What do we have against Mickey? Not a thing. We love the little guy. But just outside his kingdom lies a dizzy world of wonderful attractions, more than enough to fill weeks and weeks of magical days. Within the greater Orlando area, or just a short ride away, you’ll find all the ingredients for a non-stop, thrill-a-minute vacation, with oases of quiet beauty thrown in for good measure.

After Disney is the most complete guide to all these riches. This is no cookie-cutter guidebook, but the work of true theme park nuts, told with wit and humor and no punches pulled. Inside you’ll find:
Touring plans to all major parks

In-depth descriptions of every ride and attraction

The latest on the Harry Potter attractions at both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure

Insider tips on how to get the best seats and get in on the action

Coverage of scores of lesser attractions overlooked by the other guidebooks.
And more!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
One of the most informative travel books I have read…It’s not only great for tourists, but it’s great for locals too.
— Rachel Yates, "Behind The Thrills," April 18, 2012

…[Offers] fantastic value in deciding and decoding the "big" attractions to do that are not Disney.
—Joey Inigo, Mouse Info; April 16, 2012
