About this book
The size and scope of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is enough to make the most seasoned traveler shiver. Disney has packed four major theme parks and 22 resort hotels into those fabled 47 Florida square miles. With all those choices, how can an everyday Mom and Pop hope to deliver a family vacation to remember? "Planning!" say Walt Disney World vacation veterans Jennifer and Dave Marx. "The vast Walt Disney World complex is not designed for procrastinators or last-minute travelers. Without a plan, a Disney vacation is nowhere near as much fun, and can quickly sink a family’s finances. A plan and a budget will keep your vacation happily afloat." The Marxes put their advice where it could help others with their award-winning travel guide, PassPorter's® Walt Disney World® 2016: The unique travel guide, planner, organizer, journal, and keepsake! The Marxes have been honing their advice, expanding their coverage, upgrading the book's features, and delighting readers in 18 editions published over the past 17 years. Not content to write "just" another guide, the authors continue where other guides leave off. In one neat, spiral-bound package they’ve combined a 362-page guide with 14 organizer "PassPockets," creating a proven planning system for the perfect vacation. What do you do with a PassPocket? Write your vacation itinerary on the front of each pocket before you go, store maps, brochures, passes, and receipts inside the pocket while you’re there, and record your memories and expenses on the back to review when you return home! Printed front-and-back with fill-in-the-blank sections for itineraries, To-Do lists, notes, expenses, meals, photos taken, and cherished memories, PassPockets make organized travel a snap! One pocket is dedicated to travel plans, another pocket is for lodging, ten one-a-day pockets are dedicated to vacation fun, another pocket is for an extra day or a special event, and a final pocket saves special memories and creates a trip report. Although the PassPockets put PassPorter's® Walt Disney World® 2016 in a league by itself, the travel guide section easily stands on its own. The Disney-owned resort hotels get special attention, including detailed maps, color photos, and room layouts. "Visitors can spend more on lodging than they do at the theme parks," Jennifer notes,"so we dedicate at least four pages to every resort hotel owned and operated by Disney. You can change your mind about a ride, but your lodging decision sticks with you for your entire visit." The theme parks also get the full PassPorter treatment. Each of the four major parks -- Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom -- gets a detailed layout, complete with full-color fold-out maps and a concise description of every ride and attraction. Disney’s two water parks, the Downtown Disney dining and shopping complex, ESPN Wide World of Sports, the Disney Vacation Club and the Disney Cruise Line are covered, too. Meal times are fun times at Walt Disney World, and with over 300 dining options, the PassPorter team had its work cut out for them. Special worksheets, average meal costs for every restaurant, and other features help planners make the most of Disney's pay-one-price Disney Dining Plan. Every full-service restaurant on Disney property is rated and reviewed, as well as every counter-service eatery in the parks. "We give you a good taste of every restaurant and still keep it concise, which is important in a book people carry with them all day," says Dave, who loves to eat and cook. "We also give a complete rundown on Disney’s Character Meals, where Mickey, Peter Pan, or Pooh Bear pay a visit to every table. Believe me; grown-ups love this just as much as the kids!" The entire Marx family puts their mark on this guide. Eleven-year-old Alexander Marx and his 23-year-old sister Allison Cerel Marx have rated every attraction at every park, starting with their "A-OK!" ratings for younger kids and moving up, as they've grown, to ToddlerTips, KidTips, Tween Tips, and Teen Tips. These are accompanied by age-appropriateness ratings for park attractions from their parents, giving parents an extra heads up on what attractions are suited to their kids. Allison began sharing her kid’s perspective in PassPorter when she was seven, and Alexander started contributing nearly from conception, "visiting" often during Mom's pregnancy and rounding-out his parents understanding of travel with kids of all ages and stages. Every map, photo, chart, illustration, and worksheet is in full color on glossy stock, with additional use of color to highlight important points, such as items that are new or have changed at Walt Disney World since the publication of the previous edition. So when the magic of Walt Disney World beckons, pick up a copy of the award-winning PassPorter's® Walt Disney World® 2016 travel guide. Not only will you discover Walt Disney World through the eyes of four seasoned fans, but you’ll be more organized and better budgeted than you ever thought possible.

