It was an easy and quick read.

If this is the only WDW guide you consult, then I suppose that much of the information is new.

I LOVED this book. This book was extremely helpful planning our family's trip to Walt Disney World. The book is full of very detailed information, shares helpful hints and is organized in an easy to follow format. The book is very comprehensive and covers topics like should you stay at a Walt Disney World resort, how to handle the reservation system, dining at Walt Disney World, and excellent descriptions of the parks and the different attractions. A lot of thought was put into the age appropriateness of the attractions, which is an important factor for all parents to know. The author knew this from first hand experience, having been at the parks himself many times with his wife and young children. Perhaps the best feature of the book is the tips that he gives that can save you a great deal of time and money. The author and his family clearly love Walt Disney World and it's many, many attractions and want to share their vast knowledge with others, to make sure they have the best vacation possible.

This book is an essential book for anyone planning on taking a trip to Walt Disney World. I would take it with you and keep it close by to use as a reference once you are at the park. This book will make your overall trip a much easier and enjoyable experience.

Downloaded "The Busy Family's Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2012" via Kindle for Android last night. It was an easy and quick read. I especially like the "age-specific" "Must Do's" at each of the Parks and the "Take a Picture Here" suggestions. There are also phone numbers provided for any and every need at each Park too! Thumbs-up from the Gray family...and we will have it on my Andriod to access at Disney! :)

Format: Paperback
The Busy Family's Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2012 is a systematic, well organized, easy read, which does exactly what the author states. Instead of being overwhelmed by a 400 page book, the author provides families with in depth knowledge and clear explanations on how to navigate every aspect of a Disney vacation in a concise and consistent manner.

He breaks down each park and shares what attractions are a must see for each age group. His information about topics such as child swap, fast pass, and how to navigate the transportation system are invaluable.

It may be possible to gather much of this information by searching a variety of online sources, but to me spending less than $10 to buy a book that has all that information at my fingertips makes much more sense than spending ten to twenty hours searching various sites and printing up the results. My time is worth much more than a $10 investment.

Having been to Disney World 3 times prior to reading this book I still learned some very helpful tips. The knowledge I gained was well worth my time and money. I would recommend this book to anyone who is visiting Disney World, be it a first trip or a fifth trip. I will never travel to Disney World again without my copy of The Busy Family's Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2012.

I saw repeated ads for this on the newsfeed of my FB account. After thinking I would have no use for this book, I decided to follow the link to get more info. Well...I'M GLAD I DID!!! This book provided the most comprehensive info on DisneyWorld that I have ever found. It was clear and concise and didn't weigh down the info with superfluous words and details. I can't wait to use what I learned in this book when I travel to Disney.
