I was really excited to get the guidebook, but felt cheated that all the charts and helpful pages for touring were formatted wrong making them bigger than the nook page. You could only see the center of the lists and comparison charts. Lots of helpful informaion for a Disney Vacstion, but stick to the paperback until it's fixed or you will just be flustrated.

The maps and pictures cannot be formatted. They get cutoff and appear about the words on the page. I have tried to view this in my Nook, Nook for PC and Nook for Android. Please fix the format as this is basically a waste on the Nook.

The "must-have" companion for anyone that visits wdw. For anyone that is having a problem with the maps....if you have the nook color or tablet (or any touchscreen device) double-tap the map or chart to zoom in and then use standard pinch-zoom and fingerslide to navigate. Enjoy!

Our family (2 adults, 4 children)has been to Disney a few times and on our last visit we took the advice from the book....it was the best trip yet!! We asked for a specific building at our resort, which they suggested for ease of buses, and it worked like a charm!! We also followed the touring plans and I swear we WALKED on to numerous rides, sometimes riding two times without even getting off!! We are going again next summer, so I wanted to start planning & checking for new suggestions. Last time we visited it was a slower time of year, but this time going in the busy season, I would NOT go without a plan & checking the book first! Excellent resource!!! Highly, highly recommend!!

Last year I bought the 2011 version and loved it so much I had to buy the 2012. But this time I bought the E-book, personally I prefer having the good old fashion book so I can make notes and tab pages since it is really a reference book. You really get your monies worth because its like over 700 pages. I have the Ebook but am seriously considering getting the paperback as well. Great info!! love it!!

I am really glad I read this book while we were still in the planning stages of our Disney vacation. It provided lots of great information to make planning easier. We already have all of our tickets, room and dining reservations and are now looking forward to an awesome disney world vacation.

The content is great & the book is filled with useful information. However, I wish I'd spent my money on the hard copy. The book is not formatted properly for the nook & pictures, charts, & graphs are cut off. The content in many would be extremely helpful but they're completely useless in this version since you can't see them. I'm incredibly disappointed over the loss of this content.

The books was not formatted to fit the Nook nor iPad especially, when trying to look at graphs or maps. Poor design, they need to fix it first.

Happy with the guide and the info, however the charts and diagrams are cut off. Keep in mind I am using the ipad app, so that could be it.

I used the Unofficial Guide to WDW for our 2009 and 2010 trips to WDW, and can honestly say this is the only book that I will be buying for our trip next year. The information is given from an upbiased perspective and is geared towards helping families of all types get the most out of their experiences in and around WDW. Their touring plans have proven themselves to me and help us have stress-free, fabulous days. I love their enthusiasm and sincere approach. I am sure this will be another well-read and studies book in my collection!

There is tons of up to date info in this book. The Tour Planning Guide is extremely helpful. Learned that there is an app for your iphone on wait times for all the Disney rides! Provides info on other Orlando area parks too.

The content is great. I wish I had purchased a paper edition instead of the ebook. I ended up getting it from the library and it is much more enjoyable to leaf through. I prefer to jump around from section to section, hard to do with an ebook. Good content just get the paper book.

I bought the 2011 version of this book and I pretty much read it front to back (ok I did skip the cruise part since I wasn't planning a cruise). I thoroughly enjoyed it because it gave visitor opinions on different topics whether it was good, bad or ugly! The touring plans are a god send! My mom and I were down in early August and we waited no longer than 15 minutes for any ride. This is also when the crowd levels are 8 or 9 out of 10. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who plans on visiting Disney in the near future! As a side note, anyone visiting Disney and going to Hollywood Studios, ya GOTTA rid Star Tours! By far the best ride down there!! :-D
