Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World For Grown-Ups

Creator: Eve Zibart, David Hoekstra | Travel - 2009-10-26

But we have not devoted space in this book to the “value” resorts (All-Star and Pop Century) because, obviously, these are the most family-oriented (meaning kid -centric) group in Walt Disney World, and that's not what we're about.

The Digital Copy included includes 3 .mp4 files (Disneyland Resorts: Behind the Scenes, Undiscovered Disney Parks, and Ultimate Walt Disney World) that you simply copy off the DVD yourself. There is no code to redeem through iTunes or Windows Media Player, but I did import them into the iTunes library.-Blu-Ray case is inside a cardboard slipcase.

    Everything you might want to know about the Disney Parks..

    Picked this set up today at one of the local stores. Thought I'd share some comments.The set consists of six DVDs, each in an individual thin case - which are stored in a cardboard sleeve. Most of the videos are "widescreen", but a few are "full screen" 1.33:1 ratio and they all lack close-captioning. These videos document what there is to do at the parks and attractions, with a lot of interviews of park employees and with actual customers. It does start to seem like a hour long commercial for Disney, but I guess that is expected given that it's a detailed look at a theme park and it's attractions.Listing of the discs;1) Walt Disney World Resort: Behind the Scenes. 52 minutes with two extra features; What's New in the Haunted Mansion & Stitch's Great Escape. Not sure just how long each of the extra features are - but they seem to be around 8~12 minutes. This DVD reminded me of the History Channel's documentary... 5/5 K.

    bluray vs dvd version

    0 5/5 crow11ad (Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Disney Parks: The Secrets, Stories and Magic Behind the Scenes [Blu-ray plus DVD and Digital Copy] (Blu-ray) I plan on picking these up in the near future...Please keep in mind that the 6 pack dvd version contains more then the blu ray. Why? Don't know...you would think all of it would be on blu ray. Just keep in mind that if you buy the blu ray that you get the same movies on dvd + 3 more and all the extras. Since blu ray players will up convert, it might be a better deal to go with the dvd version. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 5, 2010

    At last, Splash Mountain!

    From 1984-1997 I was quite possibly the world's biggest WDW fan. I then left for art school and my love for Disney was put on the back burner. I decided to look for WDW sites in late 2001 simply because I was bored, and I came across this CD. My love for WDW was completely rekindled because of this CD.I had spent several years looking for the music of the WDW version of Splash Mountain, but could only find songs to the Disneyland version. I played this CD and was simply amazed to find almost the entire soundtrack intact. It's superb. The sound quality is crystal-clear, is in full stereo and is rich and full. The CD is worth buying for this nearly 8-minute long track alone. Even the opossums that hang upside-down can be heard singing.I was also very pleased to find the entrance music to Alien Encounter. That certainly brings back memories.The only thing negitive I can say about this CD is that I wish it included more tracks from Epcot.

    Official Album--WDW Resort

    This latest version of the WDW Official Album is the best to come along so far. Past compilations have featured shortened versions of " a Pirate's Life", "Grim Grinning Ghosts", and Splash Mountain tracks, but this collection features almost full unedited versions, (ex. the Pirates track has almost all sections of the entire ride represented. Same for the Haunted Mansion. The Splash Mountain track contains all songs in the attraction as well as dialog from the final lift hill section before the drop. The small world track is from the actual attraction, instead of the version with adults singing, as has been found on past collections. The only thing I would add to the next collection would be the soundtrack from Spectromagic or the Main Street Electrical Parade. Other than that oversight, my family and I find this to be the best representation of music from the WDW parks so far.

Great music right out of the attractions. It is missing a few, like Space Mountain, Cinderella's Carousel, and the Theme from Animal Kingdom.

    It works but have no exciting content

    0 3/5 vjshanky (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Disney Parks (App) I downloaded the app thinking it will give a detailed overview of the disney parks. But no, the overview is very short and does not cover everything in the park. There are some nice videos of the park and rides, but nothing to be excited about. They could have done better (or maybe they dont want all park attractions and details to be out for everyone to see). But if you never have been to disney park, then this app is worth downloading and watching once. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 23, 2015

    Great behind the scenes look!

    0 4/5 Jen (Orem, UT) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ultimate Walt Disney World (Amazon Instant 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! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 30, 2012

    Ultimate Thrill Ride WDW

    0 5/5 Vanessa Maine (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ultimate Walt Disney World (Amazon Instant Video) Great overview of WDW's biggest thrill rides! We are planning a visit and this was a good litmus test of which attractions my 8-year old may like to see. Splash Mountain - Definitely! Expedition Everest - "perhaps if she closes her eyes so that she won't see the Yeti" (that's a No! for her and me, but Definitely! for my husband). My only comment is that this video focuses on the extreme thrill rides and not much else, so the name of the show is misleading. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 22, 2013

I'm not into roller coasters or things that move too quickly or unexpectedly, but this did make me aware of some rides that I didn't know existed. I've been to Walt Disney World, but obviously I didn't see everything. I will probably watch this again.
