The overwhelming crush of a mid-summer vaction to Walt Disney World vacation began in the travel aisle of the local bookstore as I tried to figure out how to not spend my entire vacation budget looking for the *best* guide book to help me plan our family trip. This handy guide is a stand-out in a saturated market because it packs useful information and a light-weight and portable organizer into one tidy, and relatively inexpesive package.
The books layout is easy to understand, and is designed to be an on-the-spot guide while touring the parks as well as resource for pre-trip planning. It can be read cover to cover, or items of particular intrest are easy to find based on the location, name, or type of activity. The best feature is envelope style pages in the back that are ready to capture and hold hotel printouts, maps, tickets and other items necessary to make your trip a success. Each page is pre-printed for you to fill in the details of your trip, from arrival to the final moments you can breakdown each event by time, place and reservation number. Everyday has extra lines to incorporate the "must dos" that each traveler has, so you won't miss a thing! The planner even includes fun and colorful stickers to personalize the pages and get you into the Disney mood.
Perhaps the best feature is the available companion website that helps you keep up-to-the-minute on the park hours, changes, and any new features that Disney has unveiled since the book was printed.
All around, the book as been a great resource and will slide right into my bag for the trip to keep working for me on the trip.....off we go!
