Review

"If you're looking for a reliable guidebook, the leader is the Unofficial series." --The Mail (London) "A Tourist's Best Friend!" --Chicago Sun-Times "Indispensable" --The New York Times

About the Author

Bob Sehlinger, a Lowell Thomas Award-winning journalist, is best known as the creator and producer of The Unofficial Guide series. He is credited with being the first to apply research techniques from the fields of operations research and statistics to travel guides. Among other projects, he was able to develop mathematical models that could save theme park patrons more than three hours of standing in queue in a single day. Bob Sehlinger is founder and co-owner of Keen Communications, a book publishing company that includes Menasha Ridge Press, Clerisy Press, and Wilderness Press. The author of 27 books, Sehlinger is a past president of the Publishers Association of the South, and has served at the invitation of the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Information Service on educational missions for publishers in Hungary, Romania, and Russia. ------- A lifelong Disney theme park fan, Len Testa co-authors The Unofficial Guides to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Britain's Best Days Out. In grad school, Len's master's thesis described new computer techniques for generating efficient theme park touring plans, for which Len was awarded a U.S. patent. These days, Len leads the team at TouringPlans.com, the website and research arm of The Unofficial Guides. Len has stayed at every Disney hotel, experienced every Disney ride, and eaten at every Disney restaurant and food cart in the U.S. When he's not at a Disney theme park, Len lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, in a mid-century modern house whose kitchen was custom-built after one of Space Mountain's post-show scenes.

As ever, absolutely superb. If you are even only considering going to Walt Disney World this is money well spent. We are on our 4th copy and consider it an essential purchase for every trip we make.

My only complaint would be that whilst the paper copy is bulky and relatively heavy, it is simply the better format to have the book in for referencing content and reading it. This isn't a novel - it is laid out very carefully with lots of extra bits and pieces. The kindle version is ugly and difficult to navigate and loses much of the charm of the printed copy. I have to confess, I always read our previous paper copies virtually from cover to cover, even though much is the same from year to year. With the Kindle version however, I just haven't done that, I am treating it as more of a reference to have with me when in the parks. That's a shame for me personally, but nothing against the content. Having said that, it is easier to carry and in some ways is easier to find what you want.

This book covers absolutely every aspect of a DISNEY Holiday in Florida. It does
only cover the Disney Parks, i.e. not Universal, Seaworld etc etc but the depth of information and quality of tips certainly makes this book excellent value for money. Particularly of use are the pre-planned Park visit Itineries. Using these actualy does save hours. The only thing I would say is that I bought the book too late. Yu need to buy this book at least two months prior to travelling to get the most out of the tme you are actually there but is equally useful in helping you plan and book your trip. So buy it before you book is my advice.

I originally received this book in 1997 as a "Good luck in Disney with a 3 year old" gift. A friend of mine, who thought I was insane by taking my 3yo alone, gave it to me. She figured if I was going to go, hopefully this will help me come back alive. It has since become my bible for any information I need regarding "the World".
My partner and I just returned from a four day trip. Two adults and none of our 4 children (combo of step and bio kids) were on this trip. We are taking the kids in July and wanted to enjoy and explore WDW through the eyes of adults. I broke out with the old version of the book (and have since bought the new one) and started going over the "Touring Plan for Adults travelling without small children" whereever I could find one in the book. These worked wonderfully. We took full advantage of early entry days and were done with all the attractions we wanted to see without the little ones by 12 or 2pm depending on which park. The rest of the day was ours to enjoy. The longest we waited on line was at 6pm in Epcot for Test Track only because the line broke down 3 times during our wait.
I imagined many of the restaurants remained the same, so we reveiwed these together and made selections based on location, price, and the book's recommendation of the food. This worked like a charm for us. We were able to time dinner with the closing of parks and firework shows, parades, etc.
I am a planner. I love to know what I am doing each moment. With WDW you have to plan ahead. To just go on a "whim" and dawdle from attraction to attraction will certainly leave some unhappy members in your party as the book suggests. My partner does not like to plan. She hates it actually.

If there is anything you wanted to know about Walt Disney World you will find it here. The only criticism might be that it is simply too comprehensive at over 850 pages but it is very well structured so you can skip the bits that don't interest you. Bob Sehlinger has been producing these independent guides for years and as they are not expensive I tend to buy one each time I go to WDW (about every 4-5 years) as quite a bit changes. The Touring Plans are great - explaining the best way to visit each park to maximise what you go on in the time available by prioritising the rides that get busy. They always save hours of queuing though they do require a degree of regimentation which will not be acceptable to everyone. My only gripe is that the "Crowd Calendar" which is a very detailed on-line guide to the crowd level you can expect in each park each day is still charged extra though guide owners do get a discount.

It is now 3 years since we went to WDW, Florida and our copy of The Unofficial Guide to WDW 2001 has been back there with friends several times. We're now planning a new visit ourselves and will be using the new 2004 guide to help us.
This book saved us so much time, tears and tantrums. By reading up beforehand we arrived in Florida with an idea of what we wanted to see in each park (including Universal Sudios, Islands of Adventure and Seaworld), which days to visit, which rides to rush for, which ones to leave until later, where to eat, when to wake up, where to park ...
We adapted the plans according to our personal wish-lists and made fantastic use of FastPasses to fill our Park days to the full. If we did have to queue for a while it was a chance to check up on alternatives in the Guide and often got us chatting with other families who were also clutching their copies!
Using the tips we felt very pleased with ourselves when we'd packed in 6 consecutive trips on the kids' favourite (Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at MK) with a total of 15 minutes queueing!!
Thanks to the book we also took full advantage of the Switching Off/Baby Swap Scheme on rides like Men In Black Alien Attack at Universal Studios. Without this book we'd never have known about this scheme and a parent would have had to wait outside with our toddler and miss the ride - instead the whole family stayed together and our boys got to ride twice!
I wish this guide existed for all theme parks, it would save so much time. The first time we went to Alton Towers and Legoland in the UK we hadn't got a clue how to tackle the parks and went on the nearest rides first. By the time we found the popular rides, the queues were huge and we either queued for ages or went elsewhere ...
