I tend to do a lot of research before any big event in my life, be it my wedding, birth of a child or big vacation. Before going on our first family vacation, which also happened to be my first cruise, I even researched which travel guides would be the best resources to further plan my vacation. I came across the PassPorter series of travel guides.
Since we were only spending one day in the Disney parks, I checked a few titles out at the library. But we were going on a 7-night Disney Cruise and I wanted to know all the details ahead of time so I purchased the PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call. I was not disappointed! This book completely fed my thirst for knowledge and details for planning.
These books are constantly being updated with new information as the Disney parks and even cruise itineraries are constantly changing. No trip will ever be the same! These guidebooks do a great job of telling you what to look for, plan for, and what to expect. Of course, you don't need a guidebook to enjoy a trip somewhere...but with careful planning and attention to detail you can make it a trip of a lifetime!
I found the PassPorter guide to Disney Cruise Line to be accurate, up to date, full of detail and tips that I did not find anywhere else. It gave great insight to these specific locations and I would recommend these titles to anyone looking to plan a magical vacation!
