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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
