How to specialize as a Disney travel agent

We are constantly asked how to specialize in Disney Vacations. The answer is pretty easy! First, do you have a passion for Disney?  Do you enjoy helping others plan their vacations? Do your friends and family come to you for advice about holidays? Are you on social media sharing about Disney? Most of all, becoming a Disney travel planner is a dream come true and very rewarding! It allows you to help others plan vacation memories that will last a lifetime. However, learning to Specialize as a  Disney Travel Agent is what we do at Fairytale Journeys—a Platinum Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.

5 Reasons to use a Disney Travel Agent

What is a Platinum-Level Authorized Disney Vacation Planner:

Disney invites travel agencies to join this program each year based on specific criteria.  The “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner” logo designates which travel agencies have been awarded this special designation. Fairytale Journeys Travel is part of an elite group of 27+ agencies in the US. Because of this, the Earmarked Platinum status lets clients know we are one of the top agencies that sell Disney Vacations. Our travel advisors complete in-depth Disney training courses and visit Disney destinations throughout the year.

Working as an Independent Contractor :

There are tons of home-based travel agencies. When looking for a travel agency, look for a Platinum or Diamond Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. Because of this, the agency has been given a special designation from Disney. This is based on their performance and dedication to the Disney product. Also, these agencies are Disney’s top booking and selling agencies. They have specialized knowledge of Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland, Adventures by Disney, and Aulani vacations.

Independent Contractors of Fairytale Journeys Travel are given the tools to become successful in their business. Although we would love for agents to have experience, it isn’t necessary. We provide ongoing training and mentors for our agents. For example, Fairytale Journeys Travel provides access to Disney College of Knowledge training along with our personalized training. The Fairytale Journeys Travel support team is solid! As a result, when your clients book with you, they get a team of over 200 experienced Disney Vacation Planners.

As an Independent contractor, you are commission-based. At Fairytale Journeys Travel, our commission split for independent contractors is among the highest as a Platinum agency. Because of our continued support from our suppliers, we receive a more significant commission percentage from them. As a result, our advisors receive more commission and any available perks.
