Old fashioned advice - Do a Google search for better info 9 Nov. 2012
By Dad Logic - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a Disneyland travel guide, I highly recommend looking at one of the many other books on Amazon. Although Birnbaum calls itself the official guide, I found the information to be outdated and unhelpful.

My first clue that the information would be outdated was the map on the inside cover. Birnbaum has a cartoon style map of the Disneyland Resort that shows landmarks that have long since been removed (the California Adventure part of the map shows the Bountiful Valley Farm, Golden Gate Bridge, and entry plaza sun even though these items were removed about two years ago).

The advice within the book wasn't spectacular. Some of the guidance includes "be sure to read Disney brochures carefully to learn about the parks" and "ask an employee for help." This common sense info isn't worth the cost of this book.

There are many other guide books on the market that offer big images and great advice, like where the best restaurants are and how to get a good deal. The Birnbaum book is filled with Disneyland press photos and clip art of the Disney characters. It lacks any insightful travel tips and reads like a AAA guidebook from the 1950s.

In short, look elsewhere for quality Disneyland travel advice. This "official guide" leaves a lot to be desired.

Know what you're getting... 26 Dec. 2012
By Corey A. L. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's fairly obvious that to earn the "official" guide moniker, Birnbaums has to agree to not write anything negative. So don't buy this looking for an impartial review of the restaraunts, the rides, or even the third-pary local hotels.

I was particularly disappointed, though, in the very brief coverage of Cars Land. It appears that the writeup was not updated from the 2012 edition. Not even a single picture of what is clearly the premiere draw for Disneyland Resort in 2013.

It's hard to recommend this to anyone unless you're looking for a compact, brief overview of the entire resort. Otherwise, you're much better off purchasing one of the unofficial guides or even just doing some internet research.

Its a brochure, not a book 17 Feb. 2013
By WH - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Due to the minimal number of pages, I consider this to be a brochure - not a book. The author dedicated only a few sentences to the new Cars Land. Very litle information was offered on accommodations.

Love it, with 2 exceptions 24 Mar. 2013

Love Birnbaum's Disneyland books. But they get thinner each year, even though Disneyland has grown in recent years. And the coupons aren't great.
