As many travel advisors will tell you, the best way to sell something is to experience it firsthand. With a product as expansive as Disney – its theme parks, on-site hotels, and cruise line – there’s always something new to learn and know about to relay back to your clients.
With this in mind, Disney Destinations offers in-person educational experiences and site inspections designed to help their agent partners increase their sales and broaden their knowledge. These tours last approximately four to six hours, giving advisors time to visit Disney Theme Parks or explore on their own.
Here’s a lineup of on-site travel agent programs in 2019. Exact dates will be posted on disneytravelagents.com closer to the end of the year.
