Top customer reviews
They include both full-day and part day touring plans for each park. Plans for people with kids and without. Plans for people who sacrifice all their fun for their toddler's fun. And, they have cut-out pocket summaries in the back of the book so that you aren't carrying the VERY heavy main book with you to the parks.
Funny, and, as mentioned before, sometimes sarcastic and sometimes critical, this is not a dry, no opinion book. If that's not your style, don't buy it. However, if you want real people (and professional) opinions, with a ton of info, you will love the info within. Highly recommended!
The only caution - we were quite disappointed in the Dixie Landings "moderate" resort and wished there had been a more frank assessment of housekeeping and the condition of the rooms, which has slipped tremendously since our last visit. Better advice is to dip into the college fund and stay in a top tier resort. They were correct in stating that the French Quarter was nicer than Riverside as it has recently been renovated, but they failed to mention that their housekeeping is so poor. Some employees were obviously disgruntled and bashed Disney openly. It's sad to see what has happened to the "happiest place on earth."
That aside, we all had a wonderful time, thanks in part to this book. This is the only book needed to get the most out of the parks, but it is advisable to study up the day before and remember to tear out the handy summary page provided at the back of the book to keep in your pocket while at the park. Buying supplemental books which have more maps would have been helpful to us.

We anticipated not getting to many of the activities we wanted to see and do because of the anticipated crowds, but we followed all the touring plans listed in the book and managed to do everything we looked forward to, with our wait times reduced to a minimum. The touring plans even include a succinct list of restaurant choices at each park with ratings, type of service and food available. All this information at your fingertips!
One of the nice features of the book is that the authors give their opinions, followed by both positive and negative comments from readers who shared their opinions with the authors. This enabled us to obtain a more complete picture of each activity. Since we range in age from 8 to 73, it was very helpful to read comments and suggestions from the authors and their readers applicable to different age groups.
We had purchased another guide book as a companion book, but it was completely unnecessary. The Unofficial Guide was all we needed. We wouldn't dream of doing Disney without it!
