5.0 out of 5 stars My 8 Year Old Won't Put it Down! 18 Feb 2011
By Kelly J Raudenbush - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had borrowed a previous version from our local library a few years back and thought it wasn't worth purchasing -- just a bunch of quotes from random kids with their suggestions and comments about rides, etc. Here we are 2 weeks today since we got back from Disney World, and my son is still carrying this book around. Yup. He took it to the grocery store today and was reading it in the cart. Yesterday, he took it to Bingo night at school in case he got bored (thankfully, he didn't. But, we were prepared just in case). He loves this book. And, yes, it's pretty much just a collection of thoughts and suggestions from random kids around the country. But, my son (8) loves those random thoughts. Before we went to Disney, he read the tips and made notes about what to make sure he did (like find "PUSH" the robot in Tomorrowland). Since then, he still reads them over and over and tells me, "Hey mom, next time we go, we have to make sure we do this...." and then proceeds to tell me what little Suzy from GA said every kid should do. The best part of the book? There are maybe a dozen pages in the back for him to fill out himself -- a packing list, lists of things he doesn't want to miss, etc. for before the trip. Then, there are 4 pages for him to share his own tips. What could be more exciting than this? He very thoughtfully wrote his name and age and then gave his own tips about his favorite restaurant, rides, resorts, etc. Now, it's my job to send it in to the publisher and beg them to publish something from him in the next edition. Tracie A. Cook, if you are out there, please, please put something from my boy in the next edition. I promise to send you a Mickey shaped rice krispie treat on our next visit if you do....

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Book! 30 Aug 2010
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a parent, I find it's difficult to get my kids to believe me when I try to show them something I think they'd like. Because I'm ancient (at 42), I of course have no idea, per my daughter Katie, what's hip or trendy or fun. I suppose using words like "hip", "trendy" and "fun" proves her point...but I digress.

Anyways, I found a great book that will help prove to Katie that my ideas about WDW aren't completely off base. Kid Tips for Walt Disney World: Touring Advice by Kids for Kids is a collection of advice given by kids ranging from 7 to 15 years old suggesting things to do at the parks and resorts. Tracie Cook, a Michigan-based travel writer and teacher, received over 8,000 suggestions and whittled them down to 130 pages of helpful hints like this (one of Alex's favorites):

Make a call to another world. There's a cool looking phone booth by Astro Orbiter. It kind of looks like a rocket. Go inside and press the buttons. There are a ton of funny phone messages.

Luke, age 11, Jonesborough, TN

What's nice about this book is that, being written for the most part by kids, the hints use easily understood language. However, Cook doesn't change spelling for words which have different spelling in the United Kingdom and Canada; i.e. favourite versus favorite. That is a bit distracting for some readers but is also an opportunity for parents to talk about language diversity if they choose.

On the parent side, I liked the trip planner section at the end of the book, as it helps kids focus on what they are interested in doing before their trip. However, the spaces to write in are very small, so it may be difficult for younger kids to fit their plans in. I also loved the "lost card," which directs kids who get separated from their parents to find a cast member and show them the card. The card has space for the child's name, resort and parent's cell numbers. As lost children can get so worried about their parents they forget cell numbers (especially an area code), having the number in writing can save a lot of time in reuniting child and parents.

But, for me, my favorite part of the book was the genuine caring the kids showed in their suggestions. My favorite:

A small light can come in handy. Some of the rides at Disney are in the dark. Bring a little flashlight to wear around your neck if you are afraid.

Kent, age 7, Las Vegas, NV

Isn't that what WDW is all about? The idea of total strangers helping each other is unusual in the "real" world, but is blessedly common at Walt Disney World. I only wish it would happen in the real world more often...

5.0 out of 5 stars I was hooked... 26 Sep 2010
By Lisa M. Battista - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was hooked on this book from the start. If you want to get your children involved in planning your Walt Disney World vacation, this is the travel guide to use. Information and advice about the Disney world theme parks, attractions, and dining are shared from contributors kids can relate to - other kids! Each tip is written from a child's perspective and is usually two to three sentences long so it's an easy read. You'll be surprised how much useful and key information gets packed into each tip and how well the kids convey a sense of each attraction.

There are no dry facts here; instead you'll find lots of humor. For example, one kid tipster writes the following about 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian, "The step-sisters are the funniest characters I have ever met. If you have a little brother that irritates you, tell the step-sisters that he will marry one of them. It's so funny!" Where else will you get that kind of advice? The best part is it's true. The step-sisters steal the show at 1900 Park Fare.

Parents will also enjoy reading a different take on Disney World. See which parks and attractions are kid-favorites and read about which aspects of the rides kids enjoy the most. The trip planning sheets at the end of the book are a great way to get your children involved in planning your family's vacation without being overwhelming. After reading Kid Tips, they can jot down their must-see attractions and the restaurants they want to try.

This book is a great read for any age.

This book is outstanding, not only do my children enjoy all the tips but my husband and I have learned so much. We are planning our third trip to Disney World and can't wait to go especially with all the new information. I have a son who hates to read and I can not get him to put the book down. Brendan is not only helping with our plans but improving his reading skills, what a WIN WIN. Thank-you!
