    Useful, concise and entertaining

    We followed recommendations for the one-day Disneyland trip and fast pass usage, and it worked out really, really well. We also found the info regarding Universal Studios to be very valuable.

    Not the Best Guide I've Purchased

    This quide was helpful on some things and it takes a different approach then a lot of the others I've used but I would say it's intended and useful only for a first time visitor who knows little to nothing about Disneyland. I almost felt it was written for an International visitor.

    I Get One Every Year

    I can't imagine visiting Disneyland without this gem. I pick one up every year and have found the information reliable, useful, entertaining and very honest.
    It helps us save time and money each and every time we visit.
