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.

    Great Tips! A Must Purchase for your WDW Trip!

    I am so very happy I purchased this book. We will be traveling to WDW in September 2016 and although I have been to Disney before, many, many things have changed so I needed something that would provided updated, clear information on FastPass+, Advanced Dining Reservations, Hotel Selection and general overall guidance regarding the Disney Parks. I saw this book in store before purchasing on Amazon and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The colors inside of the book are great and I love that they have included pictures with many of their reviews. I also love the coupons that they included in the back of the book. They are going to be a great help when we are there. The tips and tricks that are included are awesome and I plan on using a lot of them when we travel to WDW. If you're taking a Disney Cruise, there is a small section in the back of the book for that as well. I'm not sure how good it is as I haven't looked at it, but just for an FYI.

    This is a great book for kids that will be visiting Disney World.

    This book was not what I expected. I thought it was going to be about things adults could do to increase the amusement of children while visiting Disney World. Instead, this book is for children to increase their own enjoyment of visiting Disney World. The book is for the child to plan their trip, then to take the book with them during the trip. There is a section in the back for them to gather autographs from the characters. I love that it encourages a kid to read! It guides the child in determining what they may enjoy the most during their visit. It also sets the stage for the child to become even more excited about their trip: "10 days before the trip...; 9 days before..." etc.The book is written in a manner that lets the child decide which portion(s) of the book they want to know more about without having to read the book from beginning to end.

    INCLUDED 5+ CLOSED RIDES and Attractions- and didn't mention they were closed

    Big disappointment! It's mid-April 2016 and this book has FIVE major errors in it - six if you count that the Frozen ride hasn't opened yet. If you buy this for your child or grandchild be aware IN ADVANCE that the following rides are closed: Soarin (temporary til at least mid-summer 2016), The Circle of Life (permanent), Captain EO (permanent), Lights, Motors, Action Stunt Show (permanent) Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area (permanent).They also devote an entire page to Disney Quest which is scheduled to close this year. We were there in Aug. 2015 and many of the rides and games had already been removed. Unless Disney reconsidered and devoted serious money to improving Disney Quest Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for Buccaneer Gold, Virtual Jungle Cruise and CyberSpace Mountain have all been closed permanently as of late summer 2015. I've attached phtotos from Disney Quest so you can see how empty it was - so many games light up but not working! See this article for... 2/5 S.

    Great behind the scenes look!

    4/5 Jen (Orem, UT) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ultimate Walt Disney World (Amazon Video) I can't believe there isn't a review for this DVD! What a fun movie! It is a wonderful look behind the scenes at some of the top thrill rides at The Walt Disney World Resort. Having never been to Disney World, I loved being able to see this preview of what a visit to the Magic Kingdom can hold. The best part of the movie is learning the story behind the rides- why they exist, and what is happening as you ride along through them. I loved it so much I have already shown it to my family. It made me immediately want to start packing my bags for a trip to the Magic Kingdom! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 30, 2012

We then enjoyed watching the Ultimate Walt Disney World and remembering all the fun rides again. It's also a good watch if you're planning on going and you want to learn about the rides before you arrive.

    Colorful, but Overlooks Some Key Disney Milestones

    3/5 M5 (Toronto) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Disney Book (Hardcover) This is a very colorful and easy-to-read Disney encyclopedia of sorts. It's hard for me not to enjoy a Disney book and for the most part I did enjoy this one. It is filled with tons of graphics and colourful pages, but for goodness sakes it overlooks some very critical events in the milestone timelines of the opening few pages. For example, not including the openings of Disney-MGM Studios in 1989 and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in 1998 is a pretty significant oversight for a book that purports to be some sort of Disney authority. Both the writer and the editors must have been asleep at the wheel to miss those two events. So take it with a grain of salt, but it it still enjoyable to read, despite missing some critical historical elements.

    A Very Useful Book, Handy, and Lets Others Know You're Looking for Hidden Mickeys

    Having this book made my twelve-year-old son's trip to Walt Disney World an over the top positive experience. Being a tweenage boy, he was concerned that Disney had a lot for girls and younger children. However, the Hidden Mickeys turned out to be something that was right up his alley, and this book proved to be a helpful resource to him in finding them.Before purchasing this book, we had simply considered getting a Hidden Mickey app. We figured that if we were already going to carry a device through the parks, adding an app wouldn't increase the bulk or the weight in our backpacks. (This was one of our concerns about purchasing a book.) We decided against an app, however, in large part due to the fact that our devices tend to be battery hogs; once a device goes down, an app would no longer be usable. So, we settled on a book.

    worth every penny, will purchase ebook for next visit

    5/5 Shelly J (Herndon, VA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets (Paperback) This book has made my trip so interesting. My whole family usually loves big thrill rides but 2 of my kids needed a tamer schedule this visit. We spent a lot of time on the fun activities and searching for hidden Mickeys. The one on the wall in Boma gave us a run for our money - we actually had to Google an image for an extra clue! Next time we plan a trip I will invest in the ebook, too. This was a rainy visit and my book needed to stay in a ziploc a lot. I also kept my phone in a ziploc, but the touch screen works through the plastic so the ebook would have been much easier to use.
