:) who do you book with?

For people who DIY, do you book WDW resort stays directly with Disney?

I usually book with disney direct and then a flight with who is the cheapest this time there was only £20 difference between booking with virgin and disney so booked them with disney so I did not have to pay for the flights straight away.

The last 2 times we've booked through Florida Escapes & I've booked with them again for next year. Booked the flights for next year with netflights as they were cheaper than booking direct with Virgin.

We book accommodation direct with Disney as we often book this before flights are released. They are very good at changing dates if you need to, once flights are sorted.

I book direct with Disney they are so good at accommodating changes, either dates, nights or resorts. We were booked for wilderness lodge this year before they announced the construction, so easy to change with Disney.

Booked direct with Disney for the first time this trip. Flights and everything. Extremely good service, with lots of updates via email - I even got a reminder on the morning of ADR day (as if I needed reminding!).

Booked direct with Disney for the second part of my stay (9 nights). First part (2 nights) went through a Disney travel agent for the 10k then flights through a cheap provider I found through Momodo to get PE on VA. All in all its quite expensive but I am reminding myself I got DDP already for the second part of the stay and tickets for the parks. Only doing Disney this time.

My DH books direct with Disney as we stay on site since our DS10 was born..we tend to go for longer now so he uses Virgin to book other hotels on I Drive, or the coast depending on what we're doing..& usually Virgin Atlantic for getting us across the pond - he's a proper pro now !

Booked via expedia for last year (pop) and year before (art of aviation)

Booked directly with Disney US this year (beach club/villas) as expedia changed their cancellation policies (used to be free cancellation for Disney, now there is a fee) whereas the Disney US site had very good prices and a fantastic cancellation and change policy.
