ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Starting May 26, the Walt Disney Travel Co. will
send all, rather than partial, California tour documents to travel
agents 21 days before their clients arrive.
Currently, agents receive basic travel documents such as airline
tickets, and vouchers for hotels and attractions are delivered to
the clients' hotels.
The change, according to Ted Jansen, general manager of the tour
operator's California office, was prompted by agent and client
feedback. Agents will be able to provide a complete document
package before clients leave, which in turn gives them a chance to
discuss the trip further -- and with all documents in hand, clients
have "peace of mind," Jansen said.
In other news, Walt Disney Travel Co. created some value-added
offerings for spring and early summer. For example, the company is
offering a five-day Disneyland Flex Passport for the cost of a
three-day pass, coupled with four nights of accommodations for the
price of three nights.
The passport permits entry into Disneyland 90 minutes ahead of
the scheduled opening for the public on selected days. In addition,
there are Kids Fly Free offers on selected airlines.
To qualify for these value-added features, bookings must be made
by June 7 and travel must be completed by June 15. Under the Kids
Fly Free program, one child ages 2 to 11 travels free with a paying
adult on selected airlines from eligible markets. The air travel
must be booked as part of the vacation package.
