My husband, son, and I just got back from Disney World a few weeks ago. We planned the trip in just a month's time, and WDW guides were very helpful!

The first two guides we bought were the Birnbaum's 2006 Official Guide and the Birnbaum's 2006 guide for kids. Because these are official books, no drawbacks or negatives are discussed. However, at 273 pages, there's a lot of great basic information on WDW.

For example, this particular guide features lots of colorful pictures on its glossy pages, as well as descriptions. It's an excellent guide for first timers who don't know what to expect and want to pore over the book in anticipation!

In addition to describing attractions, shows, restaurants, and hotels, the Birnbaum Guide to WDW provides several charts--such as the Walt Disney Resort Finder. A picture of each resort is displayed, as well as information on location, setting/theme, what types of people favor a particular resort (e.g. honeymooners, families, conventioneers, etc.), amenities, and more.

The Disney Dining Plan is also described, as is Disney's Magical Express Service. There are directions to getting to the parks from the Orlando International Airport (MCO), the average temperatures and rainfall for every month, park hours, admission prices, new attractions, most/least crowded times and so on.

I found the maps to be especially helpful, and tore them out to use when we went to each of the parks. The WDW Birnbaum guide is a great book for first timers, but I would also get the The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2007 as well--especially if you're the type that counts pennies and enjoys strategizing.

I picked this up because I've already booked a trip to Walt Disney World, to stay at one of their hotels. I wanted information about park strategies, ride restrictions, and restaurants, so I thought I'd get a guide.

This book offers a LOT of great suggestions on when to plan a trip. That didn't help me, though, since I've already booked. They have nice details about the sizes of rooms at all of the resorts, but not a lot of maps. And, I suppose since they are the "official" guide, they don't offer much in the way of comparison or preference. I'd have liked to see more about what they think is better, with some actual downsides, which of course they don't provide.

There are a few suggested park itineraries, and they do have information on each and every attraction at all of the parks. But, again, other than picking "Birnbaum's Best" they don't say too much about preference. I didn't find the schedule too helpful.

I really would have liked to see more information on the restaurants, again mentioning both great and bad things, plus a little more of the menus. I understand that the menus can change seasonally, or otherwise, but it would still help more to know if there's anything my little ones will eat at any given place. There are web forums and chat sites that offer this kind of information, so why not in the official book? Again, they have a "best" section at the end of the dining guide, but it's just along the lines of "best burger", "best ice cream", "best romantic dinner", but nothing too specific.

I could see this book being very useful if you are still in the very early "we'll go soon, but don't know when, where or how" part of a trip to the World, but if you have some idea of what you're doing already, it's not going to give you much new information.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rob Bittick on June 23, 2007
My family just came back from our vacation at Walt Disney World (WDW) in mid-June, 2007. Birnbaum's WDW book made the vacation much more enjoyable.

CROWDS: When I was a child back in the 1960s, a family could simply show up at Disneyland, buy a book of tickets (e.g. "E-Ticket Rides"), and have a great day. Those times are gone. In a nation with a population of over 300 million people, plus a number of international vacationers, good vacation spots like WDW are going to be crowded during vacation times. You need to plan your vacation in advance to avoid frustrating long lines at attractions and restaurants. This book serves as an excellent guide so you can plan for such crowds and make decisions that will reduce the price of your vacation.

RESORTS: For example, there are several resorts to at WDW. This books lists the ups and downs of each, given your circumstances and preferences. If you have young children, you may want to stay at certain resorts, while if you do not have children, other resorts may be more appealing. The price of each resort will not tell you whether you will enjoy the stay.

EATING: Likewise, do the meal plan. You will save money. A little planning (i.e. reservations in advance) will get you into good table service restaurants at WDW. This book reviews the restaurants at each park, as well as the quick counter service restaurants. NOTE: if you get a room with a kitchen, you can save money by making breakfast in your room.

PARKS AND ATTRACTIONS: Again, this book makes good recommendations on what parks to visit on which days, based on past attendance. We found that Epcot was not as crowed as the Magic Kingdom in the late afternoons and evenings, as indicated in this book.
