Product Description

Review

"Indispensable" --The New York Times "If you're looking for a reliable guidebook, the leader is the Unofficial series." --The Mail (London) "A Tourist's Best Friend!" --Chicago Sun-Times "I've been recommending Unofficial Guides to Walt Disney World for years." --Disney Babies Blog "I would never plan a trip to WDW without an updated (current year) copy of the Unofficial Guide. It's pages are dripping with golden strands of priceless information: presented from all sides, giving the big picture, and allowing me to make informed decisions about my vacation minutes and money. But the #1 reason I always choose the UG over other guides is for the guaranteed entertainment and giggles! The wit and tongue-in-cheek humor is so refreshing that it makes me feel like my vacation begins the moment I crack open the cover on a fresh copy." -- A Knoxville, TN reader

About the Author

Bob Sehlinger , a Lowell Thomas Award-winning journalist, is best known as the creator and producer of The Unofficial Guide series.

He is credited with being the first to apply research techniques from the fields of operations research and statistics to travel guides. Among other projects, he was able to develop mathematical models that could save theme park patrons more than three hours of standing in line in a single day.

He is the founder and co-owner of Keen Communications, a book publishing company that includes Menasha Ridge Press, Clerisy Press, and Wilderness Press. The author of 27 books, Sehlinger is a past president of the Publishers Association of the South, and he has served at the invitation of the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Information Service on educational missions for publishers in Hungary, Romania, and Russia. He lives in Birmingham, AL.

A lifelong Disney theme park fan, Len Testa co-authors The Unofficial Guides to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Britain's Best Days Out. In grad school, Len's master's thesis described new computer techniques for generating efficient theme park touring plans, for which Len was awarded a U.S. patent.

These days, Len leads the team at TouringPlans.com, the website and research arm of The Unofficial Guides. Len has stayed at every Disney hotel, experienced every Disney ride, and eaten at every Disney restaurant and food cart in the U.S. When he's not at a Disney theme park, Len lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, in a mid-century modern house whose kitchen was custom-built after one of Space Mountain's post-show scenes.

This book was packed full of information but I was looking for a book to plan a trip to Walt Disney World, not any other parks. It is very bulky and it includes information on all Orlando theme parks so there was a lot of useless information in there for me. If you are planning a trip to the Orlando area and are planning on visiting multiple theme parks, this is a great guide. If you are looking for a guide that is specifically for Disney World, there is a better guide out there for that.

This one question will ring through your mind some 100 ( or less) pages into this several-hundred page guidebook. Detailed, densely pack with info........it'll give pause to anyone thinking a trip to Disneyworld just involves showing up at the gate.
But the whole purpose of the book and the info therein is to give you insight into the vast array of options and opportunities ( and pitfalls) that Disney ( and Universal) offers. It's the array of possibilities, and the fact that 10's of thousands of other guests are vying for the very same things that frustrates/stymies any other guest to the resorts.
The book offers not only info and insight, but touring plans they claim will maximize your enjoyment, and minimize the drawbacks you'll experience.
Aside from anything else therein, the claim that only 2% of the people that visit the area are aware of the info the book has......that's 2 out of every 100 people, means it offers a sobering edge to allow you more enjoyment.
Make no mistake......there's a LOT of info here.......it is quite intimidating. Don't buy this book a week before you leave on the trip and expect to get more than a few basic ideas from it.
Instead, if you are planning months in advance, taking the time to read it through, several times, can benefit your vacation.

The best Disney guide I bought so far.

Like many people I bought this book and a few others like the Birnbaum Guide. Well in the end my son was the only one really looking at the Birnbaum Guide because of the cute images but everyone else in the family quickly realized that the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World was the most complete one, the easiest to read and oh my god it does contain a lot of info.

I have to admin that this book was a lot easier to read that I realized. I was afraid that due to it`s size that it would be "too much" but absolutely not. On my next Disney trip I am buying this book again and this time I will only buy this one and not spend my hard earn money on any other books.

Way to thick for ease of read and/or packing with while going to DisneyWorld. The authors are like they are running an "amazing race" and trying to win a MILLION DOLLARS! Worried about short-cuts and ways to get the number of things done in a short period of time. Slow down, take time to enjoy, relax, it is vacation, after all. Would not recommend for a read. There are better options that are easy to carry with you in order to look up ideas. Didn't even pack this with us to go! Having said that, a great read start-to-finish for before hand and creating your own (not-insane) plan.

This book is thicker then I thought. It makes sense since it 's been in circulation for a number of years. I've only had the book for a week now but what I did read was great tips for our trip to Disney in November. This book came highly recommended I see why as I go through the areas of interest.

This book was just too much for me. WAYYYY too much reading in my opinion. I was already overwhelmed by planning my trip and just the sheer size of this book was intimidating. I know others love it. It just wasn't the book for me.

2nd guide bought from this author cannot live without it. Used it 7 yrs ago and worked out great. Followed the advice exactly and was never disappointed. Follow the suggested maps and times for rides. You think, nahhh, I don't believe it, but we saw everything in the exact time as timed from the advice from the book. If its your first time, or 5th time going to Disney, you need this book!!

As always the Unofficial Guide is the best Disney World reference on the market. I have used their guides for every trip to the Disney World parks since the mid 90's. A must to review if you are considering a vacation to the land of the mouse
