The question has been brought up to me lots and lots of times through my years as a Disney Specializing Travel Agent: With everything available online, why would I need a travel agent? And, to be honest, I can completely understand that question and why it would be asked when we live in a world where infinite information is available right at your fingertips. But there are some things you just can’t get online. One of the biggest of those is experience. Truly, it’s very hard to plan something as entailed as a Disney vacation without experience. The basics may be there, but all the details that can and will make your vacation truly magical will be lacking. Do you remember that old book with the line in it that goes, ‘lions and tigers and bears, oh my!’? Well in the world of Disney vacation planning, it’s more like, ‘dining and magic bands and fastpasses, oh my!’. And that’s only the tip of the Disney iceberg!
When you make the decision to get the help of a travel agent who works for Our Laughing Place Travel (OLPT is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner), you are getting the best and most knowledgeable folks available. We go through special training through Disney and keep up to date on all the things that are happening throughout the theme parks, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney, and Aulani, a Disney resort and spa. We have many, many years of combined experience, too. And best of all, our services are absolutely FREE to all of our clients who book their vacations with us!
With all of that said, you may want to know what we actually do. Well the list is extensive and varies by the needs of each client. We don’t fit anyone into a cookie cutter style mold and address everyone’s needs as is specific to them. We start with the basics of helping you choose the resort that is best for you, then can go from there to create a package that can include dining and park passes to customize your vacation just for YOU. But we don’t stop there! Once the reservation is secured, we are at your service to help you with itinerary planning, dining reservations (yes, you will definitely need reservations for a big percentage of dining locations throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland), Fastpass+ selections, magic band selection, setting up Disney’s Magical Express service, planning other activities to enjoy during your visit (Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Pirate’s League, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, etc) answering any and all of your questions, and pretty much anything else you can think of. Plus, we keep an eye on Disney discounts and do our very best to ensure you get the best rates available. We’re here to share in your excitement as you plan and to ensure that you have the most amazing vacation possible. Plus, if you should have a question or concern while you’re on vacation, we’re STILL here to help. It’s all a part of what we do and we absolutely LOVE our jobs.
