Your Best Vacation Ever
Even the most hardcore power mom will like this best-selling travel guide. It's written by a former Walt Disney World concierge supervisor who's also the mom of a teenage girl. Packed with candid reviews and thorough descriptions of every ride, show, restaurant and resort, The Complete Walt Disney World 2012 features the most in-depth information ever published about the world's No. 1 vacation destination. Paging through the book is just plain fun, as 535 color photos reveal details you just can't find anywhere else. More frank than Disney's own guides but less snarky than other independent books, the guide is loaded with straightforward insight and helpful information. Though Disney itself has honored the book (naming it an Outstanding Family Product in its iParenting Awards), the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the guide is 'refreshing in its honest opinions.'
