Disney Discount Rates for Travel Agents.


Disney Discount Rates for Travel Agents.
Special Travel Agent Rates are made available to Travel Professionals who are College of Disney Knowledge (CDK) graduates, allowing them to experience Disney Destinations at a reduced rate and empowering them to provide their Clients with superior product knowledge and service when selling Disney.

To enhance consistency across Disney Destinations, the following Special Travel Agent Rate policies are now in effect for Travel Professionals booking a new Special Travel Agent Rate reservation for any destination except Disney Cruise Line®. (The policies for Special Travel Agent Rates and Space-Available Rates offered by Disney Cruise Line are not changing at this time.)

  2. Travel Professionals are permitted to make one Special Travel Agent Rate booking per Disney Destination per 12-month period (based on the start date of travel).
  3. The offer is limited to one room for the Travel Professional. A second room may be booked at Walt Disney World® Resort, Disneyland® Resort or Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa if needed to accommodate the immediate family members accompanying the Travel Professional.
  4. A maximum of seven nights is permitted for stays on these rates at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Maximum lengths for Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney® vacations vary by itinerary.
