Product Description


"'Nobody tackling Orlando should be without your absolutely brilliant guide.' Unsolicited reader: C.W. Bedfordshire."

From the Author

It's a highly exciting time for us at the Brit's Guide - and that should mean even better value for our many thousands of readers, both regulars and newcomers to Britain's best-selling travel guide. Not only do we have the all-new, 10th edition of our Orlando book - crammed full of all the necessary up-dates, additional features and new attractions - but we also have a fully interactive website to provide an extra dimension to all that's in store in this amazing part of the world.

So, while you can read up on all the new rides, shows and other features - including a Top 10 of Best Free Attractions, a full Timeline of how Orlando has grown over the last 30 years and a dramatically up-graded Ticket Chart - you can then hop online with us and learn even more in the way of facts, features and up-dates.

With a permanent, year-round base in Orlando, the Brit's Guide team is second to none when it comes to providing all the essential insights and insider info for this vast, complicated but totally thrilling destination. If you've never been to Orlando, you've missed out on the most exciting place on earth; if you have been before, well, there's a whole lot more to explore this time around!

I have been researching and writing on Florida now for 10 years and it still has plenty to excite and intrigue me. Come and find out why in the pages of the Brit's Guide........

5.0 out of 5 stars Going to Orlando, don't leave home without this. 17 Dec 2007
This year will be our fourth trip to Orlando, and this is the fourth edition I've bought in this series. I couldn't be without this book, especially when travelling with four children. It tells you everything you need to know about Orlando and what to do whilst there. As soon as I get the new edition I get out my highlighting pen and mark the tips I find especially relevant to our family, and what we found most helpful was the table showing the busiest and quietest days to visit all the parks, which is always right. I don't bring a novel to read by the pool, I bring this book, and have many friends who do the same.

We're planning our third trip to Orlando and this is the third version of this fabulous book that we've bought - it never disappoints.
Updated every year, with a useful link to a website for more information.
There is so much to do in Orlando, for all ages.
This book means that you don't have to miss out on some of the hidden treasures that you might otherwise never find.
Written by 'normal' people, who've been there and done it!
Funny, sensible, useful to the max.
Don't hesitate to buy and enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant informative book 20 April 2008
We have just come back from our 4th trip to Orlando and this is the first time we have taken a guide book but won't be our last.

The book is funny, readable, packed with information and useful tips. I read it often whilst on our trip to sort out where we should go and what we mustn't miss - it was so helpful. We visited several restaurants that we would't even had known existed without this guide and certainly took on board the advice about getting a fastpass as soon as you could for "Soarin" in Epcot (this frequently ran out by 1.00 pm each day !!)

A really enjoyable well written and interesting guide book - don't go to Walt Disney World without it !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go without this 1 Jun 2008
Was recommended by a friend for our 1st trip to Walt Disney, Orlando. We spend the 1st week following this bible and going to the quietest days for the parks, it worked a dream, and we'd started to think that it wasn't as busy as some people had suggested. 2nd week we just "popped" into Magic Kingdom, on what turned out to be graded as a busy day, and they were right.... people everywhere, and very hectic. We vowed not to stray from the book again!
It makes your trip even more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely cost effective purchase 20 April 2008
Prior to buying this book I'd tried several online info sources and itinerary planners, each and every one of which just sapped my will to live. I commend this book as a quick, handy and accurate reference for prior planning and for during your holiday too. A hefty chunk of the guide is given over to Disney parks - too sickly for my kids - but the rest of it was bang on. The "Brit Tips" are excellent. Highly recommended if you're planning an Orlando holiday and ...... er ..... you're British.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of info = a rather large book 9 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase
I purchased this guide book based on the reviews that it is a wealth of knowledge - they were not wrong! I can see huge benefits of having this book to hand.
However, it's so full of information, that the book is chunky. It's not gigantic, but big enough not to fit in the average handbag and certainly not for pockets. I'll be packing it with me for reading in the hotel but won't be carrying it around!.
