May I ask what made you choose to use a travel agency vs. going directly through Elvia/the resort itself to block the rooms? I had actually thought the room block needed to be made directly through the resort in order for the room nights to count towards getting the unlimited events. So, I went through the resort. Everything so far seems like it's comparable, but I can't be certain...and now I'm questioning my decision not to use a travel agent! Gah. Any insight on how they've made your lives easier? And if the prices really are a better deal?
Also, thanks for your feedback on your timeline for sending out the invites. Great to know! I think I need to get on getting mine out
