My family and I are planning to go to Walt Disney World in a couple of months, so I ordered the 2011 Version of the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (WDW). I first went to WDW in the late 90's, and as I wanted to make sure I enjoyed everything there was to enjoy, I bought three or four books on WDW and the surrounding area. I found that the Unofficial Guide had pretty much everything the other books had, and more, so for my next trip in 2004, I only bought the Unofficial Guide.

After receiving the 2011 version and heavily perusing it, I find that, if anything, it's even better than the previous versions. If nothing else, its a LOT larger than the first one I bought in the 90's. It gives ratings and reviews of hotels and dining establishments in the area (both on and off Disney World), covers all of the parks and attractions on Disney in tremendous detail, and the parks and attractions off of Disney in lesser detail (primarily Universal Studios and Seaworld). Additionally, the book provides information on how Disney prices their tickets, how to save money on meals, when to visit Disney, and of course, at the end of the book, their recommended touring plans for each park in order to see as much of the parks as possible in the least amount of time.

The touring plans themselves are almost worth the price of the books. If you've never been to WDW, the parks are HUGE ... and if you just start wandering around and getting on whichever attraction catches your eye, you're going to be spending a lot more time in lines (and less time enjoying the attractions) than you should. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with just going where you want to, when you want to, but you could spend literally hours more waiting in lines than you need to.

This is the best guide book to Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL that I have found.
This is the second edition I purchased.
Has the most information in one book I can find.
Tells the good and the bad.
Can be complex. They give you schedules and plans to see the most, which may seem like a military drill, but you can read these guides and use the pieces you like.

I have a 2005 Unofficial Guide and loved it. It contained a lot more information than this newer guide. You now have to go on-line and become a member (for a discounted price of $8) to get the really important information, such as what days to visit certain parks! The old guides had charts in them and I knew how many people typically visit each park, each day. This guide is now a hotel guide with a lot of "he said, she said" for every hotel/restaurant. For every opinion, there is another opinion telling you the opposite. I actually enjoy the touring plans, but there are only a few in this book. I could have gotten all the updated information online by becoming a member and not purchasing this book. If every page did not tell you to go to touringplans.com then it was every other page! I wish I had saved the $18+ and just subscribed. I thought this would contain new and exciting information. The only new and exciting information was about Universal Studios/IOA...and it made me wish for 4 more days to explore that obviously technologically superior park. (I'll wait until my youngest can ride all the rides; it appears a 7 year old may be waiting around a lot for their older siblings to ride really exciting rides...even Harry Potter has a height requirement we couldn't meet.)

If you have never been to WDW or need lodging information, then by all means, get this book. It is perfect for that and has every bit of information about every possible hotel/campsite, etc., on and on. If you are like me and know where you're staying and have read a previous issue of this book, then just join the unnofficial website, touringplans.com. to get updated information.

I have purchased the Unofficial Guide to WDW for five years. Each edition is updated with the newest information, and has so many tips for saving time and money that it is well worth reading more than once. The touring plans included in the back of the book save so much time that we usually see everything we want, and we get an afternoon break (nap and/or pool time) as well. This book is the essential trip-planning tool. I won't go back to WDW without it!

It has been a number of years since I purchased my last edition of this book and, wow, has it grown. The 2011 version is 854 pages of detail only a Disney fan like myself could love. I am sure some people will say it is far too detailed, as almost every question or issue you could have is answered by the authors who have truly examined their subject from every angle. For example, they took the time to use decible meters in the hotel rooms to report on which rooms are the quietest. Too much detail? Not for me. Rather, a true credit to the authors.
If there was a disappointment it was in the attempt to include information about Universal Studios and Sea World, which I thought might be as thorough as the Disney information, but, as you might expect in a book devoted to Disney, is really given short shrift. I'm not sure why the authors felt a need to go beyond Disney in the first place as they already offer a separate book for non-Disney Orlando attractions.