    Wonderful Series but 2017 Edition Has Printing Flaws

    I actually love the "Unofficial Guide" series but I just received my copy of the 2017 edition for WDW and noticed that the clip out Touring Plans at the back of the book are using last years maps with this year's touring plans. In other words, the numbers on the touring plans do not match the numbers on the maps. It may just be my copy or it might be a more serious problem with the proofs or the printers. If this gets fixed, I would give this 5+ stars. I only rated 2 stars to get attention.The "Unofficial Guide" series is not only well research but written with a refreshing candor and sense of humor that one wishes were in other guides. The centerpiece of the series devoted to theme parks is the Touring Plan, which prescribes the order of rides and attractions to visit in order to maximize your enjoyment of the park by minimizing waiting in lines. The authors also describe in great detail not just the rides, attractions, fright potential, and guest feedback... 2/5 Pen (Milwaukee) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Awesome book! Misprinted Copy was replaced!

    UPDATE: My original review included information about major publishing errors (esp the maps) from the first printing (I ordered this book a few days before it mailed out for release). I emailed the publisher to let them know about the errors. They were already working on a corrected copy and I was able to send mine back and exchange it for the corrected copy. Below is my review minus the cons of the printing errors and with a new star rating to match my updated copy. I also highly recommend their website! It sends me email reminders when my planning deadlines come up and keeps track of my reservations. It's awesome!My husband and I used the 2007 edition of this book to plan our honeymoon and it was extremely helpful and a wonderful guidebook. We have been 3 times since then and are approaching our 10 year anniversary in 2017. Of course, we use these books every time. Our last trip was in 2013 and a lot has changed.

    Don't bother - unless you want to ENJOY your trip :-)

    20 years ago, I'd have thought a book on How To Enjoy A Theme Park was the stupidest thing ever. I mean, I grew up near such a park, and you didn't plan - you just *went*. Ideally on a day when you thought it wouldn't be too overcrowded or too miserably hot, but you went, you walked, you waited a bit in a few lines, you ate too much junk food, then you went home.The Disney World of the 21st century changes all that. We'd visited it before, during "off season" (something that no longer exists), and enjoyed ourseives by doing what we felt like without needing to plan. That doesn't work any more.There are so many things to do, the lines are so crazy, the parks have so many different attractions, there are so many special events, that if you show up and expect to have a good time, you're NOT playing the odds.

    3/5 Copwriter (Kennewick, Washington) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Dark Side of Disney (Kindle Edition) There isn't a whole lot of substance here. The author and a couple of acquaintances worked briefly at Disney World, and spent just about as much time pretending they worked there, sneaking around behind the scenes. They tell a few "secrets," but it is mostly tales of their exploits and low-intensity pranking. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 20, 2016

    Interesting

    3/5 Kindle Customer (Upstate, New York) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Dark Side of Disney (Kindle Edition) This books was fun, quick read but it was nothing really special. Parts of it were interesting and parts of it were just silly. The majority of the tips are illegal activities that can get you arrested and/or banned from Disney parks for life(they do remember). If you are a thrill seeker and get off on breaking the law or testing the limits this book would be to your liking. Since I like to play by the rules and not get in trouble, these were not really that helpful tips for me. However, it was good to learn about the ticket scams (people selling discount tickets that turn out to be no good) and fun to learn about the underground tunnels (shocked at how easy it is to walk around down there without security noticing). Overall, interesting for the sake of learning about some of the tips/facts but none I found helpful for me.

    This is a fun documentory to get a fun view of the park

    4/5 Bryce - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Ultimate Walt Disney World (Amazon Video) This is a fun documentory to get a fun view of the park. It isn't entirely accurate as some attractions have changed over time and this was filmed a while back, but most of it is still applicable. This film also only touches on a few highlights of the hundreds of things to do at DW. But what can you expect out of 50 minutes? If you want a better documentory, save up, plan a trip, and have fun with your family at DW!! It brought back great memories of my last visit to the park, and got my wife excited to go back again someday. We have a small vacation savings that will take us there again years down the road when our kids are a bit older.
