Today, I thought I would talk a little bit about the services I offer when you book a Disney Vacation Package with me. Additionally, I will give a little background as to how I got into this business of booking Disney vacations. It's important to build relationships with people that could become potential clients. That's all of you! I want each of you to know why I do this and more importantly, that you can trust me to handle your vacation as I would handle my own. That's not to say that I will be controlling your vacation and "doing" your vacation the way I do mine. Ultimately, you, my client, will be taking this trip and you know what is best for you!
How did I get into this? I have always loved to travel and loved the details that go into putting a vacation together. In fact, to me, the planning is half the fun. I especially feel this way about planning Disney vacations. I compare it to planning for a wedding. You spend a year or sometimes more thinking about and planning every last detail. You save and spend a lot of money! Then the day arrives and it's everything you hoped it would be and then it is over (insert sad face). That's how planning my own Disney vacations was for me. I felt euphoric and giddy when planning and had the most wonderful time once there but then it was over and I felt...depressed? bummed? let down? So, this summer I started to think about how much I loved the planning portion of Disney and decided to start researching Disney travel planning as a career. After researching many agencies, I found Ears of Experience, LLC and decided it would be the perfect fit for me. Now, here I am. It is a lot of hard work to get a business going but I love the challenge and I know I'm doing what I should be doing.
Now you know how I got here and why I chose to do this. You now need to know why you should use an Ears of Experience Disney Travel Planner and more specifically, me! The info graph on the left that I created outlines reasons for using an agent. I will list the points below as I'm not so sure how easy the graph is to read in this blog post.
First, Ears of Experience pricing is always equal to or less than booking through the Disney Travel Company. While Disney agents are great to work with, they do not price watch for you or automatically adjust your pricing when a promotion comes out. Ears of Experience does that for you!
Second, you will save time! Sometimes you can wait a long time to speak with an agent. This holds especially true if you are trying to call during a special promotion that Disney is offering. Do you know who does the holding when you book with an Ears of Experience agent? Me! Also, an Ears' agent will save you time in the parks because we put together an itinerary customized to your needs and offer great park tips that will keep you waiting in less lines and visiting more attractions!
Thirdly, we help to keep your vacation planning stress free. We are experts at planning and coordinating and we are the "mouse experts." This equals a more enjoyable vacation for you and your family.
We can help make your vacation extra magical! Ears of Experience agents can find you the perfect hotel, get you the best Fast Pass+ reservations, and help to find and reserve those all important character dining experiences. You tell us what you want and we will do our very best to get it for you!
Finally, we can help you protect the trip that you have worked so hard for. Travel insurance can be confusing. Our agents can help find the best protection for your travel!
I know using a travel planner is not for every Disney traveler. Like me, some of you are Disney fans and planning is half the excitement! Go for it! I understand! However, I know there are people out there (because they have told me) that avoid taking a Disney vacation because it is just too overwhelming to even plan. Maybe you are a stay at home mom trying to keep your head above water the way it is. You would love to plan a Disney vacation but, who has time for that? Maybe you and your significant other both work and then come home in the evening to take care of the kiddos. By the time everyone is fed, bathed, and put to bed...you are ready to crash yourself! Grandparents love the idea of taking their entire family to Disney but that's a lot of work! Don't worry! I got this! Let me help you and I promise you will have the most magical and memorable Disney vacation you could ask for. Ears of Experience agents are "the plan behind the magic."
