The information in the book is really for families. It is also nothing really new if you've read other guidebooks (I think the Unofficial Guides are the best). However, the planning and journaling aspects of it are what make it unique and something I'd purchase again.
I loved that the book had a page for orienting yourself to each park before the chapter got into the details of the park itself. The full color, fold out maps are also very helpful. Each section for the parks also had great tips for making the most out of the park and tips for the best places to see the shows and parades. I also loved the charting the attractions section at the end of each parks chapter. I really loved that the author and family all gave their own opinion about each ride and attraction. It gave different points of view from several different age groups to help make the decision as to whether or not we would enjoy the attraction.
Another part of the book that I found very useful and informative was the Making More Magic section. It had great advice for finding some of the great lesser known parts of the parks and making the most of the behind the scenes tours that Disney World offers. This section also has a great page with hints about finding the hidden Mickeys around the park and a section where you can notate where they are when you find them. It just adds another dimension to one of my favorite things to do at Disney.
The last part of the book has a section where you can notate every part of your trip to disney on these great card stock pages that will stand the test of time with your memories written on them. There is a card for the trip down, the room, each day at the parks, and any memories that you would want to jot down. Each card has a pocket where you can store things like tickets, receipts, baggage claims, card keys, and other things to help make each part of the vacation as memorable as possible. Having a place to put these items and notes will come in very handy years down the road when we are planning future trips and want to bring back the memory of this one.
In conclusion, this is a fantastic resource for any vacation to Disney World that can only add to the experience and give you a place to keep your memories for years to come. I strongly suggest checking it out. It's a great bargain for all of the information that is included.
The super best thing about this book is that they have average waiting times to get from your resort to each Disney Park, plus Downtown Disney. That is in none of the other books I have come across. The second super best thing about this book is all the journal things you can do to record your trip and having the pockets for various things you will need to hang on to, such as receipts.
My only fault for this book is that they did not mention exactly how claustrophobic Mission Space is. I read that in multiple other things and it is very apparent if you get the WDW vacation DVD from Disney themselves. I realize to some people if they are not claustrophobic they would not understand, but I would think that is something to mention.
However, I do not see that one little niggly point a reason not to get this book. Your family will thank you for how well informed you are. I do also recommend the Birnbaum WDW 2012 book in conjunction to this one, just because there are somethings covered in there that are not covered in this book and vice versa. I also think Birnbaum has some tables that are more helpful than this book. I think if you want to maximize the time you have at "The World" you should get as much knowledge as possible and if you can only get one book, I would definitely say this one.
