Minnie Minus Mickey: A Single Mom Plans for Disney – Booking my Trip!

I was so nervous, clicking the “send” button on the payment for my Disney vacation, until a thought occurred to me; the lightbulb in my head turned on…I have a travel agent. If there is a better deal (because, come on, we’re all reading this because we want the best deal!), she will be as happy as I am about re-booking me to save some hard-earned cash. The decision to use an agent was probably the easiest I made in my plans. Ask her. I go around and around weighing every option like my life depended on it…dining plan or no, which one, value resort or moderate or splurge on a deluxe, vacation club rental points, park hopper, water parks, Disney Quest, Disney transportation or a car…the options are ENDLESS! I swear, I could go on a Disney vacation once a month (wow, wouldn’t that be a dream come true!) and not have the same experience twice! As a single mom, especially, having someone to bounce ideas around with was invaluable. And it’s not costing me a single extra penny. In fact, it’s SAVING me money. Wow. Continue reading
