    Bought this again

    I bought the 2011 edition of this photo-filled Disney World guidebook, and I'm glad I also got this new one. It is still just jam-packed with beautiful, surprising photographs. Our children, like last year, picked out the rides they wanted to go on by looking through this book. My wife and I feel fully prepared to go on our Disney vacation now. The only thing I'd change is if the book would also include some info about the other Orlando attractions. Our kids want to see the Harry Potter land at Universal, and this guide doesn't cover it. Other than that, I'm perfectly happy with the Complete Guide, and I'm sure I'll buy another one next year :)

    Beautiful book, but I don't agree with everything

    This Disney World guide book is certainly beautiful -- there are color photos on nearly every page, and lots of colorful touches everywhere. I really like the different colored bars that separate the different chapters, because it makes it easy to find what you're looking for. However, I don't agree with some of the ratings in the book (every attraction, restaurant and hotel have star ratings). For example, this book gives my favorite show, Lights Motors Action in Hollywood Studios, only a 2-star rating out of 5. It's so much better than that! It also gives the Caribbean Beach Resort only 3 stars out of 5, which is also too low. On the other hand, it does have lots of information about the Art of Animation Resort, which is brand new. All in all, I recommend this book, although it gets some things wrong.

    Nice book!

    Pleased and pleasantly surprised at the detail in this Disneyworld guidebook. I figured it would be pretty to look at, based on the colorful cover, but the number and quality of photos inside still was a bit of a shock. The information is better than I've read anywhere else. Can't wait to go to Magic Kingdom, Epcot and the rest and try this out for myself!

    Great info, especially about the WDW resorts

    What a useful book! I'm quite pleased with its depth of information, especially about the Walt Disney resorts. My family is visiting Orlando this spring, and we're trying to plan our vacation ahead of time (particularly where to stay). This guidebook has beaucoup info on each Disney hotel, including room photos, restaurant reviews, pool descriptions, even how far the hotel is from the four different theme parks. Outstanding photos, by the way, throughout the book.

    Impressive! Ginger gets the star treatment

    If only all travel guides were like this one! I'm usually a DK or Lonely Planet guidebook buyer, but this one on Disney World has their visual appeal plus startling detail. Each page, it seems, has at least one photo, and the photos are not the typical brochure-style shots. I loved the detail shots of my favorite guilty pleasure, Jungle Cruise; I've never seen "Ginger" the crocodile (careful, she snaps!) so clearly. Written descriptions are also terrific. Every little fun reference Disney puts in their rides is listed out for you to discover. Every Hidden Mickey (another guilty pleasure of mine!) is also listed. All in all, a must for those planning a Disney trip, or anyone wanting to remember their great time on vacation.
