When I was planning our first trip to Disney World, I scoured the shelves of Barnes and Nobles looking for the best book to help me plan. I spent hours (literally) reading and studying the books that they had there. And this one was my FAVORITE because it is bright, packed full of information, and has TONS of pictures. So, I bought it.
The book is written for Kids and has comments BY kids on rides and stuff to do in the parks. Each ride or show is reviewed and there is generally a note from a child about what they thought of the ride as well. The rides are “graded” to tell you which ones are the best and should not be missed and which ones are a good option if you have extra time. The book also gives warnings if a ride is "scary, dark, rough, loud or wet"...which definately helps when you have little ones. Also, to help you plan, the book tells you which ones have the magic pass option and tons of other tips.
There are strategies to get the most done in the parks with the least amount of time. And if inclined, there is even an autograph section that you can have the characters sign in :0)
If you have kids and are planning your first Disney world trip, get this book! It is worth every penny!
