Frequently Asked Questions
Q) How do we book a vacation with 101 Magical Plans?
When you contact us, we will send you a questionnaire to find out more information and what you are looking for in a Disney or Universal vacation, including membership in any special groups, budget, dining likes and dislikes, theme park or Disney cruise preferences, and special needs, if any. We will then create the magical Disney trip (or spectacular Universal trip) you will love, at the price you want and often lower than you would receive by booking directly through Disney or Universal.
Q) Why should we use your services?
I have been planning Disney and Universal vacations for friends and family for years. In addition, as an affiliate of Ears of Experience®, an award wining Earmarked agency, I have many years of experience with Disney vacations, including theme parks, Disney cruises, and adventures behind me. You will receive the lowest price we can find, and if you see a lower price elsewhere for the same Disney vacation package or the package price goes down before you leave, we will adjust our price. Certain restrictions may apply.
Q) If your services are FREE, how are you paid?
Our vendors pay us, not our clients. There is NO catch. Our services are completely free to you.
Q) Where should we stay during our Disney or Universalvacation?
We are happy to make hotel suggestions, and we take into account your traveling party's likes, dislikes, special needs, and budget. Your trip is the vacation, so we personalize everything for you.
Q) Do you plan Disney Cruises?
Yes! Cruising is one of our favorite ways to travel as a family and Disney cruising is the best. We have planning, tips and tricks for everything Disney and cruising.
Q) Do you plan for Disneyland?
Yes! Walt's first park is very magical and a very magical place to visit. We help you plan for the moment you book to your first steps in to Disneyland® Themepark and California Adventure®.
Q) Where should we eat?
Dining at Disney is one of our favorite parts! Part of the planning process for your Disney vacation package is asking about your family's eating habits, likes, and dislikes. This includes Walt Disney World Resort®, Disneyland® Parks, Aluani® and Disney Cruise Line®. We will suggest restaurants for you and even make reservations if you like. No hassle, no stress. Universal Studios Orlando Resort® is full of amazing dining options as well.
Q) Which package is best for us?
We customize every Disney or Universal vacation package to the client's needs. We will send you a questionnaire to fill out to learn your needs, and then we will create a package tailored to you and your traveling party.
Q) Do we even need a Disney or Universal vacation package?
You can save money, stress, and hassle by booking a package. Everything is taken care of for you. All you need to do is pack, choice your FastPasses or Express pass (imagine skipping lines!) and show up!

Q) How do we know if we qualify for a Disney or Universal hotel discount?
Some Disney and Universal hotel discounts are open to everyone, but other discounts are specific to groups such as Florida residents or military families. We will always ask whether you belong to those groups to help us find the biggest savings on the price of your Disney or Universal vacation.

Yes! Pass holders often receive great Disney hotel discounts and other perks.

Great question! We will price watch your vacation and automatically adjust or apply new discounts to your Disney or Universal vacation if applicable.
Q) How are payments processed?
All reservations are made directly with Disney or Universal. Your credit card statement for both the deposit and final payment will reflect a charge from Walt Disney Travel Company® or Universal Studios Resort Orlando®. I will review your payment schedule when your reservation is made, including final payment due date and the policies set by Disney. I will never hold or deposit any payments into my accounts for any reason.
