I thought I had a good deal, but now I’m starting to wonder. Let me tell you what I have and you can tell me if I really have a good deal or whether I could get a better deal for a Disney Vacation. I have booked (for 2 adults) Nov. 13th – 18th @ Pop Century for 5 nights and 6 days of tickets with the park hopper and dining for $1441.58.
I do trust you!

Dad’s looks like it Answer
Just looking at your numbers, it looks like you got a good deal. The good thing about Disney World Vacations is the price you pay should be the same no matter where you buy you package. Disney doesn’t allow discounting on packages and the same items should cost the same wherever you buy them.
But … since you booked a package in November, you didn’t get a discount. That’s not the problem, the problem comes if Disney offers a discount next month (they should). Unless you see it and call Disney and make a change, you will pay too much. Disney will not notify you of potential savings on your package.
This is why (yes, Dad is beginning to sound like a broken record, but it’s important) Dad was so excited about introducing Dreams Come True Vacations. Having a dedicated, professional, Walt Disney World knowledgeable Travel Agent can really go a long way to putting your mind at ease. It can save you money.
I can’t think of a good reason not to use a Disney Travel Agent. I doesn’t cost anything. The good ones will help you with all of the details of your trip from making dining reservations to helping you design a daily plan.
But Dad, I like doing all of that myself. That’s fine. You still control your whole trip, but if there is a problem along the way, you’ve got an advocate to help (one that has a copy of records you might have misplaced or wouldn’t take with you on vacation).
Dad’s Bottom Line
Joyce, you did get a good deal. But, you’ll need to watch and see if Disney puts out any new discounts for November. If they do, you’ll have to call and get them to change them. (Unless you let Amanda and her crew at Destinations to Travel take care of you.)
PS – You’ll be there for the last day of the International Food and Wine Festival. It ends on November 13.
