Does anyone have some experience with the various Disney-authorized TAs? So far I've run into Small World Vacations, The Magic For Less Travel, and Dreams Unlimited Travel. I know that MouseSavers recommends SWV and that SWV has also provided some information for TP, but the other two TAs offer Disney gift cards if you book with them, which is definitely an incentive.
I tend to be very hands-on when it comes to planning my vacations, so I hate to give that up. On the other hand, a TA might be able to get me a deal that I might otherwise not be aware of or they might know when to jump on a particular discount to ensure I can stay at the hotel I want rather than my waiting too long for a better discount and perhaps missing out at being able to book at the hotel I want.
Is it worth it to use a TA or are the discount offers fairly predictable both in the types of discounts and in when they're released?
