wait on hold with Disney…ever!

We are not going to drop names here…but we have all heard the nightmare stories of waiting on hold with large companies in the travel industry. We are constantly helping guests who were sick and tired of waiting on hold for 2-3 hours only to get disconnected. Here at The Park Prodigy we are a small business that has learned the ins and outs of dealing with the larger companies.

When you book your vacation package or Disney World tickets with a Disney travel agent we will deal with all of the customer service inquiries for you. It’s that simple!

6. Disney World Travel Agents Can Provide You With Detailed Park Plans


If you’ve never been to Walt Disney World, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which theme parks to visit. Using one of The Park Prodigy travel agents will allow you to receive a detailed park plan laying out all the need-to-know information.

We provide one-day plans for each Walt Disney World Park and even two-day plans for the larger Disney parks like The Magic Kingdom. With a detailed plan for each park, you will know exactly what to expect, where to explore, and won’t miss out on anything!

7. You Will Receive Dining Reservation Assistance From Your Disney Travel Agent

Whether you have or have not been to Walt Disney World, you may know how tedious and time-consuming it is to make your dining reservations. First, which restaurants do you want to eat at? Second, which restaurant has the characters you want to see? Third, do you want a Disney Dining plan?

With so many restaurants to choose from your Disney travel agent can help navigate you toward what will work best for your Disney trip. It may be a Disney Dining plan or just regular reservations.

8. You Will Receive Fastpass+ Assistance

Another place  Walt Disney World travel agents comes in handy is if you are unfamiliar with the Fastpass+ process. The Fastpass+ process can be confusing due to the different systems and processes for a few of the Disney World Parks. Your Disney travel agent will be able to guide you along through each park and when booking becomes available based on if you are staying on-site or off-site at Walt Disney World.


9. Your Disney Travel Agent Is Your One Point of Contact and Emergency Contact

When you use a Disney travel agent to book your Walt Disney World trip you get to work directly with just one person. Not having to work with someone for your resort, someone for your ticket reservations, and someone else for transportation.

Your Walt Disney World travel agent is your one-stop-shop for everything you will need before, during, and after your trip. Additionally, your travel agent is your on-call emergency contact should you need them during your trip and they can immediately begin to help with your emergency.

These seven benefits are just a few of many perks of working directly with one of The Park Prodigy Disney travel agents when planning your Walt Disney World trip. Whether it’s your first or fifth Disney trip, our free services, and quotes, ability to save you time and money, dining and Fastpass+ assistance, and having one point of contact/emergency contact will make your next Disney trip unforgettable!
