From the Author
As a mom with two boys of my own, I understand the many challenges of traveling with young kids. Throughout "A Tale of Two Resorts", I've included several helpful features for parents that I would have loved to have at my fingertips during my family's Disney vacations. These useful elements will help you plan your Disney trip plus they'll make your vacation easier once you arrive at the resort. Here are just a few of these invaluable features:
- In Chapter 8 Accommodations - I've included detailed information about every resort including room types available and resort amenities. If you need to know if a particular hotel has a kiddie pool, offers onsite childcare or even how many people the room will accommodate, you'll find those important answers.
- In Chapter 11 Theme Parks - I've included a Word of Warning for each and every attraction that needs one, giving you a heads up on what to expect and what you need to be aware of before taking your child on that particular ride.
- In Chapter 13 Dining - I've included specifics for every dining location from table service to snack stand such as atmosphere, cuisine type, dress code and even menu selections including the kid's meals that are offered. So if you are like me and have kids that are picky eaters, you'll know exactly where to find those all important chicken nuggets or macaroni & cheese.
From the Inside Flap
Like politics and religion, the topic of which destination is better - Disneyland or Walt Disney World - is sure to fire up the faithful. In "A Tale of Two Resorts", Kristi Fredericks takes no side, but she does deliver the most comprehensive reference guide for both resorts available anywhere.

Basically this little book compares the two mega resorts that are Disneyland (and DCA) and Disneyworld, with short concise listings of every attraction, show, restaurant and hotel. If a attraction exists in both parks, Kristi tell us which is better, and I mostly agree with her. (This can be important for fans who visit one set of parks often, but rarely get to the other, like us. Knowing you can skip Soaring over California on our Florida trips saves time. Knowing NOT to skip Magic Kingdoms Haunted Mansion is just as important).
I would have liked to read a little more of Kristi's fun commentary, but other than that minor quibble, this is almost required reading.
