I love this book, I have used it the past 3 times I have gone to Disney World! Some people say it is negative, because it tells you about lines, and how to go to the park to see the most (you NEED a plan at WDW!). What people may see as negative is realistic. You can't just walk into the park, you need a plan. If you know "these are the rides I want to go on" then you can look in the book, see when the busiest times are, when is the best time to go, and make a plan! I had to wait in very little lines, even for main attractions by following the books guides. Also, we learned how to find out when characters are going to be places and beat the crowds! A travel guide should be realistic and tell you the good and BADs of everything, and this book told us everything!

I am a veteran of several past editions of this book - great resource and planning tool. But, it's a large tome - heavy and hard to carry around so I thought it would be great to have it on my Nook. Unfortunately there are multiple tables and lists of ratings and they are not affected by changing font size. Not only are they wicked (yep - from New England) small, but in the original book these graphics are printed in blue instead of black. That translates to a light gray in the nook book and that makes it even harder to see. Also - I debated about whether the nook book would be as useful as the paper edition.... it really isn't. I've got about 25 pieces of paper and other bookmarks in my 2010 book. When I flip to them I can see immediately what they referred to bc at the top of each page there's a running header with the chapter subject. In the nook book, the running header is the title of the book. I find I have to read several screenshots on either side of the mark to figure out what I bookmarked! Bummer.

This book was a life saver for us. I used the reviews in it to decide on a hotel to stay at, and the reviews of the attractions to decide what we wanted to see at each park. The associated touring plan website was fantastic and I created personalized touring plans for my family for each park we visited. It took the day and times we were attending, the list of attractions we wanted to see and then optimized them to create a plan that told us where to go and when each day in order to minimize the waiting in lines. The plans worked perfectly. Other people were waiting in long line ups but we were waiting no more than 10 minutes for an attraction. I highly recommend this book. We had the greatest family vacation because of it!

I haven't bought the complete book but in the sample, if you double tap on the maps and charts, it brings up the full page chart, which you can scroll and pinch.
