I recommend using a Disney authorized travel agent to book your Disney vacations. These people are trained in all-things Disney, know what the latest specials are, and will work continuously to get you the best possible deal for your money. My favorite agency is 3-D Travel Company and I recommend my personal agent, Kim Deviese, for all your Disney planning needs.
If, however, you prefer off-site lodging for whatever reason, I recommend my friends at Florida Dream Homes.
These Audio Guides by Lou Mongello are a great alternative to guide books and will provide you with a ton of Disney trivia. We love listening to them in the car.
If you are in need of a crib or stroller while you are vacationing at Walt Disney World (or anywhere in the Orlando area), I’d highly recommend renting from Kingdom Strollers. We were thrilled with our rental experience!
