Why use a Travel Agent?

Here are just  a few of the reasons that it pays to have a Travel Agent on your side:

  • Financial savings! They can usually help you find the best deals and/or help you stay within in or even sometimes under your budget!
  • Time savings! Instead of you have to do all of the searching and digging they do it for you!
  • During trip Assistance– if something should come up during or even before your travel your agent is there to help ease some of the pain and help where they can.
  • It doesn’t cost you any extra for their services! That is correct! A travel agents business is FREE to you when you book your travel through them.

And here are just a few reasons you should use an Marvelous Mouse Travels Agent:

  • Team work!¬†If I am not sure about something I have a whole team standing behind me to help figure it out for YOU!
  • Onsite training-¬†at MMT we are continually working on doing onsite trainings together. Just this year we did a Disney Cruise as a company. We truly learn so much together doing this for our clients!
  • NO RUMORS or FALSE ADVERTISMENTS!¬†We are always up front, honest and looking out for the best interest of our clients.
  • FUN!¬†We want to make sure that your vacations are as much fun as they are budget friendly and organized!!
  • THANKFUL!¬†We are all truly blessed to do what we do and show it in our work ethic.

Life online

I know that blogging is going to help me boost my business and maybe even inspire someone, maybe ;), but why is it so stinking hard to get going?!

My mission is to schedule at least one post a week. Mostly Disney/Pinterest related like the title of the blog states! But probably some random things as well. Keep it interesting for me and others who may be interested.

I’ll stop boring you and get onto planning.

Thanks to those who take time out of their days/nights to check my blog out. I’m sorry it’s been so lame so far. ūüė¶ I promise to try and do better.

TTFN!! ūüôā

My Top Ten Tips for a Magical Disney World Vacation

Walt Disney World ‚Äď The Happiest Place on Earth‚Ķ.. Isn‚Äôt it?

It can be! It can also be overwhelming with 4 parks, 2 water parks, 22 resorts, 4 golf courses, 2 miniature golf courses, sports complexes, shopping areas, over 100restaurants, and endless activities. Here are some of my top tips from of experience that will help you plan a magical vacation!

1. Use a FREE Authorized Disney Travel Planner ‚Äď All Authorized Disney Travels¬†agents have completed the College of Disney Knowledge. Working with an agent you¬†will have an expert at helping you customize a vacation to meet your families needs and¬†budget. The agent can suggest itineraries, make meal reservations, and keep up with¬†special promotions that can save you money.

2. Know When to Go ‚Äď Choosing when to visit can have the biggest impact on your¬†trip. Walt Disney World can be a crowded place, and the time of year you visit can have¬†a dramatic impact on crowds. ¬†Typically September to mid-November and January to¬†mid-February are the least crowded months. Early December is another great time to¬†visit. The weather is great and the holiday festivities are magical!¬†When schools are on¬†breaks WDW is more crowded and expensive! And of your course, your agent can¬†assist you in choosing the best time to visit, too!

3. Stay at a Disney World Resort ‚Äď Immerse yourself in the magic. WDW has a resort¬†for every budget and the accommodations are part of the experience. Guests enjoy¬†complimentary transportation from the airport, free parking at all resorts and parks, free¬†transportation to all resorts and parks, use of extra magic hours, and the option of using¬†the Disney Dining Plan.

4. Include the Disney Dining Plan- Use of the dining plan essentially turns your trip into an all inclusive vacation. The dining plan is a convenient way to eat around the World. Ask your agent about the different options and all of the benefits of adding the Disney Dining Plan on to your package.

5. Make Dining Reservations in Advance- Reservations can be made 180 days in advance and many locations book up fast! You don’t want to be wandering around looking for a place to eat. Not sure where to eat? Ask your agent for their recommendations.

6. Plan a Day to Relax РDisney World can be exhausting. Plan an off day in the middle of your vacation, your family will have a chance to relax and recharge. Sleep in and spend the day at your resort pool or explore Downtown Disney.

7. Be Realistic ‚Äď You cannot see it all, don‚Äôt be miserable trying! Remember you are on¬†vacation. ¬†Be flexible and take it all in stride! If you miss something, use it as an excuse¬†to plan another magical trip!

8. Don’t Break the Bank Purchasing Souvenirs РSet a limit for the kids before you go. Purchase a gift card for each child and encourage them to choose what they spend their money on wisely!

9. Arrive Early¬†– The best way to experience the parks without waiting in lines and¬†maneuvering through crowds is to arrive early. ¬†The lines will grow long a couple of¬†hours later and you will have already hit all of your ‚Äúmust dos‚ÄĚ.

10. Don‚Äôt Spend your Vacation Waiting in Line¬†– Arrive at the parks early and utilize¬†the fast pass system to eliminate waits. Decide before you arrive which attractions are¬†‚Äúmust dos‚ÄĚ and hit those first. ¬†If you have small children use parent swap. ¬†The first¬†riders must wait in line. ¬†When they are finished, the parent who had to wait with the¬†child goes through the fast pass line. Take advantage of the new FastPass+ system so¬†that you can use it to add magic to your vacation.

Marvelous Mouse Travels Onsite Training: Day 1

night one crew

Look at this crew!

This was a jam packed, fun and educational experience that I’m so glad I got to be part of.

We started the first night by meeting at the Hoop Dee Doo Revue for a great show and very tasty dinner and dessert!

(By the way- most of us have never met each other! We came from all over the country.)

HDDR is a 2 credit Table Service

Ok! I am drooling just thinking about how tasty and fresh this

Strawberry Short Cake was and how yummy that Sangria

sitting in the background was.

(The Sangria actually comes with the meal- it does not cost extra!)

I have already graduated from the Disney’s College of Knowledge.

(Oh, that reminds me I need to order my graduation kit!)

And I can’t wait to start helping people and families make their magical and memorable vacations and trips!

Along with posting about Disney travel and other great travel destinations, I will be posting on here about my addiction to Pinterest and what curious things I may find and maybe even attempt to try.

Basically this is like my personal journal that I want to share with those who might be interested.

Here we go…… ūüėČ
