He's done it again
on 21 January 2003
I've recently returned from my seventh trip to Orlando with an eighth in the early stages of planning. Simon Veness's guide has accompanied me on four of them and you can be sure the latest edition will be well-thumbed by the time I come to pack it in my suitcase. From my first trip in 1992 through to my third in 1998, I overlooked "A Brit's Guide" in favour of the usual suspects - Fodor's, Fromer's, et al. Whilst I continue to buy them all (well, I am a guide book junkie), "A Brit's Guide" thoroughly trounces the competition in that it is the only guide written for Brit's by a Brit - an enormous and obvious benefit for the reader, albeit one that passed me by for far too long. Don't make the same mistake!
The 2003 edition is packed with the usual reviews and sound advice. Simon Veness has it all covered: Disney, Universal and everything beyond. For first-timers, the advice on driving, accommodation and the two Orlando airports is invaluable. You simply won't find this stuff in the American guides. These days I use mine as a reference tool, although I can never resist reading from cover to cover when it first arrives - I just love learning about what's new in Orlando.
Simon Veness is the eyes and ears of the Brit in Orlando. If he doesn't know about it, believe me it's a non-event.
