Format: Paperback
We discovered valuable information in this book each time we looked up a ride, show, eating area of the WDW complex during our recent trip to WDW. We used this guide every day of our trip. Our group included multiple members with a variety of special needs and we found that each recommendation in the book was "right on". The book offered great recommendations for essentially everything one might come across in WDW. This is a fantastic book for anyone who might have a special concern about dealing with any aspect of your WDW vacation.
The best elements of this book are:

1) Its organization: The book is organized so that one can look up information and suggestions either by the attraction or the "special need".

2) The broad range of "needs" covered: Whether you are concerned about easy fatigability, size, child related (and adult related problems) such as ADD/ADHD, Torrette's, autism-spectrum disorders, pregnancy (and fertility issues!), physical or emotional limitations, sun-sensitivity, chronic health problems or basically any area of concern that might affect you or your traveling group- you will find information here.

3) A large number of contributing authors with personal experience with each of the conditions.

4) Included information on the roughness or "scary factor" of the rides or shows- which will be helpful to anyone, not just people who identify themselves as having special needs.

5) Information of where to rent equipment: scooters, wheelchairs, vehicles capable of transporting scooters or wheelchairs, etc...and not just listing the places inside the park. We found that we were not the only people who rented from outside the park...no wonder- this saved the major hassle of tracking down equipment each day.

This book provide great information on everything in Disney World. They provide it on Resorts, Dining, and Theme Parks. They did not update it fully for this year. For example it goes up to 2007 for the yearly celebration or Hollywood Studios' new parade but it included Toy Story Mania. The book hardly contained anything on Disney Cruise Line. It should contain more information on entertainment and food and activites onboard and Castaway Cay and prices but it did not. It should be called "Open Mouse for Walt Disney World" without having Disney Cruise Line added to the title.

I think this book has valuable information. It is a good book. I am a person with health considerations and a big Disney Fan. I found this book and the Walt Disney World with Disabilities both very helpful. Since they are both good references for my needs with their own style and quality I used them both.

If you or a family member suffers from food allergies, motion sensitivity, mobility issues, fears, or any other special needs or challenges, this book and show how you can have a fantastic time at Walt Disney World!

This book has a lot of the information from the PassPorter's Walt Disney World combined with additional information for those with travel disabilities and allergies.

My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it really doesn't cover the Disney Cruise Line all that much.

This book is an excellent tool to aid in preparing for your Disney trip when you may have or be traveling with someone that needs special assistance or have a special condition. Disney is setup to provide a fun environment for anyone, no matter how they may be different from the majority of its customers. By reading this book, I was able to learn which rides and/or attractions could more easily accommodate visitors of large size, taller height, and mobility issues. This book offers a wealth of information on dining in restaurants with special dietary needs or preferences, also. The book details insight and preparation information related to too many issues to actually list here, but having read this, almost everyone should feel prepared, reassured, and excited about their upcoming Disney trip!

One drawback to note is that this book was published in 2007. Any changes, refurbishments, or new attractions added may be missing from the information presented in this book. I viewed the information as "the attraction will be AT LEAST this accessible." Refurbishments may have been made to improve these attractions due to the fact that Disney does quite a great job attempting to accommodate most everyone's needs to the best of their ability.

This book is great for anyone who may have special needs. I used it to help plan a trip with a senior "at large" with special dietary needs, another less mobile senior, three young adults and a toddler, all in one group. There were also sections for other disabilities as well. It made the headache of planning into a much better experience.

This was a great pre-trip tool for getting familiar with the challenges in each park and resort. There were a number of tips that we followed, and they were very helpful to our son, who has Tourette Syndrome, ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorder. In fact, he started insisting that I refer to the book when we were considering an attraction, a restaurant, etc. Knowing that we had vetted things ahead of time greatly reduced his anxiety about his first visit to Disney.

The main drawback to this book is its weight -- it's too much to throw in a backpack when you're actually going to be at the parks. If it could be divided into sections and distributed as a set, you could carry the one or two that apply to the place you're headed, and switch them out when it makes sense.

Overall, this was a great book. We heard stories from several friends who'd had a bad experience when they inadvertently steered their kids toward an attraction that ended up being much scarier/bumpier/wetter than they had expected. Since we'd read about everything ahead of time, we didn't have any such surprises.
