I have heard that AAA has good rates for Disney Cruises...anyone else have any comment or know if this is a substantial savings from dealing with Disney direct???? Thanks in advance!

compared prices so far with AAA, Costco, Disney, and a few travel agents today and AAA seemed to be the lowest. Does anyone know, if the rate goes down after you book, is it retroactive and do you get the bargain??? thanks a lot.

Hello,

Check with a travel consultant who is a Disney travel specialist.

Disney is different from other cruise lines because they use a tiered-booking system and the lowest prices are offered first. The Disney ships almost always sail full, so it is almost unheard of for Disney to offer last-minute savings on their cruises. People book their cruises as soon as the sailings and reservations open, which is about 18 months in advance.

Booking direct or with a call center doesn't ensure that because it is not the job of the res agents to assist you with your trip, only to make the reservation. However, a Disney specialist agent will be able to tell you about the different types of staterooms, value price seasons and help you get the best value for your money.

AAA offers full travel services, including highly qualified travel agents. They also have a special relationship with Disney, both the curise line and the parks and are often able to get some good package deals. Why don't you visit your local AAA full service office that has a travel agency and talk to them. One thing to consider is that even thought the price may be the same, you might get some special on board credits, cabin upgrades, etc, by using a preferred partner like AAA.
