I Want To Do Disney With This Guy...
on October 7, 2011
I really liked this book! My husband is an obsessed Disney World fan, so that's pretty much the only place we vacation (he bought an RV almost solely for use at Disney's Fort Wilderness to eliminate the hassle and cost of dealing with hotels...he's committed). We usually go a couple times a year, depending on where the military has us stationed at the time. If we're within 12 hours of driving (I don't fly...sorry Leonard), then according to him, we're close enough!
Having been to the parks so many times I thought I knew it all and was pretty smug about my Disney expertise...turns out, I didn't know jack. I loved the stories of he and his friends roaming the parks, going down to the Utilidors (something I MUST do now...thanks), and all the tips and tricks he's come up with through the years. While many are not tips and tricks I would personally use (what with them being illegal and all), they were still funny to read about. Being military, we get obscene ticket discounts through ITT on base, so that whole section wasn't quite as interesting. However his advice on where and when to drink (the monorail bar crawl? Genius!), scams to watch out for, and suggestions of things to try or to look out for were a lot of fun (loved the fastpass tips).
Overall, if you're a Disney fan and not a total prude (yes, there's swear words in this book...get over it), this is definitely a fun read. Mr. Kinsey has YEARS of experience exploring these parks, and he really knows what he's talking about. We just got back from a 2 week vacation in Disney and I'm kinda bummed I didn't find this book a bit sooner. No worries though, hubby has us going BACK down there in December, so I'm absolutely gonna be on the look-out for those Utilidors! Don't think I'll be able to talk the husband into exploring them, but you never know! Fun book...now I just need to check out the blog!
