Easy to read and so much useful information.

Format: Paperback
This book does have some helpful tips, but it is not consistent. For example, in the Magic Kingdom section, it may have useful info like good resting places (esp. if you have small children), but not in Epcot section, for example. Or the Magic Kingdom has a section about attractions that are good for preschoolers, and the Hollywood Section does not--you have to search all over the place to find this info. Also the index is INCORRECT. Since the book is sometimes all over the place, I tried to use the index to find a specific topic I needed information on. For example, in the index, it says that the topic "Shopping, delivery for onsite guests" should be on page 42--it is not. The whole index is like that. You would think someone from Fodor's would have proofed/edited the index.

We've gotten this book and it's annual updates for the last 3 years, and it's saved us a lot of money, and, more importantly TIME. We planned according to the recommendations in the book (which are almost always perfectly accurate), and we were able to avoid long lines and many other time wasters. The author of the book knows more about how to do Disney, than anyone. Our vacations at Disney World have been greatly enhanced because of the info. If you're going to Disney, GET THIS BOOK.

This was our first time in Disney with the kids and this book was a valuable resource. We loved the tips, the maps and the recommendations. From our experience Ms. Wiley was "on the nose" when it comes to recommending rides for the ager groups our children were belong to (two and four AND A HALF!!!!).

I've even showed it to friends who go to Disney every year and they found it helpful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When we took our children (then 9 and 5) to Disney World in 2006 we looked at a lot of guide books and finally bought the 2006 version of this one. It is an amazing book -- was right on in so many areas. The "scare factor" warnings saved our hides on several rides -- and the one time I ignored it and decided my kids would love the ride even though the book warned that almost everyone gets scared (Dinosaur) both of my kids were so traumatized we had to promise for the next 2 days that "this ride is not scary I promise and I'm sorry again." I wrote all through the book so we would remember the next time what we loved, what was not worth it, and what might be better when they were older.

There were so many good hints and tips in it that when we returned to Disney this month we bought the updated version. While we waited in line at Animal Kingdom at 3 the family behind us (who had been there since 10) said they couldn't believe how busy it was -- they were exhausted. I told them we had read in the book that you should either be there right at the beginning and take a long break in the middle or arrive toward the end of the day (when we did.) They spent the rest of the line reading about the park they were going to the next day -- this is how helpful these hints and tips are.

Despite the name, this book has major sections about Universal, Sea World, etc along with where to stay, what to pack, what not to pack, how to get around, and what kids of different ages (and parents!) will enjoy. It tells you when to make reservations for dining, and gives a countdown timeline for buying tickets, making reservations, etc. It gives a map of each park/land and a "don't miss" list by age group.

I purchased this book based on Fodor's reputation of excellent travel books, but this is simply not up to par! I have several other Disney books --- Birnbaum and the Neal's Complete Walt Disney World books --- and this Fodor edition contains several typos (including "Sindbad" instead of Sinbad at Universal's Island of Adventure) and ride errors. It is also not very thorough or complete. If you're going to choose just one Disney book, put this one LAST on the list.

Format: Paperback
This was a good overall guide and gave some info that other guides did not contain. The info on the rides and shows is very informative, with info on ride times, line length, etc.

However, it found some errors in specific information. For example, on the Sea World section there is info about behind the scene tours, those were for 2008 only and the phone number listed in the book was for a title company, not Sea World Orlando.

Format: Paperback
We buy this book every time we go to Disney World. We won't leave home without it. The editors need to do a little more careful checking that pull outs are on the correct pages in newer editions. This book is a must have for any family going to Disney. There are tips for everything in Disney from food, to hotels, which rides are scary, Must dos, and on and on. Stop looking, this is the book you need.

I work at Fodor's Travel. Unfortunately, some copies of Fodor's Walt Disney World with Kids 2009 were erroneously printed with the index from the 2008 edition. If you purchased a copy with this problem, please go to [...] to download a free PDF of the corrected index. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
