Mr. Fridgen loves Disney. No, seriously. He LOVES it. You can tell from his writing that he literally gets goofy about it! (See what I did there!) His writing style draws you in and is infectious.
The section I liked the most was about Tokyo Disney. Each section begins with a great basic history of the “how’s” and “why’s” of each resort. Then it delves into the culture and customs of each area including how to get to the resorts, where to stay, what money they use, etc. Each attraction within the park is also given some time, telling you what is great about it. Mr. Fridgen makes sure you know he isn’t a Teacup fan! I’ve never been to any Disney but now I want to see Tokyo. I normally wouldn’t even think to visit a Disney resort while on vacation in a foreign country but I would consider it now.
This is a great book if you are a Disney enthusiast, planning a vacation to any of the Disney resorts worldwide, or if you enjoy travel books, like I do. I think I would have liked some pictures of each of the resorts, although that may make this already huge book too big!
Michael Fridgen writes this guide in a very simple and relatable way. He adds his love of Disney along with each experience of every Disney resort, even adding Disney's cruise ship. He makes you enjoy reading this guide, and doesn't leave you bored. The author's writing is fun and informative. He lightens up the book with his casual writing, as if he is speaking to you personally. I always like that in a writer.
I've only ever been to DisneyWorld in Orlando, Florida when I was very young. I hardly even remember it. Fortunately, all of it was recorded, so even though I don't remember it, I have the memories stored elsewhere.
Disney parks are huge, so a thorough guide is sure to help you, especially when going to a Disney resort in a whole different country. After reading this guide, I would love to visit all the Disney parks around the world. They seem very exciting and different. But for right now I will use this guide for the Disney resorts right here in the U.S. This guide was very helpful and easy to understand.
Another great thing about the book is how the author chose to write it. There is a light humor aspect to it. It doesn't just pound you with information like most informational books do. It is also very well written. Easy to read and understand.
Like I said earlier, this is a good book if you are planning a trip to any of the Disney locations. If you are wanting to plan a trip, I suggest buying this book. It will definitely come in handy. However I will say, although it can be a useful tool in planning your trip I do not believe it is a must or a have to have. I am glad I got the book though and will be planning a trip to a Disney location with my husband and girls.
