Wow, what a great book this is. I love the way that this book is almost like a journal or organizer. It has ring clips where you can arrange pages the way you want and take out stuff you don't really need. I took this book with me on my last trip to Disney World. It had spots for me to record all my dining reservations, hotel reservations. It also had places to hold the park maps and other small paperwork I needed for the trip. It also has spots for ID cards or credit cards, but I didn't use these because if I lost the book, I'd lose those too.
To really appreciate this book, you really have to spend a lot of time reading it as there is so much information and details to take in. For the new Disney fan, it can be a bit much at first. I love all the details in though that you can pretty much find any information about anything in or around Disney World. The book tells you all about each resort, their rooms and what ammenities are included. There are also maps of each of the resorts resort and room layouts as well as prices for the different times of the year.
Everything in the book is rated. The resorts are rated. Readers ratings are included so you get a broad sampling included in the rating.
Each park has it's own section too. All the rides and attractions are listed, described and rated. There are suggested itineraries for touring each park and you can choose how much time you have, if you have kids or if it's just adults. There is a whole lot of information on places where you eat with descriptions, ratings and there is a section that discusses the new Disney Dining Plan. If you are celebrating something special like an anniversary, birthday or wedding, there is information on how to make the event more special. There are special behind-the-scenes tours also described and their prices listed. There are so many features it's hard to list them all.
I think for the price, all the information contained within this book is a great asset, whether you are new at planning a Disney vacation on you have been multiple times.
