I found this WDW reference book to be a completely acceptable tool.....especially for repeat Disney visitors with older children--teens or "tweeners." The book addresses each of the Disney parks in adequate detail...in addition to Universal Studios, Sea World, and waterparks unrelated to Disney. The color photos that the book contains were beautifully done and certainly appreciated. And while this book will certainly serve as my guide and research tool for what I hope will be a visit to the Disney area in the spring, for a first-time visitor (especially one with young children), I would highly recommend The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (2011 version of course). When I first visited Disney with my young children, this book served as a "bible" of sorts. The Unofficial Guide details each and every ride in each and every Disney park (rather than just the highlights, as is the case in Fodor's reference book), and evaluates it based age-range appeal, scare factor, and more. I carried this book with me the entire week and did not make a move without consulting it first.

Again, completely adequate tool to repeat WDW visitors, but somewhat lacking for those neophyte visitors who require as much information as possible.

I'm planning a trip to Disney World in February, so for the last few months I've been scouring lots websites for all the info I can find. Even though I've been to Disney many times in the past (and even worked there in college), it has been nearly 20 years since my last visit and things change all the time down there. That's how they keep you coming back! So because I'd already been doing lots of my own research, including reading a few trivia books and Mousejunkies, I figured this would just be a pleasant rehashing of old news that would help get me all fired up for my trip. Boy was I wrong, in a good way!

I am so impressed at the wealth of information in this little volume. After all my online research, trivia books, and even a few videos on the Disney parks, I still learned a little something new on almost every page! They give general descriptions of the best rides without giving away too many of the magical surprises you'll encounter, without wasting a lot of time on the less interesting attractions. They also review a wide cross-section of the restaurants and resorts. Even though I already have my reservations, it had me second-guessing myself a little bit on the resort and definitely gave me some new ideas about where to eat.

The most valuable part of this book does not really lie in the descriptions of everything there is to see and do, but in the rock-solid advice on how to best approach your vacation. While giving you all the tools to create a detailed plan, they also advise when to take it easy, smell the roses, soak up the details, even go back to your hotel for a nap. The key to getting the most out of a Disney vacation is planning plus flexibility. Too little planning and you'll be overwhelmed, maybe missing some of the best parts.

Fodor's guide to Disney World and the other Central Florida attractions is both impressive in its breadth of information and difficult to read because of it. I've been to Disney World a number of times and a book like this is an absolute necessity for the first visit. After that it is helpful for information about new attractions and any changes that may have occurred since the previous visit. Plus, anticipation of a vacation is part of the joy. Picking up a book about the destination is an essential step in that process.

But, without a doubt, the truly important time for a book like this is before that first visit. That's because even if the vacation plan appears to include plenty of time to see everything, that concept simply doesn't exist in Disney World. Time can be lost in an endless variety of unexpected ways and suddenly the vacation is over and only a fraction of what was hoped for was accomplished. That is an expensive mistake and an unnecessary one. A modicum of planning can mitigate a wasted vacation.

This in no way suggests that anyone should organize a frantic paced schedule with the family returning more stressed than when they left home. Planning is the key. Planning is essential. With planning comes peace. Even if you abhor planning, this is the one time to do it. You aren't wandering the streets of Paris leisurely taking in the sights and soaking up the atmosphere while people watching at a street side cafe. There is much to do and if a framework of basic decisions aren't made about what is or isn't important, the trip may be disappointing. What do the participants want to see and do above all else? What experiences are essential and which ones have a lower priority? Where should money be saved and where should it be spent more freely?

We've always relied on the Unofficial Guide for our Disney trips, but even the obsessive eldest son was tired of rereading that one. This colorful and comprehensive alternative covers the entire Orlando area and while there's some trade off in focus you get compensated with thoroughness.
