    Great Source!

    Our 2010 family reunion will be in Orlando and Disney is on the agenda. I purchased this book for insight on the parks. It provides much useful info and breaks down what to bring, what's allowed/not allowed, "fright potential" for specific age groups, best times to go w/toddlers, line wait times, etc. A good purchase. I recommended it to the other family members with kids.

    Unofficial Guide w/kids indeed

    Great book. I'm a Disney Pro when it comes to adults. I go atleast twice a year. However, I have young kids 4 and 1, and this book gives me a better perspective on how to handle the world through their eyes.

    A Must Read before Visiting The Parks

    A friend recommended this book to us just before we left for Disney World with our two granddaughters. The authors' honest appraisal of the rides and the grading provided by adults and children was very helpful. The tour plans in the back are a valuable aid in planning the day's activities. We highly recommend this book.

    Great book!

    Having been to Disney many, many times I know my way around. This was my first trip with two kids under 4. It was helpful to have some inside information focusing on the needs and interests of little ones. There was a good mix of material presented by the writers and material provided by readers. I would recommend this book to anyone going to Disney for the first time or for someone who's been many times.

    Third time using this book...

    We have used this book on two previous trips to Disney. We avoided lines, figured out the best places to eat with our son and all in all had a fantastic time, thanks to a little bit of pre-planning.

    Worth buying that guide

    It has been a very useful guide. Saved me from long waiting in queues. It helped me plan my day well and informed me accurately about each ride.

    You'd Be Crazy To Go To Orlando without This Book

    I just purchased this book and after looking through it have already, changed my plans for visiting Orlando. The trip's focus now will cater more to my family's desires than packages offered by agencies and will also save us substantial amount of money. I'm confident that a more in depth read will save us much more money and make the trip a more pleasurable experience.
