Book Description

Jan. 31 2012 Passporter Walt Disney World
The size and scope of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is enough to make the most seasoned traveler shiver. Disney has packed four major theme parks and twenty resort hotels into those fabled 47 Florida square miles. With all those choices, how can an everyday Mom and Pop hope to deliver a family vacation to remember? "Planning!" say Walt Disney World vacation veterans Jennifer and Dave Marx. "The vast Walt Disney World complex is not designed for procrastinators or last-minute travelers. Without a plan, a Disney vacation is nowhere near as much fun, and can quickly sink a family's finances. A plan and a budget will keep your vacation happily afloat". The Marxes put their advice where it could help others with their award-winning travel guide, "PassPorter's[registered] Walt Disney World[registered] 2012": The unique travel guide, planner, organizer, journal, and keepsake! The Marxes have been honing their advice, expanding their coverage, upgrading the book's features, and delighting readers in 14 editions published over the past 13 years. One popular aspect of this 14th edition are the fun "KidTips", "TweenTips" and "TeenTips" by 19-year-old co-author Allison Cerel Marx, Dave's daughter, who has been providing a kid's perspective in "PassPorter" since she was seven. Allie's tips for the attractions are a big help to kids and parents alike. Allie also rates every attraction at every park with her "A-OK!" ratings for even younger kids, and Allie's young brother Alexander contributes his ToddlerTips. These are accompanied by age-appropriateness ratings for park attractions from their parents, giving parents an extra heads up on what attractions are suited to their kids. Every map, photo, chart, illustration, and worksheet is in full color on glossy stock, with additional use of color to highlight important points, such as items that are new or have changed at Walt Disney World since the publication of the previous edition. So when the magic of Walt Disney World beckons, pick up a copy of the award-winning "PassPorter's[registered] Walt Disney World[registered] 2012 Travel Guide". Not only will you discover Walt Disney World through the eyes of four seasoned fans, but you'll be more organized and better budgeted than you ever thought possible.

One of our dream as parents is to bring our kids to Florida in vacation. Not for a week or two but more in the line of a whole month of fun visiting various theme parks including Walt Disney World. Last time my husband and I went it was our honeymoon and let me tell you that by what I am discovering these days via videos of Disney Imagineering and the book I am presenting you today, a lot have changed since then!

So you want to plan a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. But you feel a bit overwhelmed with all the possibilities and fun things to do. No problem. Introducing the PassPorter's Walt Disney World which is a travel guide that will help you plan and organize your discovery of this famous theme park. I know from experience that we enjoy our trips better when I plan in advance. Not everyone are like this but let me remind you that in the case of Walt Disney World, you do not want to miss anything while you are there. So I would suggest that you plan it in advance...

This full color travel guide will be a life saving tool for you and your family. Inside you will find fourteen pockets that will allow you to keep plans, maps, and memories in one place. The book includes everything you need to plan the perfect vacation without having to stress out about forgetting something. Let me give you an idea of the table of content...
Planning Your Adventure - finding information, budgeting, money-saving programs and tips
Getting There - adventure, how to get there and more
Staying in Style - don't want to stay outside Walt Disney World, this section will highlight the various resorts.

3.0 out of 5 stars thoughts from a once loyal reader Feb. 11 2012
By G. Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
I have purchased these books for each of our three trips to WDW. For the most part it is organized and informative. But the buyer should know that the reviews for restaurants haven't changed since I bought the first book 6 years ago. Unless it is a new establishment, it would seem the published ratings stay for good. Also, pages are now glossy. This may sound silly, but they were once thick paper. The paper was better for making notes and changing dates and details as you make your plans. And for me...I find it a waste to have so many pictures of people I could care less about. If you want to keep the book with you as a reference, it just weighs it down. This will probably be the last passporter I buy. But not my last Disney trip!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Hidden Magic planner May 8 2012
By Ed Mortimer - Published on Amazon.com
I used this book about a decade ago to plan a Disney vacation. I thought it was helpful. But for this year I bought this 2012 version along with The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World Planner: A Complete Organizer, Journal, and Keepsake for Your Unforgettable Vacation. I liked the other book better. The two books are similar--for example, they both have storage pockets--but the Hidden Magic one is more thorough.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great Disney book! Jan. 29 2012
By Lizz A. Belle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I have motored through four books about Disney, including Birnbaum (which I recommend IN ADDITION to this book) and this is the very best one I have come across yet. They have so many tips in here I was just making notes out of other books but this one I marked full blown pages. They have so much information in here I was totally blown away. I love the fact that they have a big group of Pass Porters to help keep the books current and add any new little things that might come up. What is so great about this book is that you see what thist family looks like. They have real photos of themselves in the park, as well as many photos contributed by fellow Pass Porters.

The super best thing about this book is that they have average waiting times to get from your resort to each Disney Park, plus Downtown Disney. That is in none of the other books I have come across. The second super best thing about this book is all the journal things you can do to record your trip and having the pockets for various things you will need to hang on to, such as receipts.

My only fault for this book is that they did not mention exactly how claustrophobic Mission Space is. I read that in multiple other things and it is very apparent if you get the WDW vacation DVD from Disney themselves. I realize to some people if they are not claustrophobic they would not understand, but I would think that is something to mention.

However, I do not see that one little niggly point a reason not to get this book. Your family will thank you for how well informed you are. I do also recommend the Birnbaum WDW 2012 book in conjunction to this one, just because there are somethings covered in there that are not covered in this book and vice versa. I also think Birnbaum has some tables that are more helpful than this book. I think if you want to maximize the time you have at "The World" you should get as much knowledge as possible and if you can only get one book, I would definitely say this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best WDW book out there, and Amazon is where to get it. April 20 2012
By Ellen Ricketson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Great book, got one other a few years ago and, although I have been to WDW about 5 times in the last decade (nice to have friends with timeshares) I am able to keep up with the new developments. Going in Sept and PRAY there are motorcarts available since I can't walk. Hate to ask a family member to push me around in a wheelchair. But if it is to be . . .
BTW, what happened to the plump lady who was all over a previous edition I had?

Am now ordering a new one for my brother, who is among our group, from Amazon, as I did my other 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Disney planning guide! Jan. 27 2012
By Lesley J Hurtubise - Published on Amazon.com
I received the 2012 book recently and love it! It has just the right amount of information and I love the tips. Every year more pictures are included and I enjoy seeing all of the happy smiling faces. It brings back memories of my many trips to the World.

One of my favorite features is the Passpockets. I love writing my plans on them and then updating them once I'm on vacation. They are a great organizational tool - and an even better journal of our trip. I go back and reread them when I'm planning another trip. I also like that you can put receipts and mementos in them.

I think this is book is a great guidebook for a wide variety of vacationers. Whether it is your first trip - or your 20th you will find the information and tools to plan a great vacation!
