I've booked everything myself. Researched for hours and hours. I booked flights on day of release, directly with BA, and am very happy with the price. I've also spoken to them at length and they have been extremely helpful. We've booked 9 different locations for accommodation, in places that we researched too. I then booked whoever was a) cheapest and b) cancellable. I've mostly used Expedia for this, via Quidco (when I remembered!). I feel more in control this way. I've also spoken to Disney on the phone a few times. I have booked theme park tickets in the BF sale, either via an agent, or direct with the park. I'm hoping everything falls into place in August...

We just booked everything direct or using sites like ATD for tickets. I did price up our holiday with Virgin, and even with indirect flights, it came in at almost double what weve paid booking separately, and we wouldnt have had the flexibility of booking everything how we want it (in fact, my dummy Virgin booking didnt include our first 5 nights at Universal as I couldnt figure out how to add a different hotel.)

I book everything myself, but have done some elements via agents where the price is better. For last years trip I booked the fly drive part direct with BA, Disney hotel with dining plus Universal tickets through Orlando Attractions (who are great), Universal hotel through Travelbag online, and villa direct with owner

Never use a travel agent for the US, do it yourself nearly always cheaper and always more flexible 😊
