That is a lot like asking a Mom which is her favorite child! They are all great and varied and have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Depending on your budget, you will find everything from over the top Disney theming perfect for the kids with their favorite characters sprinkled all over the place, to luxury resorts that will pamper the parents at every turn, and everything in between!
In just 3 weeks I will be returning to Disney for the first time this year! It is hard to believe it has been so long since I’ve visited!
This was supposed to be a solo short trip, but then my family found out I was going, so they have decided they want to go too. Since I had already booked All Star Sports, that is where the three of us will stay.
Disney will be releasing their Early 2024 Itineraries SOON!
I know you are so busy thinking about back to school and the upcoming holidays that this is the furthest thing from your mind.
But I also know you want the best value for your hard-earned vacation dollars.
Usually you want to go when its not busy or when it is least expensive, or both! But these days, the crowds are always moderate to heavy and the prices are never going to be like they were years ago. I n other words, those. Free Dining days with low crowds of early Fall are long gone.
Although, if you are a Disney+ member, right now there is a pretty sweet deal going on!
Basically for the same reason any professional that provides a service charges a fee. I am running a business.
I have years of experience, training, and the knowledge of having been there and done that.
By charging a fee, I can take fewer clients and give more attention to them. By charging a fee, I am not going to push you towards a more expensive resort for a bigger commission. By charging a fee, you can be assured that my #1 thought is for YOU and not the supplier (like Disney or Universal). By charging a fee, when that promotion comes up I am not going to loose money by sitting on hold to reduce the price of your vacation, like I would if I was commission based only.
Are there travel agents that don’t charge fees? Yes. They are either not aware of their own worth or try to make up for it in volume sales.
Do I ever reduce my fee? Sometimes. I have a military discount for those using military rates in their travel. We were a military family for 20 years and I appreciate all they do for us.
I also offer a reduced fee for returning guests who have referred other clients who have booked with me and paid my fee. Most of my returning guest are like family to me.

Last Week I talked a bit about myself. Today I want to talk about ... YOU!
When I first started JMorris Travel (10+ years ago) it was to help families like mine, who had children with special needs. I never dreamed my family would become so changed where I was the one with special needs!
The answer is always NOW.
If you are even remotely considering a 2023 Disney vacation you should always start planning as early as possible.
Do NOT wait for deals/discounts to be released.
When it comes to a vacation, there are two types of packers.
Those that start packing six weeks in advance.
And those who start packing five minutes before it's time to go.
And they are always married to each other!
I make packing lists for everyone in the family at least six weeks out. I make sure to include anything that may be specific to them like my son's head phones, and his hoodie. I always add things like a light jacket incase it turns cold or chilly. I add swimwear, even if it is January (because we have swam in January when there was an ice storm here in Georgia!)
Simply got tired of not being able to find the answers to help my special needs son have fun at Theme parks!
The more I researched, the more I realized there was a need for someone to help people like me wade through the rules and regulations as well as tips and tricks to help our kids have fun at the parks. That was 15 plus long years ago. A lot has changed since then. In fact, my special needs child is no longer a child and will be graduating high school in less than 20 days! ( a feat the doctors said would never happen!)
My ultimate goal is for every special needs child or adult to be able to travel to any theme park and have as much fun as any other child. So, click on the button below to get a free copy of a few of my tips and tricks for Universal with Special Needs.
