Format: Paperback
"Twice the size of Manhattan, the 47-square-mile Walt Disney World is the No. 1 vacation destination on the planet. It includes four theme parks, two water parks, a sports complex, a shopping and entertainment district and 19 resort hotels. A visit here is not just an escape from day-to-day doldrums, it's a reawakening of that free-spirited, good-natured soul who lives deep inside you--the one your spouse married, the one you want your children to emulate. No other man-made vacation land so embraces creativity, optimism or a sense of wonder about the world." - From The Complete Walt Disney World 2010

Our first and only visit to Walt Disney World was in 2006, and oh, how I wish I had Julie and Mike Neal's annual guide for that trip! The good news, however, is that since 2007, the Neal's have published their fantastic annual guide not only for those who've never been to WDW and need to know what to expect, but also for those who want to revisit the wonders of the WDW.

A colorful smorgasbord of 550 color photographs, insider information, fun facts, event overviews, show snapshots, ride debuts/retirements, restaurants, hidden Mickeys, parades and so much more, The Complete Walt Disney World 2010 is the only guidebook to the parks and surrounding area you really *need* to have in your possession (although you may *want* more).

Right of the bat, the Neals tells us everything that's new at Walt Disney World, which is especially helpful for those who've been to the parks before. For example, Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from Disney's The Princess and the Frog make their debut in the Magic Kingdom, as does Barack Obama in the all-new Hall of Presidents (he even has a speaking part!).

I grew up in Orlando and was a Disney Cast Member for more than two years, so I know Disney, and I've read every guide book there is. I can tell you that this is by far the best book out there for planning a trip to WDW, whether you are a first timer, a family, or traveling with a flock of teenagers.

This book is brilliantly illustrated with photographs of nearly every attraction. The authors have thought of every key detail needed to create an easy to use guide book. Color coded borders at the top of every page make finding the section you're looking for simple. The book itself isn't too bulky and will easily stash away in any backpack. Average wait times are listed for every attraction, by the hour.

The reviews are honestly written (Country Bear Jamboree is "way past its prime"), comprehensive, and packed with trivia. I was blown away with the number of "fun facts" that I didn't even know. Hidden Mickeys are detailed throughout the book as well.

If there's any point of criticism, it's that the book occasionally reveals its authors' ages. Two full pages are devoted to the Hall of Presidents, the stereotypical Disney snooze fest. The movie in Epcot's France Pavilion gets four stars - I challenge you to find anyone under the age of 30 who would agree. But these are the most minor of infractions.

Every Disney World visitor who reads this book cover to cover will have a fantastic trip!

This book has EVERYTHING. The photos throughout are fantastic. They have maps of the parks, dining info and ratings, shopping info, estimated wait times, character locations, tips on everything, resort info and rating- I could go ON and ON, but I won't. Buy this book- it is fantastic.

I've been researching and planning for my Disney World vacation for months. I have looked at every Disney Guide there is - mostly from the library. The only ones I actually purchased (to have as permanent reference) were this one and Birnbaum's. The info is up to date and the color photos makes it fun and makes it hard to wait until trip time! As far as the political leaning of the authors - it neither adds nor detracts from the actual information that you get in the book. there's very few forms of media that aren't slanted in one direction or another. a thinking person can read around it and get to what (s)he's looking for.

I am a self proclaimed Disney freak! I love Walt Disney World and anything that is written about it. I have purchased several Walt Disney World guidebooks over the years. I have found that The Complete Walt Disney World 2011 to be the most informative and well thought out book out of all of the guidebooks I have purchased. The attention to detail they have and the amount of photos they use is amazing. I love the history they use and the fun facts and Hidden Mickey information they have in the book as well. They give little tidbits of information on all of the parks, restaurants and resorts. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an all-inclusive Walt Disney World Guidebook! It is well worth the money!

This is in my opinion the best Disney World guide out there. There are tons of great high quality photos, along with honest reviews. I prefer this book over the "official" guide because the authors give a full and honest opinon on what's worth your time and what isn't. There are also great DETAILED itineraries for the parks that help you figure out the best times to ride the rides, and when is the best time to get a Fast Pass before they run out! Overall a great guide and good honest reviews.
