Book Description

18 Oct 2012
Orlando has never been more enticing, with new attractions at all the main theme parks and lots of additional development elsewhere, with new hotels, restaurants, dinner shows, nightlife and much, much more. With this, the 18th edition of the UK's best-selling travel guide, we have all the lowdown on everything of offer, the latest updates and the best way to 'do it all' in this Central Florida wonderland. There really is no other place anywhere in the world quite like it, but it requires a fair bit of planning and preparation, and the Brit Guide is your best friend when it comes to getting the very best for your holiday money here. We have been visiting and writing about it for years and, as we live right here - about five minutes from Walt Disney World! - no-one can provide British visitors with better insight and more valuable advice. We firmly believe this is the most exciting destination on earth, but it does make some serious demands on your time/wallet/patience, hence the need to your 'homework' in advance and take us with you at all times. We hate the idea of people spending their hard-earned cash on a trip to Orlando and not getting full value for it, so much of what we do is very much the tourist's eye view of things, and not the glossy brochure version. This year there is a whole new Fantasyland to explore at Disney's Magic Kingdom; fabulous new attractions at Universal Orlando - home of the great Harry Potter experience - SeaWorld, Legoland Florida and the Kennedy Space Center. We have added a whole section on the amazing Christmas season in Orlando, and we have fully updated the chapters on Hotels, Driving, Shopping and Dining Out. It all adds up to a thrilling year in store in the Place That Walt Built. Just make sure you take us with you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version not recommended 9 Jan 2013
By Gracie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had the 2010 hard copy of this book for our first visit to Disney. It was invaluable in planning our visit and getting the most of our holiday. We are going back to Disney again this year and after booking the tickets I ordered an updated copy for my kindle. The guide is as brilliant as ever. It really helps you with planning your visit. However, it is impossible to read the maps on the kindle version. I have nothing wrong with my eyesight and I cannot read the place names on any of the maps even when magnified. This is a major drawback to the kindle version as the maps are needed to find your way around the massive parks and to get a sense of where everything is.
I would thoroughly recommend this book for anyone visiting Florida but buy the hard copy and not the kindle version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential purchase! 23 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw the reviews for the 2012 version of this book and as we are planning a dream holiday to Florida next year wanted to find out as much information as possible to be as prepared as we can be. Putting it simply, this book has it all! Everything from ride queue times to discounts, insider tips, bus routes and at over 300 pages long, it is unbelievable value. My book arrived yesterday and my wife and I spent the whole evening alternating between giggling at the delights in store for us and discussing how to make further cost savings, of which this book has many suggestions.

All in all, a totally essential purchase.

This book is good but there is too much information on the rest of Orlando if Disney is your main destination. I prefer the style of The unofficial guide to Disney World.
